This hotel and the entire resort caters, first priority, for the British. The hotel's service was first class - German was a language rarely heard. The dinner meal was disappointing - usually a smallish piece of unhappy meat or fish on a bed of chopped vegetables. Nothing Austrian about it. All was served with great decorum: a triumph of style over content. Having slated dinner, the other offerings were generous but not especially Austrian. I missed the prospect of authentic Austrian cooking. This I contrast with any decent UK pub or restaurant. As for the skiing, there were zillions of ski lemmings - crowded lifts - happy folks enjoying this but not me. A thoroughly commercialised resort and hotel for Britons who, apparently, care not a jot for being in a foreign country. I stopped for a coffee and in strode a Brit who ordered in English without any attempt at the local language. OK, I'm naive and some would say, "grow up" it's the others who should learn English if they want our trade". Final word: "Zell am Essex"
