This delightful hotel was once the local abbey's grape-gathering center for the famous wines produced here, and retains the historic flavor and gracious charm while updating the rooms to a high standard. The grounds are almost magically lovely and peaceful: vines bookended with rose bushes, apricot and pear and walnut trees set in a parklike setting. Our rooms were spotless, quiet, and comfortable, overlooking the garden in one case and with a glimpse of the Danube from the other. In the same family for some seven generations, this inn is impeccably run with friendly and helpful staff. (Plus house-made preserves and eggs cooked to order at breakfast!) Great location in a lovely town.

I have passed your kind words to all the team who are indeed very grateful and we do hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back on a future visit to the Wachau!

A stone's throw from the banks of the Danube and with a backdrop of steep hilly vineyards, a long gravel drive leads past fruit trees and the garden to the 500-year-old Barock Landhof Burkhardt. The house is beautifully restored inside, with every comfort and Gisela and Michael Burkhardt and their team make you feel very welcome.
Our room was very spacious, beautifully decorated and the bed was huge and very comfortable. We had a good sized shower room and separate toilet, with toiletries, hairdryer, magnifying mirror, slippers etc. provided. Armchairs, a TV and good wifi, flower boxes on the windowsills and an antique crystal chandelier added to the charm.
Breakfast is excellent with abundant meats, cheeses, breads, pastries, cereals, yoghurts, eggs cooked to order and jams made by Gisela from garden fruits. During the day you can help yourself to coffee, teas and fruit and there's a selection of wine for guests to serve themselves.
Michael and Gisela are experts on the local area (the house has been in Michael's family for 7 generations) and they can tell you all you need to know on getting around, what to see, where to eat, wineries etc.
The whole house is beautifully maintained and spotlessly clean, and it feels as if no-one has ever used your room before.
Truly a one-of-a-kind experience and we look forward to returning to see the house at different times of the year. There was a huge cherry tree outside one of our windows that must be seen in the spring!

This feels like your own private residence and the team at this boutique hotel is welcoming and caring. The rooms are spacious, light filled and tastefully furnished with every comfort. Its a quiet location and the comfy bed warrants a good sleep. The view to the steep vineyards and there own little park was more than pleasant. A great place to stay and explore the beautiful Wachau.

We travelled through Austria, visiting Innsbruck, Salzburg, Vienna.
Between Salzburg and Vienna we found a romantic, family owned, little Barockhotel.
Excellent 6* service and greatly renovated rooms in calm location at the edge of the Donau river. Lot of tours are organized by the owner who serves excellent vines and self made spirits.
Never met before so good hospitality. Rooms were clean, amazing breakfast buffet (try the self made Marillen Marmelade), fantastic view, spacious garden with old trees to relax in the shadow and comfortable lounge terrace.
Not expected were little things such as Eco power to load e.g your car free of charge.
All in all expectations were overachieved to large extent and we'll book again for next year.

I stayed here for 2 nights with my wife and 1.5 year old daughter. This is a family run B&B with lots of character. The place is huge...with a huge garden..and a vineyard. The driveway feels like one is entering a grand home. The rooms n property is maintained extremely nicely...very clean n beautiful. The rooms have a kitchenette, TV area and then the bed room. The rooms have a beautiful view. The hotel is 5 min walk from the bus stop- we d reached there by bus from melk. In fact, we d come from vienna- with 2 train changes to melk and then a bus ride from melk to Spitz bus stop. It took us nearly 2 hours for this whole journey from Vienna haubtbahnof. The ticket for the entire journey cost around EUR 20per person, which was very reasonable and is available at Vienna train stn.

Coming back to property- friendly staff. Really cozy property. Beautiful terrace breakfast area with lovely hot chocolate! They give a key to room n main gates so one can leave n enter as n when one wants. The other common areas have a piano, beautiful pictures hanging on walls, ..one feels like living a royal life. The garden has lots of Apple n apricot trees and we had those fruits which was great!

The owners guides us to a nice day tour to Krems with a winzer Krems vineyard tour, bus timings, mall at Krems, costs etc. They were very helpful n thorough. The bus drive to melk took us through a very scenic route n took less than an hour.
Spitz is really small place. The restaurants outside the hotel shut by 9pm latest. Good pizzas available in the nearby restaurants. There is a small shop at a petrol stn nearby which has some general items like chocolates, cookies etc. The Danube river is a 2 min walk from the hotel n has some amazing views n cycling n walking areas. Spitz is a very small village to relax n enjoy nature. Must stay at this hotel to enjoy greenery n peace. The area around has a some beautiful small shops n a cathedral.

Dear Nirmesh P,

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a comprehensive feedback on our historic hotel and orchard following your stay with us! I am delighted that you feel that the hotel is class, that you enjoyed the location and that the service was attentative. I have passed your lovely comments to our staff.

I am also pleased that you enjoyed your room and found our suggestions useful to discover some of the Wachau highlights. We were amazed that you travelled to your excursions within the Wachau valley with public transportation only. We think that's phantastic, considering that you have travelled to Austria for the first time.

I hope that your journey back home to India  was safe and pleasant.

We do hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back on a future visit.
Warm regards,

family Burkhardt
