We had eaten a tremendous meal here before but never stayed overnight. The afternoon arrival was just as expected and met us with a tranquil setting with beautiful views over the river everywhere we looked. However, when we were greeted at the front desk we were abruptly told we could not eat in the dining room due to a private...

A unique and lovely hotel in a restored castle on its own island. It was indeed like being in a fairytale. We spent two nights in the ginormous presidential suite, which was a great base for castle-hopping/exploring in this part of Slovenia.

We loved the place. Its very nice an unique with a great surrounding area. Staff are very nice. The room is lovely and comfortable with nice view. We stayed for 1 night and it was enough to enjoy the place. Breakfast was good. Dinner was ok but you only have 1 option.

(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,...
