Dear travelmum2 Thank you very much for your kind review, particularly your comments about our staff. Your summary hits the nail on the head: instead of charging our guest for each little thing we have included most services in our room rates. Exploring the gardens, park, and Schloss itself, a unique privilege exclusive to our guests, is of course also... More

Lovely location and a stunning building. we travelled as a family, myself, Husband and adult Daughter. All of us fans of the "Sound of Music" film and being honest this was the reason for our choice.

We stayed here in June and stayed in the Meierhof, which has recently been updated. It was fabulous. I would avoid staying in the schloss for now. If they redo it with anything like the quality of the Meierhof's remodel, it will be fabulous. Breakfast in the schloss and wandering the property were highlights of our visit. The staff is... More

We visit Salzburg every year to attend the music festival and this year we chose this hotel because we did not want to be in the crowded city center. The location is great, 20 minutes walking to town but you feel like you are miles away in the middle of nature, overlooking a small lake and mountains. Unfortunately it was... More

We originally wanted to stay in the old part of Salzburg, but the hotels we were interested in were booked — and thank goodness, because otherwise we never have stumbled upon the Schloss Leopoldskron!

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a Sound of Music pilgrammage, the setting is stunning. Hardly saw any staff around, it was like we had the whole place to ourselves so we were free to roam around the building and explore to our hearts content. Breakfast in the ballroom was excellent.

We recently stayed in the recently refurbished Meierhof building at the Schloss, having stayed at this property a couple times before. In the past we loved the locale, the lake, and the historical feeling of the Schloss, but the rooms were shabby....Now, we would rate the quality of the Meierhof rooms as equal to any nice, modern hotel.

We spent 4 nights in the beautifully renovated Maierhof of the Hotel Schloss Leopoldskron. The attitude and the hospitality of each staff member is extraordinary in this hotel.
