Spacious suites and intimate saloons, thick walls and gracious arches - our guests will enjoy the authentic atmosphere of a renaissance castle, while being pampered in the highest comfort of modern times. The design concept is the same: century-old wooden parts are perfectly matched with polished surfaces, traditional textiles feel soft and silky, yet every room promises a distinct experience.
All our rooms are non-smoking, equipped with free cable internet and TV, and feature high quality bathroom amenities, slippers and a hairdryer. To make your stay even more memorable, choose one of our 3 superior rooms: The Swan Suite and Castle Gate Room featuring a fireplace, or the Constantinople Room with an open bathroom and 17th century wall-paintings. Superior rooms come with king-size double beds, standard rooms can be arranged as twin or double upon request. We welcome disabled guests in the Lodging of Olasztelek. Our standard check-in time is 14:00, check-out at 12:00. If available we’ll gladly arrange flexible check-out times so you can enjoy the whole day in the beautiful area of the Land of Woods.
Immerse yourself in the everydays of traditional Transylvania. Admire authentic craftmanship at the wood-carving and furniture- painting Suto family, experience art emerging from the fire at the local blacksmith, or discover the long- forgotten craft of saddling. During the walk you can quench your thirst with palinka (fruit brandy) and natural fruit syrup, and enjoy some home-made “kurtoskalacs” (Transylvanian cake speciality) after tasting the “blacksmith’s bites”. Optionally, the tour can be made by bicycles.
Our menu features the finest of Transylvanian recipes reinterpreted according the culinary exigencies of the 21st century. As exquisite food deserves an exceptional wine, we will serve each course with the perfect match from our selection of Romanian and Hungarian wines.
Did you know that the world’s most complete Mastodon Anancus skeleton was found oly 6 km from us? We start our Prehistoric off-road tour visiting the 2,5 million year old skeleton in the Museum of Erdovidek, then we drive through the deserted land of the coal-mine where it was found. A true lunar landscape awaits the visitor in Alsorakos, where you can visit the prehistoric crater, the basalt columns and the Emerald lake.
Historic research revealed that in the 17th century the upper floor of the castle was one huge ballroom, where “weddings used to last whole week long under the supervision of the Daniels”- as old documents mention. A renaissance wedding is also depicted in one of the 17th century wall-paintings that we recently renovated.
You step back in time and can experience the bygone splendour of castle balls in our Renaissance feast.
