This hotel has a beautiful situation by a small, fast running river and with a lovely garden adjacent. It is less than 5 minutes walk from the station and the main bus stop so is good for getting quickly to see nearby sites such as Hallstatt.
The restaurant at the hotel is superb. Dinner there was one of the best meals I've eaten in ages. It was accompanied by excellent wine. The breakfast included in the room price was of a high quality.
We found the staff friendly and very pleasant. They were more forthcoming when speaking German and tended to respond briefly (even tersely) when needing to communicate in English. This might come across as abruptness.
The hotel operates in some respects in a rather informal manner. As some other reviewers have noted, its reception desk is not staffed all the time (though there seems always to be someone nearby) and its closing time varies so guests are told not to forget their outside door key. The first night we were there it had shut down by 10pm.
This relaxed approach also extends to some aspects of maintenance (for example the blinds had been removed in the two single rooms we booked and not replaced and a question about this on the first morning did not lead to their replacement and the heavy soap dispenser in my friend's bathroom fell off the wall and turned out simply to have been glued on).
The hotel offers an excellent and good value same day laundry service (washing and pressing).
Despite the one or two of rough edges mentioned we found this a very enjoyable place to stay and would certainly return and recommend the hotel to others.
