We had paid extra for a lake view and it was so worth it! Rooms are fairly ordinary but fine. Sitting on the balcony looking over at the castle was magic enhanced by the easy availability of very good wine. The public rooms are awful communist era bleak with terrible lighting which made the balcony essential. We didn't care about the noise from below although it was very loud when the bikers were in town. Lake Bled is so pretty it seems unreal.
We were half board and breakfast was fine although one morning pasta replaced the advertised porridge which really surprised some people. Fairly awful machine coffee but add an extra shot of espresso and it's almost drinkable. Staff in the hotel including those in the dining room are very pleasant and helpful. The dining room is huge so try not to lose your partner as I did one morning.
Dinner on the whole was fine except for one dreadful evening when several tours came in at once and we literally could not get anything we wanted to eat. We should have left the chaos and gone elsewhere as eating out is very reasonable. We had a gloomy table in the unpleasant and cavernous room but we just scuttled out as soon as we were finished. House wine is good and the lady who sorted the drinks was incredibly organised even when under awful pressure and always managed to smile. Food is self service. The night after the disaster we just peeped in before going out to eat and were greeted with sparkling wine and a special menu so of course we stayed!
So the best things about this hotel are the smiling and efficient staff and the amazing view and I mustn't forget the very nice swimming pool which we enjoyed. Slovenia is absolutely gorgeous and Lake Bled is like a film set. And don't forget to try the cake.
