Spent one night at Ice Hotel as part of a 4 night break with Secret Transylvania who were a fantastic holiday company - nothing was too much trouble.
The Ice Hotel was a chilly experience but I slept well as I dressed appropriately and there were sleeping bags and covers provided.
Very interesting to see the ice sculptures in the rooms of the hotel, bar, church and igloos - it was all very well done in a glorious setting of deep white snow and blue sunny skies.
Secret Transylvania was based in the nearby village of Cisnadioara, run by Jez and Di, a lovely english couple.
Their accommodation was very clean and comfortable and the bar and dining room were warm and welcoming.
The food freshly prepared by Di was absolutely delicious, taking into account the guests likes and dislikes and the portion sizes were extra large. Nobody was hungry at any time.
Jez was very interesting and knowledgeable about the local area and the many places of interest we visited.
He had a very easygoing manner, driving us to the various locations, letting us decide how long we wished to stay at each place.
Both Di and Jez welcomed us to Transylvania like friends and looked after us wonderfully which was very much appreciated as I was a solo traveller/OAP.
Secret Transylvania certainly deserve the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. I cannot praise them highly enough !
