I stayed at Resen Lodge as one of a group of 8 walkers from Dunstable and we stayed for what proved to be an extremely enjoyable week.
The Lodge itself is in a perfect location for exploring the fasinating and unspoilt Bulgarian countryside. Its situated about 15 minutes drive from Veliko Tarnova and is on the outskirts of a small village which has bars, shops and a restaurant. There is also a small general store about 5 minutes walk away.
I had one of the 6 air conditioned double rooms, it was extremely clean and spacious with modern furniture. The bathroom was excellent with a very efficient shower. The lodge has a small and very comfortable bar and restaurant which is operated by the owner , Ronnie.
Probably the greatest asset of the place however was Ronnie . He devoted himself to the group, initially picking us up at Sofia at 3 in the morning for the 3 hour drive to the lodge. Cooking meals to our request or driving us to various locations, including some excellent restaurants. Using his extensive knowledge of all things Bulgarian he was able to set up and facilitate a number of first class walks. A more genial host you would be hard pressed to find.
I can totally recommend Resen Lodge.
