Accommodation has good standard, clean, functional. Wifi working well. The location is very nice in countryside, however, quite a bit of noice from the road if window open. The food - both in restaurant and the breakfasts are delightful. Enjoyed every bit of that. Great...service overall. Must give good mention for EV charging options. Perfect there.More

Mmmmm! :) Ambient outside in the park is lovely, great atmosphere and music! Owner who was taking care of us was really nice and recommended great plates. Roasted leg of veal was really delicious, so were appetizers, soup and desert! Must visit :)

The best way to get to know top Slovenian cuisine based on home-made, organic, locally produced food. The prices are very reasonable. You need to book a visit.

My girlfriend and I are traveling in the Dolenjska region for a couple of days. As Trip Advisor advised, we went for dinner at this lovely place. Even though we did not have a reservation, they managed to squeeze us in. The service was very...friendly, the food arrived as expected and everything was simply amazing, worth every penny. We had a cold appetizzer that we shared, mushroom soup, and a main meal. Sadly we were too full to eat a dessert, but will stop again in the following days.More
