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...

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.

When we arrived at the hotel we were friendly greeted and immediately taken to our suite. The hotel has seven double rooms, two suites, and an apartment. All rooms are furnished differently but contain the same style through the hotel. We stayed at the 115 m2 suite called Gerti von Hofmannsthal. The suite was very spacious with two bedrooms, a...

My husband and I got married here. We fell in love with Schloss Prielau not only for the spectacular buildings, gardens and private beach on Lake Zell (absolutely breath taking) but also for the ambiance of Prielau - it is hard to describe but we all felt so welcomed abd comfortable. It felt like home which can be hard to...

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.

This is a beautiful retreat at the north end of the lake. It has a private swimming area on the lake 3 mins walk from the hotel. The room was magnificent, clean and with a stunning view of the mountains. Staff were very friendly, it has the air of a family run hotel and not a bland multinational corporate. If...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Schloss Prielau is located in idyllic grounds, just 200 metres from the north shore of Lake Zell. The former residence of writer Hugo von Hofmannsthal’s family was first documented in 1425. Since 1980, Schloss Prielau has been owned by the Porsche family, who converted it into a country hotel for lovers of the Austrian hospitality and cuisine. Anette and Andreas Mayer have been your hosts since 2004 and spoil hotel guests and visitors to MAYER’s gourmet restaurant with plenty of love and personal care. They have seven double rooms, two suites and an apartment in the fishing lodge available. The rooms are furnished in a rural style yet possess all the comfort of an international four-star hotel. Fires and tiled stoves create plenty of opportunity to snuggle up in a romantic atmosphere. Delicious breakfasts are served in the cosy castle kitchen, where you can also while away the lunchtime and the afternoon. On the terrace, with its view of the castle grounds, you can enjoy the sun and the tranquillity while you watch the on-site deer. In the rustic bathhouse you can relax with a visit to the sauna and steam bath or treat yourself to a massage. Thanks to the unique surroundings and dreamlike location, Schloss Prielau is the perfect venue for your wedding or family celebration for up to 300 people. We look forward seeing you! ... more   less
