LOTS OF PHOTOS UPLOADED FOR YOU (21 to be in fact) Bad bits first. The waiters at Breakfast have extreme B.O. They put the BO into BOROVETS. To be blunt they stink. They have the most awful hygiene and if I were the hotel manager I would be sitting them down and showing them what a bar of soap is... More

I would like to start by saying that writing excellent reviews for a hotel can have an adverse effect. We stayed at the Winter Palace two years ago, I wrote a raving review and then last year we couldn't get a room there!!! Fortunately this year we did. I have to say though that I was a little disappointed. After... More

I was a little sceptical beforehand but have honestly had an amazing holiday! As a beginner borovet is fantastic for skiing! The hotel is literally a 2 minute walk from the bottom of the ski slope. The hotel itself was clean, warm and quiet. The wifi was a nice added bonus but was a little slow at times. The rooms... More

Just got back from a week's skiing in Borowetz, staying at the FWP hotel. Hotel is very conveniently placed for the slopes. We had a double room which was fine. Not 5 star as we know it, but comfortable and very good for the price. Courteous, helpful staff. Good breakfasts. Room was overheated and had very limited storage space, but... More

Just back from our first ski holiday staying at the Festa. We were very pleased with the hotel, we had a huge suite with two bedrooms on two levels looking out into snow covered forest. A very quiet location five minutes walk from the slopes. The pool and spa were clean and very welcome after a day on the slopes.... More

We have just returned home after our stay at the winter palace and it is just amazing. Our 'family room' was more than we ever expected; 2 bathrooms, spiral staircase leading from the family room (with several sofas, 2camp beds, tv etc) to our room with a jacuzzi bath which has been a real hit after a tough day on...
