After reading all the reviews and doing extensive research, we decided to stay at Mulej Tourist Farm for three nights over Christmas. This place did not disappoint. Our room was spacious, meticulously clean and practically brand new. There was a living area with a couch and TV. Overall, it was excellent value for money and we would definitely stay there again.
Breakfast was divine - we gorged ourselves every day on delicious home-made prosciutto, butter, berry jam, and the most wonderful freshly baked bread.
The house is beautiful, and there are horses and cats and a wonderful dog hanging around. It is truly a farm, and the view from our window and balcony was gorgeous.
The village of Selo is very cute, and the house is literally only a 5-10 minute walk to Lake Bled. The walk is quite beautiful and truly a pleasure.
The only real disappointment was our Christmas dinner. We asked for half board on Christmas day, thinking that we might have a hard time getting a dinner reservation at a restaurant. They promised us that Christmas dinner would be a "better" meal than usual. In fact, it was pretty awful: bland, oily soup (noodles in oily water); boiled potatoes and extremely bland, boiled beef. We were really glad that we didn't sign up for half board on any of the other days.
I even heard another guest telling the owner, "My husband does not want any soup tonight, please." When we saw the soup, we could see why. Apparently it is the same soup every night.
They only positive thing we can say about that dinner is that it was reasonably priced (8 Euro per person). Of course, the price did not include drinks. If you are on a severe budget, half-board is an option. But frankly, for the same price, you can have a wonderful meal in the little Osterija restaurant in the town of Bled. The meal we ate at the Tourist Farm was worth far less than 8 Euro.
We highly recommend this place (just not their dinner!).
