The hotel is next to one of the many impressive castles in Germany but isn't in the castle grounds so I would say many of the photos on the booking.com website are misleading. The front desk was staffed by a rather clueless trainee and the manager was not helpful when we said we wanted to cancel. Our room was pleasant... More

We arrived by boat from Dresden which cost 20 Euro return. The boat trip was a great journey travelling along the Elbe River, seeing the small villages and people going along with their daily life. Every so often a small castle would appear or another lovely old boat. Our paddle steamer was from the 1890's and beautifully restored. You can... More

Wonderful place near the river Elbe. Big gardens and a castle bring to the surface the atmosphere of the middle age, when the King of Saxony used to spend his vacations here with his lover... The rooms are perfect and there is a conference room with everything you need for a successful workshop. The service is friendly and the food... More

Lovely welcome from receptionist and all public areas and restaurant looked like they've been decorated very recently. 2 interesting water marks highlighted as part of the decor on a column inside the building showing the water level in the building during the bad flooding of 2013 and 2002 - incredible to realise just how bad it must have been for...

Quiet location, and beautiful rooms. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room, which I understand is normal in Germany - but we'd had these at another, less expensive hotel on our trip. Picturesque surroundings - and the best thing about this place is that it's convenient for Dresden - and what a wonderful city that turned out to be! Just... More

Enjoyed our stay at Pillnitz. Easy access from Dresden by and friendly staff. Wifi worked well in the room which had a view of the castle gardens. Breakfast was good and service was pleasant. Nice walks along the river and through the castle gardens. Wish we had stayed longer to be able to do the ferry cruise.

Living right next to the castle was very nice. The river flows right behind the hotel with the castle ground a stone throw away. Makes it the place for a perfect romantic getaway. The staff were very helpful and courteous. Restaurant food was also good but the spread was a bit limited, especially if u plan to eat there more... More

My hubby and I and our German friends recently spent Christmas at Schloss Hotel. Arrived 23 after a long drive from Hamburg. All our tiredness was quickly gone with the friendly service. Next day booked on 'bus tour' to nearby mountains for sled ride in snow. Was very dubious about this, but it turned out to be a fantastic day.... More

Had a lovely couple of days at this Schloss wanted to do something different than the generic hotel. Firstly our navi gave us the most direct route and that happened to be a barge across the river (literally 2mins across) but saves 1/2hr drive. Our room was spacious and fitted out nicely with a lovely view over the courtyard, we... More

Had a fantastic weekend at this very beautiful Schloss. The staff are friendly, the hotel is immaculate and the rooms perfect. I loved every minute of our visit and are already planning a return visit. We had a room on the first floor which was small but perfectly planned. The gardens are lovely to walk around and you can get... More
