The Ogris am See Hotel has been a wonderful surprise for our first time in Velden. The hotel, that lays on Woerthersee, in the centre of Velden, was originally funded in the '50s and it has been wisely restored in winter 2010. The architect, that now also runs the hotel, formerly a family business, is a charming and always smiling young lady, happy to help you with any kind of suggestions and hints about the area. The environment is welcoming and furnished with glamour design pieces either from the '50 or originally created by the owner-architect. The atmosphere is familiar, though, and we had every 'special wish' granted, with kindness and affability and the help of the entire family...
The rooms are (almost all) quite spaceful, clean and comfortable. Breakfast (gorgious!) is served in a terrace, partially covered by a glass roof, overlooking the Woerthersee from the first floor of the building, thus allowing for a wonderful view but avoiding the noise of the Seecorso at the ground level. At the first floor there is also a small and nice library/living room with books and daily newspapers at the guests' disposal.
But the very unique place in the hotel is the roof garden with a brand new SPA and solarium overlooking the lake: a wonderful way for us to finish our day of sport and tourism in Carinthia!
The hotel is 2 minutes walking from the Casino and its prices are slighlty lower than other 4-stars hotels in Velden, as I could realise from my search in the area.
Hint for golfers: the hotel is in the Golfland Kaernten circuit, so you gather the 20% off for the green fee in about a dozen of golf courses in the area (http://golfland.kaernten.at). And, believe us, most of them are really worth a visit! Schoenes Spiel!!!
