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.

Been trying to stay here for ages and finally found a time when it wasn’t full.
Checking was quick and my room was on the 2nd floor, really big with twin beds, 2 small arm chairs and a desk to work from.
Nice large flatscreen TV on the wall & mini bar (which was really noisy so got turned off).
Breakfast was a good choice from cereals, pastries, toast to fried, scrambled, boiled or poached eggs, omelettes, teas, coffees juice etc etc and plenty of it.
We had dinner one evening and a good selection of seasonal food to chose from at a reasonable price and very good quality.
Would recommend eating there if passing.
Would have been good if the dragon bar was open but as there was only 6 of us in the hotel I think they thought it was not worth it.
Very interesting to see what the hotel was like In ruins before being rebuilt to its current state and to see some of the history & artefacts around the hotel.
Would like to stay there again in the spring summer months so we could sit outside on the patios.

We looked forward to this experience. Communication prior the stay was very good and we appreciated the summary e-mail a few days prior check-in. The room was large enough, same with bathroom. Although we feel there was empty space in both, it did not feel too tiny. We were impressed how the ruins of castle were turned to the beautiful hotel. 45 minutes castle guide was enriching.
Spa was small (short pool, jacuzzi for max. 6 people, infra sauna for 2, Finnish one for max. 6) and only a few places to chill. However understandable due to place where it's located.
Lower restaurant was absolutely amazing. Grilled veal liver was absolutely amazing and definitely recommending. All the other meals were amazing too.
Breakfast was average, pancakes were good.
Dinner on 2nd day was solid, nothing exceptional unfortunately.
Regarding to the areas of improvement: eco tissues in the bathroom were great and the direction to use more ecological products is great. We though did not understand one-use plastic cups in wellness area :-(
Inconsistency of providing information: massage opening hours: we got 3 different answers within 5 seconds from 3 people at reception. When we checked in the room, we found out we got incorrect information. Also, Sphere club discount question: we asked whether it's applicable because we spotted Sphere magazine in the room. Firstly, we got the answer no. Then the receptionist said she will check. When we came back, we were told Sphere card is applicable and we appreciated that. During check-out, the discount was applied however the comment from the person who originally said Sphere discount is not applicable and then told me to put into the comment during the reservation was rather weird. Firstly, she is not aware and then I should have put into the comment during making reservation?
Overall, we enjoyed the stay, if a few things could be improved, it would have made even a bigger difference.

New hotel, opened Sept. 2014. Replica of the Viglas Castle (part of it was preserved but most of it completely rebuilt because the original castle was destroyed during WWII). Beautiful replicas of medieval paraphernalia on the hallways, in the restaurant and just about everywhere one can look. This is by far the most beautiful hotel I ever saw, and I saw them a few. The rooms are huge and spacious, as well as the bathroom and toilet. And did I say the hotel is super clean? Slovakia is said to have the cleanest hotels in Europe and this hotel is surely one to surpass anybody's expectations on this account. Free wifi in the rooms, free wellness, all inculsive restaurant. We had breakfast/supper included in the package, not all inclusive but despite that even the lemon flavoured water was served to dinner for free! I was expecting having to pay for the drinks and what a nice surprise. Guided tour around the castle was also included in the package price as well as a free entry for 1 day for 2 persons to spa Kovacova, located just 15 km away. Prices are very reasonable. Free guarded parking in front of the castle.

Unfortunately, we were not satisfied with this hotel, and we don´t recommend it at all. Services were really poor, and the food was horrible (there was a very small selection and dishes were disgusting and other guests were complaining about it too). Wellness is too small, and it should be renovated, as well as bathrooms in hotel rooms. The hotel doesn´t meet the quality standards of a 4-star hotel.

The Viglas is a folly of a vain rich man, it is a complete rebuild of historic ruins into the owners play house keeping nothing of value creating a mediocre hotel. It would have been better off left as ruins.

We did a tour and was only shown photographs of the owner and a modern building - the construction did not even try to restore the ruins or utilise traditional techniques to recreate the original.

