This hotel is located (almost) slopeside to a very respectable ski area which still had great ski conditions during our visit (end March). This hotel is quite literally a hidden gem nestled within the Slovakian Low Tatras mountains and is highly recommended for those who want to experience something a bit less touristy but extremely comfortable and fun. This hotel has been recently renovated and all the rooms are a nice size and decently appointed. As I was attending a conference being held within the hotel I ate mostly at the hotel restaurant. I was never disappointed with the food, and the service was always top notch.
The one item which totally blew me away was the spa which is available to hotel guests. Quite literally this alone would make anyone want to come to this part of Europe, you have to see it to believe it.
There is actually lots to do in the area besides skiing, there is a large cave system which has been opened for guided tours (caution for those with young kids, the "short" tour includes walking up and down 1000 steps), and this area of Slovakia has many thermal spas which you can sample. Oh and by the way, everything is much more affordable in this part of the Old Continenent: Less than two Euro for a pint of beer, and 25 Euros for a full day of skiing (1000 m vertical) are but two examples of why I wholeheartedly recommend this destination to others.
The only drawback is it is not as accessible as the more traditonal ski areas in Europe due to the lack of good air connections (closest big airport is Krakow Poland), but I found the roads better than expected so this is more of an observation than anything else. The other nice thing about the area is that Tesco has invaded Slovakia with a vengeance, so there is great shoppping in just about every decent sized town including Liptovsky Mikulas, 20 min from the hotel.
