The Forrsterhof Hotel is situated a little out of the town of St Wolfgang but this does not mean it isolated.
Its location in the quiet roads above the town enhances its appeal. There is a stream running next to the hotel and at the Schafberg cog railway not far away.
Hills surround the hotel and it is a reasonable slope from the town to the hotel.
Most rooms have balconies.
We travelled with Crystal on a half-board basis.
Food in the hotel was excellent with a good choice (especially at breakfast) and the service was brisk without being obtrusive. A buffet system was in operation which meant there was always something to choose.
The staff were very friendly and spoke very good English. Helena and Joseph in the dining room were especially approachable and appreciated a joke or two.
Our room (201) was at the side of the hotel and the aforementioned stream ran just below our balcony.
The only drawback to the hotel, and it is a minor niggle, is that there was no lounge as such and, therefore, nowhere to gather in the evening. However, there are seating areas but not in the conventional bar/lounge sense.If the weather is fine this is not a problem as there is a terrace outside the bar.
St Wolfgang itself is a delight and the surroundings could not be better. Walks and cycle tracks are well-signed and there are numerous opportunities for undertaking both.
Public transport is very easy to follow - a trip to Hallstatt involved a bus, a train and a boat but went without a hitch.
My wife and I have vowed to return to St Wolfgang in the future as we found the experience both uplifting and a pleasure.
Please do not hesitate to make contact if I can help with transport details, etc.
