Have stayed at four hotels during my current trip and this was by far the best. It's all about service really. Other hotels might have an even better view (though the view of the Schafberg from our balcony was rather impressive) but the service is what counts.
On arrival we were given a warm and heartfelt welcome from the proprietor. She always seemed to be cheerful, and this made the whole place feel happy. Everything was clean and in.working order. The balcony was lovely. The breakfasts good. The advice we had on how to spend our days spot on too.
St Gilgen is a lovely village. We were very pleased we decided to stay here rather than in St Wolfgang, which is nice for a day visit but just that bit more crowded and touristy.
We did three day trips- a walk to St Wolfgang via Falkenstein, which was really lovely; the trip up to Schafberg on the steam train; and best of all, the cable car to Zwolferhorn and a walk all the way down from the top.
