Ideally located at the entrance to Paklenica National Park, this homely 10-room hotel is popular with hikers and free-climbers, many of whom are return visitors. The ground floor terrace restaurant serves fresh seafood dishes, and you have the option of going half-board and eating dinner here. Besides the hotel, the owners also manage a complex of three restored 19th-century stone cottages at the foot of Mount Velebit, which come with self-catering facilities and can sleep 12 guests.
