We booked in for Metalcamp ( metal Festival in Tolmin ) We ordered two double rooms with breakfast ( we were told we had to have this as part of the booking ) would have preferred just the room rate.
When we arrived we were moved into an ajoining room sharing the bathroom and shower/bath with our travelling mates... would have preferred our own bathroom.... but it was mates so we made do.
No lift to the top floor - 3 levels up - we had requested a room on a lower level when we booked 8 months prior to our arrival. We got our luggage up in a few trips but met other UK travellers that could not carry their bags up and had to literally open the case and take handfuls of clothes up in 4 trips... No one offers to help and no staff to take your bags up.
Food - basic and very expensive for what it is.. and salty... staff busy all day and very understaffed considering it was rammed full to the rafters of people.
Pool.. we booked here as we figured it would be nice to have a pool to hang out at during the day... it was not open.. even tho this was JULY and 40c .... Never found the gym but was told it was also closed.
Ice for drinks... nope non of that either... machine had broken but instead of going out and purchasing some bags for the bar you just had no ice in drinks and the mixers were not cold but warm... not how I imagined my COLD gin and tonic to be on a hot summers day.. had to ask for lemon or lime slice !.. MAYBE if they had frozen lemon and lime slices that would have been good...
Room only cleaned once during a 9 day stay...
Checked before we left if they took CCards.... they would not take a CC for the deposit ( which we had to pay months in advance at 25% of value ).... they confirmed they would take CC once we arrived... Nope that did not work either.... Said it had broken the week before but noone had come to fix it.... Had to go and get cash out of a machine and pay the small % on that.... and as they would not take CC over the phone for the hotel deposit we had to send via our bank which cost us an additional £45 to do....
All in all not happy and would not go back.. Ruter Pension over the road however was awesome.. clean tidy - ice for drinks - lots of food choices at good prices. Their hotel guests all looked happy every day... ours just looked... well miserable..
