    Excellent and unique facility. Museum-like art everywhere, interesting local history and activities (boating on the Danube, shops in town, visiting churches, visiting nearby Melk Abbey). Good onsite breakfast and dinner option. Romantic dinner...

    The hotel was quaint and filled with antiques. The rooms were clean and a good size. The pool was a real treat! It was hot and the room had a fan which was a bonus. The breakfast buffet was great!
