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.

When we first visited Schloss Prielau in Feb 2008 for a long weekend, we fell in love with this romantic boutique hotel from the moment we set foot in it, and before we left, we had booked it as the location for our wedding. We returned with the future mother-in-laws just before Christmas in 2008 and they too duly fell...

Since I am an academic in literature I was delighted to find a fabulous getaway for a four-day skiing trip in the Austrian Alps that was owned by the playwright and poet Hugo von Hofmannsthal. 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...

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...

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
