the terrace and dining areas, and the friendliness of the staff
the hotel was very nice, clean, excellent.... no, everything was excellent.
The bathroom was spacious I thought the serving staff could have been friendlier
Clean, comfortable room, excellent bathroom, fabulous restaurant - 5 stars
The staff was very friendly and helpful This is not a four star hotel it is maximum three stars therefore I consider the price a little too expensive
Setting, cleansiness Close to the main road
Good place, staff, comfort, design, food
I felt that the room price was high in comparison with other Austrian hotels that we have stayed in.
Staff were helpful. Light meant to illuminate hotel was shining into our room at night.
Loved the outside garden restaurant! Also appreciated having an area inside to smoke. Breakfast was wonderful!
very quaint and comfortable. Lovely breakfast buffet available at 7:00 am for people who needed or wanted to be up and out early.
Room was rather gloomy.
Location was excellent and staff were able to accomadate our bikes. Romm was very good value and breakfast was good.
The restaurant was quite good and hotel staff was very kind.
Charming small hotel in excellent location. Very nice restaurant. Rooms are comfortable but aging.
The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice and very lean. It was a great location in a great little town
The quality of the food (fresness, taste,......).
Breakfast - both layout and the restaurant ambiance. Somewhat noisy at night.
the difficult to carry our luggage until our room at the end of the building
Family owned. They were friendly and helpful. Nice room. Good food. Convienient to the Abbey and the river cruise.
This hotel was in an excellent location and the staff tried to be helpful. There was a restaurant in the hotel which was a bonus. Two light bulbs did not work which was annoying
location is excellent, right in town centre and easy walk from the river terminus. Also a good choice of fresh food for breakfast bed was practical rather than luxurious and internet facilities were limited
The staff was wonderful
close to old town and monestary ants on the table at breakfast and room was by entrance - noisey with bus load and off load
Room is clean. Reception staff was nice.
Perfect location; clean, comfortable room; great breakfast (dining area and food); excellent restaurant adjacent. Zero bad points.
The easy parking and convience to the town centre.
Excellent location minutes from Abbey. Hotel had lift! Large and hearty breakfeast buffet. Large and bright room. Staff very pleasant. No ac, paper thin pillows.
I liked the room, the meals, the staff. I think the staff are flexible and polite.
Quaint hotel on the Danube River, a few miles from the Melk Abbey. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful, and the cooking excellent.
The menu in the restaurant was uninspiring. Between the hotel and the river, there is a busy road, which was really very annoying.
Staff amability. Very small bathroom.Room refurbishment needed.No air conditioning.Poor breakfast.
Tres beau paysage. Calme, silence, on se reveille au chant des oiseaux. les proprietaires sont charmants et souriants. Les odeurs de fritures et d'ail venant de la cuisine a l'heure du petit dejeuner.........
We enjoyed the hotel and being able to walk along the shores of the Danube as well as seeing the river from our room windows. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
attention of the staf the food is poor, but it is all over the area in these kind of hotels.
Great place with big rooms, very accomodating staff/owner, nice view of the Danube from the bier garten, good food. Nothing, we would return again.
Friendly staff. Good service
We liked the room, the staff and the breakfast. The view from the dining room was over the Danube which is just across the road. No, but be careful that your sat-nav does not take you to one of the other 2 hotels nearby with the same name!
Really friendly staff and well equipped rooms - LCD TV, Internet. We're missing vegetables and fruits during breakfast.
First time driving in Austria, we missed the check-in time. However, the staffs were nicely waiting for us.
Lovely family-run hotel in small village on Danube. Is along the bike path for the Danube and also caters to people doing bike excursions (fahrrad). Close to Melk - Danube boat rides and Abbey. Free internet in room and they even supplied the cable for us for our computer (not WiFi). Nice restaurant also run by the family. Nothing - all was great.
