Reviewed 15 September 2012

We stayed in the Joainig Gasthof over the summer and had a lovely week. Portschach is beautiful - with a traffic free peninsula over the lake that you can explore by bicycle and swim in the lake. We stayed in one of the family rooms which was extremely spacious with a lobby area, main bedroom and adjoining room for the children. The hotel has a large outside restaurant which is also open to the public and the main attraction is Happy Land which is next to the restaurant and is a haven for kids - giant swings, go karts, basketball net and other play equipment. Between courses the kids would go and play in Happy Land which made for a very relaxing meal for the grown ups! My only criticism would be that sometimes the hotel guests could feel second class to those visiting the restaurant and I suspect the food on the restaurant menu was better than that for hotel guests.

The hotel also has bikes that you can borrow and if there isn't one small enough for your youngest child, you can hire them in Portschach. There are lots of places nearby to cycle to on cycle paths so traffic isnt a problem. The hotel also has a beautiful garden which leads down to a jetty by the lake where you can swim.

Altogether we had a lovely week. There weren't any other English families. it was mostly Austian and German but the owners spoke very good English, were very helpful and happy to pick us up from Klagenfurt airport, about 20 minutes away by car
