“Amazing hotel”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We spent in this chateau our NYE and this hotel is one of the best where we stayed. The chateau is very beautiful and i recommended it for weekends. Wellness in this property is amazing. I like nice swimming pool and relax area (sauna, hot tub...). Staff is very friendly, rooms are comfortable and food is tasty. Last but not least the romantic ambiance is unbeatable. Only one thing can be negative - Location = there is nothing in surrounding area.

We spent a weekend here with my girlfriend. The chateau is beautiful, the rooms were comfortable and well equipped and the restaurant was great. The staff were super-friendly, the walk around the garden was pleasant. Other than that, it's a boring place and definitely more focused at events/conferences.

This is the second time I've stayed here this year. Last time it was with my husband in the busy summer, this time without in a cold autumn/winter. As a lone femal traveller, I found this hotel slightly more spooky than last time. The light sensors in the corridors do not always come on so you often walk into complete darkness only to walk back, jump up and down until the light comes on. Perhaps it didn't help that the night I stayed, there were very few guests and literally howling winds though the trees and castle, very "Transylvania".
Breakfast opens at 8 am and as I had to be away by 8.20, I did not get a chance to get or eat my eggs which was a shame.
Dinner however was again truly delicious and is highly recommended.
I would definitely come here again as a couple and perhaps in the summer when it's not so dark and a bit busier if I'm alone. Massive pillows are still a problem for me.

We have just returned from our wedding in Chateau Appony, Oponice. Chateau is a beautiful hotel with peaceful parkland.

The staff members offer TOP customer service approach and especially Mr. Placko, a hotel manager, went certainly well beyond the regular customer service.

The Chateau offers great location for those looking to hold intimate weddings and offers a number of options for your wedding guests.

We are happy that we have decided for wedding in Oponice. The personal interest, professional service and attention to every detail that the team put into our wedding has earned them a unique reputation from us.

Evening romance and beutiful privately landscaped garders make it the perfect setting for those memorable photos!

Room Tip: Definitely go for suite option! Just awesome!

We stayed here on our way through from north to south Slovakia. Despite other reviews, we had a really good time here. The plus points are:
- Beautifully restored little castle (they brought it back from the ruins and it took them 4 years to complete)
- Nice spa area which is open 8 am - 10 pm (bonus if you arrive late), Spa includes a pool, steem room, sauna, jaccuzi and ice cold bucket shower. We were alone here at 9.30 and it was wonderfully relaxing
- Dinner till 10 pm too, the mushroom soup was to die for and definitely 5 star. The service by a gentleman was always with a smile, good English language skills and very helpful alround.
- Tennis court (extra cost)
- Library: This is definitely worth a visit but you get charged €6 each. It is a beautiful old restored library with original Shakespeare, Mollet, Goethe, Leonardo da Vinci and many more. The Librarian is very passionate about his work and has some of his own collection there too.

The not so good:
- Not sure if this is a Slovakian thing but you only get 1 pillow which is enormous, I would have preferred 2 smaller ones. Rooms are smallish but very stylishly furnished. Not too many English channels but adequate.

We stayed in Oponice in May 2012 for 2 nights. The castle is very romantic place, so I strongly recommend it to all couples for romantic escape. We met absolutely excellent staff here, exceptional in Slovakia. All the members of staff vere extremely friendly, pleasant and helpfull. The rooms were very nicely furnished, clean, spacious enough, just the beds need to be somehow anchored or so, as they move on the floor. The restaurant is fine, just the breakfast was below average of 4 stars hotel (the baked goods were very week), the dishes ala carte were nice and tasty. We appretiated wellness, which is excellent. We didn´t miss anything there. The park surrounding the castle is beautiful and if you live in town, you fell like in paradise, it is so peacefull! We traveled with small child, we got travelcot to our room (on request) and also high chair in the restaurant is no problem. I would only welcome to have normal crib for our child, once we stay in 4 stars hotel.There is no kids corner in the hotel, but if the weather is fine, the park itself is great playground. We missed some swing ans sandpit, once there is small kids playground in park, could be extended. If I summarise it, if was with no doubts the best hotel in Slovakia we have ever visited, mostly because of the staff, so I wish the level of services keeps like this for ever. Recommend for escape from bussy places and all couples in love. And don´t forgett to visit Appony library in the castle!

The hotel is nice but comparing to other 4 * hotels, you can see that they only opened lately. The buffet breakfast was not what we expected and we waited more than 20 minutes for scrambled eggs and one sausage. When we wanted dinner in the room, they told us that its not possible and the next day for lunch we had to go downstairs to take menu, as they did not have one in the room. When i wanted to go for a massage, i tried 3 times and they did not have towels, so i couldn t get massage. Hotel is nice and spa as well but for the price we paid, the service was not as in other 4* hotels we ve been to. Staff was nice. And food was ok. I missed more little decorations like flowers, paintings etc. Beds were 2 and not one double, try to make love on splitting beds:/
