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...

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,... More

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.

We got married here! We couldnt have chosen a better place. The food was great and the staff went out of their way to make our day/night special. They stayed up until morning to serve drinks and were up first thing to prepare breakfast and check guests out. And it was exceptional value for money, too. A very very special... More
