Very private, beautifully renovated castle, the rooms are spacious and even if the castle is very old, the design of the rooms is kind of mix of old and very modern design. The staff is very professional and the outmost for making the stay as good as possible and beyond. The spa is great. Definitely recommend massage - the best I have had for a long time. The restaurant is definitely a top. We had 6 courses degustation menu and all dishes were just amazing. The breakfast was top.
We spent 4 nights at Chateau Heralec. Our room was large, clean and thoughtfully arranged. A wide range of literature was provided, including bedtime stories (local folktales), a history of the Chateau and helpful maps (which we used on our daily local walks). We took many peaceful strolls among the big, old trees in the vast Chateau gardens. We also made use of the saunas and steamroom in the beautiful and clean spa area. The Chateau staff, from the Reception to the chambermaids, were professional, pleasant and helpful. Our delicious breakfasts and dinners were made more enjoyable by the cheerful and knowledgeable Ms. šárka - our lovely waitress. So glad we were able to experience this bit of heaven in the Czech countryside!
I and my friend absolutely enjoyed our 2-nights stay. The place is absolutely stunning and nearly in the middle of nowhere. A receptionist came up to our room and showed us all around. It was very unusual for us. We dined in at dinner time. I had absolutely delicious Czech creamy dill soup with mushrooms. My friend had a veal steak with roasted cabbage and thick american chips. As I am a brunch fan, I had big breakfasts. It was also gastronomic experience.I would only say confidently that I had eaten a way better scrambled eggs elsewhere. Otherwise, I can recommend a muschroom omelete, baked musli with plain yoghurt, chateau little sausages and crepes. We enjoyed sauna, whirpool, swimming pool...There are two fitness rooms very very very well equipped :) Amazing! We were blessed to have the whole chateau for ourselves for one day. It was one of the top experience I have ever had...it makes such a great difference when you get the privilliege to be away in silence and peace. I loved and enjoyed the stay in maximum. I don't think I will come back because I'd rather experience something else rather than the same I had already experienced. Yet, I highly recommend it to those who want to enjoy luxurious and original type of stay. I'd suggest them to put more pictures on walls in hallways. Some parts of the hallways looked clinical and pale. In 5-star hotel I'd also expect a coffee machine available in guest rooms with nice coffee, rather than literally only a couple of instant 2 in 1 Nescafe sachets.…
Thanks a lot for the wonderful weekend we spent at this place. Chateau Heralec provided us with generous accommodation with plenty of space and also a beautiful outdoor space for relaxation and sports. We would especially like to thank you for arranging a wonderful and gourmet experience in the hotel restaurant. We would like to highlight the personal interest in each client, trying their best to meet our expectations. We can't wait to come back to you.
A castle transformed into a heaven on Earth! It has been our second time at Chateau Heralec: I have found it in a ranking of the top 10 castle hotels in the world – it is totally deserved and here is why: Everything was as if it was renovated just before our visit and all areas incl. the rooms were exceptionally clean. All members of the castle staff are very friendly and helpful – they do everything to make your stay unforgettable. The spa area offers everything you need for a complete relax experience, incl. a large pool and saunas. The location of the castle is in a quite area, you can enjoy the silence for example in the Silencarium right by the castle garden. We have also visited the hot tub in the castle tower – an enchanting experience. The castle restaurant is also fantastic: menu with variety, yet not too long to ensure absolute freshness. Ingredients come from local sources, some of them even from the castle garden. In a nutshell: Chateua Heralec is a splendid paradise. We will definitely visit this stunning place again! Milos R.…
Situated in a small typical Czech village, the majesty of Chateau Heralec catches your eye and overwhelms you immediately. From the preserved castle towers, to the spacious grand suites, to the attentive and welcoming staff, you truly feel like royalty from your first drive through the mighty gate. An experience everyone deserves, I highly recommend an escape from reality in this picturesque chateau.
Arriving at the gates of the chateau you may be mistaken for thinking that you have been transported to the land of fairytales. The grandeur of this castle takes hold of you from the moment you arrived to when you finally have to leave. ROOMS We stayed in the presidential suite, room 10. My first thought walking in was the sheer size it's truly massive 2x the size of my whole apartment. The living area with its ceiling frescos was a luxury touch that can only be found in places of this quality. The bed was super comfy & they even offer a pillow menu. The bathroom of this room was by far the most spectacular element of the room, truly the largest & most beautiful bathroom that I have ever seen with its double basins & freestanding bath with views out to the garden. COMMON AREAS Inside the castle, there are multiple area’s to sit & read a book or have a drink with friends & family. The castle is surrounded by an old English garden, a beautiful setting in the summer for a picnic. The smell of the flora & sound of the birds was hypnotic. SERVICES From the free Mercedes convertible car rental to the L’Occitane spa. Wellness & relaxation is a key feature of the hotel. With its pool, gym, sauna & steam rooms all included it was a great way to get away from the trouble of the modern world. They also have a full range of massages that are done with natural ingredients. RESTAURANT A beautiful place with painted frescos we managed to eat here one evening & the food was spectacular, I would defiantly recommend the duck. The complimentary breakfast is served here. I have to say that this was the best hotel breakfast I have ever had. It is all à la cart, order what you like they have an amazing array of local produce it was one of the highlights of the day. Ask to sit outside if it's sunny. LOCATION Just over an hour away from Prague in a small village it's the perfect weekend getaway. A lot of interesting town & villages in the local area to explore in the convertible. …
It was a celebration of my husband birthday nd anniversary. Great romantic place, excellent service, Great vhef in the restaurant, home baked bread and cakes, local products, highly reccommended! We will come again!
Relaxation with style Our anniversary trip to was perfect. From the sumptuous rooms to the warm personal greeting and subsequent interactions nothing could be faulted. We had an incredible massage and we used the swimming pool and health suites all of which was the perfect balance between luxury and relaxation. The food in the restaurant was in the modern Czech style and delicious. The waiting staff were attentive and friendly. We finished our stay with a trip out in their Mercedes convertible where we whizzed around the stunning countryside. It is such a special place.
This was our favorite place to stay on our Europe road trip. Upon arrival my daughter and I each got a long stemmed rose. They brought champagne for my husband and I and apple juice for our 3 kids. In our rooms were robes and slippers, for our whole family of 5! They even had small kid sized ones for our boys (9 and 7). Dinner was delicious. Breakfast was amazing!! The pool was a great temperature for the kids (We were there in February). The relaxing room was peaceful and the herbal sauna was a totally different experience-in a good way! HIGHLY recommend this for anyone traveling through Czech Republic-couples, families, or solo.
