Seefeld has around 60 hotels including an excellent choice of 5-star and 4-star hotel accommodation, a similar number of B&B pensions and over 150 apartment houses spread throughout the village.
Seefeld has one 5-star superior hotel, the impressive Interalpen-Hotel Tyrol and three 5-star hotels, the best of which is probably Hotel Klosterbräu in the village centre, which was fashioned out of a 15th -century monastery by the Seyrling family who still run the hotel today.
There are about forty 4-star hotels including a number of 4-star ‘select’ hotels that have the facilities to upgrade to 5-star but prefer not to for reasons of economy (5-star properties need a much higher staff/guest ratio). The Kaltschmid family-run Alpenpark is a new 4-star select hotel cleverly constructed to look like a series of traditional Alpine gasthofs.
Most hotels are either privately owned or part of a group belonging to a local family enterprise. The Kaltschmid family, for instance, own six different hotels in and around Seefeld. There are very few chain hotels. The 5-star Hotel Astoria Relax & Spa located to the north of the centre of the village is a superior example.
Dorint Vital Day Spa Seefeld is a large modern 5-star hotel structure outside the village, very convenient for the Rosshutte cable cars, and with a 3,500 m² spa dedicated to providing holistic well-being and natural health. It’s part of a chain that has hotel properties in Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic and Spain.
AlpenMedHotel Lamm offers something a bit different. This stylish 4-star modern glass structure behind the church in Dorfplatz employs a team of physicians and therapists to take the idea of a healthy holiday beyond the gentle joys of well-being. Food is imaginative and there’s an excellent gym.
Krumer’s Post Hotel is a newly renovated 4-star hotel with a new indoor pool and spa and wellness facilities including three separate spas (Finnish, organic, and infrared) as well as an aroma therapy steam room, and two relaxation rooms with waterbeds and panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. Coming summer 2011, the Krumer’s Post will also feature an indoor pool.
The village is peppered with colour-coded hotel direction signs so it’s easy to find your way between hotels. Most hotels conform to the Tyrolean stereotype of fretwork balconies under a long, gently sloping wooden roof, with low ceilings and wooden panelling inside. Finding something different, like the AlpenMedHotel Lamm, takes some looking but the tourist information office off Dorfplatz operate an accommodation service that is helpful and can prove a money-saver if you turn up on spec.
