The location of the Wachauerhof is excellent for going to see the abbey in Melk. We arrived in Melk late in the afternoon and walked through the village down to the Danube. A very pleasant walk with shops and restaurants along the way. On the way back (uphill) we divided the trip into two parts by stopping for dinner halfway... More

Stayed one night in early June as part of a walking tour of the Wachau. The room was clean but a bit light on extras such as tissues, soaps etc. Location is quite good being close to main part of town but far enough away to be quiet. Breakfast was adequate but a few more fresh items would have helped.The... More

Booked this to stay as part of cycling the Danube Way to Vienna from Passau. Nice hotel lots of secure locking for bikes, although if you have your own keep it well away from the tour groups on rental bikes, as they have no respect for privately owned stuff. Bit of a problem in that the hotel states rooms are... More

The room was very clean and the beds were nice. Breakfast was nice I think fresh fruit would have been nice. We spent the night and for the cost I felt it was reasonable. The owner works extremely hard. He was very kind to us.

Nice big rooms but hotel a bit anonymous. Bar pleasant and reasonable breakfasts. Also has restaurant attached to the hotel which was well frequented. Very good location for centre of town and close to the monastery. Plenty of parking including for bikes

Rooms: one of the best that I stayed in in the last year. The seem as they were renewed. Breakfast is good. But the hotel lacks of atmosphere. It was practically empty, the staff is poor with English and I felt like I was alone there. Maybe because it is not the main season ...

We stayed one night in this Hotel and found it to be quite comfortable and perfectly adequate for a short stay. The rooms were extremely clean and very comfortable. Absolutely no complaints there. The only difficult part was that the staff we encountered spoke very little English so it made some things a little hard as we also spoke very... More

We had a reservation confirmation at the Hotel Wachau, but when we got there they did not honor it and said it was for this hotel, the Wachauhof. We were too tired to complain so spent one night at the Wachauhof. As others here have stated it is a bit rundown or maybe just plain unattractive. The location is fine... More

The hotel is right in the heart of Melk, at the bottom of the hill where the Melk Monastery is situated. The hotel has very friendly and helpful staff, car parking and a nice restaurant. It is comfortable and clean but I believe it would benefit from some major refurbishment and a more contemporary interior design which would really raise... More

Stayed one night specifically to see the Abbey and do a trip on the Danube. Melk is an attractive town and the Abbey stunning. The Wachaurhof is quite large and in a good position next to the town centre and fifteen minutes walk to the river. It has plenty of parking. The rooms and the hotel generally are somewhat dated...
