“Top Choice for Bled area, great rooms, great service, great food.”
Reviewed May 28, 2012 via mobile

We stayed at Gostilna Lectar for. 3 nights in May and really got a feel for the place.
The Hosts and staff are all very friendly, helpful and informed nothing was to much trouble even the loan of some tools to fix a problem on our hire car.

Situated in the historic town square of Radovljica the Gostlina Lectar is a lovely place to eat or just have a beer.
In line with the majority of other reviews

•. The food is very good
•. The in house restaurant menu choices are predominantly Slovenian specialities, the restaurant is rated as one of the best in the region, we agree.
•. The rear terrace is 'the' place to sit, with wonderful panoramic views of the Alps towards Austria
•. The rooms are very well appointed and spacious, the most comfortable beds in our two week tour
•. Several of the rooms have access to a private roof terrace with wonderful views of the Alps on one side and the historic Town Sq with its fresco fronted buildings on the other
•. The staff and service are excellent, attentive and informed.
There is a producing Gingerbread museum in the basement which adds a fairy tale experiance if you have any children in your group.
• The owner/proprieter Joze is a very welcoming and attentive host as is his wife Lili, their staff all maintain the same standards.

The only downside is parking there is a small public car park at the end of the Sq but it's always full, waiting a few minutes usually produces a space though.
It may be possible to arrange a space at the rear of the hotel if you ask when making a reservation.

We would have no hesitation in staying here again especially when considering the options in and around Bled as the alternative.

Very nice place and a friendly staff. The restaurant is so good that I always make it point to eat there whenever I am in Radovljica. I go there 3-4 times a year on business.
Located in the old town there's no parking close to the hotel/ restaurant. The parking lot at the roundabout is usually full ( low season) and it is most likely impossible to find parking there in the high season. During my stay I had to park some 500 m away in a residential area.
The restaurant is a must when in town. I really recommend the homemade blueberry snaps which is fantastic as well as some of the quirkier cousine line pickled calfs tongue.

Lay pastoral location, owners and staff polite, smiling and recipients of guests in makes you want to return there. We stayed four days and enjoyed every minute.
Charming and beautiful room, good breakfast and dinner in a restaurant, excellent.

Gostilna Lectar is an interesting choice if you wish to visit the lake Bled region. The condition is to have a car, because Radolvjica, the town where Pension Lectar is, is about 5 km from Lake Bled.

It is a nice inn, with caring personnel, dressed in the folklore West-Slovenia style. The restaurant is also ok, if you'd like to try the culinary (heavy) specialties of this region.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights with my wife. We loved the quiet location (on a pedestrian old square) and the clean and modern room. When they renovated it, they discovered old paintings on the ceiling and walls and have nicely restored them. The bathroom is clean and modern. The breakfast buffet was nice (nice breads, cheeses/meats, jams, fruits, cereals, yogurts...)
The owner is super friendly and the staff was nice too. There is 2 small (free) parking lots less than 100m from the hotel for the people who live on the pedestrian square. However they will let you drive to the hotel if you need to drop off your bags.
The restaurant downstairs has a very nice atmosphere, and the food was good. There are also other restaurants in walking distance if you want to try something else.
Radovljica is a lovely town, just minutes away from Bled, but much more relaxed and quiet. We would definitely go back there and stay at the Lectar.
