We've recently returned from a week here and had only one day of rain which is great for the mountains and excellent for walking. The hotel is located almost opposite the golf academy and it's an easy, short stroll into town.
The reception staff were excellent all week, happy to help whenever asked.
We paid extra through Crystal for a recent room in what I think they class as the Residence wing which appears to be a relatively new addition at the back and to the side of the main building.
The room was a slightly odd shape with what seemed to be the eaves intruding between the windows on the left and the balcony doors on the right. They had squeezed a 2 seater couch and table into this space which felt a rad claustrophobic.
There was a desk and chair in the far left and a wardrobe and a couple of
cupboards so sufficient storage room. The usual Austrian twin bed, a separate loo and a large bathroom with bath, walk-in shower and double vanity. Outside was the smallest balcony I've ever seen that held a little table, two chairs and nothing else as there was no more room.
The windows all faced South so had full sun in them all afternoon. Even leaving the windows/balcony door open and the curtains closed couldnt stop the temperature reaching boiling point and it really was far too hot to sleep on several nights!!
Frankly some of the older rooms appeared to have as much if not more space, much larger balconies and be much cooler so I'd think twice about paying the extra. Perhaps liaising directly with the hotel might be advisable first?
The breakfast buffet was large although the omelettes were poor and the area where the juices were was constantly sticky as half the clientele seemed unable to pour a glass without pouring some on the floor!!
Dinner was usually 5 or 6 courses. Good was not quite as good as the Alpenpark where we've stayed before. Our waiter was attentive but not a great communicator.
The pool was nice with an area with water jets to ease aching muscles. There's a very small outdoor pool upstairs and a further outdoor bio-pool at the side of the hotel. This was a great place to sunbathe but as access was from the front of the hotel, it meant going through reception and the bar in a state of undress, not ideal!
Buffet lunch was very disappointing. One hot dish which was ok some days, soup and salad which normally consisted of the leftovers from the previous nights dinner. The cakes were very good though.
Overall we enjoyed it but I would think twice about that room again, especially in the summer.
