I spent 2 nights in this amazing hotel. It is a real castle which has been converted into a stylish hotel while keeping its historical design and magic. Single rooms are very small. Check-in was fast. Breakfast buffet was super tasty. I will definitely come back to this hotel.

Dear Mr. Victors_10! Thank you very much for your comment and compliment. It is an honour that you mention us as a "amazing hotel”. For our staff it is self-explanatory to focus on a very high service level. Our house is well known for its friendliness. We wish you will be returning to us whenever you visit Murtal again. Your...

The couple of kilometres leading up to Schloss Gabelhofen are rather unprepossessing, as you circle an industrial estate, but once you get nearer you realise what a fine building this is. The public areas are very grand (and possibly slightly intimidating), but the staff were extremely welcoming. Our room was enormous and well equipped, but I can imagine that the...

are you taller than180cm-watchout in some rooms, as the old castle was modified into a nice boutique hotel. unfortunatelly due to thickwalls, the door-frames are only 170cm.. the castle was really nicely upgraded, where in earlier days poor people were housing, today yeverybody can sleep from € 85,0 per room/night upwards. Service personal and cuisine are good - the buffet...

As I was attending a training in Spielberg, this hotel seemed like a good choice as it was only 10 driving minutes away from the Spielberg-Ring. We reserved a deluxe room, and as the hotel wasn't too full the girl at the reception managed to organise the wedding suite for us after we asked to see it! (the price for...

The hotel is in a converted castle and it is immaculate. From the parking lot you walk across a permanent bridge through the outer walls and into the hotel proper. Most rooms are in this inner building or keep, but there are rooms in the guard towers and over the wall gate. The room was on the small side, but...

The Schloss is a castle conversion-so don't expect uniformity in rooms. I'm sure each has its own quirks. Mine was a shower/bath with limited headroom. However this doesn't detract from excellent service, comfortable rooms, good value meals & a small but well stocked bar. There's not much in the way of amenities within a short walk. But this is a...

our favourite place. Every time a great experiance. Friendy staff, fantastic rooms and the atmosphere could not be better. Even your private parking spot is reserved. If you can handle all the food you really should try their gourmet meals, a taste and display extravaganza. We definately will be back there, hopefully soon.

How often do you get a chance to stay in a Castle? This place is so neat. They did a great job keeping the integrity of the Castle feel. Whoever had the vision was very talented in my eyes. The grounds are very nice, but what more can you expect you are in Austria. What a beautiful country. The hotel...

I have stayed at Gabelhoffen many times and while rooms are very clean and modern it does not lose the sense of being a castle. GM of the hotel really is a master of Austrian wines and enjoys cellar visits. It is must to visit the wine cellar. Breakfast is very good and I especially enjoy all the fresh or...