Leo and his staff were welcoming and very helpful, hospitable and had a great sense of humor! I loved this little area north of Krems near the Wachau wine area. A nice alternative to the pricey Wachau areas (Durstein, Spitz etc). Great breakfast (featuring their own apricot jam) and also we ate dinner at the Pension and had a very nice well prepared meal. The local wine was offered (very refreshing) and a simple but good variety of choices for dinner. Great salad, turkey with a lovely sauce and rice, and my husband had a wurst with dumping and sauercraut with beer. Crepes were recommended by the table across from us so we tried them and were rewarded by freshly made skillet crepes with apricot jam- delicious!
We arrived too late for meal but owner kept chef on as long as he could but we were just too late but sent us over the rode for cold platter and very cheap and very good local wine great evening.The owner could not have been nicer recommend to anybody especially value for money and aoricot jam!!! Nothing
I'd a great stay and am totally impressed by their great hospitality!They picked me up and sent me to the trian station, borrowed me a bike and even we had a farewell drink just before i left! The breakfast (and actually the food) was really good. I could even feel they wanna provide the best for their guests. The room's spacious and very clean. The bed's comfortable. very relaxing to stay there with a river just next to it. I definitely would recommend this hotel.
Leo was very knowledgeable and helpful about local attractions. He spoke very good English which was also helpful to us..The hotel's Homemade Apricot Jam was the best I ever ate. This hotel is excellent value for the price.
During our stay at the Gasthof-Pension Leopold Janu we really enjoyed the cordiality and camaraderie of Leopold, his wife and the rest of the staff. This Gasthof is really well kept and is located in a charming surrounding. The cuisine is exquisite not to forget the copious breakfast served at your table. This is a fantastic place for daily visits of neighboring towns along the Danube. We always enjoyed discussing our daily excursions with Leopold and a glass of local Grüner Veltliner wine upon our return. We strongly recommend this place to anyone and we will return to visit Leopold when the next occasion arises.
We were really impressed with this guest house. The rooms are very cozy, clean and comfortable. Our double room had 2 bathrooms. The location is great to explore the Wachau area. Easy to find and free parking was available. There was plenty of info and brochures about things to do in the area. The place is family run and you can tell that the owners really love what they do - the service, the interior, the food were perfect. The breakfast was great - they offer home made apricot jam, we even bought some to take home. We were very glad with this guest house and will definitely recommend it to friends.
The hotel is situated in a beautiful landscape and has wonderful peisages in the nearby. The hotel is situated too far from Wien, in the middle of nowhere and has very limited services provided.
Extremely helpful and friendly family; wonderful experience in Austrian family. Strongly recommend.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - Leo and his partner provided super quality of service, great and large breakfast. The rooms were clean, beds and pillows comfortable, private. Leo is very friendly and knowledgable about Ausrtia, speaks excellent English.
Very nice family run hotel in the countryside, in the middle of Austria's wine region. The landscape is very beautiful, and there are a lot of bicycle path in the surrounding hills. The stuff is very nice and helpful, the breakfast is very delicious, and you can taste a home-made jam of the house. The price is moderate compared to other hotels in the region. St. Pölten is only 30km.
evening meal was excellant; one or two members of staff were very friendly and helpful. Holel and restaurant have good ambience. swimming pool was too cold. Spa was also cool and we had to keep getting out to switch it back on 20yds away One member of staff was very curt and unwelcoming. Room was huge but lay-out could have been better. Separate toilet with no hand basin. All information at hotel is in German. A little info in English would have felt more welcoming
The food was excellent. The pool is indoors so you can enjoy it in any weather. Difficulty communicating. Most staff doesn't speak English and one can feel ignored or isolated when you try to greet them or speak.
quality price was perfect. staff friendly and competent. swimming pool, etc. for the type of hotel was perfect. staff did cope very well with the high water of the "Donau problems very wel. The rooms are well equipped and very large; comfortable for staying inside by bad weather. Well situated for making trips, cycling, walking, etc. Night time very quiet. Only disadvantage the rooms with balcony are positioned around the entrance square where people do not always realise that they speak loud, etc. But in general quite quiet.
