“Good for the area”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

Have stayed twice now for work events.

Firstly, the hotel is quite new, but alreay there is some wear in the rooms with slightly chipping paint etc. Enoough parking and check in was quick.

Rooms are clean but found them to be really hot with no way of moderating the temperature. Had to open the window for a few minutes during the evening and this wa sthe middle of Winter. Should really be sorted out.

Had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. Food was quite good and wine by the glass (Riesling) was tasty and good value. Breakfast had more choice than expected with scrambled and fried eggs, numerouse meats and plenty of cold food options.

Would use again for work.

Great location for every season, ski in winter, trek in summer. Nice atmosphere, good kitchen, rooms are also very nice. You will definitely not make failure with this choice. Donovaly is one from most beautiful part of Low Tatras.

Reviewed 10 March 2013

I was there for 4 days this week with my family and in contrary to the actual review, I would like to soften the actual review by sharing our experience.
1. Nice hotel, clean rooms and the apartment has a good standing.
2. Be extremely careful with the reservation process , despite , 4 phone calls and numerous email with booking confirmation , at arrival we had no reservation. Instead of apologies we got the message “oh my colleague forgot” yeah right who cares!
3. For most the staffs is nice and helpful however good morning is not part of the staff language or too difficult to use.
4. Now comes the restaurant, please run away from this place if you expect a decent meal. The staff is trying to provide a good service but it seems they use the gardener as a chief in the kitchen. So bad that my wife found a plastic cap in the mustard at breakfast

Overall nice hotel but overpriced for the service you get and far away from a 4 star hotel.

A very nice hotel located in the heart of Donovaly. The rooms are comfortable, clean and of a good size. The residence lounge is relaxing and sells well priced food and drinks. The hotel is a 200m easy walk from the main ski slopes.

New **** hotel in beautiful area in Low Tatras in classic-modern style. I experienced excellent service. I would recommend this place as a good base for Low Tatras touristic or conference in very nice area in Slovakia. In winter you can ski, rest of the year is perfect for walking, cycling, golf or spa.
