Recently we came back from our honeymoon and Kendov Dvorec was one of the hotel we stayed in. First of all this hotel is different from any others in its unique atmosphere. Once you enter you fill calm, forget about the problems and relax. This charming place really makes a lot of work behind the curtain to make you feel... More

This is truly a delightful, unique departure from standard hotel accommodations. We relished in the approachable, helpful and informative close-knit staff at the Kenda Manor. A stay here is like going to 'grandmother's house' with its old, fine furnishings and intimate warm-tone ambiance. During our 18-day trip through the Balkan countries and Venice we experienced no stay that made us... More

We had two nights here while we toured the area and loved the hotel. It was elegant, had very lovely grounds and the hotel itself was beautifully furnished. The waiter in the breakfast room was one of the most helpful and kind we'd met. Unfortunately, after a full day of touring, we weren't in the mood for the 5-course gourmet... More

It takes a bit of time to drive down the roads to Idrija but that was worth it. We did a two week round trip in Slovenia and this was one of (if not the) best stay. The biggest plus are food (all self-made or locally sourced) and wine (all Slovenian) as well as service. The waiter was excellent, all... More

A luxurious hotel on beautiful private grounds. We were impressed with the helpful staff and the well appointed room. Our dinner was served in the garden and even though the menu was limited (no choice for first course and only trout and beef for the main course) it was well prepared and elegantly served. The only draw back to the... More

My wife and I have stayed at many Relais & Chateaux properties in many countries, and spent two nights here, apparently upgraded to the largest room, though that was never stated. Most impressive was the excellent service at dinner, as well as the quality of the cuisine … virtually flawless. We enjoyed both the food and the wine pairings immensely,... More

Nice relais et chateau. May be a little bit asleep/rigid. Good restaurant with tipical food. Nice place if you consider flyfishing on Idrijca.

The staff were great and made the stay. My room was small but the suites looked very good. The food was excellent and the kitchen was very flexible if the menu didn't suit. Parking was easy and the general atmosphere in the hotel was relaxing and good. As it promotes fishing as a pursuit, it would be good to have... More

This was one example, how a small hotel can be better than a large one. We were greeted by the manager personnaly and shown our room, which was even better than expected. We stayed there for 10 nights exploring the surrounding areas. The food, consisting only of fresh local food was good at a reasonable pricing.

The Kendov far exceeded our expectations already raised from reading the reviews on this site. It achieves a unique blend of warmth, homeliness, elegance and professionalism. Yes, the hotel is at the top of a road with appartments lower down, but that is just how the charming village has developed over time. The hotel itself is a real oasis of... More
