“This is the best B&B I have ever stayed at!”
Reviewed 22 August 2011

I chose to stay at Reka Hisa purely because of the large amount of good reviews I had read on TA and I was not disappointed. Clive and Myrna have been the most welcoming and helpful hosts right from the moment we booked our room. Clive gave me some advice on email even before we landed in Slovenia because we were facing some problems getting our visas.

Clive is an awesome chef. We used to look forward to dinner every night. If you're checking into this B&B, avoid eating lunch because the three course meal at night is quite filling. The room rates include breakfast and dinner so if it seems a little more expensive than other places...according to my calculations...it's not. Purely because your food is taken care of and you're guaranteed to get a really good meal every day.

The rooms face the river so it's a pleasure to wake up every morning to its sound. They are large enough to accommodate two adults but three would be a crowd. They are also cleaned everyday.

For me the best part of the trip was to sit around the large table every night and chat with fellow travellers. I think that's a very good concept!

The only thing you have to keep in mind if you choose to stay here is the fact that it is half way between Lake Bled and Bohinj. The bus stop is 10 minutes away and buses leave every hour. So you have to make sure that you leave on time if you're heading into town because you will have to wait an extra hour if you don't. Also make sure you follow the exact directions to the place when you first get here because some of the inter city bus drivers are not familiar with it and will drop you at the wrong bus stop. (It happened to us! Luckily, we had our phones and were able to get in touch with Myrna who promptly sent someone to pick us up.)

The advantage of its location was that my husband and I were able to visit both Lake Bohinj and Bled in one day. It's also on the country side so it's nice to stay away from the touristy city centre.

Lastly, we absolutely adore Patrick (Clive and Myrna's Great Dane). Yes, he's huge but he's the most loving and docile dog you could ever meet. He kept us entertained with his antics.

Without a doubt, if we ever come back to Slovenia, we will be checking into Reka Hisa.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms facing the river.

We had a lovely stay here and particularly enjyed the excellent evening meals....don't come here if you are hoping to loose weight! Everything..the scenery, air, view, food was so fresh and clean. We used the local hourly bus service to get to Bled and Bohinj and enjoyed kayak and rafting trips arranged by Clive. A very friendly welcome and good converstions over the dinner table.

Our daughter stayed here first. We enjoyed very much our stay,too.The owners,Clive & Myrna went out of their way to make sure everyone enjoyed his/her stay.They even helped us to work out little known local train connections & took us there at 0600 hours.They can organize all the outdoor activities.Clive is an amazingly good cook.He tailors the 3 course dinners to what you like & even cooked beautiful tofu dishes for my wife & other vegetarian.
The place is hidden beside a mountain stream with lots of trouts.It is very beautiful & peaceful,like in another world. All the rooms have great view.Our room is clean,bright,serviced & has everything we need.The dinning room has a family atmosphere with all the guests sitting together talking at a huge dinning table.
My wife liked the view so much. She has in mind to come back here already.

My boyfriend and I booked 4 nights at Reka Hisa in July and we loved it so much we stayed an extra 2 nights. Bled is a beautiful place to walk /cycle around and Clive and Myrna will help organise any activities you want to do. The location of the guest house is fantastic as you are close to the bus stop so have easy access to Bled/ Bohinj but it is far enough out of town so you're surrounded by beautiful mountains and right next to the Bohinska Sava river. Our room looked out at the river and was a gorgeous view to wake up to every morning. The room itself, while basic was comfortable and impeccably clean. Each night we were served the most amazing 3 course meals. Everything we ate was delicious and made with the freshest ingredients. I loved everything we were served, and it was made all better by the fact we all sat around the dinner table together sharing stories of the day's activities. Clive and Myrna are amazing hosts. It feels like staying with old friends and they will do everything they can to make sure you're stay is as enjoyable as possible.
We also absolutely loved meeting the super friendly great dane Patrick. Even if somebody is not a fan of dogs, you couldn't help loving this gorgeous pet. He's like an overgrown puppy and is such a gentle giant.
Everything about Reka Hisa makes you not want to leaveand we were sorry to reach the end of our trip. Anyone who chooses to stay here will certainly not be disappointed. I cannot recommend this guest house highly enough. Enjoy!!

Just returned from a really good stay at Reka Hisa. The location is really beautiful, nearly half-way between Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj. Views from my room were straight over the river - lovely to wake up to! There are heaps of activities to do - I tried kayaking, horse riding and walking in the mountains - all great. Hourly buses run between the lakes and the stop is very close to the house, so no particular need for a car. Clive and Myrna are very helpful and the home cooking isn't to be missed! The rooms are all very clean and the showers are brilliant. Only thing with my room was that the beds were quite basic (single beds). Try and ask for the one with the double - a better room I think. Reka Hisa is a great place for a quiet and relaxing stay, with plenty of activities to keep you busy!

Room Tip: Ask for the room with a double bed rather than twins - more comfortable.

We stayed 3 days at Reka Hisa as a mini-vacation to see the area. We can definitely recommend Reka Hisa. The hosts - Clive and Myrna - knows the area really well and provided us with many tips that made our vacation better, from restaurants to hiking trips. The Reka Hisa itself feels like visiting a friend in his house. Excellent food is served in the living room and you can play games, watch a movie or just have a cold beer. The rooms are very clean and hotel-like cleaning is done daily when you are away. The rooms are also pleasantly cool in the summer. Finally, the view to the river is also very nice and invites for at quick swim, which is rather refreshing! We are already planning how and when we can come back to the Bled area for a longer stay. It is really an amazing area and the Reka Hisa is a great base for exploring the area and the national park!