The room was very spacious and clean. The breakfast had wide choices of cold and warm food. Since I arrived late the night and left early for the Melk Abbey, I regretted not able to try out the indoor pool and sauna. I would definitely recommend it to anyone travelling with a car. (One probably irrelevant point: most of the paintings hung inside the hotels and the room were beautiful.)
The hotel was quite nice and had excellent facilities. They overbooked, so put us in a different hotel in a different town for the first night. We were meeting friends there, so being in different towns was not very convenient. The hotel handled things very pleasantly, but should not have allowed other guests to extend their stay so there was no room for us the first night.
Pretty little hotel. Nice indoor swimming pool. Location is in a tiny residential area. Not even a town center to go to.
We liked the relaxing atmosphere of the hotel, and the restaurant was excellent. We had a lot of difficulty in finding the way in. It turned out to be a very sharp turn through a hole in the wall under the railway line - off a very busy road.
Very friendly and accommodating staff. Not easy to find. Street address listed does not exist so our GPS could not find hotel.
staff pleasant and helpful; good food Great selection at brkf. There was construction going on in the front remodeling garden and pool. It was noisy and by the restaurant when we were trying to eat dinner. They worked until late, about 7pm and started again early at about 730am which is early if you are on a vacation and may want to sleep in.
Breakfast was excellent, hotel very clean, splendid view. The hotel is quite hard to find, it is a little too far from the town. The bed had a radio placed at the top of the bed on the middle, very annoying for was because our child slept with us and he kept hurting his head.
The hotel was clean It6 was too far to walk into durnstein.Right on the road but not too noisy at night Drinks very expensive for own vinyard No
Nice room. Nicely appointed. Very energetic, friendly and helpful staff. Outside of town. Too far to walk, certainly in hot weather, but parking in town is easy.
the staff was very kind the food (evening ) was excellent the rooms were big clean and comfort hard to find the entarance from the road
Very friendly staff, lovely rooms (suites really) and super food. Thoroughly recommended - beautiful location.
Everything, great room, impeccable service, excellent food. Our first experience with Booking.com was exceptional! None
Atmosphere and staff service
Romantic atmosphere, perfect service and cuisine, stuff was very helpful
This is a great hotel with wonderful history. It is a great place to begin exploring the wine area and medieval towns along the Danube. The town is adorable and there are cool ruins a short walk up the hill.
We love this place. A gorgeous quiet hotel that puts work way out of your mind. Great place to relax and unwind.
Hotel Schloss Durnstein was a wonderful treat! We had 15 year old daughter with us and she felt like a princess. The hotel restaurant was excellent. Our eyes rolled when they brought out the chocolate cherry dessert. Elegant display and service. Another favorite was the spa. It was beautiful and we had the entire pool to ourselves. Daughter loved the tanning solarium
We had a truly lovely time, from the beginning to the end. We carried huge luggage but they gave us a lift from the pier to the hotel entrance, (we will remember the kindness and patience of the driver who went all through the crowded road) the room was upgraded and superb, the staff helpful and meals delicious. We regret we only stayed one night. I would change the curtains, though there were sun screens so not a real problem. But it would be nicer if they were practical as well, not just decorations.
Food, Danube terrace, Swimming Pool, Hotel atmosphere, Lack of aircondition, reservation system was not up to date, no internet access at the room, too much German speaking TV channels,
Situated directly on the Danube in a gorgeous region of Austria, the Hotel Schloss Durnstein is a wonderful hotel -- great rooms with fantastic views and a very pleasant and helpful staff. Breakfast on the terrace above the Danube was a highlight of our trip.
The location was terrific. The bed was a rock. Staff was not great,just ok.
Nice and confortable hotel but a little bit old fashion.According to the standing of the hotel some add ons or updatse would be welcome : fitness centre, real free wifi, meals less old fashion style, reception more dynamic and more helpfull.
