Wonderful experience! We stayed there for 3 nights in October and relished our experience in this lovely, renovated 14th century Teutonic Knights castle. The building and its grounds are worth exploring. The hotel has 4 themed wings (Knight’s, the Commander’s, Prison’s and Hunter’s) and the corridors and rooms are filled with little details from its past history. The great Dziedziniec hall is reminiscent of its past with its banners, flags and emblems and it leaves you with the impression of what it must have been like when the Knights used the castle. All around the hotel, the red brick walls, suits of armour, weapons, wooden beams, arches, gothic portals, chandeliers, wooden doors and military features that adorn the castle’s corridors and rooms all set the lovely medieval ambience and feel of the place.

We had a corner bedroom on the 4th floor of the Knight’s wing (room 415) with windows on 2 sides showing views of one of the lakes and of the village. It had upright wooden beams inside the room that give the authentic feel of the place and the bedroom was separated from the living area by a dividing wall. It was spacious, comfortable and warm. The bathroom was also spacious and clean.

We ate at the hotel’s Refectory Restaurant on 2 of the nights and the food and service were excellent. Fine dining with very good wines, polite, experienced and attentive staff, complimented by the gothic ambience of the red brick walls and arches. A truly exquisite culinary experience!

Breakfast was also served here and there was a very good range of food items to choose from plus a station for omelettes, scrambled eggs or crepes. The staff, especially the lady in charge at breakfast time, was very helpful.

Do find time to go to the spa with its indoor pool and lovely setting of brick walls, arches, fireplace and waterfall. The girl at the spa counter was also very helpful. Wifi is free and the signal was very good in all areas. There is ample parking space within the grounds for a daily fee of 20 Polish Zloty. A visit to the winery in the castle basement is also worth doing to have a drink and relax after the day. There is also a separate building within the grounds with a gym, bowling and virtual golf, but we didn’t explore these.

The people staffing the reception desk all spoke English and were very helpful with all our queries and requests. On our first night they rectified a small problem with the bed immediately so the response was prompt and appreciated. The setting in the reception area itself is also lovely with the great black cross on the floor as soon as you enter through the automated wooded doors that creak open whenever you enter or leave.

Our stay at this hotel was an incredible and truly gratifying experience in many ways. All the staff deserves praise for their hospitality, the quality of the service and food is excellent, the room was comfortable and the castle ambience is wonderful. It’s a pity that we didn’t have time to explore even more of the castle and its facilities.

Room Tip: Room 415 is a 4th floor corner room with views of the lake and village. Spacious, bathroom was clean...

Ryn Castle hotel is restored from the 14th century of the Teutonic Knights. It is a once in a lifetime experience to be thrown back into history in a stunning setting. Our room was very comfortable and completely upgraded. The food and dining areas are lovely and buffet breakfast was delicious. We were there in October, so couldn't enjoy the lake activities, but the walks around the area were wonderful. The Spa with a small swimming pool, steam room and sauna was a welcome retreat after a day of sightseeing. Note: Do not visit the artifacts of torture prior to bedtime!

Room Tip: We had a handicapped accessible room. I would ask for a room with a view of the lakes.

My husband and I and other couple have visited castle in June. We were staying in mill as there was no rooms left in the castle. This turns out to be a great choice as we had a stunning views at the lake and very quiet rooms. If you prefer a silent room choose mill you won't be disappointed. Pool is small but really nice and sauna is a great too. Breakfast was very tasty and you could choose from so many different options. All in all great stay and lovely service.

A restored castle from the Tectonic knights era which is very impressive at first glance. The restoration is done very well but is spoilt by the use of plastic wood for decorative effects. However, the general impression still leaves you with a Wow reaction.
We dined here and enjoyed the best food of our stay in Poland and it was very reasonably priced so we would be keen to stay here if we return in the future.

I have some mixed feelings about the Ryn Hotel. Our stay there was nice although I didn't like the tacky (plastic) background. As a history major, I found it highly anti-climatic and unfit for a **** Hotel. Same goes with the tacky costumes that you could wear as a part of the program. Synthetic fabrics and modern tailoring doesn't really show how "medieval" clothing was like.

The nice touch was the swimming pool so even when the weather was bad, we could always go swimming there, although the pool could be a bit bigger.

The food was really nice but the coffee was disgusting and staff had problems with the coffee machines.

All in all I enjoyed our stay there but I would say it was more like a *** Hotel focused on families with children, rather than **** SPA Hotel.
