Loved my stay! The staff was professional and knowledgeable about the surrounding towns and sites to visit. The breakfast was very, very good. Even had a bottle of Sekt to taste. The room had all the amenities and luxuries of a Michelin star hotel. The spa was the best part.

Best hotel's staff as I've ever seen in Austria.We were first time in Wachau region, and we needed various information: receptionists were absolutely helpful, they answers all our questions - restaurants recommendations, reservations, hiking tips, landmarks in wide surroundings.

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
