Hotel Golfer
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Kremnica
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Three Star Hotel Golfer is located in a beautiful surrounding. I visited it in spring when it was possible to use only indoor activities because of the weather. There aren't many positive things I can write about.
Shortly after taking the keycard we found out that the door can't be open by it. Staff didn't checked the lock with discharged battery. After entering the room we found dead flies on the pillow and in the bathroom. There was cold in the room because the radiators were turned off. There was bag with water in the shower (probably because of the smell of pipes) suggesting that there wasn't anybody accommodated for a long time. Beds were old and creaking. I couldn't even open safe in the cupboard though I followed the instructions written on the paper. Most of there lacks could be removed by visiting the room by staff before accommodating guests.
I wanted to visit hotel gym bur there was only a collection of old unusable equipment. We couldn't play table-tennis because of old destroyed racquets. The darts-machine was also very old and sometimes not responded to the throw of darts with destroyed wings. Pool was quite capable except discharged bulb over it.
I visited this hotel mainly due to my visit of Mint Kremnica. Neverthless I must admire swimming pool, sauna and great meals prepared by french chef.

Beatiful location, great atmosphere, very friendly bosses. We really felt welcome. Special bonus was a French CCO ("Chief Cuisine Officer" :-)) with his fluent Slovak language skills. I would highly recommend to everyone interested in relaxing stay within a picteresque countryside.

Stayed: August 2013, traveled with family

The hotel was almost empty during our stay which we really appreciated because we needed the peaceful and quiet holiday to take a rest from our time-consuming jobs. We did not expect five-star hotel services but were very positively surprised by the friendly staff and mainly the chef (or the "directeur" as they called him because that is the the right expression for the head chef in French :-)) who was French but spoke Slovak very well. He offered us his special gourmet menu which consisted of french specialities such as frog legs, snails and on our request he made us his famous foie gras which really deserves some taste award. It was really one of the best meals we have eaten so far. We were told that when the hotel is full they hire an extra chef to help him so we cannot evaluate the other chefs meals which are there quite common as they said that from the end of August the hotel tends to be full until spring. The rooms were standard, clean and cozy. They serve good cakes, coffee and home-made limonade in the bar which we gladly tasted more than once. We relaxed in private jacuzzi outside the hotel or used indoor pool with sauna. In Kreminca there are some possibilities as for what to do, and even though we stayed four nights we were not bored at all, we read books on the terrace or took nice walks around the castle town. We will gladly come back again.

we have visited this hotel via coupons, so i think that it was ok. but if i had to buy it for a standard price , i would be dissapointed. maybe thats why was hote empty. stuff was ok, but the services.. buffet breakfast table very poor, in season of vegatables only tomaotes, one kind of bread... missing fridge in room and wifi ... for a price nearly 80 €,/ night - as it is written in pricelist i would be very very unsatisfied.. but for a price 60 for two night, it was ok.. but nothing special..

Room Tip: it quiet, but little bit far from the city... wellness is also very poor...

Very peaceful and quiet hotel. Services were ok, nice room, good food. Countryside around the hotel is amazing. The chef was really a fun of his job. During our stay, the hotel was almost empty. (I wonder why?)

Room Tip: We had room on the 3rd floor. It was bigger then usual.

If you look for a nice family hotel with a cozy and friendly atmosphere in beautiful and quite surroundings, Hotel Golfer is right for you. Although we chose this hotel for a business partners meeting I wouldn´t mind staying there privately.
We really enjoyed a mix of slovak and french cuisine in the restaurant and we highly appreciated a personal approach of the owner and staff of the hotel.
Forested mountains around Kremnica, town where is hotel situated, offer plenty of sports possibilities such as skiing, cross country skiing, cycling, hiking. You can also enjoy walks in the center of the town paved with cobbled stones with a very interesting and unique history .
