We decided to visit for the weekend for a short getaway. Our "wonderful" trip started with not being able to get to the place. The road to the resort was being repaired and there was no detour marked anywhere, so we called to find out how to get there. At first no one answered the phone, I tried a bunch of alternative numbers and eventually someone grumpy answered telling us "how should I know how to get to us". That was a first sign there was something dodgy about this so-called resort. We ended up driving through the corn field to get there, thanks goodness for our old 4x4. They had a sauna but it was closed so not much to do on the territory. In the evening during our dinner they said that the kitchen was experiencing technical difficulties and the restaurant would be closed the next day so we would not get hot breakfast that was nicely described in their booklet and which we really looked forward to. There was something weird about it since we got dinner alright amid all the "technical difficulties" so I suspected they did not want to make breakfast for just 3 couples that were staying there overnight. In the morning we went looking for the breakfast since no one came to our room and spotted the admin walking around with plastic bags. We got some old sandwich, a cucumber, a green plum and a teabag. They made zero effort to organize an edible breakfast. I asked around and apparently they do that all the time to save money and locals are just ok with that.

Excellent hotel. Large and clean rooms. Location is excellent to discover Moldova. Excellent restaurant with excellent wines. Service is good but think about pre-ordering the food if they have a large group in.

A true 5* hotel in services, comfort, people and everything. I came here for a wine trip, = had a great time at the hotel, at dinner and at the wine tasting. I knew most of their wines since I am a wine lover but I requested for a special food & wine pairing dinner at it was great. Totally recommend it and I am definitely coming back! I just love this place!

Chateau Vartely is an industrial-scale winery, with a busy banqueting facility attached, which does a roaring trade in weddings at the weekends. The 12-room accommodation side of the business is very much the poor relation. Guests staying in these rooms have to present themselves in person at the restaurant to make a booking - it can't be done by phone or by the management of the accommodation side of the operation. They also have to pay for each meal as they take it. Thus far, none of this is any great hardship. But, if you stay here at the weekend, when they're busy with weddings, you've got a real problem. On Saturday night, a restricted menu was offered because the kitchen was so busy with the wedding catering. In terms of main courses, choice was limited to chicken stew or pork stew. Both portions were very small and low on flavour. To compensate for these defects, they were accompanied by sour cream, grated cheese, a little scrambled egg and a large yellow object which could have been corn bread. After eating this indifferent meal, we retreated to our room, where we had to put up with the wedding reception’s music until 04:00. Having slept poorly the night before, I tried for a siesta on Sunday, but was constantly disturbed by bridal parties who seemed to think our 'private' balcony provided a nice location for a photo. At least we weren't troubled by housekeeping, because rooms don't seem to be serviced at weekends. We were faced with the same limited menu on Sunday, but we gave the stews a miss! We opted for soup, a plate of grilled vegetables and some cheese. It was pleasant enough, but not exactly a 5-star hotel restaurant meal! The hotel has some pluses. The rooms are spacious and have a lot of character - the idea is that the three 'villas' mimic the architectural styles of south, central and north Moldova. Although it is not set amongst vineyards, the hotel has a pleasant semi-rural location with good views to the west. When it's not doing weddings, it's a peaceful place with attentive service. And the wine-tasting is well worth doing. I can imagine that a weekday visit might have merited a score of 4. I'm disappointed that we stayed over a weekend, and hope others will avoid making that mistake.

Room Tip: Rooms in the 'North' villa are larger, and west-facing rooms have better views.

We very much enjoyed our stay in the spacious VIP apartment with its own fire place. The only thing I would recommend is an upgrade (replacement) of the rather uncomfortable mattresses. The Restaurant serves great food and of course excellent wines! There is lots of space for the kids to stroll around and staff is very friendly AND (!) yes, they do speak English. Our tour guide for example was speaking fluent in English.
