This hotel enjoys a spectacular view of the fairy tale island on lake Bled directly opposite the late dictator Toto's summer palace now an upmarket hotel.
It is not easy to find first time around due to the inadequate local signposting but we eventually came to this stunning location some 200 metres above the lake- a steep walk down. This will not suit all but ramblers & the many cyclists are in their element.
Bled is quieter than I had expected and taxis round are few and pricey (E10 each way for 5 km into town). It is also smaller with relatively little to do at night- Spain this ain't. However the place grew on us during our week stay and the apprehension of the first day soon evaporated. The fantastic staff at this small boutique Hotel had a lot to do with this. Unobtrusive but always there to help immediately when asked even if request bore no relation to one's stay such as printing out e- mails for later in our holiday. They skilfully calmed me when my car was blocked in by an ageing small vehicle- it belonged to the mayor who was giving a speech and a wonderful 15 min unexpected audience with this delightf character then followed!
Views of lake from Hotel quite stunning none better than after a storm where rainbow seemed to come off the church on the island.
Good indoor swimming pool - sauna and massage available not used. Excellent Internet connections. No pressure to use restaurant but as good a luxury establishment that I can recall- the stunning Slovenian Chardonnay will long be recalled on my palate.
A restful luxury week for 2 50 something professionals was the request and delivered to perfection.
