Sanctuary. Refugium. Hideaway. Escape.

Various names for the same concept. At time we all wish to hide, retreat or escape, looking to find a sanctuary or refuge, from the monotony of the everyday.

Some may fly to relax at a resort in the Maldives, some may flee to live slow in a small town in Tuscany where time appears to have stopped, others trek into the heart of Africa to experience the might and wonder of the Victoria Falls, while yet others retreat to the ceaseless hustle of a bistro at a boulevard in Paris. During my youth I enjoyed leaving the rush of Prague and retreating to the isolation of the Broumov Region and the awesome ancient tranquillity of the Adršpach-Teplice Rocks. Today our aim is to allow our guests to enjoy the experience as well. If you are from Czechia or a neighbouring region, you will not even need to book a flight or make complicated plans; nor will you need a gold card. All you need is a full tank of fuel or a train ticket. In just a few hours you can be measuring up to Immanuel Kant’s “apparent almightiness of nature” from the comforting sanctuary which our hotel provides. You can take refuge in one of our individually styled rooms, situated in a historic mill dating all the way back to the 18th Century. You can replenish your energy at our restaurant with a glass of chilled Veuve Cliquot, or if it suits your tastes a shot of something stronger. Whatever suits your fancy. When you stay with us you can let your hair down and drop the everyday persona. You can order the goulash, or the caviar bliny, the Krkonoše mushroom soup or the juniper lamb roast. Enjoy the local fresh bread for breakfast and head out to explore the Rocks. You can head out on foot, or on a bike – both trails lead right by our hotel. In the winter take out your cross-country skis or enjoy a bit of downhill skiing in the nearby Teplice nad Metují. Or you can simply drive to one of the many interesting destinations in the wider and magical land that is the Broumov Region. We would be delighted to help you pick just the right type of adventure. We look forward to meeting you soon.
