Did not stay over night, just dined in the restaurant. The food was good, service though not that great, very slow, waiters are not very responsive to small groups of people as I noticed. I needed to chase them down in order to pay the bill. Other than that the place is really cool to visit. Very traditional.

Stunning hotel , stunning location, stunning prices. We made a short lunch stop there. Although we did not expect low prices as they consider themselves as very posh hotel, we were nonetheless surprised when they charged us 55 EUR for two salads with chicken (few small pieces of chicken, which they value at 13 EUR per person) and two 1dl...

Stayed here for 2nights in February having stayed here several times before. The hotel is an old castle in a stunning' fairytale' location on a small island in the middle of the river Krka. Ideal for a getaway from it all break! In recent years the hotel has been tastefully restored, all the rooms are to a very high standard... More

My family and I stayed here for a weekend in order to celebrate the wedding anniversary of my grandparents. Besides huge rooms, beautiful scenery and delicious food I have to mention that the service is remarkable. We wanted to have a perfect day and we did indeed - on the day we had beautiful flower decorations, a delicious cake, fishing... More

Definitely it is one the top restaurants from Slovenia. It is placed in a castle on an island. The hotel and the restaurant has veritable 5 stars. Be prepared for high bill, but belive me that you'll remain fully satisfied for the spent time and money at this faimos location.

My first visit I stayed for 4 nights during July 2014, using the grounds to launch our range of products to British press and distributors. The setting is just perfect picture postcard, surrounded by the river and with a woodland back drop, Castle Otocec has been refurbished and tastefully rebuilt to offer a five star welcome. It is no surprise... More

We stayed 2 nights in July as part of our honeymoon and it was magical. First, it has the charm, luxury and service that you'd expect at a Relais Chateaux property. We ate dinner twice at the restaurant and were pleased with the food, although the head waiter had somewhat of an attitude. The hotel is owned by the subsidiary... More

You can drop quite a few celebrity names of fellow hotel guests here starting with Piers Brosnan and Sean Connery. We stayed just after Rolls-Royce had taken over the castle to launch their new car to the Italian press. On arrival take one look and you will instantly see why those who can easily afford to stay in any of... More

We stayed two nights and were upgraded to the HUGE Presidential Suite. The hotel was lovely, an authentic castle decorated with modern taste still respecting the historical venue.The service was excellent. Breakfast was wonderful with fresh ingredients and very plentiful options. We had dinner in the restaurant our first night and it was superb. The setting is on a small... More

Atmospheric hotel with excellent service and very delicious food (not something that we found characteristic of the rest of Slovenia). Beautiful position on the river with extensive woods nearby for wandering. Use of sporting facilities (tennis, basketball) very short walk away, convenient for thermal spa (though slightly Eastern Bloc atmosphere there) 5 minutes drive. Very easy access to motorway and...
