Booking.com guest review guidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or quiet room than someone who’s stayed at the property before?
We want you to share your story, both the good and the bad. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinion and experiences, which are critical in helping guests make well-informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, and are treated with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full, as quickly as possible, after being moderated to comply with Booking.com guidelines. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
Once a review has been submitted, you can modify it by contacting Booking.com customer service.
We will use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content as well as the property replies to that content.
We will allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is that of a distributor of feedback from both guest and property.
Guidelines and standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly without limiting expression of strong opinions. They are also applicable regardless of the sentiment of the comment.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include 'hate speech', discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, and the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.
By default, reviews are sorted based on the date of the review and on additional criteria to display the most relevant reviews, including but not limited to: your language, reviews with text, and non-anonymous reviews. Additional sorting options may be available (by type of traveller, by score, etc...).

눉The hotel is not attached to the lake nor does it have views of the lake. There is a hotel bathing area a few minutes down the road. The bathing area did not have enough sun loungers to go round the 10 guests there and there is no toilet at the bathing area. There is no slippers or dressing gown in the room although they are advertised as included. The tioletries are very basic. The gentleman who owns the hotel and is the first person to greet you can be a little abrupt and was not overly helpful. Overall I'd say the hotel feels a little overpriced at 140 euros for a double room for a night, but was still a nice experience.
눇The Room is spacious and comfortable with a big sunny balcony. The bed and bedding is comfortable and the room is spotlessly clean. We liked the hotel bathing area near the lake and the pedallo was a bonus! The dinner and breakfast were fantastic!

눉There were a couple of small drawbacks to our room: 1) few and inconveniently located electrical outlets for recharging phones etc. 2) the bathroom fan didn't work and the shower door did not seal well.
눇This clean, generally well-maintained older property has a lovely garden and a private lake access within 300 m. Our room was large, recently refurbished, with a balcony and a comfortable bed. The food was really exceptional, especially in view of the price and unpretentious nature of the hotel and its surroundings. Holzöster is tiny and quiet, the lake charming and quite unspoiled, fine for bathing and fishing. There are many nice bike paths nearby. Ideal for a few days of r&r.

눇Our hotel in Salzburg was over booked even though we had reservation. We found this gem of a hotel late at night and they couldn't have been more hospitable. It was a wonderful setting and a great find when we needed a room quickly.

눉Customer service not very good. No one around most of the time. Asked for coffee to take medication and was told to use water from the bathroom or wait until breakfast at 7am. This was at 6 pm on arrival. By the description this was supposed to be on the lake which it was not and this was the reason I booked. There was no where to get any food either as the restaurant was closed that night and no other alternative offered.
눇Beautiful room. Comfortable beds. Very peaceful location

눉Nothing at all.
눇The couple that manage the hotel are superb, both in friendliness and service. We were very happy with the facilities: the room was great and included a balcony, the weather allowed for breakfast and dinner on the gorgeous terrace and the gardens were beautiful. Having a private beach only 300m away was quite a perk. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

눉It is a place for relax, seems not much activity around.
눇Family run hotel with welcoming English speaking owner. Spacious rooms,good balcony ,very clean, good internet connection. Great restaurant - seems popular among local people,very reasonable priced. I am vegan and a tasty vegan dish was prepared specially for me :) The hotel is 100 m from the lake ( although no view to the lake), 300 m from hotel's cute private beach and 500 m from city free beach with a nice cafe on the water. The water temperature is good for swimming (July). There is an inside pool and sauna, I haven't tried it.
