“Amazing Location - first class hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

stayed 2 weeks 24th May - 7th Jun 2014
My wife and I rated this holiday as one of the best ever, Bohinj Lake is a quiet location in a National Park so don't expect any nightlife.
The location of the Vila Park is one of the prettiest in the area, the river that feeds the lake, flows along the edge of the large garden, The wild flowers in the meadows were a wonderful sight. It was interesting that a young couple from Bled got married in the Vila Park Garden during our holiday, I can't think of a nicer location for a wedding.
The accomodation is absolutely spotless, rooms have a fridge,
The safe and Wi-Fi are free and tea or coffee and biscuits are also available during the day day free of charge so don't bother taking a kettle.
The Chef is brilliant, meals are 4 courses and a side salad, taste and presentaion are of a very high standard.
There were guests from all over the world during our stay, had some really interesting convesations. Yana was the pefect host amind of information on the area.
We will definately return

We spent three nights in Park Vila and it came sort of a base camp for our hikes in the area. Our room was simply great with huge bookshelf full of great selection of books in English. We kind a felt bad that we did not have time to hang out there more during our short stay. There was also option of Finnish sauna for 20e but we did not have time for it because of our long hikes. Breakfast was diverse but we missed a little bit some fresh greens (like cucumber and lettuce) with bread. Jana was nice and she made us scrambled eggs morning every morning. Atmosphere was relaxed and public area and especial our room was very cozy with books and candles and a big balcony. We definitely recommend this place for your stay in Bohinj.

Room Tip: Room #5 was bigger than the others in the same floor although it didnt have a great view to the moun...

Our second stay at Vila Park was just as delightful as the first, a year ago. Jana is the perfect host and works amazingly hard to keep the hotel running smoothly and efficiently, and is invariably laughing!
The rooms are very clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated, and all have a balcony. Half-board is extremely good value (just an extra €10 each). If you want wine, then be prepared to pay for quality - it's among the finest in the region and is not available in the shops. Talking of which, don't come to Bohinj expecting to find a lively resort with shopping malls - it's not that kind of place at all; there are a couple of shops at the other, busier end of the lake, but this place is strictly for getting away from it all, a place to relax and enjoy the scenery. That said, there are many outdoor activities on offer, such as hiking, cycling, swimming, canoeing and - for those braver than I - hang-gliding. Jana will be happy to provide you with a packed lunch to help you survive the day's exertions!
The Vila Park is set in truly beautiful grounds, dotted with recliners for taking in the sun during the summer months, and with an amazingly clear river running along the edge of the garden. This small, smart hotel is something of a hidden gem, but is well worth searching out if you're looking for peace, quiet and sumptuous scenery.

We stayed for three days in the Vila Park and enjoyed our stay a lot. The garden next to the river is divine, the rooms spotless, bathrooms nice, and the owner very friendly. We did not opt for the dinner option, but the breakfast is nice as well. Great fruit salad, a good selection of pastry, coffee is ok. However, we felt that 60 Euros per person and night were overpriced. You can get a luxury hotel in Ljubljana for this price. On the other hand, you also pay for the location here ..no one has such a beautiful garden where you can enjoy tranquility in the heart of nature. We would have liked to use the pretty balcony more, but the two old wooden chairs were so uncomfortable you could not even sit on them. Better patio furniture and a small table is something one could expect for this price. Also, a tea making facility in the room would be nice, just as it became standard in other countries. Someone of the reviewers mentioned that the house is impersonal, it is actually a bit sleek. However, I did enjoy the light and tidiness of Vila Park which stands in contrast to the private rooms and apartments you can rent elsewhere in Bohinj. This is definitely a chic place for a couple.

Room Tip: probably the best rooms are the ones facing the lake, even if you can't see it from there

Stayed for 3 nights in mid June. Perfectly met (and exceeded) our expectations. The rooms were quiet and immaculate (even if slightly cozy), with a nice balcony. Jana was extremely welcoming and consistently wanted to make sure we were enjoying the stay. The breakfast was great, with many options. Many people seemed to enjoy the dinner as well, but we did not try it. The scenery (especially the lake) nearby the hotel is amazing and was a perfectly relaxing time. As we only stayed 3 nights (it seemed many of the guests stayed closer to a week), we spent most of our time out and about in the area (took a day trip to Bled and Ljubljana, toured the waterfalls and went rafting and hiking). It is just a 30-40 minute drive to Bled and is convenient to the other activities.

Our stay was all we wished and hoped for. Wonderful and peaceful surroundings. Our host Jana made us very welcome and provided a very relaxed atmosphere. Quite a cosy dining room and lounge area where you get to chat to other guests and share your day's activities. Easy to get around by foot, boat or bus. A wonderful time to go for seeing the meadows full of flowers. Couldn't recommend enough. Lovely!

My wife and I were vila-park four days in May, 2013 and highly recommend the place, the atmosphere, and the best treatment we received from Jana, which helped us in planning itinerary and recommendations about places and restaurants along the way. Just wonderful
