Location of this hotel is fantastic! The rooms are huge and comfortable. We were ready for the 50's decor but blown away by the views of the lake, island and castle. We stayed in two suites, a lakeview and woods view, I think they were 104 and 107? The lakeview was amazing and the other one was for the kids. However, their room got warmer and was smaller than ours. The lakeside suite was very large and we could have all stayed in it confortably. We hung out at the private lakeside deck where the kids loved diving in and swimming around. There we would take the rowboats out to the island...it was so relaxing! We would take the bikes out each morning and go around the lake before our amazing breakfast. In July, Lake Bled starts getting crowded but not at Villa Bled. It is far enough removed to be quiet but close enough to go in town for meals or ice cream. The "chambermaids" were so sweet and the rest of the staff was pleasant. They are not gushing or trying to impress but helpful when asked for anything. Finally, i got a kick out of my 9 year old playing the Internet game Club Penquin on Tito's desk. I had to take a picture! It is the nicest place in the area. Although the Grand Toplice is nice, it is noisy and not as private because of it's location on the road.
