“Superb authentic country manor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

It is a great place to go if you are looking for the experience of staying in a renovated country manor, that is set in lush grounds, and offers an excellent dinning experience! The rooms are decorated in the antique fashion, and since we stayed in the Hunter's suite had an animal theme. The decor is not my favorite, and I thought the bed could be a bit more comfortable. But the bathroom was a luxurious size with a nice tub! There was also a small spa center downstairs, that was ok for a quick morning swim and sauna. The best part of the experience was the restaurant! The beef carpaccio is to die for! The lamb kebab was also superb! They work with local farmers, so everything is grown near by and super fresh! Yum!

Splendid interiors with an engaging collection of contemporary paintings, antique furniture and fireplaces. Rooms furnished very tastefully. A leisurely boat trip on the picturesque lake nearby is a must. Generous breakfast consisting of local quality foods. Perfect romantic getaway in Latvia

"Must see" place! Not only as a hotel. If you wish to feel living in palace (like Rundales Palace in Latvia or Schonbrunn Palace in Vienna, just smaller).
Hotel located abt 100km (62 miles) from Riga.
Very fresh and clean. Main building furnished with antique/luxury furniture. Even if it is antique, there is a feeling that its brand new (no feeling of old furniture). Rooms......well....you have to see it to believe - really cozy and rich feeling. In the same time not big.
Manor barn buiding - standart modern double rooms. Also clean and stuffed as for **** hotel.
Restaurant - just higher class chef and personell. Meal - exscellent. Nothing to add...just great.
Pictures on their site (http://diklupils.lv/en/) are realistic and reflects actual view of hotel and insides. So you can believe that what you see on pictures are almost the same what you will see in real life.

Excellent place for:
a)Romantic escape
b)small conference
c)business meeting
d)luxury party or special event celebration with friends/business partners

Stayed here for a weekend away with he girlfriend. It was a mere 35 mins from Riga Central Station to Valmiera, then another 20 mins in a taxi (!5 Lats) or you could walk if luggage isn't an issue..!!! The location is in a small village literally in the middle of nowhere. A fully restored muiza, the main building is a delight to walk around, with ornaments and traditional fire places adorning most rooms. It seems the ideal seting for a summer wedding, with an adjoining lake and gardens. The room was modern and clean. The restaurant was certainly a surprise with some excellent food on offer, and all included in our weekend price, except extra for the wine. Walking around the area is pleasant, but there isn't much to see, just beautiful countryside... The staff at the manor were pleasant and attentive to say the least. A morning swim followed by a sauna were an added bonus, plus the use of the full spa facilities, at an extra cost, but all well below the average prices to be paid back home. Above all a great place to spend a romantic quiet weekend away.

Great experience, if you are looking for an oasis of relaxation in the middle of the countryside. A well refurbished old manor with a well maintained park garden and numerous halls and studies. We didn't have a chance to try the Spa but it certainly looked luxurious.
Service was competent and given with a smile, not a given thing in Latvia.

An absolute gem of a hotel in the depths of the Latvian countryside. Stay in the middle of the week as it is quieter - no parties, weddings, etc. Their website is very good at describing what you can expect from your stay and the photos represent reality rather than being stylised. The swimming pool and jaccuzi are good. Just watch your step, as it gets very slippery walking from the pool area to the saunas. Food was excellent for lunch and evening meals, however breakfasts were lousy in our opinion.
Dikli is the birthplace of the Latvian song festival, however there isn't much to look at in relation to this fact. The village church is quaint. Dikli palace building itself is interesting. The owners had saved a lot of old ornate stoves/fragments of stoves and restored them to full glory. Most are in working order. Simply beautiful!
It's about 30 to 40 minutes by car to the seaside. And about the same to the town of Valmiera, but in the opposite direction.
Go to escape the noise of the city life, relax, read, enjoy a swim (additional cost). Be prepared for terrible roads to get there though.
Customer service is outstanding! We felt pampered and very well looked after throughout the stay. Loved every minute of our stay!
