We were very fortunate to booked Otocec Castle for six nights last spring. Our family of five were billeted into 2 rooms. My children were in junior suite while my husband and I were upgraded to the Presidential suite!!! Mh oh my! What a room! It was elegantly furnished in a very royalty fashion and equipped with modern amenities. Needless... More

When I first saw this Castle I was immediately transported to another time space frame. I jumped in the river and swam. I could feel those rocks and I do feel them till today. I will never forget that moment!

Settled on the banks of river Krka, lies a beautifull small medieval castle turned into a luxury hotel. The service and scenery are exquisit !!! Enjoy the walk along side the river bank or through the forest. Highway is near enough as well is the city of Novo Mesto. Great place for a few days rest.

I've always wanted to stay in a castle and booked a room at Otocec to coincide with a visit to meet relatives living in Novo Mesto area. Rooms are very luxurious and comfortable but the bathroom and shower in our room (14) were on the smaller side. Grounds are beautiful. Otocec is worthy of its 5 star rating but, for... More

Well, not sure from where to start. First of all, if you are looking for some budget accomm or meal, then you should skip this place. However, rooms are new and renovated in the style, suite is really big and wonderful. Should stay there for a few days to have enough time enjoy each corner. Restaurant and wine selection, not...

This is a fairytale setting and the hotel does not disappoint. The interior is so beautifully appointed that it actually competes well with the spectacular setting. The staff leans toward friendly in a place that could easily become snobbish but isn't. Breakfast runs the full gamut and dinner was delicious. Strangely there was no regular black tea and wifi wasn't... More

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.

I had long over due the review of this fantastic hotel – which is real castle. In fact the old castle was renovated and now is a luxury hotel. Every time I travel near the area with car on the way to Italy - I always prefer to stay in Otocec. They have one of the best and most quiet... More

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.
