This 5 star Castle has a special location, on an Island, in the middle of Krka river. The Castle has an interesting history, and feels luxuries and relaxing. Very good service, and delightful food. The breakfast was splendid, with everything you could ask for. We also had two very good dinners, accompanied with splendid Slovenian wine.

A charming property in a delightful setting. The renovations are top notch, the staff was very helpful and we enjoyed our three night stay so much that we hope to return soon. The hotel has no pool of its own but does have arrangements with another nearby hotel for pool access, tennis and other spa amenities. Food was quite good.... More

The dinner at the castle was good but totally overpriced. The service on dinner was ok; especially with younger staff. The older generation daytime waiters were aweful. Just bad. Very bad. They have not learned one thing... More

Grad Otocec is beautifully situated on an island in the Krka River. The rooms have modern interiors but they do not detract from the charm of the place. Dinner and breakfast in summer are outdoors in a lovely courtyard. The whole place is very very quiet and peaceful, and the hotel staff seem to try to reinforce that though a... More

The hotel itself was amazing. It is really well decorated and situated on a small island. The beds are comfortable and windows open wide to let in fresh air. The breakfast is delicious and the cappuccinos keep coming. We have from the USA and rented a car to go to several countries including Slovenia. The problem came when we got... More

Who doesn't want to live like royalty? The property is lovely, staff was extraordinary. Rooms are large and quite modern and had everything one could ask for. Free parking. The restaurant in courtyard is about as lovely as it gets.
