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.
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.
Atmosphere and staff service
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.
Everything, great room, impeccable service, excellent food. Our first experience with Booking.com was exceptional! None
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
Romantic atmosphere, perfect service and cuisine, stuff was very helpful
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,
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 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
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.
Very friendly staff, lovely rooms (suites really) and super food. Thoroughly recommended - beautiful location.
Very friendly and accommodating staff. Not easy to find. Street address listed does not exist so our GPS could not find hotel.
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.
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 staff was very kind the food (evening ) was excellent the rooms were big clean and comfort hard to find the entarance from the road
Quiet location for relaxing stay. Good facilities and food.
Domestic kitchen, fantastic wine, quiet place
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.
The room had a nice view facing the park with a lot of rose flowers.
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.
The location was terrific. The bed was a rock. Staff was not great,just ok.
warm medieval atmosphere, great dining, beautiful setting and view of the river Danube, fabulous location in old city of Durnstein n/a
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!!
Very nice and cozy atmosphere, friendly and kind staff, no problem with speaking english, good location for walking around the town.
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.
The friendliness of the staff, the fact that it's basically touching the Danube, the beautiful village, the surroundings, the beauty of the scenery and the friendliness of the staff. Breakfast was good, varied and plentiful. It also accepts pets at no extra charge. It's also tastefully decorated. No.
At first impression quite ordinary (for the Wachau, which has quite a hight standard), but the service is extraordinarily good because of the manager, who takes a very personal interest. The location is great, the amenities are all sufficient, and the breakfast is bountiful. no.
Being wonderfully located on the Danube bank, the hotel offers a high quality service and personal, cosy atmosphere. The manager is outstandingly helpful, the rooms are nice and quiet, and the breakfast is plentiful.
The very kind, personal attention of this family-run hotel. Moreover, the excellent breakfast.
Staff were wonderful - very friendly, breakfast was the best we had in Europe. Great location.
good service, family run business, nicely decorated country rooms, excellent breakfast unfotunat;y no garden access to relax in this beautiful surroundings, just a small terrace
Just about everything, especially the warmth of the personnel, the comfort and the location.
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.
Unusual rooms blending old and new leading into intimate courtyard of medieval building. Friedly helpful staff. N/a
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.
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
Wonderful family atmosphere. Excellent, friendly service in wonderful surroundings.
Helpful suggestions for activities and dining. Excellent breakfast. Pleasant eco fresh water pool.
We liked everything about our stay here. The innkeeper was very helpful and the design of the building was very nice. We would definitely stay here again.
I liked the owners they were very friendly and helpful.I liked the style of the hotel and the rooms very much. It was very good value and I really liked the pond for swimming.
Nice garden and country view. Family access from staff.
Wonderful staff, very clean and comfortable large rooms. Especially wonderful for families as thier nice equipments. Good location to visit Wachau area by car. Also Nikolaihof is famous for wine field and how their wine taste nice..!! I would say this hotel makes people happy from adults till small children!!
Accomodation at vineyard; You can buy the wine produced at the property. None
Great place! My girlfriend and I loved everything about it...it was clean, comfortable and very relaxing. The pool/pond was a big hit as was the late night bar service that was available (consisting of taking beers or wine from the fridge and paying next morning). Staff were very friendly and helped us with a great recommendation for dinner (Klostkeller in Derstein if memory serves which is a five minute drive away and fantastic)...We also liked the hassle-free buffet breakfast (can show up when you want and as late as you want). If we are lucky enough to come to this part of the world again we will definitely stay here...
This is a family-run hotel and they were very friendly and helpful. Their English helped us alot too.
Owners run the hotel with a lot of love and it shows. They are very hospitable and accommodating. The room is designed for an intimate couple. If you travel with a friend, with the shower cubicle in the room, one person will have to leave the room for the other person to have some privacy. Also, more options for hot breakfast would have been nice.
Everything has been perfect. The staff was just wonderful. The rooms spacious and charming. It is 100% recommended. Our rating: 10! No, everything was perfect!!!
A family run hotel which we found very friendly and welcoming,great location,and a lovely breakfast.
very friendly owners,very clean and comfortable rooms in a very beautiful area. Enjoyed very much our stay and will definitely visit again.
staff very friendly,good service
Weissenkirche is the heart of Wachau, beautiful countryside. A wine producers next door who present his wine accompanied with cold meals.
The kindest and most pleasant inn keeper . She even sent us to the train station with her own car to a town some distance away. Her heart is in this business and the welfare of her guests. Perhaps location. Just the town was some distance away from the other town and the train connnection to this town was blocked by rocks for sometime.
The personal service was wonderful and all of our questions no matter how big/small were answered. We would go back tomorrow if we had more holiday time! Highly recommened.
