We have recently returned from a stay at this hotel and had a lovely time. We paid extra for a Lake View room and were not disappointed. They views of the lake, castle and church were a wonderful sight to wake up to.
The rooms at this hotel were extremely clean and comfortable with air-conditioning which was a huge plus as the weather was quite hot whilst we were there.
Our stay included breakfast and dinner and there was always a huge choice. I think even the most picky eater would be able to find something they liked. We also sometimes ate luch at the hotel which was very reasonably priced and always served with a smile. We were also given vouchers for free tea and cookies each afternoon and another voucher for a meal at a neighbouring hotel which I must say was lovely.
The staff were all very friendly and happy to help with anything you needed and if you take the time to read through the guest book that is in each room you would be surprised to see just how far they are willing to go to accomodate your needs. If you want a robe and slippers then just ask, the same if you want to hire a bike. This is apparantly free of charge and although we did not require either of these things I thought it a nice touch. The hotel also has a lovely pool and jacuzzi which was never busy. In fact it was a very quiet hotel with very few English guests.
We had planned our stay around the Bled Days Festival which was wonderful. We loved the loop air show over the lake, firework display and egg shell candles on the lake. The pure sight of the thousands of candles was a sight to behold and no photograph could show just how beautiful this was. You would have to see this for yourself.
There are many things to do in Bled and the surrounding areas. My husband and sons loved the toboggan ride but even if you choose like me (I'm a wimp!) not to come down on a toboggan the sight at the top of the hill is wonderful. You can just pay to go up on the chair lift and back down again. We also walked up to the castle. We took the steps but there is a much gentler route to take. Again the views were fantastic but I would say go early to enable you to get some lovely photos without too many people around. We got there very early and took some great pics. We also went on a Pletna boat out to the church on the island and took a tour of Titos house which was very interesting. Nearby you will find Vintgar Gorge which was well worth a visit but again, get there early as can get quite busy.
We hired a car for four days and drove to the Postonja Caves which I would highly recommend. We also visited Lake Bohinj and went up in the Vogel cable car. Views again were amazing!
I had always said I wanted to go back to Bled with my husband and children and I'm so glad I did as everyone loved it. My one regret is booking for ten days, we wish we'd booked two weeks instead. It was such a relaxing holiday. Just what we needed. We all want to go back one day and I'm sure we will even if it takes my children 25 years like it did me! I went as a teenager the first time and it holds such special memories for me that I just had to go back.
