It's a pity there are only 5 stars; if there were more, the Hirschen would get 10 out of 10!
Thanks to a recommendation, we are delighted to have discovered one of the best hotels in existence. I am away a lot on business, spending approx. 230 nights a year in hotels; but I have only found anything remotely as good among the top 5* luxury hotels. Excellent food, super cosy rooms, a brilliant wellness complex and the staff - simply sensational. Whether you visit on business, with your partner or with your family, this is really the best-kept secret of all times!
A truly wonderful hotel, with modern, super clean rooms. They have thought of absolutely everything. We felt so completely at home that we didn’t want to leave. The reception team were welcoming and looked after us very well. The wellness complex too is a little oasis of well-being. Comfy loungers, bath robes, slippers and even therapeutic teas were on offer.. The breakfast is simply unbelievable. In short, we can only recommend it wholeheartedly.

We didn't expect this!!!
For our boys’ trip away we were looking for a centrally located hotel as a base for our activities (snow-shoe walking in Bödele and nightlife in the town), and didn’t really look too closely at the hotel we had chosen. What we found was: super service, super rooms, a fantastic atmosphere, a great new wellness complex, excellent food with the best hotel breakfast I have ever had, made from delicious, fresh locally sourced produce. The hotel’s 4 stars are really well deserved. A return visit would be great – no, essential!
Dear Hirt family!
MANY thanks for yesterday’s specially prepared menu! We were all very positively surprised and had a great time.
Everything was great, from the wonderful table decorations, to the specially made menu card and the fabulous food. Obviously Gault-Millau has not yet discovered your establishment, otherwise you would be already be sporting two merits, and rightly so - everything was absolutely perfect. The recommended wine, “Bienenfresser” also hit the right spot, as can be seen from the bill! In this respect Chef de Rang Dietmar is a very good salesman, and the wine totally lived up to his recommendations. The Hotel Hirschen offers real value for money. The people of Dornbirn should be proud to have such an establishment in their town.
Many thanks to the entire kitchen and service team – we will be back.
Very best wishes,
Everything was perfect!
Tasteful rooms with stylish decor – even a yoga mat, umbrella, coffee machine, tea-maker, 2 flat-screen TVs, everything working perfectly.
I have rarely had the pleasure to occupy such a brilliantly unconventional room. Not overly large, but gave the impression of spaciousness – it has to be seen to be believed! I travel a lot and thought I had seen it all, but this really surprised me.
The breakfast buffet was 5*+, offered everything the heart desires, as well as a lot I hadn’t expected. The restaurant is a sensation for both the eyes and the palate, with an extremely good selection of excellent wines. My compliments to the owners, whose obvious style and taste, and attention to the well-being of their guests can only be warmly recommend.

A comfortable short break
How nice to find a combination of friendly staff, a stylish ambience and excellent cuisine. Our stay would have been made worthwhile by the incredible breakfast alone. We have visited a lot of places all over the world, but here the breakfast in particular blew us away. Our stay at the Hirschen was really enjoyable. The combination of top quality cuisine and friendly staff cannot fail to make every guest feel welcome – this is sincere heartfelt hospitality.

A great little break in Dornbirn, Vorarlberg!
What a lovely break, with typical Austrian service and an unbelievable breakfast buffet. It’s certainly worth staying here; even though the hotel is not located directly in the town centre, bikes are available for hire.

An impressive short break!
Little art works can to be found throughout the entire hotel, and even in the rooms. The decor is of very high quality. The buffet breakfast leaves nothing to be desired, and extra dishes are available on request at no extra cost. The staff are all really friendly and polite. Car parking is excellent and free of charge. We will definitely be back.
Top city hotel,top service,
A quite location, approx. 3 km from the centre of Dornbirn ca. 3 km. Bus stop outside the front door, railway station approx. 5 mins’ walk away. Both means of transport can be used to access the lakeside Festival in Bregenz. (Tickets are generally also valid for the ÖPNV.) A very peaceful position. The rooms are clean and well furnishes; the beds are sufficiently large and hard. Breakfast: the unanimous opinion of our friends: this was the best breakfast buffet that we had ever seen. Generous, varied, delicious. It was a brilliant idea to display the food in refrigerated compartments, visible from above through glass panels. As a result the food stayed cool and reduced the risk of bacteria to a bare minimum. This is truly a Ferrari among buffets. Dinner: we all had the char, and were extremely satisfied. I should also mention the excellent and very helpful staff, both in the reception as well as in the restaurant. Even the trainee (who we watched) did a really professional job of handling difficult guests with diplomacy.
On arrival we were greeted with a friendly smile and looked after well. Our rooms in the neighbouring building were clean, extremely well furnished with quality fittings. We accepted the fact that the electric switches need some getting used to – we used the relevant mood lighting instead. A lot of things have been individually designed with much love and attention to detail. Everything was perfectly clean and well cared for. Our lunch and dinner reinforced our first opinion: well-seasoned dishes prepared from high quality produce, attractively presented and very tasty. A delicious amuse-bouche, very friendly, attentive service – we were delighted with everything! The next day began with a staggering, generous breakfast with a huge selection of fresh, mainly locally sourced produce and an enormous variety of different tastes, some items seasoned with oriental spices, others featuring local products. The huge selection was simply remarkable! We have seldom partaken of such a grandiose breakfast buffet! All in all, this is a welcoming hotel in which you really feel at home, and a place to which you’d definitely want to return!
