Pros: Otocec is a lovely castle hotel an easy drive from Ljubliana. The setting on its own island is a delight, our room (a junior suite) was spacious, the bathroom the best of any hotel in our 2-week trip. They boast about their restaurant, and it is not exaggerated.
Cons: There are no negatives about the hotel itself, but if one were staying for a longer time than we did and looking for variety in restaurants, the hotel is not close to any town of note so options would be limited. But the hotel restaurant is of such high quality that eating there twice was for us completely acceptable.
Pros: Back in the time, with luxury in the surrounding in a romantic landscape and excellent cuisine!
Pros: Extremely friendly and helpful staff. The room was lovely and was exactly was I expected. I only stayed one night so I couldn't visit the surroundings, but what I saw made me want to come back.
Cons: The food was good enough, but not as good as I expected in a hotel of this standard (I have very high expectations, so most people should find the restaurant excellent).
