Stayed one night on our self-drive trip through Croatia. Small, well-appointed rooms. Great in-house restaurant. Indoor pool. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Helpful, attentive staff. Quaint setting high above new town. Would definitely recommend.

Cute little hotel, very nice interior, rooms was clean but small, garden is like in some move and you feel some relaxes in whole area . Regarding food, little to expensive for my opinion but that is not objective attitude... overall its nice

We stayed for 1 night on our way to the Croatian coast. This hotel is located in the pretty old town, up on the hill so it benefits from nice views. The hotel is comfortable with good facilities including an indoor pool which we didn't use but looked really nice. The staff were helpful and friendly. The only downside was...

Although we did not stay at the Vela Vrata hotel, the meal we ordered at the restaurant was most probably the best meal that we had during our holiday in Croatia.

Hotel Vela Vrata is the only hotel in the old hilltop town of Buzet. Views from around the town are stunning. Rooms are excellently appointed. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant in the hotel serves great local food. A great place to visit for a day or two.

We stayed here for one night and loved it! Fantastic food and very comfortable rooms. The spa was welcome after a long day in the rental car. The scenery around the hotel and the fantastic little walled-in village of course adds to our favourable review.

We stayed for 2 nights as we walked trails around Buzet. This was the perfect place to stay. We had a lovely room with windows overlooking the front of the hotel. The weather was cool and wet but our room was so cozy and warm. The bed and pillows were amazing - so comfortable. We had dinner in the restaurant...
