Spent a nice few days at this hotel. For this review I have decided to correct various incorrect statements in other peoples reviews:
Breakfast: excellent with a choice of normal and large sized cereal bowls.
VAT Refund: only applies to the 7% on accommodation. Food and spa services are excluded by the rules of the scheme.
Towels: large towels provided in room for swimming / sauna with additional hand towels available in the spa.
I enjoyed the walk to / from town and whilst I would only want to do it once a day it was not too far or too hard a climb back.
Found evening food in the Seehaus restaurant better than in the hotel.
Swimming pool: just the right temperature for swimming and a constant depth.
Old squash court has been converted into a fitness room, but never saw anyone using it.
The water in the hotel is “Grander-Wasser” – not recycled water!
Sauna was open to 10pm and is separated from the swimming pool area.
Deluxe room was not worth paying extra for.
Paying: credit card machine gives option of paying in currency that card was issued in, or euros – the choice is yours.
Only negative (may be) was the waterfall just outside room – I kept waking thinking it was pouring with rain!
