When we read the reviews for Pod Skalo B&B, we saw comments about earplugs being provided, which seemed a bit curious. Once we booked the rooms, we were told we were in luck because the annual national costume festival would be during our stay. The town swells to almost three times the population. Okay, the earplugs were in case the adjacent pub became too loud. It rained during the day and evening so the festival was significantly downsized (to our disappointment). There were no noise concerns and we really doubt it would be a problem during a warm summer evening. We chose Pod Skalo because it was a short drive from Velika Planina. Pod Skalo had a comfortable, homey feel, starting with the friendly and helpful hosts. Rooms were not large, but they were clean and adequate for our needs. It definitely did not feel like a place offering ten rooms and a hostel—it was quiet and peaceful, and our hosts were attentive. The breakfast was very good and included locally sourced products. They will prepare eggs to your request. We appreciate the family history of Pod Skalo and really enjoyed our stay. We would not need to think twice about staying here again. Gostilna Repnik was the restaurant they recommended for our anniversary dinner and their recommendation was excellent. The food and service were top notch. The restaurant was about one mile from the hotel.…
I booked rooms to be close to the Arboretum where we participated in an event of the Slovenian Association of Rose Breeders. We stayed two nights at this small hotel where the rooms we had, were small, but clean, (I would like to have some more hooks in the bathroom - you might think to put these on the doors- belive me it would be helpful for more comfort). The breakfast was OK, quite rich and varied with real chicken eggs not from the store ... very good coffee, everything was tasty. Too bad there is no restaurant there (instead of the bar). At the reception we were kindly welcomed and we were provided with maps, touristic leaflets and a lot of valuable information about the region, restaurants, places and so on. We will recommend this hotel.
Fantastic place - very kind and helpfull crew, comfortable rooms, delicious breafasts based on local food. Also very good local beer in pub Pod Skalo. Pod Skalo is a perfect place for short or long stay - we choose long, because of beauty of Kamnisko-Savinjske Alpe and all Slovenia.And breathtaking view from Grajska terasa, on the hill just above Pod Skalo hotel:) Location is perfect - 1 minutes walikg to swimming pool, 5 minutes walkinkg from center of Kamnik, which is very nice, old town. 20 minutes by car to Ljubljana, 40 minutes to Bled, 80 minutes to Koper and Slovenian coast.
We were only one night, but we could stay longer because the staff is really really friendly. The rooms are clean and decorated with style. We will definetly return. The location is great for trips around Kamnisko Savinjske Alpe.
I only needed one night in my own room. I needed an ensuite and private room as Im aady travelling alone. Bonus was it is spotless in all areas and a filling fabulous breakfast. The room is not air conditioned nor does it have a TV but there is a lounge area with a tv and a communal kitchen. I would stay again. Value for money, great location etc etc.
