Seehotel Hoffmann has a very good selection of different rooms catering to any type of family - whether you have 1, 2, 3 or 4 kids, and of whatever age, the Hoffmanns have a suitable solution including rooms with partitions, adjoining rooms, or apartments with complete separate bedrooms. The room standard is very high for a European family-run hotel - which almost by definition does not include air conditioning. You might therefore have a couple of bugs flying around at night, and it does get noisy if you have a street-facing room. Get a room with a lake view instead.
The location is wonderful. It is a great point of departure for hikes, running, mountaineering, biking, water sports and much more. During the high season, various activities ranging from porcelain painting to hiking are offered on a daily basis, as well as a small "kid's club". The Hoffmann estate boasts a lawn with lake access that also features a beautiful hi-end sauna (but note the German/Austrian habit of going to the sauna together with the opposite sex - naked). There is a 3-or-so meter jumping board to jump into the lake from the jetty, a kayak, pedal boat, sand pit, playground, table tennis table, tennis courts... and no extra charge for borrowing any of the equipment.
Service is friendly, professional and personal (staff and owners remember your name from the first minute). Many hotel guests are regulars, and almost everyone is staying for a full week (or two or three) adding to the friendly atmosphere. Breakfast buffet has everything you can ask for from the central European breakfast cuisine. We very much enjoyed the 5 course set meal in the evenings - the chef was even flexible to cater to special food requests (and to give us an extra serving of our favourite dishes). Great local wines on the menu.
The combination between reading on a sun lounger at the lake, doing some sports in beautiful nature and having the kids burn lots of energy was the perfect recipe for a fantastic and relaxing holiday! We've already booked the place for next year. Very important, though: stay far away if you don't have kids.
