1984 – 2012
In 1984, Siegfried and Monika Plattner continued the family business by creating a small but fine wellness oasis at the entrance to the Ötztal. Much love to the detail, made to measure services for all guests and their individual needs as well as a certain responsibility towards this traditional place have remained over the last generations. Therefore the old name of the house - "Seehüter" - was adapted again.
Our hotel – known as "Seehüter" – has been a family-run business since 1776.

Later the house was modernized by Hilda and Thomas Plattner with great efforts and a high level of commitment before Siegfried und Monika became the new hotel owners in 1984. A story of success!
