(We didn't stay at the hotel, just visited the castle ant the restaurant!) Nice atmosphere, everything looks maintained and tidy. Great for a short visit from Zagreb, preferably via more interesting local roads.

Sophisticated old-world elegance in a beautiful setting along side a bucolic river and a pine forest. If your idea is a day of relaxing (not touring) then this is an ideal place. Food, public spaces and service are excellent. Not too much to do in Oceteč, so plan on making this a place to read, rest and....

My wife & I stayed only one night as part of a Adriatic Moto tour. It was an outstanding experience. They have done an extensive & expensive renovation while preserving the character of the castle. The service and food were also first class. Steffi & Tony, Sydney, Australia

Not often in your life that you get to stay several nights in a castle. This castle is wonderful. The best meal we had on a 3 week European vacation was at this castle. The orange wine is wonderful. Breakfast is included and very nice. We stayed here for our 33 anniversary. Loved the bed and the shower....oh my goodness,... More

Whilst the hotel is expensive (as is dining in the restaurant), it is worth every penny. Friendly staff serve a fantastically located castle that combines modern amenities tastefully with the historic exterior. The hotel was quiet yet atmospheric during the visit and I would highly recommend a stay here especially when travelling between Zagreb and Ljubljana.
