    Nothing that I can think of.

    The hotel restaurant is fabulous. Our two dinners there were among the best of our three weeks in Austria; breakfast is excellent, especially for the freshly squeezed orange juice. The hotel offers free use of electrically assisted bicycles which we borrowed to ride along the Danube to Krems a.m. day back. The electric assist made the return upstream a breeze.

    The hotel is situated at the edge of the small town of Melk, in a forestry area. The place is very quite and relaxing. The view from the hotel terrace is outstanding. Services are very good and the breakfast is consistent and has many choices.

    Air condition was lacking, which I think is a drawback four a four-star hotel, in the middle of summer sleeping comfort is not adequate without. Location is not really good, unless you have a car and want to be conveniently close to the motorway. It's beyond normal walking distance to town itself.

    The restaurant was outstanding, the 3-course meal among the best I've had anywhere in Austria. Also a good breakfast.

    Very strange that there is so-called room service at 7:00 am and without knocking at door! The same thing happened again at about 9:00 am. We are quite scared at first time that even thought it was thief opening our room! My advice is that be sure you have locked your doors before sleep and keep the key at the lock to ensure that no one can open outside. Just in case.

    Location great. Food is great but a little expensive. Love the fish and noodles, and starters and deserts as well. Parking place is enough and just at the door.

    The breakfast is plentiful but there were NO STAFF on duty. The place was deserted even at 8.15am. There were menus on the tables offering a variety of cooked eggs but I had to go to Reception (deserted) to ask for service. This hotel claims to be 500 metres from the Danube and that may well be so but it is a mile and a quarter (about 2 km) uphill from the town of Melk also located on the Danube so it is not ideally located for cyclists who wish to go back and forth sightseeing in the town.

    The bedroom was very nice and spacious and the hotel has good secure facilities for bike storage.
