I stayed for a week in June and its taken me a few months to write this review as I was not certain what I really felt. I enjoyed my time and Lake Bled is beautiful. Maybe the wonderful weather in June and the fact the hotel gave access for swimming in the lake is reflected in my rating. At the beginning there were some odd moments and the hotel felt as though it was only just operating efficiently. The waiting staff in the mornings seemed rather bemused that we wanted to sit outside for breakfast, although that got better later in the week. maybe the sudden onset of summer with a heatwave caught them out. I did not like the fact I had no choice of where I sat for evening meal.I was offered one of two tables and no I could not sit near the window and had that same table all week. I found the food a bit hit and miss, with some good meals but also some 'odd' combinations with a rather 80's feel at times. waiting staff obviously experienced and skilled at their role.
Unfortunately I was too late booking to secure a lakeside view and my room was small and dark. Luckily weather was so good spent little time in it.
Still not sure how I feel about the hotel. I think I would sum it up as faded charm but it grew on me,and I did enjoy it, but would I stay there again-still not sure.
