Have stayed here a few times on business and for leisure, as it's an ideal location to organize big congress or just a small meeting and workshop. The newly refurbished hotel is beautifully decorated with fresh, calming alpine décor and an amazing lobby. Large, spacious halls, and unique views over the lake are breath-taking. Numerous rooms are spanning over five floors above. It's the standard of event organization and guest experience that sets this hotel and congress centre apart. Being a regular MICE customer, everything is always on point, beautifully presented and absolutely immaculate attention to detail. Thanks to Mateja and Tomaž who are awesome hosts of our meetings. The breakfast offering and coffee-breaks for our participants are delicious with attention on fresh local produce. Excellent spa treatments after the day of work, and overall a superb stay in Bled.

Despite there being some positive aspects to this hotel, it's impossible for us to leave a good review. There were so many mistakes and errors around our booking; and then rooms not cleaned (despite us asking), parking mishaps (we seemed to be here during a presidential visit which clearly took priority over the guests) and other things that fell so short. The most upsetting thing was that we arrived with our baby to a room that had the incorrect bed in it and no bath, even though we had both booked to have a cot and bath, as well as emailed in advance, knowing we'd arrive late after a flight and our daughter would need sleep. We were moved into a much nicer room, with more space and a sublime view (which served us very well), but not having coffee for more than one night of the four nights we stayed, not having our bins emptied (which had dirty nappies in) and also, not having a safe baby bed (I actually had to ask for a replacement when we finally did get a cot, because I didn't deem the first one met safe standards) meant we had a poor experience of the hotel, though we did have a lovely break. Also, this doesn't feel like a well-being hotel as much as a corporate hotel where people have business meetings. The spa was good, but the pool was rather overrun at the weekend, which isn't so great during Covid-times. The outdoor pool, which I was really looking forward to, was tiny. If we travelled to Lake Bled again, we would choose somewhere more intimate and independently run... There are many options and the hospitality we experienced in some of the local restaurants was utterly fantastic.

Charming guest services manager assigned me this room with lovely view. Dont miss the barefoot walking path inspired by the naturopath Rikli, who essentially established tourism in Bled. Lovely water area that is included with your stay (along with a most comprehensive breakfast buffet). Sauna area is an additional 11E supplement (and I think is included with massage/package). My only suggestion would be to increase the temperature of one of the hot tub pools (there are multiple) and not allow children in it. Shame on TA reviews who have lowered the ratings for this hotel based on observing some customers not wearing masks. Masks dont stop covid. Look up virus size vs.mask size if you are still confused about basic science.

Nice and tidy hotel in a great location. The staff is friendly but still goes to highlight the gentlemen at the reception. Beautiful wellness center. The food is delicious and not that expensive. I highly recommend it.

DO NOT stay here if you are worried about COVID-19 transmission. In spite of being a 'wellness' hotel of some sort, about 25% of the HUNDREDS of diners at breakfast were not wearing masks while wandering the buffet. Slovenia has very high infection and mortality rates, along with relatively low vaccinations. This is dangerous.
