I rent a car from Skopje just to go to Popova Kula Hotel and Winery to spend a night and experience the Macedonian wines ! And it was an excellent choice !

The Hotel : My room was big, bed comfortable, with a balcony with a view on the vineyard. (a fews things : the toilet wasn't well fixed on the floor and the thing the hage the shower head was broken). Also the guy at reception desk brought me to the cave and explaned me how they are doing wine at the winery !

The restaurant : I had Mirko as the waiter and he was really great ! During the tasting, he gave me a lot of information about each wine I was about to taste. The tasting worth the price because they serving it with cheeses, dry meats and also a lovely dessert. The dinner after was also very enjoyable ! Portions were big enough. The breakfast was excellente, great choice of self-service food !

It was such a nice place and a very lovely time I spent there. The hotel has a very friendly staff and it is very relaxing, I was not expecting to feel so comfortable and happy with my stay. It is a little bit rustic but at the same time modern, which is the greatest part of it because it is like a trip to the past but enjoying the goods and services of the 21st century. Wine was excellent and food really delicious in a restaurant with a wonderful view. Nature is awesome and harmonious and you can enjoy of a place with no air pollution and hideaway from the noises of the big cities. I really recommend this winery if you wanna relax, specially in these hard times if Coronavirus.

At the recommendation of the Mayor of your municipality Demir Kapija, Lazar Petrov on Thursday 12.03 we spent the night in your facility. I bring you the following remarks:
1. On admission to the hotel, we are placed in rooms 207 and 208 which are cold and cannot be heated by air conditioning because one of them is broken and switches on every 20 minutes and works for 10 minutes and then switches off again.
2. There is no hot water in the rooms, the water temperature is only so much that the water is not as cold as ice. There was no hot water in the evening or in the morning. On departure, a receptionist asked why there was no hot water, saying that we needed to let the water flow longer to get the hot water going. Maybe we should have let go for 30 min?
3. Food is a complete disaster. We ordered the pork curry on the grill and we got the hard and tasteless pork medallions baked on the pan and not on the grill. Chicken in a 4-cheese sauce is not in a 4-cheese sauce but in an unfamiliar pepper-filled sauce. The salads are completely unspoiled with bad cheese, while the safe salad looks like a salad made by the receptionist, not the kitchen chef. The waiter is polite but cannot serve wine or recommend food or wine. The wine of Tamjanika Aristocrat is excellent. But completely wrongly served without the guest having the opportunity to try after opening the bottle. The rating for the restaurant is 0. After this experience with the restaurant, we didn't even have breakfast in the morning.
4. The access to the hotel is dirty and muddy and not lit. Upon arrival and departure from your hotel, the guest must wash the car because you do not maintain the street where the hotel is located.

Conclusion: It is a great shame to keep such a beautiful facility with exceptional wines this way. I think that with the price of 30 euros for sleeping in a cold room without hot water, I was completely fooled and that for a dinner of 2100 denars I was also completely fooled. If you cannot maintain the quality of service do not do this business, sell or close the hhis is never done. I will never come again, and will inform my experience of all the people who come there, as I will inform Mayor Lazar Petrov himself. You are a disgrace to wonderful Macedonia!

Great service and friendly staff, always ready to meet all the customer's need. A beautiful, calm and relaxing place, even joyful for the little ones. And most important of all things their wine and their brandy tastes incredibly great. I totally recommend it!

We stayed at Hotel & Winery Popova Kul for one night at the end of a bike trip through Macedonia and Albania. It's a very nice inn and winery. The rooms are nice but not great - more importantly, half of them face away from the winery to a gravel pit. For those on the winery side, each has a balcony for a nice view.

Fabulous hotel and restaurant centred on a lovely winery in SE North Macedonia in the Tikves wine region. Wonderful food in airy restaurant, and we were lucky enough to meet the owner and be allowed up to watch sunset from the tower tasting a glass of the rose wine. Highly recommended place to stay

Lovely area, the food is very good and well presented. Our room was large and clean, with a balcony. However, the hotel, and rooms, need renovation. There was peeling paint, and there had been some water damage that was repaired — sort of. Also, the bathroom looks 20+ years old. Everything works, but everything is tired, and some of the mechanicals clearly need to be replaced. Staff is helpful. Good WiFI. Needs to have tea and coffee making facilities in the room.

We were there with a child old 10 months. Before that we were on Greece seaside and want to be one day at Popova Kula on our way to home.
We were hungry and after check in we go to restaurant to lunch. We were waiting for waiter to come about 45 minutes. He brought to us meny, and he never come back. We were waiting 20 minutes and then left the restaurant. Meanwhile, in the restaurant were some Italian tourists and they of course had advantages than baby to eat. My husband goes to reception and told them that is not right to wait more than 1 hours with small baby. But nobody cares.
So we go to shop and by foods for us.
Does the problem was that we are from Serbia, probably yes, so people from Serbia don’t go there. It is easier to eat in some Serbian restaurant after border which is very close

At the end of an amazing road trip through beautiful Macedonia, we ended up for one night at Popova Kula - and we surely saved the best for last! It was perfect in every way: incredibly kind and friendly staff, the apartment "Sauvignon Blanc" was luxurious and very comfortable, and for dinner we decided on the "gastronomic wine tasting". The tasting was fantastic, the four-course meal was delicious and the wines... the wines were excellent! We ended up buying 7 bottles of wine in total the next day :)). It wasn't the most important issue, but the prices were a very pleasant surprise as well. Next time I'm in Macedonia, I'm definitely going back to Popova Kula and in the meantime I'm recommending it to all my friends.
