My boyfriend, his parents and I stayed at Penzion Onyx for 3 nights in December 2009 over the Christmas holidays. We enjoyed every moment of our stay. Peter and Daniela, the owners, are incredibly warm and helpful. We joined them for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day dinners as well as chats around the fireplace. They cooked up a storm and were especially accommodating for my boyfriend’s father, who does not eat dairy products. They even had small Christmas gifts for each of us, and we especially loved the way they shared local (and British) Christmas traditions with us.
The penzion itself is nicely decorated and really makes you feel at home, especially with the fireplace going when you come in from the cold weather outside (only during wintertime). I should also mention that Peter and Daniela gave us great ideas for day trips from Cesky Krumlov, including Hluboka Castle and Lake Lipno. (It’s nice to rent a car when going to Cesky Krumlov because without one, these day trips aren’t possible, and in winter when it’s cold outside, it’s much easier to drive into town than walk, although taxis are also an option). My boyfriend’s father, who normally stays at four and five star hotels, told us at the end of the trip that he enjoyed the personal touch and warm atmosphere of Penzion Onyx so much that he would now consider B&Bs over fancy hotels for future trips.
