Strandhotel Margaretha
Ranked #1 of 44 St. Wolfgang B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We arrived at night ( staying for 11 nights as part of a Crystal Holidays package) and this was our comment when we opened the bedroom curtains next morning. (We had a lake view room with balcony,)
We had a very warm friendly welcome on arrival, the room was spacious and comfortable, the staff all polite, helpful and spoke good English, and the hotel is only a few minutes walk from the centre of the town. It is also one of the quietest hotels we have ever stayed in - there was a fairly loud music event only about 150 yards/100 metres away and we heard nothing inside the hotel.
There is a private lakeside area for relaxing/bathing just across the road (though the locals were obviously hardier than we were - even with bright sunny weather and temperatures approaching 30 degrees C we found the water too cold for comfort!) and a rowing boat is available for hire.
There was plenty of food, though some of the food combinations were unusual - but this is a matter of personal taste and other people have obviously been very happy with it. Others from our party who stayed at other hotels and ate at ours felt this was the best one.
If you only stay in one place in Austria, this should be the one, and this should be the hotel!
I would certainly also recommend Crystal/Thomson Holidays - first class service in all respects!

Room Tip: We had a first floor lake view room with a balcony, and it was excellent.

We spent 5 days at this hotel in august 2012. Very nice and comfortable hotel in a few min from center St Wolfgang. Private beach across the road, bathrobes to walk to the beach in the rooms. Free internet, friendly staff, free renting of bicycles, excellent breakfast. Very comfortable beds! Great view from the balcony on the lake!
I would recommend this hotel to everyone for visiting St. Wolfgang.

The Margaretha could not be faulted, the service was excellent, the rooms spotless and the food delicious and plentiful. This is a beautiful part of the world and there's lots to see and do. We had mixed weather but with careful planning and the use of the hotel internet to check the weather we were able to make the best of the sunny days. It's not too expensive to hire a car which we did to take us further afield on the cloudy/ wet days. The hotel has a small spa and sauna and free bike hire. A cycle round the lake to St Gilgen taking in the tobogan run on the way was good fun. The scenery is fantastic, even better from the top of the cable car from St Gilgen on a clear day and lots of amazing walks.
This is not a resort for anyone looking for exciting nightlife, it is very quiet.
We would recommend this hotel 100% for anyone wishing to stay in St Wolfgang.

We have stayed at Strandhotel Margaretha for few nights during our summer vacation in July 2012. Rooms are spacious, newly furnished, clean. We were lucky to stay in a room with a beautiful lake wiev.Concerning the food, both buffet breakfast/half pension or a la carte menu is delicious. The staff is very friendly. Despite the bad weather conditions we had, which was a pitty because the lake side and the lake itself looked just great and comfortable, we had a very nice time taking advantange of the very many sightsseing opportunities nearby.
I´d definitely recommend a stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: We had a great lake view room, but the ones with mountain view seemed to be nice as well.

Had a great week at this resort.
We were slightly disappointed in our hotel room as it was not in the original part of the hotel and lacked the character we were hoping for.
However it was clean and large so that was okay.
The food was good and plentiful and all in all a great location for getting out and about in a beautiful setting.
Plenty to do in the area with some stunning walks and interesting day trips.

Room Tip: Ask for the original part of the hotel

Spent a wonderful week at this hotel in June and I only had one complaint....too much food!!

The hotel is situated right on the edge of St Wolfgang and just a quiet road is all that is between the lakeside. The hotel has its own sun bathing area which is great as it is secluded from the road and passersby. It has a rowing boat you can take onto the lake and free bikes to ride around the lake which is great. It's perfect for people who would like to do a bit of hiking/walking and the scenery is just awesome. St Wolfgang is a picture post card type of town and has restaurants and bars but its lovely and peaceful. We will return.

Room Tip: get a lakeside view as the scenery is stunning.
