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!
