Hard to praise this beautiful hotel enough. The location, on a lake, is stunning, with amazing views over the lakes & up to the snow capped mountains, yet still fairly handy for central Salzburg. It was a short (3 miles) taxi ride from the airport which was around 10 euros, and it's a pleasant 2 mile walk to the centre... More

We appreciated the quieter location of the hotel, on the lake under beautiful mountains, south of the town center and on the other (back) side of the castle hill. The staff and our "Sound of Music" room were terrific. Although there was no AC, it was very comfortable to sleep with the window open. Indeed, the room was very comfy.... More

I stayed here as a participant of SGS. This is a great place to stay in Salzburg with breathtaking views. I enjoyed using their complimentary bicycle service to roam around the Schloss and the city. Highly recommended.

Staying in the location that the Sound of Music was filmed was too tempting to resist. I thought I might be disappointed. But it lived up to my hopes and exceeded them. My room was in the smaller building on the property, not in the main house. The room was new, immaculate and very well designed. Slept comfortably with the... More

This hotel in Salzburg is famed for the exterior of the building and its lake side gates - used for the Sound of Music.

We booked this hotel thinking that the price was oddly low and when we arrived we discovered that we were not actually in the main chateau but in an "annex" that reminded me of my college dorm. Nasty carpet, sterile rooms, rock hard beds, no amenities. However, the property was fabulous. One of the most beautiful places I have ever... More

This is perhaps the loveliest hotel I've ever stayed in. I disagree with reviewers that think the price is too high, my room (single) was only about 20 euros more than a room in a chain hotel. The lovely, private, quiet grounds (featured in The Sound of Music) are worth those 20 euros easily. The breakfast was being restocked right... More
