Stayed here in August 2015 on a family vacation. Eight people in our group including grandparents and young children. Castle is in a beautiful setting and rooms don't disappoint-plush beds and all the amenities. Restaurant is great, but the courtyard setting outshines the food. Service is excellent-what you would expect from 5 star. Sparkling wine offered upon arrival (along with... More

We had an amazing visit to the superbly renovated castle. The décor and standards were impeccable, the rooms quiet and comfortable, and the staff were absolutely brilliant. The food and service in the dining room were first rate, and the menu and wine list were creative and comprehensive. We only wish we could have stayed longer.

Rooms are comfortable, clean and big enough. This is a real 5 star hotel. The hotel is situated on the small island of the KRKA river. The staff is very friendly and helpfull, the restaurant is amazing.

We decided to stay in the castle as a once in a lifetime opportunity and we thrilled we did. Our room was very comfortable and felt quite luxurious. We had the 8 course degustation dinner which was fabulous. Breakfast was included in the price of the room, and there was a very wide range of foods to satisfy us. We... More

Where do I start? Our family stayed here for about a week and we had an excellent experience. Rooms - We stayed in the suites and the rooms were of a very good size. We were three in a Senior Suite and we had 2 bedrooms and a huge bathroom. The decor was quite modern for such an old castle,... More

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...
