The hotel had opened just a few days before we arrived. Many smaller things were still unfinished, not working or not ready, with a lot of landscaping and other works going on, so it was a bit surprising that they were charging normal rates anyway. Service was also a bit slow or unresponsive at times, as everybody was clearly in learning mode. However, the hotel did make up for it somewhat upon our departure with vouchers for a return visit. Once these kinks are worked out, it will be even better.
We had a junior suite and a family suite. The rooms are very nice: spacious, with elegant interiors, and equipped with high-end fixtures. The kitchen is stocked with some dishes and cutlery. The family suite already had integrated cooking plates and a microwave oven, and I believe they were about to install those in the junior suites too. From the (large) balcony you have a great view of the lake (all suites face the lake; from some on the lower floors you may see a bit less of it though).
There were some inconveniences, partly due to small design flaws (no place to put things in the shower, no towel hanger in the toilet, etc.), partly due to the rooms not being quite ready (no Internet yet, locks malfunctioning, etc.). Personally, I'd also find a water boiler more useful than the provided Nespresso coffee maker...
The pool is small but heated and just long enough to swim a bit. It gets a bit crowded with more than 2-3 people trying to swim though.
The hotel has its own lake access - like most, a grass beach with lounge chairs and some other facilities. It's maybe 50m walking from the hotel proper. Another nearby pension rents out various types of small boats, which is also very convenient.
Breakfast is rather expensive at 15 Euros/person, so we did not try it. We went to the town bakery for fresh bread instead (not really walking distance though).
Krumpendorf is a rather quiet and laid-back town compared to e.g. Pörtschach, so there aren't that many restaurants either. A very nice restaurant nearby is the Cafe Seeterrasse, a short walk away right on the lake.
Unfortunately, the two supermarkets are on the other side of town, which is again a bit too far to walk.
The train and bus stops are very close to the hotel though, which can be convenient (and because all the rooms face the other side, you can't hear the noise from them either).
