Few kilometres from Novo mesto on the top of the hill, hotel and restaurant is situated. Large terrace with nice views over landscape. Fresh food, good taste, moderate prices. Be carefull, plates are really big.
We were in restaurant twice. The first time it was all good, the food was tasty, and we got it very fast, we had gnocchi and pizza. The second time we had pasta with meat and mushrooms. Staff was nice, but the food was without flavor, pasta was overcooked, so was meat, there was no salt in it. We expected better food for the price we payed.
Restaurant offers self-service lunch, where beef soup could survive with less water and more beef. severale main courses where tasty, but I missed few more side dishes (they offer only potatoe). Self-service salat bar was poor for such good restaurant knowing that it does not require a lot of efforts. Some side dishes were constantly missing and they needed too much time for replacement. It is a pity that minor errors did not allow better experience.
+ The hotel is located next to the highway. It has a large and very good restaurant suited for big groups. There are 15 bedrooms in the hotel. The room was nice with a very comfortable bed. Friendly staff with good advice on things to do and see in the area. Good breakfast buffet. -. Hotel makes a rather busy impression with loud music in the entrance hall (coming from the bar and entertainment area). The music was also a bit loud in the breakfast area and the big tables are rather suited for groups than for couples.
The place is pretty new and it has an excellent position, very close to the highway. Otočec castle and the town of Novo Mesto are nice places to see, only a few minutes drive from here. Rooms are spacious and clean, but there is no way to stop the sunlight from coming in, as the curtains (if present) are useless. We basically couldn’t sleep after 5.30 am. Don’t ever settle for room 101, as it on the stairs and so you will hear everybody going up and down for breakfast and checking in/out (the reception is right at the bottom of the stairs). WiFi is free but very bad.
