“Diassapointing”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Stayed 1 night on Danube cycle trip . We were expecting to really like this hotel given the reviews but was underwhelmed on most counts . Our welcome was perfunctory and i don't think the owners acknowledged us at all during our stay . The room was massively over cluttered including at least 5/6 plants ( plastic and real) Breakfast was just about ok but had to keep asking for things that seemed either to have run out or should have been there . Our previous night had been in a similar size hotel at half the price where the welcome was warm and friendly and the breakfast better. . Overall we found the atmosphere to be unwelcoming

We stayed in the last available room that included its own bathroom. The room was small (just barely room for the bed and a dresser), but the price was right, and we were greeted very warmly. Breakfast was great; when the owner found out my wife has a pre-diabetes condition that requires her to keep carb consumption low, she went out of her way to make sure there was a big bowl of yogurt for her.

We also had dinner there, one of the best meals we had while in Austria.

Great guesthouse with warm and friendly staff. Cool and unique rooms with a delicious breakfast. We liked it so much we extended our stay. We had dinner at the restaurant which was also very nice. The owner was great he even brought my wife a cake and flowers at breakfast for her birthday.

This was our second visit to the Goldener Stern and what a warm welcome we received! It was wonderful to be back to stay in such a comfortable place.

This property sits below the Abbey and is in the centre of town so everything is handy.

Breakfast was as good as ever & it was lovely to be able to have just what we wanted. The boiled eggs, fresh rolls, fresh juices and tea were most welcome, as was the fruit.

Steps up stairs were not a problem as we received help with our luggage, up and down. Being driven to the station, after an early breakfast, was also most welcome. Thank you, Regina!

Our room was very comfortable and it was great to have juice & water produced on our arrival. Free WiFi was also good.

We would definitely recommend this establishment to others.

Room Tip: Room 4, upstairs, is worth the climb as it overlooks the church and has plenty of room with a table...

We were welcomed like we were coming home. The hotel sits in the shadow of the Melk Abbey and our spacious room overlooked the town and cathedral. It's a 15 minute walk from the river boat station which is how we arrived and a 5 minute walk to the train station. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent and breakfast was everything we could ever want and served at our table. There is no elevator, but stairs are gentle. As already mentioned, decor is eclectic which adds to the hotel's charm.

Room Tip: Our room upstairs with view of Melk and countryside was a good choice.

The Schmidt family operate the Goldener Stern on the basis that all guests are friends and all friends deserve the best accommodation and food. Frau Schmidt handles hosting and Herr Schmidt restaurant and cooking, along with other family, and a stay there beneathe the historic abbey in Melk will reward anyone with beautiful scenery, a quaint town, outdoor activity and the Danube River, and the Abbey itself. But, without the Goldener Stern the stay would not have been as nice.

Everything was perfect. We came back for the second time with a friend
Even the dog was so welcome and enjoyed his stay so much. The owner is so friendly and empathetic and really loves to welcome guests. We felt like we were at home
