From the moment we arrive at the reception, when the receptionist shook our hands, I had a feeling I was about to experience something exceptional, and I was right!
Although the exterior of the hotel was unassuming, the interior was stylishly decorated, and the facilities luxurious.
The room was generously proportioned, and the bed most comfortable. The complimentary packet of pumpkin seed was a nice touch.
The juice-making facilities at breakfast, the delicious cakes, the cook-to-order omelette and crispy bacon slices were very satisfying, it was a pity those jam biscuits ran out both mornings just as we arrived. The dinner choices did not disappoint either, each course was prepared to a very high standard, complemented by salads and a good selection of cheeses and bread.
The luxuriant garden view from the two outdoor saunas was such a visual feast. We were fortunate to have experienced the unique Aufgussmeister in action too, I was so thoroughly entertained. He renewed my interest in Enya's music.
The hot pools and the training pool for lane swimming were well-maintained and the chemical-free pool added a unique touch.
The free e-bicycle around the area was a most pleasant experience, riding through the forest permeated with the refreshing aroma of pinewood. It also made a light job of ascending.
Overall, I cannot recommend staying at Der Steirerhof any more emphatically, this is an outstanding resort hotel. It has got almost everything right - it would have been perfect if I have tasted those biscuits at breakfast!
