True 5 star accommodations

Posted May 22, 2014
Pros: See above. We also enjoyed the many antiques and paintings. Sitting in the wing back chairs in the library for after dinner cappuccino was delightful.
Cons: Birds had "access" to the hotel. Where there are birds, there are droppings.
Location: Castle ruins, shopping, relaxing and day trips.
The restaurant and staff were superb....especially Helga. A little hard for road novices to get to, but once there, I was glad I made the effort. We had a terrific view of the Danube and the picture postcard town across the river. Plenty of comfortable public space to lounge in for coffee or drinks. Private no cost parking was also a plus. Since we were without our golden retriever Molly, we enjoyed the house dog, who I nicknamed Joe.

A beautiful and romantic hotel

Posted Jul 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
Visited the hotel on our honeymoon and we wished that we could stay longer. The hotel is very nice, with excellent accommodations and a great restaurant on the terrace overlooking the Daube river. It is located in the old part of the tiny village of Durnstein, which is well worth the visit. A very relaxing and romantic place.

you must see austria from Durnstein at this hotel

Posted Sep 28, 2012 on Hotels.com
fabulous hotel and surroundings with great outdoor pool and a Roman type indoor pool that made me feel like a queen. The breakfast included with the room was extraordinary and we enjoyed the views, library, and private pianist in the lobby area. It was quit the effort to get their, but well worth the trip to this part of Austria and this fine hotel.

A little fusty

Posted Sep 12, 2012
Pros: The restaurant terrace was lovely, if chilly. The turn down service was a nice touch.
Cons: Swimming pool hours, shabby carpets.
Location: In lovely Durnstein in the Wachau.
Schloss Durnstein was fine, though I didn't feel that anything apart from the building itself set it apart from anywhere else we stayed on our holiday. The service was fine and the restaurant was good, if unremarkable for the price. The room was lovely, though the carpet looked old and a bit shabby. We would have taken advantage of the pool, but the hours were so circumscribed as to make it inconvenient for those who are out doing things during the day. The hotel seems to aim for holiday makers who get situated and then pay for salon services, arranged outings, etc. We're more independent than that and perhaps not the best fit for this place.

Perfect Stay

Posted May 29, 2012
Location: Magnificent
Couldn't be more beautiful and comfortable. Also, be sure to have dinner at the hotel. The half-board menu for guests is wonderful.
