While in Austria, my husband and I briefly visited Duernstein at the recommendation of my father who had visited the year prior. I'm very glad we did! Our room at Hotel Schloss Duernstein offered comfortable accommodations and an exquisite view of the river. We truly enjoyed our dinner on the hotel's outdoor patio and had an amazing breakfast on our...

I am frequent guest in this hotel. In this summer, I realised: the style has changed. The original owners, managers retired. The New generation of the family is very different. No more elegance and gracefulness... The big period of this old style hotel has finished... it was a pity!

Dear Sir, we thank you very much for your comment. It is definitely a pity that you do not see our efforts that we made for you. All your displeasure comes from a table in the restaurant - one of the best tables at the balustrade on our danube terrace at all (under the blind) - that you did not...

This hotel is the historical hotel in town. It offers a very nice view. I really love its restaurant overlooking river and mountains. It's the perfect place to have drinks at the sunset. The guest room is quite spacious considering that this is hotel in country side. The service was just ok. It's quite fun to stay there. I loved...

this is a great place to visit this region, staff is very nice and welcome, it has two kinds of rooms, I think the cheapest and the suites are in the old european style, so if this is your taste, you can choose one of them if not in the upper floor there are more modern rooms with a very...

Charming old world feel. Each room is different & spacious. Ours had a real WC, which was really charming. Love the spaciousness of the room, the vaulted ceiling. Very clean & comfortable (except if you are a couple, even though the beds are together creating a queen size, there is a gap between the mattresses.) We were here for the...

This is a great place with great rooms, great decor and great views. The members of the staff are great too - friendly, helpful and always accommodative. They helped us in many ways while we were there and at the end of our visit actually drove us down to the bus stop which happened to be some distance away. This...

We planned our stay here as a break on our 5 week European trip and as a special celebration. We booked the lowest category of room and were happy to be staying in a 16th castle. We were shown to a spacious room (No 20) with 3 windows overlooking the Danube and we were delighted as we spent time in...

We stayed at this hotel over a weekend, which was planned long ahead. 6 months prior to arrival I have specifically asked by email for a nice light and quiet room in the best category, which was confirmed twice by email prior to our arrival.

We spent a night at Hotel Schloss during our recent trip to Austria. We arrived there by boat from Melk. Highly recommend the boat trip and the hotel. Very beautiful area and a nice, quiet, romantic stop in an otherwise hectic travel schedule.
