The location of this hotel is amazing. It's situated just outside Salzburg and is a mere 20 minute walk into the city centre. The site itself is divine, it is nestled off the side of a road in smallish parklike grounds and hugs the side of a large lake which you can walk around.
I stayed with my mother in the Meierhof annex which was, as many people have said, nothing exceptional but for the price (merely 68 pounds for a double room and breakfast) I would have expected worse. The rooms are around average size but are well equipped with all the necessities. They are decorated in a cheerful, cosy style and have comfortable beds and pillows.
Breakfast is served in the Schloss itself in a beautiful room with massive windows and intricate wall coverings and cornices. It's exceedingly atmospheric and the breakfast is also of a good standard with both continental and cooked offerings.
You can also look around the other rooms in the Schloss including the library and Chinese drawing room which are beautiful.
Personally I feel this hotel is ideal if you don't mind being a little bit out of the city and want a different sort of atmosphere and style. Both my mother and I adored it.
