Well, this is a village everything nears your place, Ferry is coupla minutes walk and shops are every where. The Hotel it self is awesome, their early breakfast and their bar as well. Owners and staff of this Hotel are very nice and helpful, just point what you need. And you must taste their cake ;)

We walked around St Gilgen as we had not booked anywhere and Pension Ferstle stood out as a well kept, friendly pension in a great location. I was a bit worried when we were given the very top floor but Michael carried my (very heavy) bag on his shoulder up 4 flights of stairs. The room was clean and attractively... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Pension Ferstl and in the beautiful town of St. Gilgen. The young man that was in charge, I think he was the nephew of the owner, was very helpful and couldn't do enough to make our stay a pleasant one. The breakfast was very good and plentiful. The wifi was free and... More

I have absolutely no complaints. Very nice place with attentive personnel. Very good breakfast buffet. Location is very good, near the lake and main points of interest in St. Gilgen. You can reach Hallstatt in 40 minutes by car. Fully recommend the pension!

Pension Ferstl was delightful. As is your host Monika.....who see;s what you need before you even know it. After many years in hospitality, Monika knows how to make you feel special.From arrival invitation to welcome cake and coffee....to the little special things she does around the pension...like leaving nuts with the nutcraker, and little cookies, and candels up the stairs...

Perfect location for a visit of the lake region, in a pretty village by a lake. Only 40 minutes from Salzburg. Our room didn't have much charm. It was very basic with minimal decoration and comfort, but clean and functional. Shower was minimalist and we had to let the water run about 10 minutes to get hot water. The breakfast... More

I absolutely adored this little gem of a pension. It sits right across the street from the church in town, about a five-minute walk to the lakeshore. Frau Ferstl could not have been nicer, or the rooms cosier. Breakfast was absolutely stunning, with a huge variety of breads, cheeses, meats, cereals, et al. My only (mild) discomforts come from the... More
