Our room was spacious, clean, nice, well equipped. Breakfast offered local ingredients. The location is close to the major highway - useful to travellers coming by a car. It is not really close to the city center, but there is a bus going pretty often....Some elements in the room were more about design than usefulness: e.g. a seethrough bathroom wall.More

Delicious food, very professional service and nice interior. Lešnik is the perfect Restaurant for a good lunch or dinner, as well for family gatherings.

I brought my parents to Lesnik for Sunday lunch. My parents eat traditional Slovenian food and I am vegetarian. My husband likes contemporary cuisine, and is not vegetarian. Lesnik was able to meet all our needs with tasty meals that are made with local ingredients...and seasonal such as mushroom soup, pumpkin soup, and main dishes such as veal medallions, struklji and pork medallions and a great pumpkin risotto for me. The salad bar was fresh and appealing. Wine recommendations were good. Take a local rumeni muskat as a dessert wine: it went great with desserts. The bill was surprisingly low for the quality of service and food.More

I and my wife were on our way from Croatia to Poland and I decided to stop in Maribor as we had always passed that city hurrying back home or to our holiday destination. It was a great decision. Maribor is a beautiful town with...a lot to offer and I can recommend it to anyone. But the story was to be about Motel and Gostilna Pri Lesniku. I thought it was an average place good enough to sleep but nothing special to speak about. What a mistake did I make! We arrived quite early in the morning as we had left Pula at 5 o'clock in the morning in fear of a huge traffic jam at theCroatian - Slovenian border. It was a good decision. So here we are in the motel Pri Lesniku and we are greeted by one of the nicest waiters we had ever met. Although it was only 10 in the morning our room was prepared first while we were offered coffee and breakfast. The man, who appeared a nephew of the owner recommended places to visit and how to get to the town and where to park. He helped with the luggage and was extremely professional. The room was really comfortable and big. I had never expected that. After we came back from the town and relaxed for a while we went to eat our dinner to the motel restaurant. Fortunately we did not order starters because the main courses we got were huge. And the size of them was not used to cover the minuses of the cuisine. I took baked octopus with vegetables and it was one of the best I had ever eaten. Soft and crunchy, juicy and full of flavour. Chefs should come to learn how to prepare octopus to that Gostilna. Marvellous!My wife took regional chicken strips in pumpkin seeds and they were delicious. The crust was crunchy and crispy and the delicate taste of the meat greatly matched the seeds. I wished I had been able to taste something else but we were to full to eat anything. For me it is a Michelin star place. And I would like to add some words about breakfast the following day. It is rare you can eat such a varied morning meal with everything fresh and nicely served. Thank you Gostilna and Motel Pri Lesniku. Good luck and see you again.More

It was a bit tricky to move around and find your table after going to the bathroom or to the parking lot. It is a maze of dining rooms and terraces, and I ended up in the kitchen at least twice. However, the service was...excellent, as was the food: We were a big party of 7, and we tried various dishes and entries. My favourite was the roast pork ribs, but the grilled chicken was also very good. Some entries (beef carpaccio) were rather small, and the salad bar was not very attractive.More

Despite maybe not the best location, the motel and restaurant are really nice and we had a really pleasant experience. We started with homemade mushroom soup and also tried the pumpkin soup – both were very nice, however I would recommend mushroom option more. We...followed with Angus-beef steak, which was actually quite average and a bit overcooked. The stake came with baked potatoes and mixture of vegetables – both of those were very nice. For desert we had some sort of yoghurt parfait which was fantastic and for me the best part of the whole meal. Over all – good food and nice service. Recommended!More

Is a very cozy hotel, approximately 5 minutes from highway.... It's easy to find, has a parking space right in front of the reception. I'm a foodie and let me tell you: the food in the restaurant is delicious!!!! You get big portions and it's...dirt cheap!!! The staff is super friendly especially the waitress. The deluxe room is very spacious and clean, the whole building smells and looks clean. We're only spending the night because we're just passing through. But trust me when I say: in this place you really get bang for your buck!More
