Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

We stayed for 2 nights. The rooms are basic, but nice and clean. No bath but amazing shower (nothing fancy but v hot and powerful). Beds are fairly soft, and basic, but do the job.

Breakfasts are lovely, eggs cooked to order, and a buffet of hams, fruit and bred. A homemade smoothie made daily also.

On Monday nights hotel guests are invited to 'wine tasting'. This was good fun, nice wine and traditional food, and for €15pp it's a steal.

It's only a 2min walk to lake bled (down steps and slope), a great location to explore.

We spoke to other travellers who also loved this place. If we came back to bled, we'd probably stay here.

If you want to get away from the block hotels, this is a great option! Very clean room, comfortable, good wi-fi reception. I only wish we had stayed longer! The staff was very helpful and accommodating. Location was about a 5 to 10 minute walk from the lake. The breakfast was very good with a lot of variety. Dinners at the restaurant are highly recommended.

Booked this Penzion after reading about it in Lonely Planet
As soon as we arrived the owners could not have been more helpful and friendly.
In a great position, we had a fabulous room with a view to the castle. Breakfast is great, heaps of choices as well as hot scrambled or boiled eggs
Restaurant for dinner is exceptional
In my opinion it deserves more than 3 stars

Thank you Penzion Mayer for our 2 wonderful stop overs in Lake Bled on our long journey from the UK to Croatia & back. Beautiful hotel close to the lake. Spacious bedrooms & bathrooms immaculately clean with attention to detail for guests & wonderful food in your lovely restaurant. Staff very friendly & welcoming & thank you for helping to park our boat!

We stayed at the Pension Mayer as part of a twin centres holiday with Crystal Summer, the previous week we were at the Pension Milka in Krajnska Gora. The Mayer is situated in its own pretty gardens just outside of the main centre of Bled. It was quiet, immaculately clean and had a very homely feel. The staff were very friendly and welcoming which seems to be a trait of pensions of this size in Slovenia. The food was delicious and was enjoyed on the patio overlooking the gardens, and we were lucky enough to be staying half-board so got to sample most of the menu!

We spent some of our time walking around the lake and to Vintgar Gorge, however, Lake Bohinj, with its pretty villages and towering peaks, is just a short bus journey away (from the main bus station) so don't miss the opportunity for a visit here.

This is a great little hotel. Excellent buffet breakfast. Excellent location. Rooms are
spacious, comfortable & charming with the pine furniture. Bathroom is large. Had a great
view of Lake Bled. Just a short 5 min. walk to the lake. Would definitely recommend this
hotel & would definitely stay there again. Had dinner there 1 of the nights & had
fresh grilled trout. Really good.

The Mayer was our home base as we toured around the Lake Bled area in May. Location, rooms and service were all first-class. What other travelers seemed to overlook is the kitchen. Yes, the breakfast buffet is enough good food to power you all day long. And the comfy rooms with their alpine chalet decor are warm and welcoming. But my favorite part of the day was sitting down after hiking or paddling for hours and going through the splendid wine list and getting the rundown on what the chef had in mind for dinner that evening. We ate dinner at Mayer 4 out of the 5 nights we were there. It just got better every night. Come. Stay. Eat!
