We had the same issue as always when booking with booking.com in that we were given the room at the back, but saying that the room was very nice and the hotel has a lovely restaurant, good service and very centrally located. I would go back there.

This lovely comfortable hotel has a beautiful view of the Abbey on the hilltop and offers a delicious breakfast. The hosts certainly make you feel at home! If you're UP for it, the walk to the Abbey is enjoyable (but keep in mind that you'll be walking UP to the Abbey)! After a day spent visiting the Abbey we had... More

On my pleasant visit to Melk, I had the misfortune to choice this restaurant to have lunch. My wife ordered wiener schnitzel. What was served was a fatty piece of chicken skin soaked in cooking oil. There wasn't any meet, just fatty skin. When I call the manager to complain, he offered me free coffee, but didn't take the wiener... More

Very quaint little place - lovely location right at the foot of the Abbey and friendly staff. The breakfast is quite a spread and include in the price of the room. The rooms are nice but no fans so we were forced to upgrade to a room with AC since the weather was extremely warm . Also too many mosquitoes... More

It is difficult to find negatives when staying at Hotel zur Post. We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed every one of them. Check-in was swift and friendly. Our room was larger than most European hotel rooms that we stayed in during our 20 day/5 country European vacation and it had a beautiful view of the Stift. The service by... More

We wandered in on our way to the river ferry after visiting the abbey. It was a Sunday afternoon and they were crowded with local extended families having Sunday lunch together. Despite being crowded and having no reservation, they found us a table, and we enjoyed excellent food with impeccable service. It seems to be a very well run small... More

we called in here by chance and though busy, they found us a table in the residents dining room. we found the food to be very good, a little bit more expensive than neighbouring establishments but the standard of service and décor made it worthwhile. Recommended

Spent four nights after a five minute walk from the railway station! "Quaint" is not the right word but it will have to do. Room 302 is on the second floor...but there is a lift. Not air conditioned. Bathroom a bit small. BUT ... You can open the window, get some real fresh air and listen to the birds. You... More

Very welcoming and nothing too much trouble. Very central with close access to monastery . Rooms are medium sized, clean and light . Restaurant serves excellent food and wine and breakfasts are very good . Is very much a place where the locals meet too. Stayed for 5 days while on a course and would definitely book in again.
