I stayed here and we had the entire castle to ourselves. The staff, food, drinks, etc... are the best and I have never felt freedom on vacation like I did while I stayed here. This is a definate place to stay if you are in or near Zell am See.

We stayed here for our honeymoon and couldn't have asked for more. We were upgraded to a beautiful room with the best views. The room had lovely wooden beam features and was always warm and cosy. The spa was great after a hard day snowboarding and we had it to ourselves the whole time, which is good as it is...

If you are going to be in the area, you simply must stay here at least for one night! All rooms and public areas are authentically decorated in an ironic luxurious but medieval style, making for a unique and not-to-be-missed experience! Since it was a slow weekend, we were upgraded to the Gerti von Hofannsthal suite (although we booked a...

What does the Schloss Hotel Prielau in Zell am See need? Service. We arrived a little late for our reserved stay at the Prielau. We had communicated by email with the staff a few weeks in advance, and booked the Gerti von Hoffmansthal Suite for three people. We arrived just before 10 to find the hotel was wide open, but...

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in July 2011. Driving up the lake passing the over developed tourism infrastructure of Zell am See, I was a little worried, but as soon as we reached Schloss Prielau, I was immensely relieved. The place is wonderful. The grounds are gorgeous, relaxing, and designed in such a way as to...

Our son and his wife chose Schloss for their Austrian wedding. It was superb in a wonderful setting. The Schloss is beautiful and traditionally Austrian. The interior is tasteful, conbining modern facilities with lovely antique furnishings. The setting is alongside the beautiful lake in the Austrian alps, close to Zel Am See, which is about a 20+ minute walk round...

Visiting Schloss Prielau is like going back in time. Lots of charm and tasteful decoration, still the small touches that makes some places unique. Of course the lovely little schloss has all kind of modern fittings , but it still smells of charm and genuine hospitality. Like a long loved teddybear. Excellent accommodation, a luxurious breakfast with multiple choices and...

A beautiful, small castle with a great atmosphere and very nice rooms. We went there to stay for one night in October after we had dinner at the restaurant right next door, run by the hotel owner's husband, Andreas Mayer. It's a 2-Michelin-Star Restaurant with the most amazing food!!! We'll go there again, any time

To spend a quiet, relaxing, wonderful stay in a beautiful area of Austria, Schloss Prielau is perfect. The location was ideal for our needs.

Great hotel in Zell Am See. We were given a fantasic room since with great view of the alps and the lake. Good mix of new amenites with the charm of a 500 yr old castle. Close to town and lake but very secluded. The owner Annette was fantasic, provided us great ways to see the area and a great...
