A stop off on our Wachau Trail holiday. Superb gourmet menu accompanied by different local wines which we enjoyed enormously with very attentive staff. The hotel is a little outside the lovely village of Durnstein, but the journey was well worthwhile - absolutely enormous rooms with balcony overlooking the Danube. Excellent selection of foreign TV channels which enabled us to... More

We stayed for one night while driving along the Danube. This is a beautiful and modern hotel in an ancient setting. We met the owner Mr. Pfeffel who served us in the bar for a nightcap and introduced us to an Austrian red wine named Blaufrankisch. The room was large with all the modern conveniences but the air conditioning (on... More

We loved this property from start to finish. The family was incredibly welcoming and the property was beautifully situated on the Danube with grape vined terraces producing their own wine. Gorgeous art hung on the interior walls of the hallways, and the food was luscious. Breakfast and dinner were as good as anywhere we have ever been, and all the... More

This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in . Everything about it was excellent. The rooms were enormous and superbly well equipped with a balcony overlooking the Danube. Yes, there is a main road between the hotel and the river, but this did not intrude on our stay at all.The welcome and service were first rate,... More

The location was not the best, because it was away from the center of town. However, the hotel made up for it. The Wellness Spa Floor was AMAZING! The sauna's and steam rooms were the best. The view from our room was spectacular, on the Danube. But it would have been nice to have some comfy lounge chairs to relax... More

The reception desk was very welcoming and helpful. The room was spacious and well furnished and the dining was very good. The top floor, where clothes are not required, has saunas and an outdoor swimming pool. We can recommend this hotel but it is somewhat expensive.
