We had the pleasure of staying with Sebastian and his staff at the end of June. He is generous with his time and information, making us feel at home and giving us ideas for fun walks and exploring. The house is attractive and spacious with wonderful home-made foods. Our four children loved the entire place: the rooms, the light and... More

The politeness and friendliness of the staff at Cabana Motilor and of the local villagers was astonishing.The traditional Romanian food is delightful, rooms are quiet,cosy and... More

Cabana Motilor is one of my favorite places in Transylvania. I have visited Cabana Motilor several times since its opening back in 2009 or 2010. Cabana Motilor is located on a plateau on the Gilau Mountains. The scenary is wonderful while the road is "wild" although in good condition. Food is according to local recipes and very, very tasteful. The... More

What I find special about this place is the location in a traditional village of Țara Moților, on a plateau at 1250 metres altitude, in a remote and quiet place of the country. The politeness and frendliness of the local villagers was astonishing for me. The fact that the entire area is so tranquil and perfect for relaxing makes Mărișel... More

Great food, nice people. Had a great weekend. I recommend the mushroom soup. The room's are clean the bed's are comfortable. The air is fresh. Great place to make a stop and relax for a few day's if you are planning a trip near this place. The only problem is the road which is awful but it's not they're fault... More

Third time here, good services nice people, awesome food! Quite landscape, disconnected from city isolated place for recharge your batteries. Best example to be followed by other romanian place owners Hopefully we have possibility to visit every year :)

...and maybe also get some work done :) Stayed there for 3 days with some business partners, so we had time to walk around, have some fun and also work for a bit. The owners were helpful and accommodated our requests, the place is really charming and clean, and the food is great! Will definitely go back some other time.

Good place to relax, with a great view, fresh food made by local products, tasty and healthy, and very helpful and friendly host. It's one of those places where you want to go and do not want to ever leave. If you want to find something out of the ordinary, this is the place.

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...
