Hotels and restaurants in Zell am See-Kaprun set standards
Bertelsmann Guide: MAVIDA and Schloss Prielau are hotel and restaurant of the year
(lifePR) (Zell am See, )Nowhere else in Austria can guests spend their nights in a more relaxed way and dine better than in Zell am See-Kaprun. That is the conclusion of the great restaurant and hotel guide 2011, also known as the 'Bertelsmann Guide'. The hotel 'MAVIDA Balance Hotel & Spa' as well as restaurant Schloss Prielau, both of them situated in the popular holiday region in the heart of Pinzgau, were able to win over the editorial team and received top marks in their respective category. When looking for the best restaurant and the best hotel, the jury chose two establishments in Zell am See- Kaprun as its winners.
In the opinion of the Bertelsmann Guide experts Zell's MAVIDA Balance Hotel & Spa is more than just a hotel but a holiday residence of international standard. 'Cordial service, beautifully designed rooms, haute cuisine, and fantastic wellness offers harmoniously join hands here', write the guide's editors. Hotel owner Ilona Hagleitner is excited to have received the title 'Austria's Best Hotel of the Year 2011'. 'We are so proud! This award encourages and inspires us to outperform ourselves again and again.'
When looking for culinary delights, Zell am See-Kaprun is the place to go, too. After all, it is home to the stately home Schloss Prielau which has been awarded the title 'Austria's Best Restaurant of the Year 2011'. The jury was enthralled by the dishes created by prize-winning chef Andreas Mayer who has been awarded two stars by the Michelin Guide, too. Happy to try out new things, daring, and visionary were the attributes that the Bertelsmann editors used to describe his cuisine. It can be assumed that they are referring to the innovative concept 'Nosing and Tasting' which stimulates the taste buds as well as the scent.
'We refine our dishes with perfume. This makes perfect sense considering that the human nose can distinguish as many as 4,000 scents. This concept is extraordinary and enjoys great popularity among our guests', says Annette Mayer, managing director of Schloss Prielau.
Both awards demonstrate the elevated and ambitious service philosophy of Zell am See-Kaprun. Accommodation providers and restaurants such as Rudolfshof in Kaprun which has been decorated by familyselect (four of five possible points) as well as amiamo Familotel in Zell am See, placed in the highest category Q3 by the Swiss tourism association, are among the first-class award-winning houses in the region.
