We'd been to Sankt Johann many years ago and stayed at the excellent Hotel Crystal, we couldn't book the rooms we wanted there (party of 7) so booked at the Fischer instead and boy are we glad we did. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with a warm welcome by Michael the owner. Our rooms were on the first floor and were both spacious, well appointed and spotlessly clean.
The evening meals are typical Austrian, with a choice of salad or soup to start, a choice of three main courses and pudding to finish. Children could eat from the adult menu or the extensive children's menu (nuggets, fish fingers, pizza, pasta etc - even steak and schnitzel). Our meals came with free drinks (part of the package deal we booked) and were free flowing throughout the meal (up until dessert was served), with plenty of choices. The food was most definitely home cooked with a wide variety of very enjoyable dishes. There wasn't anything that any of us didn't like ! On top of the usual meals, we were treated to a mountain breakfast one morning (a 30 minute walk up the mountain for a full breakfast with spectacular views. My retired parents (and others) opted for the free taxi ride instead of the walk which was a nice touch. We also had a farmers buffet one evening and a BBQ at the sister hotel Park - both of which were excellent.
Another plus for the hotel is the excellent central location - literally 1-2 minutes walk from the town square, where we were treated to live entertainment on a couple of evenings (the Abba tribute band packed the square out with a really friendly atmosphere). It's 10 minutes from the Panorama Badwelt (indoor and outdoor pool complex) which is free to enter with the guest card you get from the hotel (for free) - our children spent quite some time here ! The hotel is about 15 minutes from the main cable car station which is also well worth a visit. Half way up the mountain is Horn Park a high wire adventure park (similar to Go Ape) with the addition of flying fox zip wires across the lake. Our children (8, 10 and 12) had a blast, as did their parents !
Nothing is very far away in this charming resort, and if you want to travel further afield, you can hire bikes from the hotel or for the less energetic e-bikes from the sister hotel Park. For those with families, we can recommend the ride to Going and the man-made lake outdoor swimming complex - another great day out.
To sum up, a charming hotel serving excellent food, with friendly staff, clean well appointed rooms in an excellent central location.
