Welcome to our heritage hotel. The only hotel of this categorization in Northwestern Croatia. It was the home of the famous writer and politician Ksaver Šandor Gjalski, real name Ljubomil Tito Josip Franjo Babić, and was built at the end of the 18th century.

Gredice, the place where the castle is located and Gjalski became synonymous, the embodiment of the spirit of Hrvatsko Zagorje, life in castles and manors of the last century.

It has been a prominent family since the 16th century, from which a famous judge, several Zagreb canons, the court chancellor and other high officials come.

On their estate Gubaševečki had a wooden kurija(Building). Gjalski was born in Gredice 1854 and there he died in 1935.
