I arrived by train into Obertraun and enjoyed the 10 minutes walk to the hotel. I received a very
friendly welcome - my bag was carried to the room. The room was simply furnished - there was no
T.V. to disturb the peace. My balcony looked over snow-capped mountains. An incredible view. It was just

"Spectacular hotel - you will not be disappointed"
This hotel is 5 star quality. We booked one of the junior suites and it was fantastic. The location is right in the middle of St Wolfgang near to the village amenities. It is right on the lake and the views are amazing. Everything about the hotel was excellent - the room, the food and the service. For the price is was very good value for money. I would highly recommend it. Treat yourself to a suite for the small extra it costs - you will love it. Jacuzzi bath, walk in shower (ours had a window overlooking the lake), ipod, dvd player and loads of dvds to borrow, lovely seating area, trendy decor and a balcony. The hotel allows smoking in the bar and there is also a cigar lounge. What more can I say - first class!!
The Schloss is on the edge of the lake, in which you can swim from its decking 'beach'. We walked around the lake in a few hours, stopping half way at the little town of Fuschl Am See on the other side of the lake. The surrounding scenery is second to none - spectacular. The hotel is luxuriously comfortable and spotlessly clean. The staff are polite and courteous and really seem to want to do their very best for their clients. This is an expensive place to stay but worth every penny as you come away feeling as though you have had a totally relaxing experience.
I stayed here for 1 night while visiting Hallstatt early in October 2014. I have nothing but good things to say about my experience. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The place is immaculate, cozy, clean and very well kept. I arrived earlier than their regular check-in time but they checked me in nonetheless. It's also a cute little town - away from the noise and fuss of a busy city but yet well within a vicinity from the tourist attractions (20 min from Hallstatt and less than an hour from Salzburg).
I booked a room for 1 for 2 nights but ended up needing a room for 2 for 4 nights. The staff was so accommodating and made it work for us. In particular, the girl who checked us in was so amazingly helpful. The biggest draw back for us was that the wi-fi for the hotel didn't even come close to reaching our room, and this is a very small hotel. For us to use the wifi we needed to leave the room and go stand in the reception area. That aside, it was a very homey little hotel that made a great location to slip away from the world for a few amazing days. Don't miss the local pizza/bowling place and the restaurant in the adjacent hotel. At first we were a little disappointed we couldn't find a hotel in Hallstatt, but in retrospect, we really rather enjoyed being distanced from the crowds in a quiet little remote beautiful area with 2 great restaurants nearby.
Our hotel is on the sunny side of the Hallstatt lake, amazingly quiet, but a few minutes from the bus stop and the train …More
