Stayed here in July 2013 and loved it. Such a beautiful setting with the mountains above and river and falls below. We enjoyed the hot pool and spa, had a lovely meal at the Waldhaus Restaurant and good service at reception and concierge.
Our only problem was the first room they gave us on Floor 9 had noise from the elevator which kept us awake. We heard whining noise and then a bang every time the elevator came up. The view was to die for over the river and golf course, but after the first night we decided sleep was more important so asked to change. This they did very willingly. We packed our bags and left them inside the room and went out for the day. On return we were given new keys and went up to our new room with our bags already inside. This room also had an amazing view, looking onto the falls and we had a wonderful sleep! Both rooms were spacious.
So I recommend making sure you get a room away from elevators! We also found the internet very slow. Other than this we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
