We stayed at the Schloss Durnstein in Durnstein, Austria for three nights in August. The restaurant at the hotel is remarkable for its excellent food and the serene, beautiful setting overlooking the Danube. Dinner is not over quickly, especially if you order the five-course (or more) "surprise" menu. But it was three plus hours very well spent. We ate there all three nights (usually a little more quickly) and didn't regret it. The breakfast buffet had everything we could have wished for (and more) and was also served at the tables on the terrace. Our room at the hotel (room number 10) was very large and comfortable. It only lacked a direct view of the river. The bathroom is unusual, a corner of the room partitioned off and turned into a sink, shower, toilet area. Unusual, but it worked fine. The hotel has a beautiful outdoor and also indoor pool with powerful jets and water features, a steam room and a sauna which we used every day. Service was excellent, the pubiic areas extensive and beautiful. The little town of Durnstein, which is right at the hotel's doorstep, is touristy but charming. Danube river boats depart directly below the hotel; we enjoyed our boat trip to Spitz and back. We drove to the Melk Abbey upriver, also a fun excursion. We even walked to the ruins on the top of the hill. The hotel isn't cheap, that's for sure, but definitely worth it. I'm already dreaming about going back, maybe in the fall when it's cooler and the leaves are changing color.
