House Tina
Ranked #1 of 16 Grabovac B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 17, 2013

House Tina is a famly's home with 5 rooms and 3 cabins. It is clean and the bed was comfortable. Our balcony looked out on a pasture and mountains. It was a very good place for a one night stay before a day at the national park. It was easy to find, but requires a car. It is about 16 km past the park entrance. The hosts know some English and it was easy to manage. Breakfast of scrambled eggs, cereal, yogurt and bread was very good. There are many "houses" with rooms. This one had lots of parking, quiet and stars to see from the balcony.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 5 have balconies. I would go for Room 1

The location of the hotel is breathtaking, with great views overlooking the mountains. Fantastic accommodation with excellent staff making you feel relaxed. A couple of nice restaurants across the road, and tourist centre located near by. However downside, has nothing to do with the hotel but the actual location, in the fact that, the local bus service is none existence. As me and my girlfriend didn't have a car we waited two hours for a bus to take us up to the lakes, and eventually thumbed a lift. Which gave us less time exploring the lakes then we planned. The next morning was the same story, waiting over two hours for a bus, until eventually a very, friendly local pulled over and gave us a 30 minute lift to the nearest bus centre. His story about how he battled in the war, showing us some fascinating areas which have been destroyed by the war, made up for the wait a little though.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. However, if you don't have a car, you may want to think again. You think the public transport in your area is terrible, well wait until you visit Grabovac. Not ending on a bad note, the hotel is worth a visit. Especially for couples looking for a quiet place to stay in a beautiful surrounding area.

We were looking for a place close to Plitvice Lakes that was friendly and comfortable for just a one-night stay. House Tina exceeded our expectations. The setting is in the country, a pretty mountainous area with lots of space all around. The host was friendly and helpful in many ways, offering us scrambled eggs (American style!) on top of an already excellent breakfast. I don't think I've ever seen so many different types of jam - we needed extra toast. The room was spacious and there was a nice little balcony. Everything was clean and looked new. We were scheduled for the bungalow but he moved us into the main building because the weather had turned colder and we would be warmer there.

My wife and I stayed at House Tina for two nights during a one week trip to Croatia. The hotel is located just 10km from the Plitvice lakes in a very beautiful and scenic area.

Our room was very large, very clean and had a very spacious balcony. Breakfast was more than adequate and at just €54 per night, this hotel offered superb value for money.

We planned to only stay for one night but ended up staying for two because of the great location, immaculate rooms (were absolutely spotless and attention to design/ detail was very apparent), great breakfast and amazing views of the valley from the balcony. The place looks brand new, was pretty quiet but probably because we were there in early October. The hospitality was amazing and we really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it. Would also be a great spot for families as they have large rooms with bunk beds and a table in the room. There are so many places to choose in the area but House Tina was a great find and we would stay there gain for sure.

This B&B, some 10 km from the Plitvice lakes, is absolutely recommendable to anyone who will visit the lakes. The rooms are very clean and tne breakfast and service is very good. The hosts do everything possible to make you compfortable.Hopefully they will keep the prices on the current modest level, although even a 25% higher price wouldn't have changed our opinion. The location is very quiet, but near to a choice of restaurants.
