My family and I stayed here for one night, although more would have been advisable. We arrived in the late afternoon and within an hour my daughter and I were on horses. We had a lovely trail ride through the pastures and forest behind the hotel, led by a very nice young guide. The horses were very good and we had a nice gallop in the fields. The stables are lovely and it is fun just to walk though even if you are not a rider. Bring carrots! They have a shetland pony that was a big hit with my youngest. There is a driving range, a very nice pool and deck, playground and a number of lovely areas to sit outside. The food was good with a nice variety and the staff were all extremely nice and pleasant. Even if there were not attractions to see, it would be a very lovely stay for a few days just to relax and play.
The rooms were very comfortable and nicely decorated. Care was taken in choosing the furniture, linens and decor, resulting in a very tasteful and pleasant atmosphere. My only suggestion would be to have more pillows on the bed as one is not enough per person. The hotel itself also has a number of little areas where you can sit and relax or play a game of cards.
There is a lot to see in the area and this is a great base to use. I would recommend at least 2 nights to see the fort in Deva (which we did not see due to time constraints), the castle in Hunedoara (fantastic!!!!), Roman ruins etc.
Overall, we all really enjoyed our stay and wished we could have stayed longer.
