I had booked them through only because of the central location and reasonable prices. However the location turned out to be phenomenal. We had taken the Lakeview rooms on the top floor and the view from the balcony was to die for. The owners took great care of us and my little brat of 5 years was given special attention.... More

There is a fusty / unclean / smokey smell about the whole building. I was glad to get out of the place in the morning to get away from the smell. The upholstery in the bedroom was dirty and stained. A electric socket in the bedroom was hanging off the wall. The corn flakes and other cereals at breakfast were... More

There are few places that are ass well located as the Menkens villa. Only a few steps from the center of St Wolfgang which gives visitors plenty of choice. The Schafbergbahn is located about a kilometer away, an easy walk. Smoking is allowed on the premises but it didn't bother me much even though I don't particularly like the smell... More

We found the Garni Pension Menkens to be exactly as advertised. Room was large, clean, and suited our needs for our 4 nights stay. On site parking was great, quiet location, free wifi and so close to everything in St Wolfgang. Breakfast was excellent and very adequate.Manfred makes a great omelette. Familie Menkens were very friendly, helpful and courteous, gave... More

Great cosy place with friendly host. Love the balcony view. Breakfast is included and great. Simply love the place. Will stay there more than 1night if I were to return to Austria. Abit of steps to reach the hotel though as it's slightly up the hill. Room view overlook the lake.

Pension is located 50 m from the center of ST. Wolfgang with private parking. We stayed at Menkens for one night. House is divided into several floors. Rooms are clean, but furnished with old furniture.Breakfast is a continental classic, is very varied. Path to Schafbergbahn takes 8 -10 minutes.

We stayed at Menkens for two nights. The arrival was a challenge because we had to drive up to a very(!) steap road. The Menkens family are very kind and the breakfast was great. The view at room 6 was great, with a view at the Wolfgangsee. The bed was a little to small for me (my hight +\- 1.80m).... More

We stayed for 4 nights and loved our time in St Wolfgang. The hotel is only a few minutes from town. Within 5 minutes you can be in the town square or beside the lake. The room was very pleasant. We had a lake view and our room enjoyed great views., As the weather was good we sat outside in... More

I have stayed in this hotel several times, the first time I was worried as we usually stay somewhere bigger and more expensive but from arrival up a steep hill, but hey its Austria!!!!! Which does have a clearly marked signpost at the bottom, to leaving, we enjoyed our stay. Frau and Herr Menken (Manfred and Hannelore) do their very... More