Quiet location for relaxing stay. Good facilities and food.
warm medieval atmosphere, great dining, beautiful setting and view of the river Danube, fabulous location in old city of Durnstein n/a
The room had a nice view facing the park with a lot of rose flowers.
Domestic kitchen, fantastic wine, quiet place
This was my 3rd stay at the hotel. Obviously I like it very much. I love the warm reception, the friendly staff, the beautiful antiques, the large, comfortable, clean rooms, the Danube views, the excellent cuisine, the extensive list of superior Wachau wines and sitting on the terrace for meals. The management clearly cares about maintaining and consistently imoroving the hotel. George M.
I liked the help given by the staff at reception and the duvets and bathroom and other amenities provided inthe room. Although luxuries were provided in the room it was very inconvenient--- not enough space to lay things in bathroom,No drawers for storage, the shelves which might have been used were taken up by blankets. robes, pool towels, and safe leaving only 2 empty shelves at a low and inconvenient level. The surface space in the room was minimal and further reduced by brochures etc.In view of the fact that I booked very early I should have been given a room with a view of the water.
Very nice and cozy atmosphere, friendly and kind staff, no problem with speaking english, good location for walking around the town.
We were disappointed of the hotel. The staff was not very friendly (zigarettes in the hand when we brought back the bicicle and so on). For a 4 Star hotel no mini bar!!!! we never have seen this!!
The restaurant prices were very reasonable and the food was very good. Breakfast was great and staff were happy to accomodate us a few minutes early due to our schedule. The location was good. Several times the reception desk was unattended and we had to find staff. First floor rooms we booked were at high end but views were inferior to upstairs views. Furniture placed in front of all windows decreased accessibility to views in all rooms we booked.
Very good breakfast (mainly for the jams and bread). Good meals. The room was provided with all needed things, and the bathroom was large and comfortable. Staff have been very kind and friendly. The hotel is in a very good position, expecially if one has a car or a motorbike. The conditioning and ventilation plant was quite noisy, and also working at night. It is not a bad idea to bring a pair ear-plugs. Not a real problem anyway. The window was lacking a net against insects, but I found out that mosquitos were not a problem there.
Bed very soft and sqeaked
Lovely location, nice staff, view on demand. Excellent breakfast. Very quiet
All our requests beforehand were carried out - confimed on arrival , and proffessionally seen to.Staff very friendly and caring.
Beautiful location and views, good resturant. A great place to stay, short drive to the Abbey Melk.
All was very good. The food was excellent. The hotel is in a very good and nice location.
Cery friendly servivces, also they accept dogs and you can walk your dog along Dunau river 50m from the hotel
Second time we visit this comfertable hotel. We visited this hitel one year ago. The restaurant staff had improved their english and the meny was also in written English this time :-) We had 10 points for the food last year, but thsi year we can only give the 7 point. We will return again to this hotel their beautiful location. None
Location, staff. great selection on breakfast. The hotel's restaurant was very expensive comparing to what it had offered, but that's outside of the hotel's package.
Super-friendly staff, warmly welcoming us and our dog. Very charming room, in a historical building, where the atmosphere of the olden days is well preserved. Beautiful surroundings with vineyards and easy walking trails.
Wonderful family atmosphere. Excellent, friendly service in wonderful surroundings.
Unusual rooms blending old and new leading into intimate courtyard of medieval building. Friedly helpful staff. N/a
The hotel staff was very kind and helpful and the restaurant served excellent food of very generous portions. The outdoor tables were lovely. The town is in a very picturesque location near the Danube and it is surrounded by vineyards. The rooms were ample and nice. The shower water temperature control did not function very smoothly. Found some pebbles on the carpet of our room, we don't know why.
Central location, nice and friendly staff
Hotel staff is very kind and are willing to make you feel comfortable in their hotel.
Everything was fine - friendly, pleasant, well-located, excellent breakfast. Would stay there again if in the area.
