Hotel Stekl is in a great location - basically right next door to the castle, which is apparently modelled on Windsor Castle in England. The entrance is on a private road and so you need a parking permit - which is not very clear until you check in. Check in was a bit slow and in general I'd say that customer service at the hotel was average-to-poor. For example the first time we dined in the restaurant, when I ordered they told me that the meal I ordered wasn't available: if there are items not available, why not tell people up-front rather than waiting until they're ready to order? Another issue with the restaurant is that the menu doesn't change: that means that if you're staying more than a few days, you're going to want to look elsewhere for dinner if you want some variety. The rooms are a good size, but somewhat dated in appearance and the lighting is flourescent, meaning they lack atmosphere which is a shame given the four-poster bed for example. The common areas of the hotel were cold, especially when people failed to close doors behind them (e.g. door to restaurant). The exterior doors are very large and noisy to close - one evening there was a lot of slamming as people didn't seem to bother to be very considerate to guests who might already be in bed. We also heard a very long argument between some guests in a neighbouring room so the insulation can't be very good. The spa facilities are pretty good - small pool, jacuzzi, private jacuzzi & sauna, gym. Again though it's odd that you would arrive in the spa and they don't offer you a towel or anything. Overall it's a good base of operations but they could make a lot more of the location.

My husband and I really enjoyed our one night stay after cycling to the hotel from Cesky Krumlov as one of our recommended stops on a self-Biking tour. The hill up to the castle and hotel was a challenge, so we Felt treated to make use of all the hotels amenities: hot tub, swim/plunge pool, salt steam room and onsite restaurant. We also enjoyed the castle gardens only 300 ft away and had the place to ourselves walking around taking pictures of the castle at sunset. We had a romantic dinner onsite before sleeping pretty early as we had to check out and cycle again the next day. I thought the room and bed was comfortable enough, it is an older place, felt a little ‘shining’ like in the halls at night as was not very busy time, midweek. However, I slept well and the room had everything you need, robes, slippers, hair dryer, shower had good hot water pressure. I enjoyed opening up the classic windows and shutters to let the hilltop breeze in the room, we did not miss air conditioner. In the morning the hotel provided a breakfast, I’d say that was just average but I was happy to have it included for the convenience. I’d recommend this classic Hotel if you plan to visit the castle and if short on time like us, this was a perfect spot to stay.

Around the corner from the Hluboka castle it is in a gorgeous location overlooking the town, the ponds and the vicinity. Room 304 is huge, beautiful, well-appointed with spectacular view and enormous bathroom. Staff very helpful. Breakfast nice and dinner delicious and affordable - everyone pleased with their choice: veal schnitzel, gnocchi, osso bucco, and my game medallions with chestnut purée. Would love to come back. Third floor "Deluxe rooms" must be a misnomer because they are attic rooms with small windows. Unfortunately, even in the hot weather no fans were available. Parking free in front, for a fee in an underground garage.

In the right hands - presumably non-Czech ones given this country’s innate struggle with hospitality and politeness - this huge place, in its great location adjacent to a castle and overlooking the town - would be a great place to stay. As it is, poor service and sometimes, barefaced rudeness undermine this potential. Checking in, the porter merely watched us struggle with our bags rather than helping. At dinner, we were rudely told we couldn’t order desert because the “chief” goes home at 9pm (even though it was actually 8.50). The tuna steaks we ordered arrived massively over cooked then, after we sent them back, we received new ones that were semi-frozen. Want proper coffee or bottled water with breakfast. “Is extra. You pay.”. On the plus side, nice amenities including a spa and decently sized rooms. But what a lost opportunity. This place is crying out for decent, caring ownership. Instead you get a crash course in how the Czechs just can’t do hospitality.

I am really disappointed! Only good thing is location and that some staff is friendly. Sometimes I used to celebrate something in this hotel,this time was last time. Room was not prepared - no bathrobe ,no slippers... (no bar)...bathtub was destroyed etc. (About wellness area -was quite dirty -especially pool and around and not in super conditions)we were more time by reception to resolving neverending problems. Last night talking with receptionist, the woman told us to talk with next receptionist in the morning - ok we did - the women was arrogant and no interested (16.8.2019) with last words to send an email to manager of this hotel....I am sorry , but for full price I paid,I am waiting better service. I see it is not just problem of this hotel, but I understand already why a lot of Czech people are going to another countries to spend holiday, when we are treated so.
