It is a very beautiful Hotel in every aspect. The building, surrounding garden, interior public areas and the rooms. Attention is given to every small detail, and the result is fantastic. The rooms are huge, comfortable and very atmospheric. The restaurant is excellent. Overall we had a very enjoyable experience and it deserves a 5 stars rating. However, it lacks... More

This was our second visit on this place and we were once again very satisfied. When staying in the hotel you can literally feel the history. It is really charming and we felt very relaxing there. The whole complex is still under reconstruction and this can be sometimes (together with the near road) a little disturbing. On the other had,... More

A beautiful and unique hotel with plenty of character. The location is great to explore the surrounding area. We stayed 4 nights for a wedding and the setting and food were fantastic. However, the hotel has a very small staff who found it very difficult to cope with a group for breakfast and dinner. There was a common problem of... More

We have visited the castle for a getaway weekend together with my lovely wife and enjoyed it very much. As the castle is located in the heart of Liptov there is plenty to do, visiting the High or Low Tatras, going for a boat ride on the huge Liptovska Mara lake, visiting one of the great caves or just hanging...

What a beautiful setting, taken care of lovingly and delicately to the last detail. The photos do not do it justice, you feel like you want to take off and discover past moments of the castles history. Beautiful rooms and wonderful staff, so many nooks and crannies to find, absolutely wonderful We had lunch with 2 friends, WOW, not what... More

A true 17th century castle changed into a luxurious hotel, one of its kind !!! The rooms as well as other spaces are furnished with taste, exclusively by antiques. Historical pieces of high value and a mysterious atmosphere of the past times give an unforgettable experience. Love to details, huge effort and the never stopping will of the private owner,...

We didn't stay here but did visit one evening for food and drinks. This is not the place for a romantic couple as when we visited they only had large tables for 6 or more, which made sitting near awkward. If you are still eating your main course after 9pm, be prepared to be refused desert. We were not the... More

The hotel is very charming and pleasant. The rooms are extrordinary. One would expect the same from the hotel restaurant and wine cellar. The restaurant did not really go on par with the rest. Save for the overal genius loci, there are better places to eat in the region.

We only stayed here for one night which was unfortunate but were given a guided tour by the owner. Definitely want to return to take full advantage of all facilities. Rooms are all individual and designed to highestquality. Had meal here and was very good and reasonably priced considering it's location. Ownerand staff incredibly helpful.
