Not so nice. It's a tourist trap. Overpriced and overbooked. Avoid it if possible. Be careful to ask restraunt if they take credit cards. Be prepared to pay cash.

Zell am See is a lovely but very busy town and is frequented by a LOT of Saudi Arabian family's who's woman wear the full burka. There are music festivals in the square and laser displays by the lake.

Yes, there's a bus system you can use. Hopefully, your hotel can give you the correct bus information. As for an outdoor swimming pool, I'd say most hotels would not have one. I swam in the lake!
