The hostess is charming and very helpful. The castle itself has warm looking interiors and is located at the north end of the picturesque lake Zell Am. The hotel has its own private "beach" house, stocked with beer, towels, shower facilities etc. for a quite day/evening by the lake. The famous restaurant is obviously very expensive. The included breakfast is...

We booked a "family suite" and were amazed to have three bedrooms, two huge sitting rooms and three bathrooms. The antique furnishings and hunting trophies gave it incredible atmosphere. We did not get to try the restaurant, as we only stayed one night and the restaurant was closed. It was a great stay.

We returned with the future mother-in-laws just before Christmas in 2008 and they too duly fell...

Schloss Prielau is an amazing hotel--with all amenities of a four-star hotel plus the feel of a family-run guest house, where guests are not only...

Our "room" was an enormous suite of 3 rooms and a beautiful, spotless bathroom. Everything was impeccable -- the decor, breakfast, etc. There is no elevator.

This building was supposedly a hunting lodge for the Bishop of Salzburg. The interior still has a 17th century feel, with low doorways and original dark wood panelling. (See attached photo.) The rooms are off a common area on each floor and while each room has its own modern bathroom, some of them are across the common area. The beds...
