Fantastic hotel in a rural part of Slovenia - approx 30 minutes drive from Maribor and close to some of the best wineries in the country. We stayed in Limegrass but all the rooms look lovely. We booked through i-escapes so got a good price and a lovely bottle of sparkling wine. Urska is the most charming host - helpful and friendly without being in anyway intrusive - it was like staying in a good friends beautiful home (unfortunately none of our friends have a house as beautiful as this!) Breakfast was wonderful and served till 12 if you are feeling lazy. You will have to drive in the evenings to local restaurants - we tried Rajh and Tramshek and both were great. If you want to stay in a different part of Slovenia, then there is nowhere better than here!

We spent one night at Sončna hiša. We were in the room Natura. The staff is really kind and the breakfast was just perfect. The whole selection of different things prepared just for us.

The rooms are really lovely though you really should rent a room with your partner, because the toilet and shower are in glass walls and the bathroom is a part of the room, not separated with another door. It could be quite awkward if you'd go there with a friend.

There are two small saunas in wellness, but because there were just 2 rooms full at the time of our visit, we had them just to ourselves. It would probably be more crowded during the weekends when it's usually busier, but anyways 10 persons tops in the hotel.

There is one thing that dissapointed me a bit though. On the website they are advertising "products from the L'OCCITANE cosmetic range for your personal care", but unfortunatelly we didn't had those small bottles filled with shampoo and shower gel from L'OCCITANE in the room. Considering the price we payed for our package, I would expect everything to be perfect. So this is just one thing that bothered me.

Room Tip: We had the room Natura and it's in the upper floor and it's also quite big. I believe we mad...

My husband and I spent here three days and we enjoyed every moment. It is a really nice place, the room, Manhattan, is comfortable, with lovely view over the fields, and the wellnes is superb. But the most value to this place bring the people who work here. The staff is friendly, always there to help you and make all your wishes come true. From the fantastic breakfast in the morning (local food, every day something different) to the last glass of wine in the evening. You can relax at the wellness, do some sports or enjoy a dinner at a local restaurant (they know which one you should not miss!). Highly recommend for people who want to get away from everyday life.

Room Tip: You can not miss much since there are only five rooms, each with an unique design.

I spent two day at Sončna hiša last year. I got the stay there as a wedding gift. Before I went there I visited their web site to see what to expect. Reading the informations on their site I expected a house in the middle of a meadow, with a lot of privacy and rich service.
From the site: "The sun house is an oases... Fresh fruit in the room.... Sweet surprise in the room... A large balcony... Products from the L'OCCITANE cosmetic range for your personal care..."
I was realy exited and happy to go there.
First surprise:
When we came (me & my husband) the first surprise was that the house is in the middle of the village, surrounded by other houses... is not an oasis. Oasis is an isolated area.
Second surprise:
The things included in the gift package were fresh fruits, sweet surprise, luxury cosmetics... in the room. I expected a fruit basket, chocolate box and luxury cosmetics. I just found one rotten apple, two small chocolate eggs and one small shower gel (no shampoo, no soap, no body cream...).
Third surprise:
The room was very beautiful, but when I went to take a shower, the neighbors can see you becouse they live 5 meters away.
Maybe this things are not important for someone, but for me this little things means a lot.
I will not just criticize... the stuff was friendly and the breakfast was very good.

Dear Maja R.,

As we try our best to spoil our guests and offer them a nice retreat, we are sorry that we have managed to disappoint you and didn't succeed to fulfill your expectations. Usually we receive good comments regarding our house that is why I feel we need to comment on your review. And since you have visited us a while ago, last year, the bad feeling about our house must have been bothering you for some time that is why we feel you deserve a reply.

We do not mention on our site that the house is hidden in the middle of meadows, far away from the village. It is located in Banovci, small rural village with only 50 houses. Our goal is to make our guests feel at home, away from home. Sončna hiša is designed in a ''home'' like style with living room, terrace, garden, homemade breakfast and we believe that a part of a house and a home are also neighbors. That is why an oasis is not meant as hidden place far away from everyone, but as a sanctuary, place of refuge what we hope we are trying to provide with our wellness viewed to surrounding fields, with massages, relaxing bike rides to river Mura and walks thru paths and fields and not with distant location. Our house is on one way surrounded with neighboring houses but our rooms are facing fields.

We are sorry that our fruit, sweet surprise and luxury cosmetics didn't meet your expectations. Thank you for pointing out. We will try to level up our service. We are just sorry that you didn't point out your disappointment at hotel and we would do our best to turn your opinion around.
The concept of our house and all our rooms are open spaces with glass bathroom, but to hide away from neighbors you can always close a curtain.

However, it is nice to hear that our famous breakfast didn't disappoint you and as always our friendly staff.

I hope at least you had some nice time with us and that a gift selected by your friends was not just all bad surprise.

Thank you and all the best,
Front Office Manager

We went to Sončna hiša in April. I somehow expected what the place would look like and it didn't let me down. But what is more than just a design hotel is a service. It was superb! Girls working behind the desk were extremely helpful. One can see they enjoy their work and that is fantastic. Keep on!

We stayed in the room Manhattan and I adore glass shower. One can experience it a bit uncomfortable as there is no privacy if you have room mate, so keep that in mind when making reservation. Well, we enjoyed it.

Room Tip: Manhattan is very good choice; keep in mind privacy issue - bathroom is behind glass.

We only spent two nights at Sončna hiša, but they were fabulous. The staff was very attentive and personal. They brought us a special late night meal when we missed dinner, and were especially gracious to our extended family. In the mornings, we woke to the sounds of birds and livestock, and the fresh and lovely breakfast prepared by the staff. Sončna hiša is more like a bed and breakfast than a hotel, without all of the kitchy decor!

Room Tip: Note that several of the suites have only glass between the toilet, shower, and rest of the room (se...

Our family spent a wonderful weekend in Soncna hisa last November. Modern, yet cosy little hotel on the edge of Panonia near Mura river surprised us thru and thru. Spacious room named "The Stork" spoiled us on a couple of easy going evenings, jacuzzi with candles, a glass of champagne...
Cuisine in the house is 5star, by my opinion. They offer just breakfast but one gets driven thru variety of flavours and tastes. Dinner at a local restaurant by owner's recommendation was a bonus.
Last evening my wife and me took a tour to inhouse wellness, relaxation pure.
Our first and not last visit, for sure.
Highly recommended!
