“Shame about the food”
Reviewed 23 September 2007

We just spent a week at the Ferienhotel Wörthersee which is situated in Töschling just outside Pörtschach on the Wörthersee. The hotel is quite modern and the view from the rooms overlooking the Wörthersee is absolutely stunning. The hotel boasts a wellness centre with indoor pool, two saunas and an infrared cabin and offers various massages and treatments. There is also a bridge down to the lake itself where there is a small lido and a bar which was already closed for the season. The drawback with this hotel is that it is separated from the lake by a rather busy railway line but this applies to quite a number of hotels along this side on the lake as the railway runs all along the lake from Klagenfurt to Velden.
The staff at the hotel are extremely friendly and obliging but, unfortunately there is nothing much to do in the evening and despite the fact that the hotel was quite full, all the guest must go to bed very early as the bar was virtually empty every night of the week. To go out you either have to get a taxi or drive yourself but even if you make it into Pörtschach there is not much going on either and all the bars around the lake shut down about 8pm. Admittingly it was the middle of September and it may well be different in the height of the season.
The biggest disappointment with the Ferienhotel Wörthersee was the food on offer as the Halfboard option which was advertised as 4 course dinner with Salad Buffet was rather poor. The choice of food which had to be made the evening before was a simple meat or vegetarian dish, a soup, a starter and a desert with no choice offered apart from the main dish. Everyone seemed to eat rather early and by 8.30pm the restaurant was deserted.
So all in all it was a very quiet holiday with early nights in bed as even the Satellite TV only catered for German speaking guests with not an English channel to be found.
Having said all that, Austria is a lovely country with plenty to see and do during the daytime and should you decide to go to the Corinthia Region then just make sure you get the KÄRNTEN CARD, a kind of credit card which gives you free admission to over 100 attractions such as Cable Cars, Boats on the Lake, Museums, Zoos etc etc.

  • Liked — The fantastic lake view from from the room, but beware the rooms opposite overlook the car park
  • Disliked — The food on offer - very litte choice - rather uninspiring - nothing to do in the evening

It`s right, in the end of September it is more quiet than in high-season.
Our Restaurant is no a la carte Restaurant and offers traditional Austrian-food. In the meantime we have become better and you can get 4 course dinner with Salad Buffet, and choice between 3 main-dishes. It`s also possible to book the room just with breakfast and to go out for dinner. (If you think its really necessary or you prefer Italian- or asia food )

In the meantime we can offer also an english TV-channel and w-lan in charge of free.

Thank you for your opinion.
