First off, I enjoyed my stay at Schloss Grubhof. I read the negative reviews and chose to ignore them and make my own mind up. Some of my comments will be negative as there are several areas that I believe need to be addressed but overall, I have a good impression of SG. I would happily stay there again. The... More

As a family of five, we stayed here over New Year as a Timeshare exchange. Wonderful, comfortable and warm property. Yes it does lack amenities but then it does not advertise itself as being luxury. It would benefit from an oven/microwave and a kettle. Again yes you have to pay for WiFi and it only works until 7pm but you... More

A most incredible and unique property. Wow, from the first view of the secluded castle to the antiques and crystal chandeliers in the room and ability to roam a castle at will. Were originally worried because we'd arrived by bus from Salzburg and didn't have a car but it wasn't necessary. We're not seasoned hikers but thoroughly enjoyed walking many... More

This is a unique property in a beautiful corner of Austria and overall we really enjoyed our time here. However, it was disappointing that wi-fi was extremely limited and there are no laundry facilities. The other issue is that the units vary widely in space and decor. Some of the units are huge with painted murals on the ceiling and... More

Beautiful Hotel in beautiful location but we would never return. The lady that runs the place is beyond unacceptable. Nobody felt welcome, she is rude and hostile. She runs it like a Youth Hostel - wifi off at 19.00. Pitty she made it a terrible experience!

I read all the reviews before deciding to stay at this resort. I disagree with the comments that the receptionist is rude. She is just doing her job efficiently. She was very kind about helping us on several occasions and was always willing to answer or questions. The problem with the resort is that it does not have any amenities... More

My stay at Schloss Grubhof was in mid Oct. 2013. The Schloss is a real castle amidst the Alps mountains. Though it's located in a very quiet area, it is not far from towns like Lofer & St. Martin. One of its advantages is the bus stop which is just at the entrance of the castle. Amazing sceneries around. The... More

We recently stayed here with our 3 year old as the second stop on a whirlwind vacation throughout Europe. The location was AMAZING!!! At first we were a little put off but the distance to Salzburg and location - but we quickly found Lofer to be one of our favorite stops on our trip. We had a car (a must... More

We used this as a timeshare swop and as some of the the reviews were quite negative, we were in two minds as to whether we should go there. I'm glad we did. This is a genuine castle and is stunning from the outside; inside it is furnished with old style furniture in keeping with the fact that it is... More
