“Great service, Great Pool”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

The hotel is very nice and the staff is very helpful. The pool area is amazing. It came in very handy as it rained one of the days we were there. The breakfast buffet was wonderful. I was a little disappointed in the area itself. We were not able to take the horse and carriage ride through the park because it had rained and the horses would sink into the mud. We were with my mother who cannot walk very well so we were at a bit of a loss for things to do. If you are able to walk or bike through the park, it is probably a nice area, but this did not apply to us. If you are in the area, you must eat at the Carska restaurant about 5 minutes from the hotel.

We did not stay in the hotel overnight, but we used their restaurant for dining and it was a great experience! We ate game and it was prepared perfectly and taste was delicious. But apart from the excellent work of the cook, service was the best I have ever experienced. Arriving to the outside deck with the dog we were invited to dine inside with the dog allowed sitting next to out table. Perhaps because it was a hunting dog ;) Person serving us that evening was extremely friendly and showed perfect manners. If only all waiters were like this, It could be heaven... For the high professionalism of service in the restaurant, I highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Good food, great service - you will feel like a VIP!

The rooms were clean, we had tea making facilities and air con. The general ambience is gloomy. Lighting in corridors, reception and dining room is very poor. Breakfast was very good and dinners were typical of the region, I suspect, wild boar, venison, perch and duck (the latter was delicious by the way) all served with potatoes. It was OK for 4 days - had we been there for 2 weeks we might have been struggling with the menu! Having stuffed animals staring at you whilst you ate their descendants didn't add any joy either!
Had to pay for parking on the first night as there was a function on and the car park was full but after that managed to park for free in the limited spaces available. Mosquitos were biting after the rain and I would advise taking Deet from home as it might not be readily available in Poland. Location is great -petrol station was just up the road and several small shops for milk etc. Main purpose of the trip was bird watching, and this was fairly easy although you have to be up at 5.30 for best birding.

Staff were a bit dour but we found this to be the case wherever we went in Poland and when asked for something they were not unhelpful. Not much English spoken anywhere and no translations of road signs, warning signs etc. Couldn't have coped without the sat nav

Generally it seems that this the best option in Bialowieza. I took advantage of the off-season and have chosen the suite. Couldnt find any reason why the price was double in comparison to a regular room. The sport facilites are OK but if you feel like swimming (not staying in jacuzzi with kids running around) or sauna dont expect too much. Cant understand why hotel charges for the parking and prices in restaurant are comparable with Warsaw...

Anyway, good location still cant find better place there and very good breakfast. Funny staff in restaurant however I am not sure if everyone would enjoy sense of humor....

The hotel is adequate, not more. Zubrowka is located in the centre of Bialowieza village near the border of White Russia. The park, natural history museum and the famous forest, all are at walking distance. Staffs are friendly and helpful.

The hotel is build in the late seventies and expanded in recent booming years, facilities include a children’s playground, restaurant, bar and spa. The interior of the hotel is impressively tasteless. In the dining room the heads of large hunted animals peer down at you. The food is traditional, breakfast was OK, and dinner was far from impressive.

Hotel parking costs extra, while parking in the adjacent streets is free. Zubrowka is an average hotel. We had a large room high up in the attic, nicely furnished, clean and it had a comfortable bed. No coffee facilities in the room. The spa facility is adequate with sauna and showers, we did not take any massage or beauty treatment.

Bicycles are for rent next door and cycling in the woods near the border is nice (take anti-mosquito repellent).

Nice Spa hotel offering delicious food (regional one is worth to try). Room was extremely large wi-fi works OK. The interior of hotel is impressive with plenty of facilities for various people( playground for children, bar and nightclub, swimming pool and Spa). I was there in the winter and the surrounding is simple unforgeable withe all the nature coming to you directly

Reviewed 29 September 2010

we came to see the protected forest with a 3yo, 5yo and a grandmother. we stayed in the presidential suite which gave us space but was nothing amazing. however the pool was and it was great to play with the kids after a day out and about especially as the pool has all the fancy jets including one from the roof and two spa baths which were not too hot for kids.
the hotel arrrange a horse and cart to see the bison park (we didn't have a car and came by train) and also a guide to the forest who was fantastic. you can hire bike buggies for the kids from a guy across the road. The breakfast was great but dinner was a litte lacking in atmosphere so head to the restuarant under the natural history muesum which is lovely (also the posher place across the road is lovely too)
