“Good food, Good host”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012 via mobile

We popped in for a meal after a huge day out and about walking. For the meat eaters among us there was great options, for the veggies the options where a little limited but still tasty and not bread or pasta based. It is a pleasant little place and the host was really nice, he even served us a complimentary blueberry schnapps after our meal - cant go wrong!

Stayed May 2012, traveled with friends

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2011

Stayed at the apartment above the restaurant for 7 days in Aug 2011.
The rooms are spacious, high ceilinged and cool, easily able to accommodate 5 in comfort and are located 200 yards from the lake shore
The Gostilna is family run, and the staff could not be more helpful or hospitable.
Cooking facilities are limited, ( 2 rings, no grill or microwave), but you are living above a restaurant.
It would probably help if you were a sound sleeper: the hostel across the road can be lively until 1 am and the menagerie next door is awake with the dawn, neither of which is in the control of the Gostilna staff.
Still and all, a peasant apartment with friendly hosts in a lovely place

I agree with everything in the 2008 review about the appartment. The restaraunt is my favourite in Bled and I visit for lunch or dinner whenever I visit the town. Nothing better to sit on the terrace and have a beer with Josef after participating in one of the many family activities in and around around bled

Gostilna means Guesthouse and owner Josef and his two sons will make you an extremely welcome guest. Hospitality is rife in Slovenia and the Murka Inn at Bled is no different. The two bedroomed apartment which my wife and I shared was huge, very well equipped, exceptionally clean and virtually brand new.

Ok, so the shower is hand held and there isn't a curtain (yet), but there is more storage space in these two rooms than I have experienced anywhere else. You could take enough clothes for a month and still have some empty drawers and cupboards.

The kitchen boasts two hotplates, but there isn't an oven. But then, why would you want one? Downstairs is one of the best restaurants in Bled. Apart from exceptional food, there's a good selection of wines and the prices are more than reasonable.

Eat inside or out and enjoy typical Slovenian dishes cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. The words 'rustic charm' are often used to describe something which is old and slightly run down, not so Gostilna Murka. It is an impressive old building with magnificent modern facilities.

You can't see Lake Bled from the terrace where you can enjoy an evening beer, but you're not paying 'best view' prices either. The lake is in fact literally a five minute walk away and, very importantly, there's free parking right outside. The town centre is less than a kilometre away.

Downsides? If I were really picky, the stairs up to the apartment are a little steep, but it's an old building. I'm over 60 and carried my case up.

The Murka Inn is an all year round venue in a beautiful part of Slovenia and everyone there speaks perfect English. Call in and tell Josef I said "Doberdan" and "Hvala" for such a great visit.

  • Liked — Clean, spacious, friendly, excellent food and location
