Stayed here for 3 days in a standard room which was ok but very very basic. The toiletries were minimal. Having just come from the Hotel Sacher in Salzburg it was a bit of a disappointment. However, I do understand we were in a completely different area of Austria with different types of accommodation although pricing for the two hotels... More

We stayed here for just 1 night on the day of our wedding. It was a perfect location with a lovely room which was delightful. The castle is full of character and history which together with lovely staff made this a perfect stay for us. Highly recommended for a stay summer or winter.

Schloss Prielau is beautifully situated not far from the lake with a great view of the mountains. I enjoyed the quietness and romantic setting. While the hotel offers today's amenities you can easily picture what life must have been like a couple of hundred years ago.
