We had amazing New Year's stay in GrandCastle. Our apartment (no. 1) was spacious & tastefully decorated. The hotel building (17th century Manor House) and preserved 14th century castle give you unique opportunity to travel back in time. Although modern conveniences like sauna, decent size swimming pool, gym are also available. We had pleasure to meet the owner and we admire her passion to restore this place and bring it to its best - Grand Castle indeed.
We also want to praise the hotel staff (reception, restaurant) - they are nice and helpful people!
The New Year dinner atmosphere was wonderful & fireworks display was 1st class.
The location is pretty good too - short drive away from Jasna ski resort or Besenova geothermal pools.
It was amazing stay in GRANDCASTLE LIPTOVSKY HRADOK. We could see almost all castle, it was very good feeling to sleep in castle. Dinner at castle was very delicious and tasty. Wellness at castle is a great way for relaxing and resting, there is a pool, hot tube and sauna. The staff at the castle work at professional level. Accomodation was very nice, spacy and clean. The stay at the castle we will recommend to our friends. I am sure I want stay again at this amazing castle.
thanks a lot for a great weekend at the castle :)
We were warmly welcomed although we arrived after reception closed. Our room n.10 was nice. Their room have very high roof, we saw small spider web, it could be a bit difficult to clean it. We found nice treatment on the desk, complimentary water, tea tray with kettle which can be beneficial especial in winter time. They sell tasty beer ERB. Breakfasts were sufficient. We tasted only two meal from the menu, but both were good and nicely presented. SPA they open in the afternoon which is good after. After we came back from our trip we warmed up us here. SPA is include sauna with restroom, indoor pool, whirlpool. It is worth it. We can strongly recommend the castle.
My room no. 3 overlooked the garden and was full of antiques. High painted ceilings, amazing antique furniture, a desk that I wish to have at home, and a great and comfortable bed with a selection of pillows, that's what made my room really a chateau chamber. The crystal vase with fresh flowers was just the perfect final touch. A marble bathroom with a standing bathtub in which I could not miss to take bath, and through the open window I looked straight out of the tub at the nicely smelling pines, and I just wondered who lived in my room centuries ago. A great and up-to-date gastronomy, which is still difficult to find in Slovakia even in a better hotel, is a matter of course. Excellent breakfast, helpful staff. But what most impressed me was the castle owner, who is constantly present among the guests and interested in their views. During conversation her guests with children came to say goodbye her and she even knew their names. The entire chateau is full of paintings, column clocks, and each piece seemed to have been very carefully chosen. On the way to the pool and the sauna I came across a jasmine tree in the corridor, its scent was so fascinating that I went back several times. Visitors come to see the castle, and in one of the halls you can watch a movie where you can see how the castle with the hotel looked before the reconstruction. I will definitely come back here and thank you for the perfect service.
We have visited the castle for a getaway weekend together with my lovely wife and enjoyed it very much. As the castle is located in the heart of Liptov there is plenty to do, visiting the High or Low Tatras, going for a boat ride on the huge Liptovska Mara lake, visiting one of the great caves or just hanging out on the beautiful castle terrace for a coffee or at the small lake next to it. The castle itself is beautiful with many artefacts like knights armor, various paintings or other decoration that lends it a truly medieval atmosphere. The dining is great, food looks and tastes wonderful and the staff is always happy to help. The jacuzzi is always a welcome addition to a relaxing weekend and together with the pool and sauna next to it we felt really pampered. We would recommend the stay and will definitely return to this great place.
P.S. if youre there be sure to check out the lookout point above the castle, the view is breathtaking!
