Pros: The castle was beautiful and the scenery was from a fairy tale.
Cons: We paid an extra $38 per night charge for an extra guest but apparently that charge didn't include his breakfast as we were charged an extra $17 per day for it. The 4 course dinner was only 3 courses and wasn't worth $38, drinks not included. No wifi
Originally dating from 1199, this historic castle in Bernstein in Central Burgenland is the birthplace of Ladislaus Almásy, whose life was featured in the movie "The English Patient", which won 9 oscars. His descendants still run the hotel today. Each of the spacious rooms at Burg Bernstein is decorated with original furnishings and has a tiled stove, wooden floors, a seating area, and a private bathroom. Breakfast including homemade jams, and typical Burgenland specialities are served in the Renaissance-style Great Hall dating from 1580, which is entirely illuminated by candlelight. Guests can visit the historic garden, the chapel, and the Knights’ Hall. An outdoor pool is available, and free WiFi is provided in public areas. Free private parking is also available at Burg Bernstein.
