The Grand Hotel Toplice is located on the shore of Lake Bled, from where you can admire the loveliest views of the lake, Bled Island and Bled Castle. Step into the hotel with the longest tradition in Bled and listen to the stories whispered by the rustic parquet beneath your feet and emanating from the romantic furniture with a history spanning almost 90 years. Let yourself be taken to a world where time passed slower. The healing thermal spring murmuring below the hotel and the beds customised to offer you the maximum comfort will lull you into a restful sleep. Just like so many eminent guests before you. You will feel the sense of tradition and a special charm upon first setting foot in the hotel and your very first contact with the receptionist. Give your story time to be written in the history of our hotel in capital letters.

We were glad we chose the hotel because of the location and the fantastic views of the lake. Our room didn’t have a view of the lake but that was no problem because we could sit in the main lounge and take in the view. Also the main corridor outside our bedroom had a communal balcony at the end where you could take in the views. The decor was a bit past its best, we felt like we were in 1950s film set. Our room was small but serviceable for one night. Had all the amenities you would expect although the safe was tiny. Nice and quiet but very hot (had to leave the windows open). Breakfast was good - mixture of a la carte and buffet, with great views. Buffet was very fresh and nicely presented. Parking was next to the hotel entrance and €10 a day. You have to get someone to remove one of the metal bars blocking the space. All in all, we were pleased we stayed there, but that was primarily due to the fantastic views.

The hotel is situated on Lake Bled and our lakefront room had a terrace with an outstanding view of the lake. That was the highlight of the hotel. The service upon check in was a bit surly (although other hotel employees proved to be very nice and helpful). The rooms were consistent with old European hotels -- small rooms, tiny bathrooms, no storage, and a challenge keeping the room temperature comfortable. But it comes back to location.

I have very mixed feelings about this hotel. Good; The location is second to none, right on the lake with fabulous views. The breakfast is excellent, the variety exceptional. The use of the rowing boats and stand up paddle boards is brilliant. The private deck area and swimming are brilliant. Bad; Room 221 was terrible. Extremely small, with two single beds that were supposed to be a double. My husband and I were bumping into each other just trying to get changed on a morning because it was so small. The sheets did not fully fit the bed leaving the mattress exposed at the top. The pillows are old and do not keep their shape leaving you with a bad neck in the morning. The shower was a nightmare. Old style taps where you have to hook the shower up and a ineffective shower screen leaving the bathroom swimming in water each and every time you showered. Mopping the floor with towels was not something I expected on honeymoon. The air conditioning is completely ineffective probably because its so old. Barely worth having it on. The room looks straight out onto the busy road which is noisy unless you have aircon on. You might as well not have a balcony as you can't fit a chair on it and don't have a chair to put on it anyway! On the day it rained we went down to the spa to use the facilities but the smell of sewage made it unbearable and we could not stay there. This is such a shame as the spa itself looks beautiful. I would have had a massage but could not bear the smell. We did complain about the room and were shown others which were bigger but still very dated. We were told we would need to pay €40 a night to move to one of these rooms. One of which we walked a spiral staircase where the carpet was thick with visible grime on the edges and the paint on the walls was marked. This trip was our honeymoon which the hotel were aware of and sadly this hotel was very disappointing as we were so looking forward to staying here having seen the website and reviews. Thankfully Slovenia is beautiful and the activities we did there were fabulous which saved our honeymoon. A plus point is that the Juliana restaurant is excellent. The hotel needs to invest some money back into the place to bring it back to life. The rooms are desperate for renovation. If you book here pay more for a bigger room/better view and definitely do not take any rooms next to the lift as you can't swing a cat in them!

