We would like to draw your attention to the fact that some hotel services can be changed or even completely canceled due to a lack of a minimum number of participants or due to seasonal or weather conditions.

Later arrival/ earlier departure:

The hotel reserves the right to charge the full amount of the agreed fee in case of later arrival or earlier departure. The terms & conditions of The Austrian Hotel-, and Catering Trade are valid for the bookings.

Cancellation policy in 2022:

In response to the current situation, we have adjusted our cancellation policy for your holidays in 2022. We have made the cancellation conditions for all existing and new reservations more flexible.

Our aim is to offer you as much flexibility and planning comfort as possible for your holidays in 2022! Thank you for your loyalty and support!

Cancellation is free of charge 7 days or more prior to arrival

In case of cancellation within 7 days before arrival, we will issue a gift voucher in the value of the deposit already paid, which can be redeemed at our hotel at any time by prior arrangement. As the gift voucher does not expire, it is not possible to refund the deposit.

If there is a lockdown (official closure of the hotel) and / or the border to Austria is closed, the booking can be canceled at any time before arrival without incurring a penalty.

We recommend taking out travel insurance through Europäische Reiseversicherung, which currently also covers cancellations and travel interruptions due to a COVID-19 illness. Since corona disease from a guest is now an insurable risk, a free cancellation would not be possible without insurance!

The cancellation conditions are independent of whether the canceled rooms are rebooked fully or only partially.

General cancellation policy:

In case of cancelling your reservation, the terms & conditions of The Austrian Hotel-, and Catering Trade’s are relevant. Unsold room causes business loss, as we could sell it for another guest. This is the reason why we kindly ask you to inform us in time about your cancellation preferably in written form.

  • Cancellation fee 30 days or longer prior to arrival: 40% of the agreed price.
  • Cancellation fee 30 - 7 days prior to arrival: 70% of the agreed price.
  • Cancellation fee within 7 days prior to arrival: 90% of the agreed price.


If you arrive by train or plane, we will be happy to pick you up from the station or the airport (Klagenfurt) for a fee. Ask for our price offer.

Smoking policy:

All of our rooms are non-smoking. Since 2005, we have been committed to providing our guests with a smoke-free environment in our hotel in Bad Kleinkirchheim. This policy has received high praise from our guests!

We do provide designated smoking areas to accommodate the needs of guests who smoke such as the cigar room (closed area with ventilation and air condition), the hotel’s front entrance area and the terrace.

Travel insurance:

What if something happens unexpectedly? You may not be able to begin your holiday, or may have to leave earlier. For such cases, secure yourself, and take out simple passenger insurance together with your accommodation, which costs 5 % of the travel expenses. For further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
