Hisa Brdo Guesthouse
Ranked #2 of 6 Tolmin B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 November 2013

The house is situated in a beautiful area of Slovenia, the view from the garden at sunset takes some beating! Clean, comfy and well maintained, the house was an ideal base, albeit everywhere takes a while to get to, but that is just the Slovenian roads for you, windier than a coiled snake :-). John was an excellent host, nothing was too much trouble, even when I feared we had failed to get enough petrol to make it to the airport he was there with a reassuring word and directions to the nearest petrol station. We had the house all to ourselves so the peace and tranquility was especially good. Ideal base if you have a car and the country is amazing, lake Bled and Bohinj are wonderful days out

This place is located in a gorgeous area. We visited the Tolmin Gorge which is really gorgeous. Our kids spent hours playing by the river, down the hill from the house, just a short drive away.

John is an excellent host. He provides very helpful advice about where to go and how to get there. He could not have been more gracious and made us feel right at home the entire stay. He is also an interesting and friendly guy. The rooms are very comfortable and clean, with updated bathrooms. The location of the house is very scenic and we thoroughly enjoyed the surroundings.

Host John has tastefully refurbished an old farm house is really which sits pretty in Baca valley. It is also easy to find, being right by the road side, although somewhat before the official Grahovo village sign (if you come from Tolmin). Our room was also partly facing the road although this was no problem as there was hardly any traffic anyway. Otherwise you are surrounded by pure nature. We visited the Tolminka gorge and I can recommend this to anybody who likes nature.

John is a very helpful and generous host, giving quality advice. The best thing during our stay was the open fire place. Who needs a TV when you can watch a couple of logs burn...

Would we come back? Absolutely!

Lovely scenic spot. Clean and comfy. Had lovely holiday. Driving distance to some lovely walks and scenic spots- bled, gorge walk Tolmin etc. Need car to get around. Good BBQ set up out back but if want to eat out, need car. Owner is Irish- friendly and helpful-breakfast was good.

Perfect place to stay in a perfect location, owned by John - a very nice Irish guy. You will need your own transport though as the guesthouse is situated few miles from the nearest town, on a hill in a beautiful valley. Ideal for quiet family stay or active holidays - rafting, paragliding, fishing. It's central to most of the best sights in western Slovenia - the national parks, the Postojna cave and the Adriatic coast. Also breakfasts just could not be better!

Room Tip: some rooms overlook the main road so even though there is very little traffic it could wake up some...
