Dear guest, we appreciate and value all the opinions and reviews of our guests. We have no problem accepting criticism if it is justified. However we can not agree with your words, and need to say that your accusations are unacceptable. For our quality speaks our reputation among our guests and many excellent reviews of satisfied customers. We are proud that during the history of our restaurant we have won many satisfied customers and outstanding reputation far and wide. The profesionality and attitude of our employees is appreciated by many our regular guests and it is highly valued in many reviews. We appreciate the trust of our customers, we would never offer a poor quality meat to our clients, in no case rotten meat. We also reject your accusations about not helping and unwilling attitude. Your complaint have been taken seriously and solved by our emploeyees. Your complaint was solved on the spot with our chef, and waiters. All of them tasted the meat and did not found any problem with the steak, you was also showed the piece of meat from which your steak was prepared. The steak you got was of the same meat from which the chef prepared steaks for guests next to your table, in the same time. We asked them as well, steaks has been rated as delicious. Upon your complaint, you were prepared different kind of steak - the beef steak - that you consumed. The second steak was prepared for free, you have only been charged the original order. After your complaint about the price, you have been only charged the cheaper steak. Your original order - Rib Eye steak was probably not good choice for you, but it is not the reason for unjustified charges and attacks. The steak was prepared professionally from high quality, fresh meat. Our guests, their opinions and their satisfaction with our services are extremely important for us. However we do not accept misleading allegations and depreciation of our work. We are sorry about your feelings, however we insist on our statement - your complaint was unjustified, as we explained and proved to you and your friends during your visit in our restaurant. Each of us gives everything he can do into our work. We are really disappointed about people, who are unable to accept that they are not always right and ventilate their excitement by writing unsubstantiated and deceptive ratings. In this case we need to defend our work from misleading and unjustified accusations. Every guest is very important for us and we regret that you did not leave our restaurant satisfied. But the non-recognition of an unjustified complaint is not a reason for a similar review nor for an attempt to spoil the years-built good reputation of our restaurant. We are sure about the quality of our work which is confirmed by many regular and returning guests. We have no problem accepting legitimate criticism, we take it as an opportunity to improve our services. But we do not accept deceptive allegations. Hotel Galileo Donovaly****

This is for sure the best place to stay and to eat at Donovaly. You can select from local dishes, some specials and steaks. The hotel has nice rooms, but the highlight is the spa on the top floor with a great view. Fried cheese on the pic - a local must have Slovak specialty.

"Try to get a room on the back side of the hotel. No gallery but less loud if there's some party down the hotel."
"Room on front of hotel so you can see the slops."
"Ask for a room with a balcony"
"If you must stay here, don't allow them to put you in a room directly above the restaurant. It will be loud!"
"rooms in the front are sunny and view out is magical"
