10/10 Exceptional

The property is about a kilometer out of town, so you will need a car. But it is right at the base of the mountain with the stream running in front. It was very clean, with new carpet. The dining room is beautiful, natural wood, and excellent food was served. It is family run, so you won't see a lot of staff around, but someone was always available. Clean, comfortable, and quiet - perfect for me.

2/10 Poor

Shocking - the worst stay of my life
I don't know who I am angrier with - Expedia who moved us to the Waldesruh or the stupendous "inn keeper" who does not know the first thing about hospitality or how to even use his own credit card machine. It was the worst stay of my life - the rooms were shabby, there was no water in the pool, the breakfast - words can not describe how bad this was other than to say I only looked at breakfast once and on the second day opted for pringles. If you would like to test your survival instincts or just to make you want to feel much better about your worst hotel experience up to this point this would be a great option. Otherwise it would appear you didn't have your reading glasses as you were clearly unable to read this - sorry. Oh and the only reason I gave half a star is because I was unable to give negative stars and would suggest that the person who awarded 4 stars either did so many many years ago and has not been back in quite some time or is currently an angry sadist who hates children and kicks puppies as a hobby and badly needs a sense of smell and spectacles.

It is a Pansion, not a Hotel. But a good one.
This is a very-very nice Pansion, but do not expect a Hotel. It is 20 km away from the Hochkar ski resort, and has reasonable prices. We only found bed and breakfast offer on Expedia, but they also offer half board. Ask for it, it saves you a lot of time and effort solving the dinner question each night. They also call themselves a restaurant, but when we were there only the guests who stayed there had dinner, and we were the only ones ordering from the menu. The menu is poor, and the food is typical austrian. Don't expect too much, you are not in italy or france. The rooms are very big, in our room they had a separate bathroom and toilet, which was very nice. The fit out is rather old, the 80's style, but functional and clean. The parking is also big, they also have a ski room to store the skies, but it is not heated, so it is not good to leave the boots there. They offer free wifi, but it is not the fastest. Enough for e-mails though.

Das Zimmer war sehr sauber und ruhig, die Küche könnte besser sein. Etwas überhöhter Preis.

6/10 Good

Positiv: Kostenloser Parkplatz, Zimmergröße, Nähe zu den Ausflugszielen Negativ: Sehr alte und abgewohnte Ausstattung für ein 4 Sterne Hotel. Unangenehmer Geruch im Zimmer. Servicedame beim Frühstück sehr unfreundlich und schlecht gelaunt. Preis viel zu hoch.

War einen Tag in dem Hotel. Das Hotel ist sehr in die Jahre gekommen und benötigt dringend einen „neuen Anstrich“. Personal war allerdings freundlich und aufmerksam.

Ganz passabel - bei nicht zu hohen Ansprüchen
Wir waren nur eine Nacht im Waldesruh und die war ganz OK. Freundlicher Empfang, schönes großes Zimmer mit Vollholzmöbeln, die zwar nicht der neuesten Mode entsprechen aber in bestem Zustand waren. Großer Flachbild-Fernseher, Audioanlage, Radiowecker, Bad und WC getrennt - das hätten wir nach dem schnellen Einchecken im Foyer so nicht erwartet. Dort und auch außen könnte mal etwas aufgefrischt werden. Die Balkonsessel sind schon ziemlich verwittert, haben uns aber locker ausgehalten. Der Pool war sehr angenehm, auch wenn er schon etwas in die Jahre gekommen ist. Dafür gluckst, röchelt und plätschert einem wenigsten keine Überlaufrinne den ganzen Tag die Ohren voll. Der Speisesaal ist trotz rustikaler Ausstattung angenehm hell, heller als auf dem Bild der Website. Das Frühstück war OK, könnte aber mit etwas mehr Liebe angerichtet werden. Wünsche wurden sofort erledigt, sofern man sie jemandem mitteilen konnte. Abends gegen 22:00 Uhr waren Restaurant, Bar und Foyer aber bereits total verwaist - weder Angestellte noch Gäste wurden gesichtet. Letztere waren dafür auf dem Zimmer hörbar, was uns aber nicht weiter störte, denn wir haben immer Ohrstöpsel dabei. Waldesruh herrscht aber sonst wirklich! So sehr, dass manches Auto auf der 100 m entfernten Straße deutlich zu vernehmen war. Doch der Verkehr ist moderat. Bei der Abreise gibt der Hausherr gern ein paar Tips für Ausflüge und suchte uns extra ein Infoblatt zur sehr empfehlenswerten Wasserlochklamm. Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt.
