Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This hotel is just a couple of kilometers from Plitvice. The room is a good size, the grounds are lovely. Breakfast is very good. Ivan was extremely helpful in so many ways, including directing us to a lovely walk to the river. There is a very good restaurant by the same name right next door.

Friendly staff, excellent service and quality food in a beautiful restaurant. The hotel looks very nice and fully justifies its 4 stars. After such a nice experience, this has become our annual destination 😊. In the vicinity of the hotel itself there is a lot of content as well as the beautiful Plitvice Lakes

We already visited this reastaurant last year while visiting NP Plitvička jezera so we decieded to come back when in Lika. It is quite busy During the lunch time and it might happen you have to vait for a seat, especially arround 2-3 pm. It is good to check and make reservation. We had soups as a starters, beef soup and tomato soup which vere delicious. For main course we had salmon file with potato and arrugola side dish and salad and pork file with prums and bacon with crockets on a side and salad. Salmon was delicious but overal meal was lacking salt (i added some and taste improved significantly) only thing I missed was a bit of acid to comolete it. As for pork file and side dish, I didn't try the pork, but two of my companions said celery pure was not their cup of tea. For me it was nice, celery is a bit strong veggie but I liked it. The waiter was nice and fast, we didn't wait long to get our meals, but we noticed as 2 PM approached that some people did wait as they were crowded. For the dessert we recommed tiramisu and cheese cake. Prices are a bit higher but the portions are quite big and tasty. Value for money in this one for sure. We will come back.

A very comfortable hotel just a few minutes drive north of park entry 1. The room was very comfortable and seemed reasonably priced compared to the park hotels. Prior to dinner we lounged poolside and drinks were served from the bar. The on site restaurant was excellent. Had a good breakfast at the hotel restaurant in the morning and got to the park before the hordes in the tour buses. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Be careful booking from third party sites. Somehow we ended up with two rooms instead of one. I may have made a mistake or there may have been in mix-up when confirming the reservation on the third party site.

We stayed here for one night before a visit to Plitvice Lakes the next day. Given our limited time here, we weren't able to form a huge impression, but we really enjoyed our time. We had our own (rental) car and parking was free and available right next to the hotel. The receptionist, both upon arrival, and another person the next morning, was very friendly and happy to share tips and ideas with us. Our room didn't feel new, but it was comfortable enough and made for a fine evening. The next morning we were perfectly situated for a short drive (about 10 minutes) to Plitvice Lakes for a lovely day at the national park.

Lovely hotel room, nice beds. The swimming pool area looked fab, but unfortunately due to bad weather both days, we were unable to use it! The stand out for this hotel was the receptionist Katarina. She was so friendly and her advice to us about visiting Plitvice Lakes was spot on! She is a real asset to this hotel.

We spent two nights in this lovely welcoming hotel whilst driving around Croatia. The reception staff were friendly and helpful at check in and our rooms were ready early which was great. The hotel and grounds are all impeccably clean and well maintained, the pool area was great to relax in the afternoons and the Plum restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The food was some of the best we’ve had in Croatia. The beds are comfortable and despite being close to the road were quiet and we all slept really well. The breakfast is served from 7 and was a good variety and fresh. We wish we were staying an extra night to partake in the plentiful amount of local activities. We based ourselves here for easy access to entrance 1 of Plitvice Lakes which were amazing as well. A big thank you to all the staff who made our stay so special.
