The Wellness hotel Lihovar comprises a number of facilities that provide a great variety of services ranging from a restaurant and hotel services to wellness area and massages.

The premises consist of several buildings and were originally used as a distillery. Nowadays, after being newly reconstructed, the buildings serve as a restaurant and a wellness hotel which offers manifold opportunities for people who look for a passive and an active holiday in the Zelezne Mountains region.

The history of the main building can be traced back to the second half of the 19th century. The main building was made of bricks and stones and its brick stack, its dominant feature, serves as a landmark for the nearest surroundings and becomes a part of the countryside. Another outstanding feature is the groundfloor with arched brick ceilings which are supported by sandstone columns. There are two other buildings adjacent to the main building. The first one was used as an administrative building while the other one housed a storeroom for spirit.

Throughout its history the distillery did not produce spirit only. In the second half of the 20th century there were feeding blends made here, and even later there were champignons grown. In the late 1990´s the distillery was eventually closed down and started to decay. Later on, since it was in good technical conditions there originated a renovation project designed to prevent the buildings from further dilapidating. As a result, the SRC Lihovar, Ltd., was founded in 2007 which initiated the reconstruction of the above-mentioned property. The project was co-financed by the European Union (Regional Operational Programme Severovychod II). In 2008 the storeroom for spirit was made into a salt cave, in 2009 the administrative building was changed into a pizza restaurant.

The reconstruction of the main building finished in June, 2013. Not only earlier, but also now the  premises belong to the most interesting buildings in the town.