Our first time in this hotel and it did not disappoint. The view is rather special and our room was just opposite the castle on the hill. We stayed in the top-floor suite. The hotel seems to be a bit dated but apparently the renovation was supposed to happen a couple of years ago and then Covid hit. We were told that it will go ahead in the future. Having said that, the hotel has its charm and provides excellent value for money. The breakfast was truly lovely with a huge buffet selection. We also tried the hotel's Michelin Guide restaurant Julijana which truly surprised us as the food was out of this world. The service throughout our 6-day trip was impeccable - from the reception, concierge, restaurant staff, etc. everybody was so helpful and friendly. The hotel has its private beach with sunbeds on the lake where one can hire a SUP or a boat or buy a 2-hour picnic on the boat! For those who like to walk / run, there are plenty of opportunities around the lake. As the weather was hot and sunny, we did not use the indoor pool, only a massage (in the hotel) and a facial for which I went to the Rikli Balance Hotel of the same chain which is 5 minutes away. Both services were simply great. Can only recommend it. Will be back!

To me this hotel is like coming home. My family and I have visited this hotel many times, and each and every time the first walk from Reception into the main lounge area looking out over the lake towards the castle, never fails to take my breath away. It was lovely on this occasion, to bring my parents back, and also my son and his girlfriend (this being her first time of staying), and she like all of us, she fell in love with Toplice. The hotel is sheer old fashioned elegance. To some, this can be construed as 'shabby', or 'in need of improving', but for me it is beautiful and full of sophistication, and somewhere I always feel very special in when I stay. But the hotel would not be what it is without the amazing staff, who work tirelessly every day, to make each visitors stay special and memorable. My sincere and as always huge thanks, to the amazing Amel, without him the hotel would not be the same. Thank you too, as always, to the wonderful Dragan, also to Dejan and all the cleaning and waiting staff, and particular mention must go to the man in the parking area; without him, parking would be the challenge it used to be. Toplice should be experienced by everyone once in their life; it is a very magical place, which allows you to create the most amazing memories. Covid denied me the opportunity to return to Toplice last yea, something I am hoping I will not experience again.

We spent 4 nights at this remarkable property. While one might say the hotel itself is a bit dated, it is clearly well cared for and maintained. The views are spectacular but the absolute best part of the hotel is the staff. They are so friendly, helpful and professional - which considering most of them are students makes the whole experience even better. We spent most of our time in Bled sitting at the hotel's private deck which was so calm and relaxing (and thoroughly enjoyed the daily cold fresh fruit skewers in the morning and refreshing cold towels during the peak heat of the day). The daily breakfast was always fresh and delicious and being able to order hot dishes from the kitchen at no extra charge was a nice surprise. I also have to recognize Andela and Nina - who were always smiling and went above and beyond on multiple occasions for us. One word of advice- if you want to have dinner at Julijana (and trust me you do!) MAKE A RESERVATION IN ADVANCE. It is one of the most wonderful meals and dining experiences we've had (yet another shout out to Nina here!). The restaurant is very small and being a hotel guest does not guarantee you a table.

Hotel has a perfect location next to the lake with amazinkg view on it (I had a lakeview room). The room was furnishured a little bit oldfashioned. The breakfast was really tasty, only there was a problem with non skilled staff and a chaotic info about the tables reservation for breakfast, not what you expect of the hotel of this level. And parking is not organized very efficiently, every time I had to let my car somewhere on not very appropriate place (bus stop for example) and go to the hotel ask for navigation where to park.

The hotel itself is the grand dame of Lake Bled and although part of chain that own other hotels in Bled, it has its OWN charm and atmosphere. The staff though - wow, what a fabulous bunch of people. Nothing was too much trouble and they had a smile for everyone. They appreciated my very poor Slovenia which caused a lot of humour! They very kindly moved me when I explained the room was fine but rather small for me staying a week and wow, thank you, the room was amazing - the view to die for! Unfortunately the half board we'd booked wasn't available and we ate instead at the Park Hotel (where I had fun with the robots - sending them off in different directions - oops!) but the breakfast was fabulous and with THAT view, very special indeed. I loved the swimming platform area (the lake was definitely warmer than the indoor pool) and the lifeguards very charming (and effective watched them a few times helping out oarsmen going round in circles!) The water is crystal clear and gorgeous to swim in. Overall I'd say one of the most wonderful stays in a hotel I've had - would recommend 100%
