at Hotel Der Waldhof, Zell am See
Feel at home with the Loferer family and the Waldhof team
More than seven generations of the Loferer dynasty have poured their hearts and souls into the hotel in Zell am See, which you can feel from the very moment your arrive. We welcome our guests just as we’d like to be welcomed when travelling: with natural warmth.
Josef Loferer VI.(Pepi) & Miranda Loferer
Pepi Loferer, the "backbone of the business", mastered his introduction to the hotel business excellently after an early training in the school of hard knocks by his father, who sadly died very young. Consequently, Pepi took the reins of the business early on. He is proudly looking forward to eventually passing on a healthy business to the next generation together with his wife Miranda, whom he married in February 2014. Miranda attends to our Waldhof guests and takes care of all outdoor activities, such as guided hikes to the Ebenbergalm. Both are a great source of knowledge about the region – and you as our guests benefit from their knowledge every day.
Josef Loferer VII. & Melanie Loferer
„The redevelopers of our business“ – where personal appreciation plays a decisive role. Josef VII & Melanie already became familiar with tourism from many different sides. Josef married “his Melanie”, whom he had already known since they attended school together in Bad Hofgastein, in January of 2013. Young and innovative knowledge leaves its mark on the hotel in Zell am See with his remarkable communication on topics, such as about the region, appreciation and personal management, to you. Melanie takes special care of culinary and decorative details so that you remember your holidays in a positive light.
Josef VIII. - „a perfect playfellow“ - was born in April of 2013. All of you benefit from his presence, provided that you’re in infancy. Thanks to him, we are freshly sensitised to our young guests and are constantly equipping the play room with new surprises. They are a positive contribution to our family and to our guests.
The team of our hotel Der Waldhof, Zell am See
Now let us introduce you to our orchestra. The most important part of our house. Our success depends on our team, and we’re constantly working on it. If we were to name everyone, the list would be very long, so we’ll representatively mention our chef Kurt for the cuisine – our regulars ask about him as soon as they arrive. Kurt has known our business for more than 20 years – he guarantees no culinary boredom by consistently testing new recipes and treating your palate to ravishing delights. Our sous-chef Andreas is part of the family. Guests remember him due to his kind ways and perfectly honed skills – we are delighted that he decided to leave the renowned Arlberg region and rejoin us.
Don’t forget our “sly dog” – Harry Fuchs, our bookkeeper and best friend of the family. The treasurer of our house, if you will. He is trusted with the keys when the family decides to take a time-out.
Bookkeeping aside, he takes care of procurement and also hosts the weekly wine tasting. All of the team are wholeheartedly there for you with kindness and professionalism, day in day out at the hotel Der Waldhof, Zell am See!
It is our pleasure to briefly introduce you to our house. All of our commitment is successful, only because we have the pleasure of welcoming such excellent guests.
Heaven repay you – we appreciate it
"We can count ourselves lucky to have such loveable and loyal staff, who are always receptive to the requests of our guests and have an inviting smile on their lips."
