The Schloss is on the edge of the lake, in which you can swim from its decking 'beach'. We walked around the lake in a few hours, stopping half way at the little town of Fuschl Am See on the other side of the lake. The surrounding scenery is second to none - spectacular. The hotel is luxuriously comfortable and spotlessly clean. The staff are polite and courteous and really seem to want to do their very best for their clients. This is an expensive place to stay but worth every penny as you come away feeling as though you have had a totally relaxing experience.
I booked a room for 1 for 2 nights but ended up needing a room for 2 for 4 nights. The staff was so accommodating and made it work for us. In particular, the girl who checked us in was so amazingly helpful. The biggest draw back for us was that the wi-fi for the hotel didn't even come close to reaching our room, and this is a very small hotel. For us to use the wifi we needed to leave the room and go stand in the reception area. That aside, it was a very homey little hotel that made a great location to slip away from the world for a few amazing days. Don't miss the local pizza/bowling place and the restaurant in the adjacent hotel. At first we were a little disappointed we couldn't find a hotel in Hallstatt, but in retrospect, we really rather enjoyed being distanced from the crowds in a quiet little remote beautiful area with 2 great restaurants nearby.
Our hotel is on the sunny side of the Hallstatt lake, amazingly quiet, but a few minutes from the bus stop and the train …More
"Spectacular hotel - you will not be disappointed"
This hotel is 5 star quality. We booked one of the junior suites and it was fantastic. The location is right in the middle of St Wolfgang near to the village amenities. It is right on the lake and the views are amazing. Everything about the hotel was excellent - the room, the food and the service. For the price is was very good value for money. I would highly recommend it. Treat yourself to a suite for the small extra it costs - you will love it. Jacuzzi bath, walk in shower (ours had a window overlooking the lake), ipod, dvd player and loads of dvds to borrow, lovely seating area, trendy decor and a balcony. The hotel allows smoking in the bar and there is also a cigar lounge. What more can I say - first class!!
Good hotel right on the road from St Gilgen to Hallstatt. We enjoyed our stay here and the views from the rooms were absolutely breathtaking. The breakfast was quite good too and there were great locations to travel to within a very short distance. The rooms are dated and the decor is tired but are comfortable nonetheless.
I loved the Furian and St. Wolfgang. The room was quite spacious, and the bathroom had a tub, which meant I could take a long soak after hiking. The desk gave me information about the bus and boat schedule. The breakfast was by far the best of my three-week trip--fantastic selection, high quality offerings and beautiful breakfast room. I arrived on a bus from Salzburg and had no problem walking right to the hotel after getting off the bus at the Schafberg busstop. The location is ideal: a couple blocks to the Schafberg mountain lift and, across the street from that, a boat dock for trips to other towns on the lake. The little town center is likewise a couple blocks away.
