fantastic atmosphere, food, service, prices, etc

Stayed at the Fewo Scheiber 5-10 minutes away (really hope to stay at the Loving Hut Pension next time!) and ate here several times. Great prices, service, and food. I would say that this is more for non-vegans and vegans who like junk food than the health conscious among us, but I didn't mind since it was only a few meals. I love the atmosphere and decor - I got a Go Vegan Make Peace bracelet! Highly recommended

Pros: Good prices, Yummy food, Accommodating staff
Cons: "Junk food" vegan, Busy

Beautiful vegan hotel and restaurant

Posted on 08 / 21 / 2014

We stayed at the hotel for four nights in August, 2014. My partner and I are both vegan and we chose Austria as a holiday destination because we wanted the chance to stay at the hotel (we adore the Loving Hut chain of restaurants!). We then planned to fly to Berlin which is also great for veggies. Our stay at the Loving Hut hotel did not disappoint and we were both very happy with our time there.

The hotel has a lovely peaceful atmosphere to it and the surrounding scenery and lake is beautiful too. You can take walks all around the lake or just go for a swim. Staff members were kind and courteous throughout the time that we were there. The other guests were also pleasant and smiles were always exchanged at breakfast or dinner. The room we stayed in was big and clean. It was complete with a great shower, wardrobe, TV, balcony area and wi-fi access. Private access to the lake and breakfast buffet was also included in the price.

We ate at the restaurant many times during our stay and the food was always freshly prepared and very tasty. There is a good mix of American, Chinese and Italian style dishes and the prices are very reasonable (for example, the King Burger with fries was very filling at 6.50 Euros). There is a nice selection of drinks and desserts too which include banana split, cheesecake, ice-cream and raw cake. My favourite dish was the taglietelle with creamy cheese sauce, vegan ham and cashews. Many people ate at the restaurant during our stay and that included people not actually staying at the hotel, which is a credit to the great-tasting food. Seating is indoor or outdoor on the patio which is ideal on a warm sunny day.

The hotel is child and animal friendly as some guests had both children and dogs. We made friends with a lovely lady from Switzerland who was staying with her daughter and dog, Benny. However, most guests seemed to be couples. Upon entering the hotel you are met with a garden full of animal figurines and there is even a sandpit and wooden climbing frame. A really nice touch is that water bowls are left out for dogs and the table in the lobby is always topped up with juice and snacks for the guests.

I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel (and restaurant) to anyone - veggie or non-veggie. A peaceful get away from city life, we are looking forward to returning.

Pros: Staff are very warm, restaurant food is amazing, very relaxing surroundings
Cons: None - amazing choice of food!

Tolle vegane internationale Küche

Posted on 08 / 04 / 2014

Short summary in english:
Great international cuisine in a beautiful surrounding at lake klopein. Its a well know tourist area so expect some people in high season.


Es gibt noch 2 andere Loving Hut in Österreich (Wien), aber dieses hier ist etwas Besonderes. Liegt es an den durchwegs offenen und freundlichen Menschen in diesem Betrieb, an der tollen Lage, dem wunderschönen See?!? Ich weiss es nicht, aber das Essen war bei allen drei Besuchen erstklassig und die Atmosphäre stimmig. Beeindruckend ist die internationale Vielfalt auf der Speisekarte. Viele Köche verderben hier anscheinend nicht den Brei.

Im Sommer steppt hier natürlich der Bär, so wie überall in Kärnten. Da kann es dann schon voller werden.

Mehr Infos und Bilder kann ich auf meiner Website anbieten (link im Profil) wenn es jemanden interessiert.

Schöne Grüsse

Pros: 100% vegan, internationale Küche, schöne lage
Cons: in der hochsaison ist der see überrannt

The best choice for nice holiday...

Posted on 05 / 18 / 2013

Four days... that was too short, but we enjoy this place. With our 2 small dogs, we were in a nice hotel, with friendly staff, they want always to make more for us.
The vegan food was perfect, every day from breakfast to dinner, a big choice from different meals and for everybody a very nice moment : make peace with food... GREAT !!!
We want to go again in a few months, but for 8 days, or more, that was not enough...
We recommended !

Pros: Vegan friends, Excellent vegan food, very quiet place

An excellent holiday.

Posted on 07 / 07 / 2012

We stayed here for a week. It was such a treat to stay in a hotel, come down to breakfast and eat everything from the cereal to the cold 'meats', and then to have an extenisve menu to choose from for lunch and dinner.

The food was all good, I especially enjoyed the wraps, and the staff went out of their way to accomodate my coeliac partner.

The location is lovely, and the hotel has access to the lake as well. It made a really nice change to go somewhere where food was simply not an issue.

The weather was very warm in June and we ate in the garden for every meal. The lake is one of the warmest in Europe, and we swam several times most days.

Pros: Extensive menu., Excellent location., Friendly helpful staff.
