Hidden gem of the beaten track
Posted May 21, 2008
This hotel probably doesn't look quite as grand when you arrive, as it does in the photo's you see of it (although it does still look lovely). Inside it is very beautiful and our room in the main house was stunning and luxurious (big ceiling height, very spacious, huge bed, jacuzzi bath, seperate shower, etc.). The food in the Restaurant was good without being exceptional. It felt a little bit old-fashioned (e.g. in terms of presentation) and had too many Polish specialities for the more cautious palette. The staff were friendly and helpful. As of May 2008 the pool was out of action and this was dissappointing. The new annexe looked very standard and therefore I would definitely pay the extra few pounds to stay in the house. The hotel is on the road from Krakow to Auschwitz and therefore is a good place to stay if you are making that trip by car. However, as of May 2008 there are a huge number of roadworks along that road and on the Krakow by-pass so allow plenty of time for travel.
