Fantastic Vegan Hotel - Edit

The hotel is located close to the lake Klopein. It is situated in the second row, but it has a private access to the lake. The hotel is completely vegan and also has a vegan restaurant. The included breakfast has a great variety of foods with different muesli with several different plant milks (e.g. almond, coconut-rice, rice, soy), fruits, breads, bread-rolls, etc.

The restaurant offers lots of Asian dishes, but also some fast food, e.g. Wiener Schnitzel or burger. We stayed at the Loving Hut for 10 days and ate at their restaurant for dinner and sometimes also for lunch, but we never had to eat the same dish twice. Everything we had was very delicious. Especially the summer rolls with the peanut sauce.

During our stay the staff was always very friendly, attentive and happy to help. The hotel is very clean and tidy. If you visit Carinthia, Austria we cannot recommend the Loving Hut hotel highly enough.

Pros: food variety , friendly staff, conpletely vegan

Not just the food is vegan - Edit

We stopped here half way to get to Vienna. Our room was tidy and comfortable with a nice balcony. There are paintings everywhere. Not only breakfast is all vegan, but furniture have absolutely no leather, blankets have no feather nor wool. When you reserve consider that rooms without view on the lake have lower fare. Private jetty to go on the lake, which they say it is one of the warmest in Austria, so we could take a swim in those beautiful mountain waters. We also had dinner here, where I tried my first non-alcoholic beer: which is good!

Beautiful vegan hotel - Edit

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: Activities outside of the hotel are, limited unless you have a car

Cozy, simple but warm hotel on the lake-side - Edit

Completely vegan, smoke-free, alcohol-free, child- and dogs-oriented, this very tranquil hotel is situated on Lake Klopein, which reaches a temperature of 28°C in summer (it's Austria's warmest lake).
You can use their private garden with a landing stage on the lake, where you can lay in the sun and/or use Loving Hut's sunbeds and sun umbrellas for free.
The restaurant provides guests with a healthy, vegan buffet breakfast. It also provides lunch and dinner. All dishes in the restaurant are 100% vegan, GMO free.
They use mostly local, organic and fair-trade products (also cleaning products, as I could see).
It is a clean, cozy but modern place - W-Lan in the whole hotel, flat-screen TV and balcony in the rooms-.


We slept really good as the hotel and the sorroundings are very quiet, food was delicious (we took all meals here, during our holiday-weekend).
We've loved our stay here and will surely come back!

Pros: clean, sunny, quiet, perfect location, good food, good price/quality, Nice personnel, nice guests

Cons: Only few vegan raw foods
