Really cool place to stay!

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 May 2019via mobile
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!

Beautiful rooms, hallways and Saunas. The breakfast was also yummy. Beautiful historical area with walking trails and nearby sites. With the weather we were just missing a treadmill and elliptical. Free parking on site. Definitely ask for a tour to see the chapel area of the castle. An amazing venue for a ball or wedding, and other events. The use of space is amazing.

The hotel is situated in old historical castle renovated just few years ago.
It has few interesting features, nice decorations, and wall paintings, very nice two restaurant in the old knightly style.
the wellness and the pool is in the underground, which is interesting, however it is quit small, without special place for kids.
Food was also nice, buffets with various possibilities and tasty menu with specialties.

Hotel geared towards incentive trips organised by companies. The building itself is nice and it has some lovely historical details (the architecture is interesting), but the bedroom was bland (looked like a Premier Inn hotel room). On the positive it was quiet in the night and you could therefore sleep well.
Nice swimming pool (with a swimming machine) about 10m long and a nice sauna.
Average food at dinner, average service. The breakfast/dinner room could be nice (vaulted ceiling), but it is decorated in a gaudy style and has no windows (ie no sunlight).
The hotel is difficult to find (SATNAVs don't know it and there are no directions on the road) - it is hidden away and even when you are close to it there are no signs on the hotel itself.
Not worth the price and it is away from everything so that you have no choice but eat there at night (and the food is not great).

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.

We visited this hotel - former castle - in august. We asked for a room with a baldachin bed as our granddaughter is a small Princess... The room was quiet, big, clean ,the bed met the expectations... the bathroom large, all very comfortable. The room was situated in a side building - which was ok as the weather was fine, but in case of rain or snow it would be a disadvantage, as the dining hall, restaurant, wellness and reception are in the main one. We did not mind but it is good to know that accommodation in main building has more advantages.
Food in the dining hall - we had half board - was good, tasty, enough for all the guests, but no frill. Food in restaurant was worse, do not order pasta filled with fruit as we had it and it was filled with jam and topped with fresh apricots... Not good. The worse thing was that the cutlery prepared on the table was dirty after previous guests - evidently kept there for a long time without attention ... But they make good coffee.
Staff - very friendly and forthcoming. Ladies at the reception all time in good mood and very nice, staff in dining hall the same. Our granddaughter had birhday during our stay - we asked for a nice table and we got it - with candles, shining glasses as decorations and also with happy birthday congratulations. Thank the staff for this.
The castle is after reconstruction a stunning place to get back to history - of coarse not literally - but with a bit of fantasy you find yourself in a different world.

Room tip: main building is better as you have all amenities there
