“Conveniently”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

Stayed for three nights on a familyholiday in June 2014.
We found the hotel very cosy with a excellent location in the countryside thou very close to the lake and the city of Zell am see.
The room was spacious and clean, Staff was great.
About breakfast perhaps a couple of more things to choose from would be desirable for a hotell with this standard, but everything was for satisfaction.
Beside the hotel there is a Michelin restaurang, Didn´t unfortantly try it because we were traveling with small children thou we had early dinner twice in the hotell and it tasted very very good reasonable prices too. Higly endorsing.
We were visiting the private beach once, It was a small garden with sunbeds and a little cottage for dress change.Nice.
Sorry to say that is not so nice to take a bath in. Not clean at all, a pity but nothing the hotel can do about it.

The hotel is also equipped with a bathing house with 2 saunas and a outside shower which was very appreciated by the whole family.

Overall we had a very nice stay at Schloss Prielau and we will be back.

Wonderful castle with a very friendly staff! We had a late arrival, but they organized our room and got our suitcases to the room. (I'm glad as the room was on the 3rd floor). Good breakfast buffet and they made eggs of your choice upon request. The rooms were spacious and the bathrooms new and delicate. The reason for why I won't give them a top score is the lack of air condition. They also have a Michelin star restaurant next door, Mayer - but I fortunately only open on selected days. It looked like a they served a very tasty menu!! Would definatly come back here, if we return for a skiing adventure.

After reading the previous glorifying reviews we felt we should try the Schloss. Unfortunately I must agree with the poor reviews. On arrival the reception is not staffed, it felt as walking into someones home without asking.Eventually I traced a waited in the kitchen who handed over the keys and showed us to the room. He mentioned there is no staff after 6 as everyone concentrates on running their restaurant next door. I felt generally unwelcome and there was a lack of attention to guests. There was a wedding party the same time so the landlady and staff were mostly worried about them and the restaurant. WOuldnt be there a helpful waitress at breakfast who gave us some tips as to what to see, we would have been l;eft to our our devices. Room standard wasnt great, suggest not to take the standard double bed, its tiny, converted tower cell.The other room ( much more expensive) seemed nicer. Theroom was dirty, had at least dozen od dead flies on our bed and the cleaner comes in for 5 mins to change the towels. Overall for 500 Euro !!!!! ( 3 nights ) I felt the price was extortionate , you might as well go to 4 star in Berlin , Barcelona, Vienna where they know how to run a hotel.Dissapointed.

Room Tip: stay away from the standard room

On our honeymoon we decided to spend some days in Zell Am See and this hotel seemed a great choice, but we left with mixed feelings. The "castle" in itself is beautiful, room was very large and full of charme. Other good point was the breakfast, full of choices. What left us disappointed is the service...The staff runs not only the hotel but also the 2 stars michelin restaurant that is part of the structure, so at 6 pm the hotel is left with no one to manage it and the only option is dinner to this very good but also expensive restaurant (you may afford once) or drive to the city centre which is 3 miles away. So be careful, you need a car, especially if you want to ski. The manager was polite and helped us with ski renting and lessons booking, however it seemed too few people around it. Also no internet connection in the rooms and very slow in the common areas, no lift too. Considering how expensive it is, value for money is pretty low. If you are looking for a place nearby the slopes or vibrant this is not the best option. If you want a romantic and quiet week end it may suit.

We stayed at the Schloss for the best part of a week during a skiing break with the children. We had booked the very spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bedroom floor, which was a little too big for us, but we wanted space and 2 bathrooms. The hospitality and personal warmth extended by the hostess was exemplary; she was gracious and friendly, and went out of her way to make our stay comfortable (by providing me with a kettle, for one, so that I could make endless cups of tea!). The children were delighted by the character of the place and loved the breakfast; they have begged to be taken back during the summer. A few comments, however. Our floor looked a little 'tired'. There is 'character', and then there are worn through sofa coverings, curtains coming off their hooks, and holes in the linen. It was wonderful to have a baby grand piano in the apartment, but my daughter soon gave up trying to play as the piano was completely out of tune. The apartment was asking to be renovated to include a small kitchen; not so profitable for the owners, perhaps, but we were rattling around in the two, large (three, if you include the one with a double bed) reception rooms. Finally, if the kitchen could extend its hours beyond 6 pm, that would be an enormous plus point. In this way a family can have a pleasant but simple meal, rather than being obliged to either dine in the sumptuous restaurant attached to the Schloss , or go out. Nevertheless, I would heartily recommend this place to other families, as its plus points outweigh the critical ones!

We spent only one night at this amazing hotel but were impressed totally. The castle is beautiful, located in a nice park, close to the main road but still tranquil, facing the lake. The interiors are tastefully decorated and the staff is extremely friendly. The rooms are stylish, the bathrooms are exceptionally well designed. High quality materials are everywhere. We also had dinner in the hotel's restaurant "Mayer's" which was an unforgettable experience, the food was excellent, the ambience of the restaurant including the staff is beyond satisfaction. The breakfast was also very good. I cannot say anything bad - except that it was a little bit cold for us in the room during the night, but it was April, hard to follow the changeable weather. And maybe the only problem was that our room was on the 3rd floor and there is no elevator, we coud hardly went upstairs after the long dinner.
I would recommend the place mostly for couples - what more can you ask for a romantic night than a superb dinner, a little walk in the garden and a night in the castle? Every girl will feel like a real princess.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor - since there is no elevator. :-)

I stayed here and we had the entire castle to ourselves. The staff, food, drinks, etc... are the best and I have never felt freedom on vacation like I did while I stayed here. This is a definate place to stay if you are in or near Zell am See.
