Travelers' Choice
The Grand Hotel Primus is a medium-sized hotel with 119 rooms. The hotel was named after the famous Roman general Marcus Antonius Primus, who was the first to carry the name of Ptuj, Slovenia's oldest town, out into the world. The town's rich Roman history can be felt at every step: guests of the hotel can relax in a Roman-style wellness centre or enjoy culinary delicacies based on recipes from the distant past. For a different type of enjoyment, there is the Ptuj Golf Course. Even the MICE services have a touch of ancient Rome about them. Next to the hotel there is a large thermal water park featuring an Olympic-size swimming pool for the enjoyment of guests of all ages.

Came to Primus for a 4 hour swim and sauna session. We did not spend the night at the hotel but it is possible to use the hotel wellness facilities at a reasonable price. The saunas and steam rooms are excellent, naked is mandatory, there are 3 steam rooms and 4 saunas, ice pool and many showers. Swimming pool is outside and inside. Really good.

The hotel is amazing. The pool area is very large with bubblers and water spouts. Our room was larger than the ordinary room we are used to. The location is excellent for day trips around the country. A very good breakfast is included. The pasteries at the bar are delicous, if you like sweets.

The venue has a perfect location - 15 minutes of pleasant walk along the Drava river to the historic city center. It looks like it was placed just below the castle. Very well maintained hotel and wellness area, impeccable green areas. A golf course is located nearby. A well maintained small camping site is a part of the site as well. The spa area is divided into the big "public" area with big swimming pools and slides for kids and adults and the hotel own one, beautiful saunas included, which is in general meant for the hotel guest only. Adjacent to it is the wellness&beauty part managed by a medical doctor, offering high quality services, not the usual commercial stuff only. They also offer rehabilitation therapies for moving disorders and some othe illnesses. The food at the 2 restaurants is extremely tasty with occasional dishes which are far above the level of quality expected at a hotel restaurant.

Hotel Primus, Ptuj. Fair size room, balcony with views of countryside and distant hills. Attractive and clean shower room. The impressively Star Wars-looking shower has the option of jets squirting out at various angles .Light wood bedroom furniture looks good but lack of shelves for storage. Some drawers not much more than one inch deep, so not very useful. Bedside lamps not bright enough to make reading comfortable. Room was not cleaned just duvets put back, not very neatly, and bin emptied. Nothing done in shower room at all. Not impressed by this. Free, effective Wi-fi. Corridor has permanent loop of irritating tinkly Muzak, until about 10pm, which leaked into the room. Reception and bar areas tidy, spacious and light but some of the chairs threadbare and a bit grubby looking. Unusually spacious lifts which arrive without too long to wait. Efficient front desk. Tables in dining room well spaced to facilitate the trips to the buffet - no waiter service. Staff could be more smartly dressed. Food varied, abundant and ok, but definitely not haute cuisine. It put me in mind of a better-class works canteen’s offerings. The vegetables could have done with a few more minutes in the pan. The scrum at peak times and prevalence of shorts and tee shirts among the clientele suggested that fine dining is not to be expected. A waiter eventually comes to take your drinks’ order. The service is not done with a smile. It would be hard to part with €25 or more for a bottle of wine to enjoy in that ambiance. At breakfast there was what was described as ‘fried eggs’ but it looked like rather horrible scrambled egg - lots of bits, some of them grey. There are facilities I did not use like large jacuzzi in the garden, which seemed popular, and various wellness services. Good reports from other guests of the indoor/outdoor swimming pools connected by a tunnel. In mid-September there was nothing to do in the evening other than the bar. Location, about a mile out of town. On foot you can go along the riverbank and cross a pedestrian bridge which brings you into the lower part of Ptuj. If conditions are right you get nice reflections of the castle and other buildings in the water. The Primus is rated as 4 star presumably because of its facilities and its generally spacious layout but I feel it could smarten itself up and do a bit better.

Dear guest, Many thanks for your recent visit and your review. Guest experience is important for us since they help us create best offers and services in accordance with the needs and wishes of the guests. We sincerely regret to have learned about your disappointment with our cleaning service and at this point, we already discuss this issue. According to food, we mostly receive very good feedback from our guests but of course, tastes are different and I regret that our range of choices did not meet your standards. Our staff wears uniforms, only helping staff, like students and praxis, have their own clothes, but they have to follow the hotel standard. We are known as a hotel with kindly staff, which always helps our guests, so a smile on our faces is not a question, it belongs to our day job. Maybe it was just a moment and we excuse ourselves if you did not feel our hospitality. We will do our best to improve our services in the future. I hope that you decide to visit us again as we would like to improve an impression from your last stay. Milena Mojzeš Destination executive Director

The staff were very nice and accommodating. Rooms were adequate but you had to be on 3rd floor to have a kettle. The buffet restaurant was limited in choice but what was available was good. However, if you were later in the restaurant food was not replenished so choice could be even more limited. The thermal pools were great, even a little too warm, not a swimming pool just relaxing. Nice riverside walk into the pretty town of Ptuj. L
