BAD LEONFELDEN. Even if there was no snow and cross-country skiing or skiing was no longer possible in the region, the sunshine gave the guests in the Mühlviertel a nice last holiday weekend. When the last guest has left today, the Falkensteiner Hotel Bad Leonfelden will also take a longer break. But the program does not include deceleration and idleness. In fact, the general renovation of the hotel will get serious over the next few days: the hotel, which opened in 2009, will be subjected to a fresh cell treatment with immediate effect and thus made fit for the “promotion” to four-star superior operation. The reopening is scheduled for April 5th.

“We were still open during the holidays, now the construction work is starting,” says hotel manager Heide Perndorfer at the start of the renovation on January 9th. All areas of the hotel will be included in this: the 117 rooms will have new floors, sanitary facilities and furniture, and the junior suites will have new infrared saunas. In addition, the wellness areas will be newly adapted. The range of relaxation rooms will be expanded and the fitness center enlarged. In addition, there is a new show kitchen in the restaurant, a completely new color concept and, from spring, a revamped outdoor area.

In total, the renovation will cost around 4.5 million euros. Part of the added value remains in the region: for example, the master builder work is carried out by the Kapl company from Bad Leonfelden. The roots of the hotel in the Mühlviertler Hochland also play a major role in terms of staff: Many of the 58 employees dock during the construction work as seasonal workers with other tourism and gastronomy companies in the region.

“We have tried to find the right individual solution for each employee. In addition, there is a re-employment guarantee for all 58 employees, which is sweetened with a corresponding bonus,” says Heide Perndorfer on the prospects for the hotel team, which, apart from a few employees, will no longer be needed in the coming months. Perndorfer is not afraid that she could be without a team when it reopens in April: “Of course, such a conversion is a turning point – but I am confident that our employees will stay with us,” says the hotel manager.

Adapted alignment

With the reopening in spring, the employees and guests will be faced with an adapted orientation of the hotel. On the one hand, it will be upgraded to the four-star superior segment – and on the other hand, even more space will be given to the “all-inclusive” philosophy. “With our new all-inclusive concept, our guests can be sure that there are no hidden additional costs,” explains Heide Perndorfer. The corresponding booking packages will not only apply to longer stays, but also to day guests: After the renovation, they are welcome back in the house, as are holiday and overnight guests.
