Five Generations for our Guests

We are your proud hosts, the fifth generation of the family. Looking after other people runs in the Dilly blood: to care for you and to provide you with a memorable holiday at our beautiful home.

From a tavern to a 4-star-superior hotel

Dilly was obviously not founded in 1906 as a wellness, golf and family hotel in Austria. Our roots are in a small tavern and farm, which our family, with plenty of passion and hard work, has turned into one of the most popular hotels in Upper Austria.
Today, Horst Dilly - a passionate sommelier and on numerous occasions businessman of the year - his wife Marion Dilly, Christoph and Kathrin Dilly as well as Oma and Opa Dilly welcome you. We have set ourselves and our employees a target: to inspire and delight you, and to offer you a family-friendly, relaxing and sporting holiday.

Our history clearly shows that we were always open for change, but have always remained true to ourselves.
