Generally great place to stay. Down side is the rooms are more of hostel quality, but are functional. No air con, titchy balcony. Checking in was a bit like faulty towers, got checked in and then asked to redo it again. Not happy after walking 12 miles on a hot day. Also disappointed they had not taken cases up to... More

We stayed here after our walking trip finished at lake bohinj. It was a nice enough place to stay, not sure it truly is 4 stars however. The room was comfortable enough, no air conditioning,but it was cool when we stayed. The breakfast was definitely quite limited, and one morning a huge Bus tour was there and all the food... More

The hotel is family run and offers a very warm & friendly welcome. The hotel is in a quiet spot set back off the road - the lake is about a 10 minute walk away. Our bedroom was very clean & had a fridge. My only criticism would be that as we stayed during a heatwave, the room was stifling... More

We are first time here, and feel like we are guests for years. Excellent service and very good food, combination of traditional and international kitchen. Pretty big rooms, and quiet rooms, most with view into the pine forest. Wonderful surroundings Bohinj lake, walking distance. Good for all seasons

We dined here on the recommendation of our hotel (Gasperin). You can choose a three course set meal, but we asked for a la carte, and then took up the recommendation of our waiter for a four course degustation. It was simply delicious! We had scrambled eggs and mushrooms to start, trout pan fried fillet with vegetables and a potato... More

One of the main reasons I like to visit this hotel is their wide range of massage therapies, which also include authentic ayurvedic treatments. Their massage therapist Badri comes from Nepal and he is just wonderful. He is very skilled, educated and very attentive to your condition. I suffer from occasional joint pain and swelling and I feel much better... More

Stayed for two days at this wonderful, family managed hotel. Stuff is really warm and friendly, food is just spot on, with local ingredients and they have wonderful wine card as well. If you are a chocolate lover, they also make their own chocolate. :) I would recommend this hotel to every individual who likes to explore, and live active... More
