A weekend at the end of March is not always appealing in Salzkammergut. Especially as the weather broke after days of unseasonal warmth, to rain, high winds, and even some snow. Most hotels close at this time as do many restaurants and Cafés. But we were directed to Café Werkstatte which is an amazing place - and super for a light lunch. Dorfalm was also open for dinner and as good as ever. The pension is entirely adequate. There is a nice breakfast room with a terrace and lake views. Even though we were the only ones staying the breakfast buffet was generous and wholesome. At first we found the room cold but the heating came on at night and we were soon very comfortable. Unfortunately the DVD player did not work. I also could not access the Wifi with the password provided in the room pack. But by the time we got around to realising the DVD did not work, we had other plans - a spring concert at the school opposite. I think we were the only ones there not wearing Trachten and it was essentially an event for the locals not for tourists, perhaps as a consequence we thoroughly enjoyed it even if the dialect was hard to follow. The pension is perfect for the village - only a few minutes walk to the lake and the boats. Parking is onsite though it is not a huge area and I do not know how adequate it is when the pension is full. For us there was plenty of space. And it is free - important here. Bathroom was shower only and a little bit small, but again perfectly adequate. The powerful fan could be a problem as it works on the light and therefore is automatic. An issue for a light sleeper. More than enough towels, soaps and shampoos. It is not luxury but it is a very comfortable pension offering good service and a great breakfast. A lot of the bigger hotels cater for package tourists and can be somewhat cavalier. Be assured of a friendly welcome at this Pension and leave the Lakes and Mountains brigade to their Travel Agents' mass market.
