Travelled from Newcastle with Inghams. The transfer arrangements were very swift and efficient. Arrived at hotel shortly before sunset and you were made to feel a valued guest from the moment you checked in. Our room was a junior suite with stunning views of the lake and mountain peaks. The room was large and well furnished;the flat screen tv had a handful of English speaking stations and there was an easy to operate free safe in the wardrobe. The bathroom had a powerful shower over the bath and a plentiful supply of hot water. If we had a criticism is was the shortage of toiletries(apart from soap dispenser and tissues).You had dressing gowns and pool towels provided.
You were allocated a table in the dining room(which was split into two) Buffet breakfast was attractively presented with plentiful choice of cold meats/cheeses/fruit/cereal/juices/breads and scrambled eggs and bacon. During breakfast you were asked to select your choice of main course for your evening meal(choice from meat or fish or vegetarian). Dinner was always something to look forward to as the quality and variety of the food (usually minimum of 4 courses) was excellent. Half litre of local red wine about 12 euro. The staff were friendly, welcoming, and highly efficient.offering a most relaxing dining experience.
Evening entertainment was virtually non existent as a result the bar lounge was a most pleasant place to sit in the evening. The village was only a few minutes walk away should you want some nightlife. There was also a large terrace/patio area facing the lake where you could sit and smoke.
The indoor pool/sauna and spa were added attractions. There was small lido on the lakeside which was a 20 minute stroll away. Don't forget your room key which was needed to gain access to the lido facility.
The Bad Ischl-Salzburg bus stopped outside the hotel and opposite was a Spar supermarket and the St Wolfgangsee tourist office
The Hollweger family with their hands on approach and delightful staff helped to make the stay most memorable.