I'm very conflicted about this review...and I think this is because the hotel is conflicted too. It's not clear what the hotel wants to be - a luxury mountain 5* retreat, or a castle-themed 4*. Currently they are falling between both and the conflict is clear. It must have cost a fortune to renovate this property from its former ruined state. In many respects no expense has been spared - the hotel is overall well restored, and the fixtures and fittings are high quality. However, sometimes some aspects are not quite right for a luxury hotel. Service is friendly, but a bit casual. Furniture is solid and comfortable, but sometimes seems out of place...not quite luxe, not quite romantic castle. Overall the hotel has too much 'castle kitsch' to pass muster as a serious luxury retreat - if you compare to the Kempinski High Tatras (which admittedly is almost 2x the price) both the overall feeling of luxury and service standards fall short. I would recommend the management to take a trip to the Kempinski to experience what a true luxury and top notch service feel like. I suspect they will learn a thing or two. For a decent 4* hotel would give them overall 4, but if they advertise themselves as "in the tradition of the finest hotels in the world" or "medieval architecture meets five-star elegance" then I have to go with overall 3 - an average. They have a long journey to go before matching their slogans on their websites.

Dear Zuzka, thank you for your visit and also for you review. Your opinion and recomendation are very valuable for us to improve our services. We are not trying to sell us as 5* stars hotel and we also do not want to compare with hotels, wich are part of world hotels group. We are trying to provide hotel in the castle and castle in the hotel what is sometime very complicated. But you are right that we have a long journey to go but we are doing our best. And I am sure that with our guest and their recomendations and remarks we can do our best. Thank you and have a nice day.

What a venue! We had our wedding at Viglas Castle, we were there for two days and everything was absolutely perfect! From the moment we arrived Hricova the wedding manager was there to greet us and assist with all the guests check-ins to the time we all had to leave, everything ran smoothly and all the staff were so very helpful and friendly.
Our honeymoon suite was beautiful and the staff did a great job making us feel special, and all our other guests were very happy with their rooms.
The wedding was absolutely perfect, we could not have asked for a better day, could not fault one thing but that food was outstanding!
Well worth travelling from Australia to stay there and we are already planning to stay next anniversary.

Thank you So much Hricova and the Viglas team!

Not far off of highway. There is parking at the castle. Staff at reception was friendly. Hotel is an old Middle Ages castle that was restored 2009-2013... really amazing! Rooms are spacious, bathrooms are ok. Not a lot of counter space for the ladies. Restaurant is tasty and Stanislaus is really friendly and fun!

Stayed only one night with a daughter but will definitely come back in the future.
What an amazing place when it comes to the sleeping beauty at castle, transformed into enjoyable hospitality Venue.Loved the Ambiance, location -nesting on the hill. Arrived at the night, received Great Welcome from the Parking Guard - mainly because I took the GM slot for a second just to find a free parking slot:-))) as you need a piece of experience with bigger car here. Very professional receptionist who notice the name of our daughter and used it actively. Great Job. Room was in excellent conditions, it can easily go wrong with furniture at castle style hotel but here was all perfect: very functioning, nice decor, warm noble style. Well stocked minibar with reasonable prices, though too noisy during the night. Room was perfect size-wise and layout-wise, very clean. I found the beds - we stayed in twin room - too narrow and too soft for an adult. Bathroom was clean but lacked the quality and standard in design of the Room, maybe because the Room was more than 4* and the bathroom was just 3*- 4* and this created the difference in quality view.To find a hair tie among the Bathroom amenities was nice. Liked small details like the trashbin placed behind the main door not close to your bed or shoe cabinet in the corridor. All the fabrics used were in top quality and design. Good noise proof windows as there was a party outside. Breakfast was good, there were many Guests staying that night, so there was choice, variety, nice home made items like Vianocka, traditional Slovak Mayo salads or black pudding. The only missing point was the service or good morning welcome or something. The Breakfast was grab, sit and go style.
This place and this hotel in particular have a lot to admire and enjoy so we will definitely come back in the future for a longer stay.

Nicely reconstructed castle turned into luxury hotel. I heard that also historicians appreciate the way how the reconstrucion was done. There were very few guests during our visit, so we coud enjoy the simming pool and jacuzzi just for ourselves. Extraordinary hand painted decorations on the ceilings in restaurant. They offer free tours through the castle at 11:00, 13:00 and 15:00 but unforunatelly we missed it. Next time I will be nearby I will surely visit just to see the exhibition. I recommend using 4x4 car during winter season, we had some difficulties to climb the narrow ice covered road leading to the castle. There is not much to do in the night. After 22:00 the spa is closed and only bar is opened. Nice quiet and clean place, but a little bit overpriced considering the area where it is located. Overall, if you are looking for quiet place to relax and want to enjoy the castle just for yourself, this is the right place
