“Four hundred thirty two”- counts my daughter after checking finally from her camera dial, she declared, “Can you imagine Dad, I took 432 photos in last 2 hrs?
I was not surprised, my hands were tired as I was holding my handycam for last 2 hrs, my neck was stiffened due to frequent movement for last 2 hrs seeing right and left, up and down. We were travelling from Innsbruck to Zell Am See and were thrilled by the amazing sceneries! I knew it was scenic route but never imagined it to be so beautiful!
We got down at Zell Am See in the afternoon 4pm on 20th September 2012. It is a station between Innsbruck and Salzburg. Deep blue sky, royal blue lake and snow-capped mountains surrounding the lake mesmerised us. It felt like we were in heaven.
We followed the rail line from the direction we came and after walking 250m, we found our new home- Hotel Seeof. The hotel is on the lake, only a train line separating the hotel from the lake. The moment we entered the hotel, we loved it! It was perfectly complimenting the beauty surrounding us. The lady in the reception was worried as to why we reached late? Actually, we gave them a message long back in the email that we would be reaching around 12noon. She became very happy the moment she saw us as if we had just returned home. She handed over a city map, highlighting the important landmarks, an adventure guide and provided the vital information about the local bus.
We got room no 30 and after opening the door we were again amazed! What a beautiful room! In fact it was a suite with 2 rooms, plenty of furniture and 3 lake facing windows. Room was comfortable and neat and clean. We found a few chocolates as a welcome present. There was some rhythmic but very faint sound from the trains running on the railway line in front of the hotel which helped us to enjoy a sweet dreamy feeling.
Next day, we had a brilliant breakfast. Friuts, eggs, becon, bread, cake, tea, coffee- it included everything to satisfy us.
After breakfast, we asked the hotel staff about the location of Bus stand. The all-time friendly staff gave us crystal clear instructions on the map. It took 5 mins to reach the Bus stand from where we took bus 71 to reach Schmittenhohe. We took cable car to reach the summit at 2000m and got an amazing 360 degree view of snow peaks.
After that we came back to the bus stand and this time we took Bus no.670 to take another breath taking journey to Krimml waterfalls. We went to the top of the falls by walking 4km and 1500ft up.
We came back to hotel, fully satisfied with the scenery witnessed for the whole day. When we entered the room, we found a beautiful fragrance in the room which was again left after cleaning by the hotel staff. To us, it was one of the best value for money hotel we have stayed in. The hotel added to the liking of Zell am See. We left the hotel on the next day as we had planned to go to Salzburg. We promised in our heart to Zell am See and Hotel Seeof that we would come back here very soon. Not just for 2 days but will stay much longer.
We are waiting eagerly for that opportunity.

Just back from having a lovely stay at this hotel. It's well situated for both the lake and central town of Zell Am See and we received a very warm welcome and excellent / friendly customer service from all the staff throughout our stay. The room was very clean, well presented and maintained and the food was super with plenty of choice at both breakfast and dinner times. The railway and trains can be a problem if you let it but honestly you forget about them after a short while and see the positives of having the station close at hand to explore the wonderful area even more. Would i stay there again?.....without doubt....a lovely hotel and fantastic people.

Lovely hotel very near the shore of the lake just two or three minutes walk from town centre. We received a very warm welcome from the friendly and helpful staff. Fantastic selection for breakfast, superb choice of evening meals. Comfortable rooms, we had a large balcony facing the lake, the only negative is the railway runs between the hotel and the lakeside promenade but the trains did not really bother us. We had a wonderful holiday and would not hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: Trains do run past the front of the hotel facing the lake but it is worth it for the views. There is a lift to 3 floors but then steps up to 4th floor rooms.

Amazing stay at the seehof! From the minute we arrived till the moment we left the staff were brilliant. The food was of a high standard with plenty of choice. Our room wasn't facing the lake but still had a lovely view of the church and mountain. It was kept immaculately clean throughout our stay and had little extras such as tea and coffee and a safe which was free of charge. There was some noise from the railway line running in front of the hotel but this was not a big issue even at night. Expecting a basic hotel due to the three stars we were extremely surprised at what we were greeted with. Best value for money hotel we have stayed in!
