This hotel is all about the views. Sited on the outer rim of a 180 degree turn in the Danube, practically all rooms have a wonderful view of the river both up and downstream.
Yet the main attraction of this place is the large terrace. That is sited one floor up overlooking the river. You have to book in advance to get the best tables by the river but the terrace is so wide that you can see the river from almost any table.
We had afternoon tea on the terrace. The Black Forest gateau was stunningly good. Later that evening we had dinner there as well. The menu is very old school, with lots of Austrian meat dishes. Outside of fish there isn't a lot for vegetarians.
Unfortunately the interior decoration of the bedrooms lets this place down. Like a bathroom with no shower cubicle or curtain - just a shower head on a coil over the bath. Also for a double room it was two single beds pushed together, and neither the beds or the linen were particularly good.
One other attraction - the hotel has a small health centre with a sauna, steam room and swimming pool. The pool was fine, perhaps a little cold, and it has some bizarre Greco style paintings.
