This hotel stay was a lovely surprise. Easy parking and a lovely hillside location with well kept grounds made for a good first impression. The hotel is still new and has all the mod cons you can think of. The rooms were nice and spacious. We had a room with a patio area where we could watch the stars. The... More

We stayed here for one night to visit the Plitvice Lakes. After our flight from NYC and drive from Zagreb, we arrived at Degenija. It is clearly marked on the roads and was easy. The gentleman that checked us in was very welcoming and helpful. We told him we were planning to visit the lakes for a couple of hours... More

About five miles north of the park on the main road, this lodging facility/restaurant was very good. Front desk staff were well trained and professional. They mapped out a suggested plan for visiting the park based on our timeframes. We stayed in the "B&B" associated with the hotel. There is also a restaurant just a few paces down a path.... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights to see the Plitvice Lakes on our honeymoon. To congratulate us on the occasion the staff provided petals and a congratulatory note on the bed and brought us a small bottle of sparkling wine. The room we stayed in was spacious, clean and very comfortable, which you need after an active... More

Hotel was close to Plitvice, the main reason for booking as we had driven from Zagreb and was actually on the way, about 7 km from lake entrance. Hotel was spotless and rooms were reasonable size, but nothing special. Breakfast had a huge variety of choices and was included in the room price - basically something for everyone and replenished... More

An excellent hotel very close to entrance 1 of the lakes. We checked in and had a pleasant surprise with the fantastic triple room with its tasteful decor. The bathroom was great, clean and we were happy to have both a bath tub and shower. The beds were exceptionally comfortable. Upon check in we were advised to make a booking... More

Perfect location if you are seeing the waterfalls. It's about a 4 minute drive. The staff was great and accommodating. The restaurant stayed open late so we could eat when we arrived. Very clean and modern. We'll above my expectations. Breakfast was included as well.

Great small hotel, which provided a perfect base from which to visit The Plitvice National Park. We stayed for two nights at the end of July. The staff were very welcoming on our arrival and most helpful during our stay. The rooms were spacious, clean and well-presented. The beds were extremely comfortable. Staff in Caffe Plum were charming. Breakfast was... More

Mixed feelings about this hotel. Generally it was good - rooms were clean and decently decorated, we had a powerful shower (a key measure for me), there was a pleasant cafe/breakfast area which was half outdoors, and the staff were friendly (hunting down some snacks for me although they don't normally provide). However some aspects limit my rating.... - the... More
