My cousin and I stayed for one night at the hotel in September 2013. They helpfully arranged for us to have separate twin beds, and we upgraded to the lake view - what a great choice! Our room was 302, on the third floor, and the view of the lake from our balcony was spectacular! We walked in after a few days traveling and it was as if we'd walked into the lap of luxury.
The hostess (whom I can only assume was Monica but have not confirmed) was so incredibly welcoming to us - allowing us to deposit our bags into our room early, giving us instructions on how to make sure our laundry was done (it came back the same day, mere hours later!) and arranging a cab from a neighboring town to take us to the Dachstein glacier cable car. In short, the service was spectacular from start to finish, and the view was a true gift. Of course, no description of this place would be complete without also mentioning that the beds, the finishes and the rooms in general (not to mention the bathrooms) were amazing (clearly the rehab is finished). We had drinks one night on the dock, and the only challenge is that because it's on the water, it can be buggy at night - so there was some challenge with managing the ventilation in the room.
All that said, having traveled to more than 20 countries in the last 24 months (for work and pleasure), I can honestly say it's one of the best hotels I've stayed in anywhere in the world. I'll be back, it's just a question of when.
