Wonderful homely start.
Lovely people, very nice room. Excellent cooking facilities shared with other guests, though we had it to ourselves when we stayed - the other guests ate out. Note that you need a car (or possibly use taxis) to get to Plitvice.

10/10 Exceptional

I only needed a quick place to stay near the national park and this was a perfect pick. I got lucky and there was nobody else in the other rooms so I had the bathroom to myself. It was very quiet and in a charming little farm town which I loved. The hosts were friendly and I didn't need much so no real comments there but check in and out was easy. The only issue I had was it was a bit difficult to find the place because my GPS wasn't quite accurate with the address given so maybe giving some instructions on how to get there from the main road and what to do once you get there (I was knocking on random doors until I found the right one) would be nice. Otherwise a great place to stay.

Nice place, but not perfect for us
We stayed here 1 night while visiting the park. Very friendly people, clean, well kept home, good location to the park. Unfortunately we have 2 complaints though. The walls are thin, and we could easily hear the other guests talking. And there was a no drinking sign posted in our room (as well as the shared kitchen space). I can completely understand the no smoking sign. But 2 adults sharing a bottle of wine in any room they rent should not be prohibited.

Friendly guest house near Plitvice
This guest house is slightly off the main road to Plitvice from the North, easy to get to and close to this national park. The room was comfortable, the staff very friendly, the breakfast fairly large (separate fee), and the area very quiet (if you don't mind the rooster in the morning). We would come back here.
