    Good Value for Money”
    Not very close to the beach area, but if you are traveling by car, no issues to reach any nearby area within a few minutes. Good value for money, if you need a simple place to sleep.

    Really Enjoyed It”
    Location, Staff, Atmosphere
    I wanted to go somewhere remote and get away for the weekend, and this was perfect. It's about a fifteen, twenty minute cab ride from the Gangneung Bus Terminal, and it's a giant beautiful European style castle on a hill. The owner is a very kind man who gave me a ride when I needed it to get to the attractions and helped me get a taxi on my last day. The room was a single and was really nice, had cool lighting options, and the bed was super comfy. The area it's in has some great restaurants and hiking and beach scenery, so if you're looking to run away for the weekend this place is perfect. Super nice owner and super chill stay. There's no Food at the moment, but it's said there will be in the future.

    Amazing Value”
    1. Hotel management 2. Large room for the money 3. Fantastic service
    Our 1st night was so nice, we decided to stay another night. The room was warm, clean and large for the price. Best of all, the owner/manager bent over backwards to make our stay very enjoyable. When one of our party lost their credit card, he helped us make the international call to the CC company to cancel the card. Although the hotel is not within walking distance to town, the owner/manager drove us back/forth to/from town (about a 5 min drive). The hotel is like a European castle out in the countryside. I would recommend it to anyone who is value concious and appreciates great service. Thanks to the owner/manager for a great stay!!

    This is the worse hotel I ever seen before”
    The boss is nice
    It's the worse hotel that I have ever seen before. It nears to a graveyard and got the pig smell. Its so inconvenience for the transport. Even the taxi driver also does not have idea where this hotel is and have to ask police. For the goodness sake, the police also don't know this place. IT'S THE WORST EXPERIENCE EVER IN MY LIFE. not only that, the staffs do not know how to speak English at all!

    Quiet, remote, and Pricey for the location. ”
    It is remote, away from traffic. The vegetation surrounding this motel makes it feel like it is in the middle of a national park. The negs: ac was off, area surrounding had fowl sewer stench.
    It was hot as ac was off until July, which made it uncomfortable. Expensive for a budget motel with no ac

    It was worth the money, however not very sanitary.”
    Quiet, secluded, & friendly staff.
    The stay was ok. The staff were nice and the room was clean. The bathroom had a lot of mold and the shower system didn't work right. The bed was very hard and unforgiving. The TV had some channels that were in english which was nice for me. My biggest complant would be the upkeep of the property. Lot of broken items and fixtures that distracts from the beauty of the castle and its grounds.

    Clean rooms, beautiful surroundings, attentive staff
    Had a very comfortable stay at White Castle Resort. Quiet surroundings, close to nature. Clean rooms and attentive staff. However, wifi is only available in the lobby area. Also, the location of the hotel is really inconvenient unless you are driving. That said, the hotel owner was really kind to drive us to a nearby restaurant for dinner on our first night, and also drove us out in the wee hours of the morning to catch the sunrise!

    Great surroundings, Clean rooms
    Stay was very comfortable. Rooms were clean and neat. Hotel is located away from the city ... but easy to access by car(20 mins from city).. the view from rooms are a delight.. surrounded by hills and trees.. it is more like a hotel in a jungle...a different experience.. Another thing.. no breakfast options available but there are few Korean restaurants (5 mins by car)... a little tough if you are vegetarian.. but that is the case in entire Korea.. !! All in all.. a pleasant stay..

    It's really a white castle! ”
    This place is very quiet. They have some rooms cater for family gathering. There is a group of people staying during my stay at White Castle. I can see that they are really enjoyed so much!
    I understand now why the resort is called “White Castle”. The view of the Castle is stunning when it’s cover by the snow. I am so blessed to see the whole castle turning white when I was there on 4 Jan 2014. Such a gorgeous place to stay. Not regretted for staying there even though it’s a bit far from the Gangneung city centre (about 15 mins away). Mr Kim, who claimed he’s not the boss, speaks very little English but he’s very nice and we approached him to call for taxi, he offered to send us out when he’s free. Costs of taxi about KRW10,000 to Gangneung inter-city bus terminal, outside the Tourism Board.

    Cool hotel, nice rooms, and excellent price!”
    Location was great, price was great, and the hotel was well designed.
    We had a wonderful stay at the White Castle Resort. We traveled with a young child, and he the room and extra twin bed offered were perfect. You almost have to have a car, though, because the hotel is located well into the country, with out many services or restaurants near by. A few public beaches are about 10 minutes away, but the major beaches in Gangneung-si, as well as many restaurants, are 20 - 30 mins away by car.

    Family seaside visit”
    Our room had a great tub. And it was thoughtful of the staff to bring additional bedding for the kids to sleep on the floor (and at no extra cost).
    It was an average place to stay. Our biggest complaint is that on the site it advertised a private beach and indoor pool. It had neither. It was at least fifteen or twenty minutes to the beach! There are some amazing towns nearby, but had we known we would have stayed in those to be closer to the sea. Another thing we were disappointed with is our check in. We finally found the place and when we walked in no one was at the desk. We rang the bell and waited for fifteen minutes. When the man finally came he didn't say anything. Just took our paperwork and gave us a key. We had to ask him where the room was. He finally walked us to it. The room itself was fine. We had a great weekend and it worked out, but we were really sad about ning having the private beach.
