Initially we were a little disappointed by this hotel; its reception area is poky and unimpressive but the staff were helpful despite having little English. The rooms were large and clean but quite characterless considering the lovely old building. Nevertheless the beds were comfortable and the basement restaurant very good. I could live with the mismatched towels as, like everything else, they were clean and as we were only there for two nights, it was fine.
The small village is very pretty and the castle is lovely. Our Czech friend was getting married in the castle which was a delightful occasion with Czech and English participants enjoying themselves immensely. There isn't much to do in Loket but it is in a beautiful setting with the river running close by and the tree clad mountains all around. Unfortunately it was cold and damp during our stay but I can imagine that it is beautiful in good weather.
