"Cabana Motilor" is a pearl in the midst of one of the most wonderful landscapes of Romania. I will be tight with my words - go and see it for yourselves! No wonder HRH The Prince of Wales loves Transylvania!

My best friend got married there a few weeks ago. They rented the whole place out for the wedding party and guests. Not only was the food the most incredible food I have ever had, it was authentic and I am still craving it now. The owner Sebastian was wonderful. He turned off all the lights for us at night...

I visited Cabana Motilor on an earlier trip to Romania and loved it so much that I decided to have my wedding there. Let me first say that I am a very low key bride (don't get married here if you are not), but Sebastian and the staff of Cabana Motilor gave not only my groom and I, but all... More

I ate there and appreciated the nice, rustic decor. The menu is rather limited. The taste of Apuseni was excellent. Mushroom soup was good. I had the sarmale (good) and the rest of my group had the chicken with potatoes - also a good choice. Great rustic experience. They also sell honey with nuts and many homemade jams.

I was another of the 40 people mentioned in the review by Susie T, and I couldn't agree more about the fairy tale quality of this place. Wonderful food, great palinca, a wagon ride around the village and dancing near a bonfire. It doesn't get much better. The proprietor was also extremely friendly and did everything possible to see that... More

We went to Cabana Motilor in June of 2014 with about 40 other people, to have dinner, and experience the folk dance, music, and traditional crafts. The hospitality was exceptional. They cooked dinner outside over an open fire and it was delicious. We were seated indoors in a large dining room. It was one of my favorite meals from our... More

Last week end I was to guesthouse "Cabana Motilor", located at 1250 meteres altitude in Apuseni Mountains, village of Marisel ( Romania, province of Cluj ). The location of this guesthouse is execelent, having an outstanding panorama to the valleys and to the mountains around this place. Because this guesthouse was fully booked, we stay in a chalet located across... More

Sebastian is a great host. Good palinca and tasty food. We had such a good time and will definitely return. It's our weekend destination for the weekend for over a year now. Should try the siroups as well.

Our weekend at Cabana Motilor was total relaxation, just what we needed! I knew about the beautiful countryside in Marisel, but I had no idea that this establishment could prove so in touch with everything surrounding it.The food was the best I've ever tasted, I think actually gained a little weight...And the syrup was exactly how my great aunt and...
