We stayed in Miklósvár and Zalampatak for 4 nights. The countryside is beautiful and the trips very nice however both guesthouses could endevour to pay more attention to guests to make them feel welcome. As the below reviews mention the service was not of a high standard and nor was the food which was pretty poor. Management seem to believe... More

Just returned after spending 2 nights in the valet room and one in Prince Charles' room. Perhaps some reviewers criticising many aspects miss the whole point of this place? It's not supposed to be luxury or michelin starred food. We found the food plentiful and satisfying & the wine perfectly adequate. The waiting staff are lovely and all the guides... More

I stayed at Zalanpatak for three nights. This is one of the most beautiful areas we have stayed. The walks and the trips out by horse and cart are fantastic and anyone who likes walking and nature will love it here. There were also a few great members of staff in this guesthouse such as the man who drives the... More

I am glad our surroundings were appreciated. This place is not meant to be a hotel or a pension, but rather a more private place where you can stay and meet like-minded fellow travelers. Staff is from the village and the region. I'm sorry communication seems to have been amiss in this particular case. I was informed the other guests... More

It's quite hard to review this place as, in so many ways, it is utterly charming and was probably the most interesting place we stayed in during our tour of Romania. In common with our experience of the whole of Romania, the staff were outstanding and always went the extra mile to be helpful and accommodating. Here though, they had... More

I ‘m afraid the term ‘Regally’ does not really apply here, as Miklosvar is owned by my family. At best, you might use ‘aristocratically’. However, as one might have noticed, this place is not meant to be glamorous. On the contrary, it is all about the character of the village itself. I am sorry the anonymity of the internet might...

I originally came to this area 3 years ago and visited again as it is so unique and beautiful here. I was collected from the airport by Josef who made the 3 & 1/2 hour drive a pleasant journey. Everything at Miklosvar was as lovely as I remembered - staff, food and accommodation. This time I had a room at... More

We stayed at the guesthouse at Miclosvar and enjoyed excellent hospitality in wonderful surroundings. Food and service are very good. Prices are high for this region but the experience is unique. Prince Charles house is along a separate valley and can also be booked so I advise checking where you are actually booked into.

We've travelled to many parts of the world and there are few places in our experience that compete for charm with Count Kalnoky's guesthouses. The guesthouses in the village of Miklósvár centre on a delightful 1850s two-storey, plus basement, building (picture attached), It contains a breakfast and sitting room on the ground floor, dining room and further sitting room in...

The place is as others have stated - truly in the Transylvanian countryside. If you are looking for the real Transylvanian experience courtesy of late 19th /early 20th Century then this place is a MUST. The manor house was something off a movie set, but real. The fire places, furnishings, decor, country side, small village surrounding, home traditional cooking you... More
