About Pension Stadlmühle
Run by the Steiner family, the Pension Stadlmühle, is a traditional Austrian guesthouse with a combination of hotel-style and apartment-style rooms. The Steiners have welcomed UK school groups to the Zell am See/Kaprun region for many years. The pension is situated 2km from the centre of the village of Bruck. The Zell am See Lifts (Areitbahn) are just a 6km drive away, while the Maiskogel and Kitzsteinhorn lifts in Kaprun are a further 10-minutes' drive down the valley.
Beginners start on the beginners’ area opposite the Areitbahn gondola then progress to the Glocknerwiese at the top of Areitbahn 1. From here they have access to the whole Zell am See ski area. Later in the week they can progress to the ski areas of Kaprun, including the Kitzsteinhorn glacier, which has lifts above 3000m.
The hotel has a total of 68 available beds spread over 3 floors. Students are generally accommodated in spacious 2-5 bedded rooms. Teachers are mainly accommodated in 2-4 bedded rooms. All rooms are en suite and equipped with a TV and a hairdryer. Towels are provided for all guests. Most rooms also have a private balcony.
A damage deposit may be payable on arrival.
The hotel has a large, traditional dining room, which can seat over 70 guests, with a bar that also sells soft drinks and snacks. The dining room can also be used as a meeting room for evening activities.
Breakfast and dinner are served buffet style and a packed lunch is made up at breakfast to take to the slopes. Tap water and squash are available at all meals. A salad buffet is provided at dinner.
