Reviewed 24 September 2013

Like the review by damac5, the week spent at the Strand was not enjoyable. Admittedly the constant rain didn't help but Thomas was unfriendly, unhelpful and critical. The food must have been straight out of the freezer, the lack of choice (soup every night), lack of lounge, anyone to serve tea or coffee on returning from days out and lack of interest by both owners, made this an unenjoyable week. If you didn't get down to the dining room just before it was unlocked at 1855 you couldn't buy a drink until after dinner as Thomas and his partner employ no staff (can they get any?) to serve you. We only found out there is a lounge halfway through the week but access to it is locked until 1900 - dinner time.

One girl's hairdryer started to melt but Thomas insisted there was nothing wrong with it!! Eventually it was replaced without a word. He constantly complained in an aggressive manner to our rep.

The garden was so overgrown and neglected and vines were invading my balcony and partially obscuring the view.

We can only assume Thomas & partner dislike the English as he was actually seen to smile and be nice to the visiting Austrian dance troup.

Why do Travelsphere/Just You keep using this guest house (no way is it a hotel)? Answer..because it's cheap to them but cost us a fortune.

Just back from a week here and I would rate the experience as one of the poorest in a number of years travelling abroad in a variety of ways. The hotel was clean- the food was generally poor ( straight out of the freezer we thought) the atmosphere was non existent and although the lake views were there the access through the overgrown front garden and steps was awful. Thomas was civil to most of our group but he did clash with one or two - room cleaning was done at 4.45pm one day (strange) Overall very disappointing

We have just had a fantastic week in Austria, staying at The Strand Hotel Weyregg. This is not our first time here and it was just as good as last time. Thomas has to be the hardest working person I know, and nothing is too much trouble for him. he has a typical Austrian temperment which isn't to everyones liking but he also has a great sense of humour. We had lovely food, clean rooms and the best location in Austria.
Our tour guide was the best ever as was our driver, a great team.
Our fellow travellers were also great, some a lot better than others!!!
It is such a shame that Travelsphere are no longer doing this trip by coach as if like me you don't like flying you are denied seeing this fabulous place.
I have read some of the previous reviews and can only think that the moaners will never be satisfied wherever they stay. No Thomas does not get into conversations with guest and I know this upsets quite a few but he is a very busy man trying to run a very good buisness.

Room Tip: Always try and get a Lake View room.

Stayed a week at the Strand hotel on a Just You holiday and must say enjoyed it.
My room was large and spotless so no complains there. The food for evening meal consisted of two choices and there was always something I liked, also some nice soups as a starter followed by a tasty sweet.
Have read complaints on here about Thomas the owner but from what I saw he was very helpful and polite.
As for the hotel not having a lift, this was advertised before i booked so was aware and Thomas (and Herbert our coach driver) helped those with luggage they couldn't manage.
Its a small family run hotel which I found a delightful change from the usual chain hotels, its in a lovely small village with its own private lawn on the lake shore.

the hotel location is very nice if only there is no busy road in front of it, specially when you want to admire the view by the lake, have to be very careful when crossing the road. the proprietor thomas, in my personal opinion, he can be very nice but most time he had no time for a chat to his customer. if you are this traveler who like to try every corner of the restaurant everytime you have your meal, forget it, it won't happen! ..menu were ticked in the morning at breakfast so if you change seat at dinner you may not get what you ordered! Food, we found out, well, although it was satisfactory, its just like what you get at home mostly lidl. some people may find it home from home...but i prefer to eat what the locals have on their table.

Room Tip: all rooms had veranda and nice view either garden or the lake, but top floor would be fantastic for...

the hotel and thomas were wonderful, the hotel was spotless and plenty of tea and coffee in the bedroom, which was big and a lovely view overlooking the lake,and the food was excellent, and thomas was lovely nothing was too much trouble, highly recommend as did everyone on the trip

Room Tip: all the rooms have balconies but to pay the extra is worth it for a lake view

hotel was in a lovely setting ,Our room was on the top floor which was very big with plenty of tea and coffee to enjoy it was very clean we also had a big bathroom , The only down side to the room was that there were nothing to put your clothes on in the bathroom.The food was lovely and freshly cooked Thomas and Anna did every thing they could to make our trip great .They have a garden on the outher side of the road which goes right down to the lake which i had a great time swimming in it while the rest of our group sat on the swinging beds .Had a fab time will go back soon
