Stayed for a week to Board at the Bansko slopes. Really nice practical hotel, with good staff. Snowed for 3 days which made for some great powder and boarding and great views from the top slopes. We walked over to the gondola each day (easier I know in board boots than skis...) as we found the bus did take a... More

I appreciated that touch, even though I didn't... More

Came here with 11 friends on a longly awaited skiing holiday, absolutely loved it, the slopes are just a short shuttle ride away and great for beginners to intermediate skiers. Although when waiting for the shuttle back to the hotel from the slopes it never turned up on time so you were stud there waiting for 10 minutes or so.... More

Except that we waited like idiots for the shuttle to pick us after skiing for like 45 min, everything is almost acceptable. Breakfast cold, but you can manage. We will not come for the 2nd time here . We discovered bansko as really attractive, and for sure we will return in a different hotel

Have just returned from a 4 night ski trip, booked through Broadway Travel and staying at the Lion Hotel. What a fabulous hotel it is. The staff are sweet. The rooms are huge and immaculate. The food in the buffet, whilst not Michelin starred, is adequate and plentiful. We tried three treatments in the spa, all highly professional and thoroughly... More
