Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great historical property. Rooms are huge and decorated in the medieval style. There is big park in which chateau are located, you can walk through. There is small swimming pool to. Breakfast is great. You can explore common rooms, there are nice decorated. You can sit there, read a book or take a coffe. Only one disappointment is restaurant. Not only expensive, but lack of atmosphere or appropriate dining. But their local wines are great (albeit very expensive = 10e for one glass of wine)

What a wonderful place - it works from many perspectives from hanging with a group of friends, family holiday or (I could imagine!) a romantic getaway. Our host, one of the family members, went to great lengths to ensure we had a fabulous time - a tour of the story-rich property and the grounds was quite a highlight. Delicious food, attentive/friendly service and overall comfort worked really well. I will return!

The building is really interesting inside, worth to see it.
We was only at the restaurant and drink coffee, because they have no food, nor desserts (we want try some dessert and coffee). The coffee was fine, but nothing extra and my milk was really interesting inside - like sour cream.
The staff was beautiful.

I have never reviewed a place 1 star and I am shocked by the positive reviews this hotel has, that and the photos were the reasons I stayed here a few months ago with my boyfriend, we payed a lot for the best room and expensive package as it was a very special occasion. The male receptionist was extremely rude to us, it was embarrassing and any time we asked for anything he would not help or was so unhelpful to the point we did not want to ask again. Even when we arrived 30minutes before our check in time, the female receptionist just stated your check in time is not for 30minutes and did not even check if the room was ready and did not understand why we were there yet. I asked could we take a seat and wait and she said ok but didn't even tell us when the room was ready, we had to go back up and ask despite no one else being around so she was not busy and then gave no offer to show us up to our room or help with bags, she just handed us the key saying yes it is ready now. We later asked the male receptionist where the included afternoon tea as part of our package was and he looked at us so confused and said in the bar quite rudely. We went in to the bar and the barman was very nice so we ordered the tea, he seemed confused and after we were billed for it, apparently it was in the restaurant, not bar. Most of the amenities we looked forward to using were not available- you had to pay he told us if we wanted to use the snooker table, he could not get the indoor cinema to work, the outdoor pool was closed as it was out of season which was fine but the indoor one was not even warm and the gym had 2 archaic things in it so we didn't even bother use them despite having not much to do, the sauna was not on and the bath water was brown due to the water in the well so not appealing. There is no room service and the place was quite dusty. The room was very big and the dining room quite pretty, the grounds were nice to walk around so there was some positives but honestly overall, I really regretted spending the money to come here and not go somewhere else and felt quite maltreated and embarrassed and my boyfriend felt the same and we are not normally picky customers so I don't understand how so many people had such positive reviews...

Yes, it’s a beautiful building, but its star rating is way off the mark.

Positives:
Lovely, old building in attractive grounds.

Negatives:

In the middle of nowhere with only a small co-op supermarket near by.
Food was below average, at best. Expensive.
No room service.
No tea/coffee making facilities in rooms. You have to pay for every cup of tea/coffee you want.
If you don’t have a walk in shower in your room, taking a shower in the bath is lethal. No anti slip mats and steep step into bath.
If you want to play pool you have to hire the room by the hour.
Spa treatments very limited.
Bar area smells stale and of smoke, all the time.

In short, spend your hard-earned cash somewhere where everything is much better than this. It isn’t value for money. At all.

My fiancee and I plan to book Chateau Bela for wedding in August 2022 and she initiated contact with the events manager Katarína Dubecová last week to enquire on the package and pricing. She specifically told her that she wants the book the bigger Orangerie Hall even though we have only around 40 guests. She gave her all the pricing but she said she would need to check on the availability of the Orangerie Hall. During the last two days, my fiancee sent her a WhatsApp message again to ask if she has checked but she did not reply. So, I decided to write to the GM, Jürgen Gruber instead this morning to ask if the date was available since she did not reply. She called my fiancee suddenly today to scold her over the email sent. She threatened her and said you will never have a wedding here. She was extremely rude merely because an email was sent to the GM. Worst still, the GM never apologised or replied to my email and instead, Katarina saw the message I sent to the GM which she screenshot and claimed that 'we are very good team together'. We were shocked over how rude she is and we do not advise anyone to organise any wedding there as we believe the standard has dropped so much since COVID-19. We feel sorry for the owner, Ilona Von Krockow who decided to leave such a beautiful chateau to an incompetent team.

amazing, big, romantic Chateau with great history. Perfect place to rest.
But... very low SPA possibilities, no personal touch, no services, just cold...
Good service is only in restaurant.
We overnight most time at Chateau, but here is most cold place ever.

I don't have the patience to elaborate on all that is wrong with this place, but in a nutshell.

There is no tea and coffee making facilities, was offered hot water for a fee.
They will not allow you to have an ironing board in your room.
The bathroom shower leaked heavily to the room below, the solution we were told we were not allowed to use our shower.
There was no safe in the room (room 31) despite the website saying there is an in room safe.
The guy at reception was outwardly helpful, but was unable to satiate any of the issues we had.
The rest of the staff were generally rude / ignorant, particularly the restaurant staff.
The restaurant closes too early (9:30pm) considering there are no alternatives anywhere near by (hotel is pretty much in the middle of nowhere)
The breakfast buffet was very good, variety not great but quality / freshness was good.
What hotel can call themselves 5 Star if they don't offer room service? This one apparently.
The public areas and grounds are amazingly beautiful.
No wifi anywhere. There claims to be wifi in the public areas, this was simply not true. Didn't help by not being able to get 3G phone reception.
