This hotel is on the banks of the river danube so the view from the sit out is amazing ...especially at the sunrise or just after it ... The family has a vineyard however we couldn't get a tour because we wanted it in English and the fellow guests were all Germans. Other than that aspect , the stay was... 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

From the moment we walked in, we were taken by the charm and welcoming feel that the place holds. The team really want to make you feel comfortable and they are very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their hotel. Our room was incredibly spacious, clean and well equipped, with great views over the river and surrounding landscape. The restaurant had a... 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

We were biking the Austrian part of Danube bike trail (Linz-Vienna) and stay at this hotel was meant to be an evening and morning of relaxation before onward journey. And it was...nice food, big, locally produced breakfast (loved honey-lemon energy juice!), nice employees, beautiful spa&pool with Danube and Durnstein castle view... They let us check out quite late, so we... 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.

If you don't pay up extra but choose the somewhat cheaper rooms (which are still rather expensive) you get dumped in the old tract where rooms are darkish, smelly and a bit scabby---don't know about the other ones ("Genießerzimmer"). Most of the place looks onto the heavy-traffic Wachau road though some trees fence you off a little. I rented an... More
