“Very fond of this hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This was my second time in this hotel. It would be wrong not to praise this hotel. Once more, I liked everything - the location is great for those who travel by train. Receptionists are very kind, friendly, talkative. Rooms are ok. The last time - I was in a back hall, this time I got the main room that overlooks the main street, with flowers outside of window. So alpine, so romantic. Those who write complaints are those who seek perfections and they will never find that on this planet until they change their closed minds. Unlike in Slovenia, there are no annoying room cleaning in the early morning, eager to throw you out of room. Even though the room was at the main street, once the window was closed I didn't have problem with street noise, I slept like a baby.

We booked this hotel in Villach for one night as a stopover between Venice and Salzburg. It is located in a charming street of shops and restaurants.
When we walked into the hotel it immediately smelt like cigarette smoke, which we later found out came from the restaurant which allowed smoking in some parts of it - inside. This is certainly a huge turn off and we only ate there for our breakfast that we had already paid for.

The room was very outdated in decor but spacious. The toilet was very weird as the hole with water is at the front and there is a little ledge that your "business" sits on - kind of like a viewing platform. After 2.5 weeks on holiday and a very bad diet - the room stank after every visit! We later found out that some Europeans don't like the splash back which is why the toilet was designed that way.

One thing that saves this hotel is the lovely receptionists who spoke sufficient English.

Fabulous location, close to everything, lovely, friendly staff.
Rooms are spacious, but old. Very old. I really wish I could have loved the hotel, because the staff were so nice. A bit of a renovation and I'm sure it'd be wonderful.

My biggest gripe though, was that in the attached indoor restaurant, smoking was allowed and with zero ventilation, it was disgusting even walking past the restaurant entrance (in the hotel lobby).

Room Tip: All have a nice view, the higher the better.

Stayed there before going to slovenia. Prices were very reasonable and the room was quite nice. . Nothing negative to say! QUite near the train/bus station. Breakfast was tasty but it could have offer a bigger selection,

We had spent two wonderful days in Salzburg and drove to Villach enroute to Slovenia and spent a night at the Hotel Goldenes Lamm. The reason we stayed at this hotel is because they had a secured parking lot. It was unfortunate the day we arrived it rained in the evening. We arrived in the afternoon near the end of September and found that the village square was very quiet. A big difference from Munich and Salzburg. We figured it was because it may have been the end of the tourist season. We had booked in advance a non-smoking room and also a room away from the street as we had heard it could be noisy. When we enterred our room it smelled like smoke and asked to be moved. They gave us two other options and we chose the room near the middle away from the laundry room. The room they provided us faced the right side of the hotel. The young lady at the front desk was very pleasant and smoke English very well. The breakfast was your usual European breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the streets and insist on a non-smoking room.

We made the Goldenes Lamm one of our stopover hotels enroute from Croatia to UK having stopped over in 2008. Our main reason to stop here was the excellent restaurant in the Hotel sadly the restaurant was closed ( Monday night ?) We did go to a nearby restaurant in a adjacent Hotel which was awful and expensive, in the morning we could not go to breakfast due to the effects of the evening meal, but we where still charged for breakfast by the Goldener Lamm. The Hotel does have a secure enclosed car park which is good.

We stayed in Villach as we were leaving the next day on the early Intercity Bus to Venice. We stayed the night before and the night after Venice. the first night we had a standard triple room- clean, comfortable-nothing special. The next night we had an upgraded room. By all means- spend the extra $20-$30 Euro- the decor, furnishings etc were soooooooo much better.- Plus the upgraded room had a/c and it was over 100F! We found the front desk staff to be very friendly and helpful. It felt like staying with family!
The hotel offers on site parking- is located on the pedestrian zone, and is only only a few block walk to the train station. Great find!

Room Tip: Spend the little extra for the upgraded room. It is in the main part of the hotel, has air conditio...
