|"I didn't just enjoy my trip, I loved every single minute of it. From all your help with booking, and advice on the best way to travel to and from the hotel, until the end of my stay there, everything was fantastic. The Reiters Supreme hotel is five star through and through. The facilities are immaculate, the attention to detail is superb, the food was imaginative and delicious, and the staff were friendly, professional and attentive to just the right degree. One of the things that impressed me most was how many of the staff addressed the guests by name (and it is a big hotel) - including the first time they met you. I don't know how they managed that! And the riding really was a dream come true. As a teenager, I dreamt of riding a Lipizzaner and, on my fiftieth birthday, I did! The stables at the hotel are amazing with every facility a horse could need. They focus mainly on breeding and use only the mares for riding. So I rode a bay and a grey mare. (Not all Lipizzaners are white!) They also breed Shetland ponies and miniature horses. I had a lesson on the first day and a hack through the forest for the following four days - taking different tracks each day. For every ride, it was just me and the instructor. And on the last day, we had a gallop along the side of a field. I think I have probably run out of superlatives. I would, without hesitation, recommend the Reiters Supreme to anyone who wants to combine fabulous riding with total indulgence!"|| Sue|

|"I had a lovely time in Austria, the hotel was very nice and I was really impressed with the quality of the spa and the food. I enjoyed the riding (I had 2 private hacks on the last ride had one other person) I rode the same horse for the first 2 rides and a younger horse for my last ride out, I was very happy with this as the first horse was experienced and didn't spook etc. which helped me to get my confidence back up, but it was also good to ride a more frisky horse on my last day to add a bit of variety. The guides both spoke very good English and we had interested conversations in between cantering, the scenery is lovely (reminded me a bit of the Cotswolds) and I was lucky with the weather for April. The staff in the hotel were very friendly, I ate in the restaurant and buffet for 2 nights each (the restaurant is pretty formal so I would advise people to bring something smart to wear, or at least something different from jeans & jodphurs!) they provided me with an English copy of menu each day so I could decide where I wanted to eat. The spa was very nice with a good variety of different pools/saunas etc. I also had a massage on the separate treatment centre. Unfortunately most treatments were already booked up so I presume other guests book the treatments in advance, the beauty salon didn't have any available room until Tuesday afternoon. Overall I had a very relaxing time and really enjoyed riding the Lipizanners. I think that 4 nights is a perfect amount of time to stay there, although there are onsite activities (wine tasting, walking etc.)"|| Ceris, London|
|"We had a wonderful holiday and keep wishing we were back in Austria. The hotel exceeded our expectations in many ways. The staff were absolutely superb. They were very friendly and welcoming. The manager took time to speak to us every day and Karl Reiter the owner spoke to us personally, this made us feel valued and special which is nice. The food was absolutely wonderful. I don't eat meat so was a little worried about Austria, but there was always a fish or veggie choice every day. We were always looking forward to our meal at the end of the day! We were also suprised at how much else there was to occupy ourselves each day, especially for the non riders. The hotel put on different activities you could sign up to. For example we did an introduction to golf lesson, fortunately with an english instructor. We also enjoyed time in the spa every day. I also enjoyed the lessons. I certainly had learnt quite a bit when I went back, Sabine was trying to get rid of some of my 'warm blood' bad habits with the classical style. Certainly my horse back home is happy about it. I rode 2 5 year old stallions who were both wonderfully schooled, and showed up when I was doing things wrong, but when I did things correctly the results were great. In summary, we thought the hotel was good value for money and would have been much more expensive in the UK. We will definately return to the Supreme hotel."|| Stella from Shropshire|
|"It was undoubtedly one of the best holidayswe've ever had. The Reiter's Supreme Hotel was very comfortable. It was extremely (unusually I believe) hot when we stayed there (35/36 degrees) and guests should note that the hotel is not air conditioned. However one quickly adjusts to this and because it is a quiet place we were able to sleep with our balcony windows open every night. The facilities in the hotel are very good - it is luxurious and well run. I was particularly impressed with the massages I had at Merkur Recreation (and having originally trained as a masseuse I think I know a little about this!). The food is very good - the breakfast and evening buffets are extensive and it is good there are two choices of evening restaurant included within the package. We dined in the a la carte restaurant one night (at additional cost) and found this to be excellent. All the hotel staff are very friendly and polite and speak very good English - we were impressed that they provided an English guide to the day's events and meals each day. Of course our favourite part was the riding! The stables at the Supreme Hotel are very well run, in my opinion, and the facilities are excellent. Although the staff at the riding school spoke less English than the hotel staff generally, we managed OK. Riding the lipizzaners was a wonderful experience! I couldn't believe my husband had his first actual riding lesson on a Lipizzaner stallion (I told him this was a little like having your first driving lesson in a classic ferrari), and "Nemo" was a perfect gentleman and looked after him throughout. Having booked just one lesson to begin with, John was soon hooked and insisted on lessons every day culminating in a hack out in the woods on our last day! For myself I had a marvellous time working hard during my morning lesson in the indoor school,cooling off in the pool during midday, and then a return to the stables for an afternoon hack in the woods each day. What could be better! We also enjoyed interacting with the horses, and the staff at the stables were very happy for us to feed the horses apples, groom, tack them up etc under their supervision. I think we will be returning to the Supreme Hotel!"|| Sara & John Stopford-Pickering|
