Ortners' Eschenhof - Alpine Slowness

Time for me, time for you, time for us...Experience a holiday with a new sense of time at Eschenhof!

Spend an enjoyable holiday in an absolutely quiet location right in the centre of Bad Kleinkirchheim. Revitalise yourself amidst the nature of the biosphere reserve. Whether by bike, e-bike or with your hiking shoes in summer, or with snow shoes or skis in the wintery Nockberge, one thing is for sure: you will leave everyday life far behind and be in close touch with nature.

You will feel quite at home in the "large living room" of Eschenhof. The cosy rooms and family apartments have modern interiors with many thoughtful details and are a personal oasis of tranquillity for every guest.

Time for yourself, time for your partner, for the family: find complete relaxation to suit all requirements in the family wellness area with an outdoor and indoor pool and in the spacious Eschenhof spa with beauty treatments, massages, quiet oases, various sauna attractions and a separate adult area.

The organic meals from the regional "Green Toque Cuisine" will make your healthy holiday for your body and spirit perfect!

Children are also well taken care of. Eva and the kids' pavilion await children every day with fun and creative games ideas - with and in nature.

"Mountains of holiday fun"...

...in SUMMER: guided hikes, mountain bike trails from the hotel, free tennis on our tennis courts. Greenfee price reductions at the Bad Kleinkirhheim-Kaiserburg golf course...

...in WINTER: lifts and pistes within walking distance (about 5 minutes), peace and quiet away from the pistes on snow shoe hikes in unspoilt nature, cross-country skiing on our perfectly prepared trail in the valley, winter hiking trails right from the hotel, daily soup voucher for our hut Maibrunnhutte, from March ski pass included in the price of your stay, Family Euro with special ski pass rates for families, free shuttle to the ski school...

...the WHOLE YEAR: "Nature Experience" - guided nature experiences introducing you to the beauty and diversity of the Nockberge.

Equipment hire: free hire of rucksacks and poles, mountain bikes, e-bikes, and in winter snow shoes and sledges.

You are welcome to bring your four-legged friend to our hotel, but you are kindly requested to inform us in advance.

We stayed in this lovely family-run hotel for 7 days, 2 adults 2 kids. Very friendly and helpful staff at the reception and restaurant. Breakfast was rich and could cater to all tastes. Regional bio products are served here. For the dinner you are served with 5-course menu and if that’s not enough try the cheese cart and/or several scoops of delicious ice cream for extra dessert. Spa are had a heated pool indoors and outdoors. Steam and Finnish sauna for your choice. The region has lots of activities for kids and adults. We did family-friendly hiking with lama’s, Hedi Alm park and Granatium museum to name a few. You will be given a tourist card at the reception that gives you free access to all these and more activities in Carinthia. All in all great hotel and will be looking forward our return in future. Regards, Akmal

We can really recommend this hotel for summer vacation in Bad Kleinkirchheim. Excellent beds, very good and healthy breakfast, good wellness accommodation, friendly service, very personal contact with the hotel owner. Its at walking distance from some cable lifts to the Nockbergen Mountains where you can do endless beautiful hikes.

This is our first time in this Austrian Ski Resort, that's why this review will be longer than usual. Hotel Pros: great location, very clean and spacious rooms. Hotel Cons: food, service, counting on daily leaflets than speaking with newcomers, pretending to be eco-friendly - but more as marketing strategy, not in systematic way. We found the hotel via our travel agent - the main requirement was to be close to ski lifts and to have its own spa. The hotel fulfills these requirements partially. The hotel has perfect location, also it is equipped with 2 swimming pools, spa area for adults only, and sauna and steam bath next to the internal pool. In the mornings the SPA area is just perfect - empty, so we enjoyed the silence and the pool. The sauna and steam baths are not working till 3 p.m., but I enjoyed the infrared sauna. At the afternoons all the Spa area is really full of people, and thus - unpleasant. We couldn't enter in the Salt steam bath in the adult's section at the afternoons. Hint: I would recommend to avoid going in spa center after 4-5 p.m., in case you like to silence and solitude, having in mind that you cannot enjoy sauna for free. Food: good, but monotonous breakfast, option to have some soup and snacks in lunch time. I am disappointed from the dinners - despite the efforts to present the food in a 'gourmet' style, the quantity was very minimalistic. Also if you have for example pumpkin soup for lunch, the same soup will be served for dinner - but in a gourmet style ;-) The vise versa was also true - dishes for dinner we could find the next day. The service in the dining room was very dis-satisfactory (with only one exception of qualified and quick waitress during the NY dinner), especially the timing. Part of the staff looked inexperienced, taking dishes while we were talking or taking pictures, we were waiting the next dish for an hour, etc. Hint: If you want timely serving, try to have table in more central part of the dining room. External services: Be careful, if you expect support from the hotel for your ski experience. We counted on the hotel to guide us how we could book children ski school, and we lost half of the first day, because the ski cards were issued by the hotels' reception with a wrong date. Hint: Plan and book your ski in advance via internet, or going to ski center out of the hotel. ECO: The hotel pretends to be eco-friendly - you won't find room cosmetics (!!! but you could buy such). Every day we received at least 2 paper leaflets with menu, or daily activities. No matter what paper is used, it is far away for eco-friendly policy. If a hotel is eco, there won't be cut-off Christmas tree instead of alive one at the back yard. The eco-policy in this hotel is not a system, whole standard - but announced eco partial, sometimes contradictory measures.

Overall the hotel was good, food good and lovely staff. The out side pool was to small for us but better than no pool. We love swimming outside. The area is very nice, we did do something different every day. Recommend hiring the e bikes from the hotel they are so much fun. you can take them on the cable car and cycle down.

We were very satisfied with this hotel. Overall feeling is "a kind´a of home with great services". You could always find something, but we saw the best - friendly and helpful staff, fantastic food. The location is good also - near to skislopes. As I have travelled the great piece of earth as TC representative and have seen a lot of hotels, I would recommend Ortners Eschenhof definitely to my friend. Good job, people, go further this way! And thank you for nice vacation.
