This is for sure the best place to stay and to eat at Donovaly. You can select from local dishes, some specials and steaks. The hotel has nice rooms, but the highlight is the spa on the top floor with a great view. Fried cheese on the pic - a local must have Slovak specialty.

They left us waiting to check in over an hour without any proper answer when the room will be ready. There was noone else at the reception waiting to check in only us. Receptionist's customer service should improved a lot Temperature in the room was too hot, slept with windows open and in underwear. The heaters were completely switched off and cold to touch and the receptionist again showed her professionals by telling us to close the heater and open the window...not mentioning that we had 5year old kid in the room and sleeping with windows open in winter is ridiculous! The jacuzzi was allowed to enter only nude ( so advertised as family hotel you can imagine your parents/grandparents/kids sitting all naked in Jacuzzi surrounded with big glass windows and people walking by

Dear Ms. Martina, we would like to respond to your complaint. We feel very sorry about your negative experience. However there are some inconsistencies in the review you posted. Probably you're writing for someone from your family, as any guest with your name was not staying in our hotel. Check in is possible after 2pm. Guests are informed about the time of check in while booking the stay. If the hotel occupancy permits we gladly provide a room to our guests earlier. But in this case it was not possible due to the workload of the hotel during the holiday of Bratislava region. Our wellness center is intended primarily for rest and relaxation of our guests. The wellness center follows the rules of healthy sauna bath, therefore entry to hotel spa is allowed only without swimsuit. Guests in the spa do not have to be naked. Receptionist automatically provide every guest with sheet and towel. We inform about the ban on wearing swimsuit on our web page. Entry of children until 7 years is forbidden. Guest receive the information about restrictions on admission of children when booking the stay with child. Big glass windows provide guests with a beautiful view of the panorama of Donovaly. Since wellness is located on the top floor of the hotel - on the third floor, it is not possible to see into the spa from outside. We have very possitive feedback on the staff of our hotel, so we are very caught off guard with your complaint about the reluctance of receptionist. Anyway, we would like to apologize and assure you, that we will discuss your complaint with the receptionist. We are specially proud of the quality of our restaurant. Many guests return to our hotel also thanks to our excellent cuisine and professional staff in the restaurant. Therefore, we are very sorry about your negative impression. In case like this, the best solution is to discuss your complaint on the spot directly with the director or the manager of the hotel who can immediately to resolve the complaint to your satisfaction. We are sorry that your stay did not meet your expectations.

One of the most amazing hotel wellnesses....did not expect that. Super calm, not busy, service is perfect and the saunas are still barely used. Low price and non-hotel guests are also welcome. Open till 10pm which is very comfy after ski.

We stayed in this hotel out of season however it gave us the feel that the hotel was still buzing. Great were excellent Great car park under the hotel. Only thing I would warn people that the amazing spars and fitness centre on top floor, you have to be TOTALLY NAKED to use :) A bit shocked at first but soon got used to it.
