We came from Hungary and it'd been for quite a few months that we wished to visit this castle. Finally, the day came and we were not disappointed at all!!! The castle is located in an absolutely unique location that dominates the area with fantastic views. The buildings have been restored to their historic, authentic state with a lot of care to the tiniest details. The staff is highly professional, skillful, helpful and kind. The facilities, comfort and food are first class. We very much enjoyed the spa area with the children. Congratulations and thanks for everything - we'll certainly return!

My parents went there for 3 nights. They were pleased by every detail
- rooms were very nice, quiet and clean. cleaning service did their job very well
- food was extraordinary, very wide variety of foods, also local ones, rich breakfast
- staff was professional; e.g. when passing reception, receptionist stood up to greet always; waiters were amazing
- special thanks to masseur (who had plait), his neck and back massage was superb
- pool was clean, surroundings were nice as well

we enjoyed our stay here , especially the welness . we did the buffet restaurant two evenings which was Ok , but not a lot of choice. Sufficiant.... There was a wedding going on and therefor i think They forgot to clean the room . A little minus for that . Also the bed is a bit knirky...... we feel fine . Its worth a stay ! Visit Banska Bystrica in the area...

Room tip: Go for the luxury, your in a castle.....

Stayed here for 1 night. I wasnt very happy from the parkig place, cause I had to take the luggage for a while on paving, not to ruin my wheels. The receptionist was very nice and helpful. The way to the room took me a while cause I had to walk all around the castle. The room was nice and clean. The view from it was very nice. The bed was nice with touch of a castle history bud the mattress was very soft. There was a aircondition but it was bit loud to have it on while night. The hotel is really big with amazing paintings on the walls and also in the Breakfast restaurant Anjou. There is a wellness but I came late so I didnt try it. Had dinner in a la carte restaurant, but I had to eat it only inside even though it was warm evening, cause there where only small tables outside. The schnitzel wasnt very good. The breakfast starts at 7:30, that was late for me but I forget to ask for a earlier breakfast at the reception. Even thougt it was 7:30 the breakfast wasnt ready and the waitresses were still preparing it. The breakfast wasnt good to, it missed taste, was really hungry after it cause I couldnt eat it. If they will work on food more it really be a great hotel.

The Castle isn't too visible from the town or main road but GPS showed us right where to go. The hotel is very nice. Rooms were clean, big and medieval themed. Spa was a great addition - we went to the pool and jacuzzi. We also used the sauna and got massages. Pretty reasonable prices compared to the US. Fun stay. Food is okay but not amazing. Very peaceful and quiet. I'd definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a castle experience with some spa accommodations.
