We stayed in the wonderful Penzion Mayer for 7 nights before our wedding at Villa Bled. Our room (203) overlooked Castle Bled, the lake and the beautiful Mayer gardens. Dietmar was the friendliest of hosts and even surprised us with a gift of sparkling Slovenian wine once he found out we were there for our wedding. The food at the restaurant was delicious at very reasonable prices and I have never had a better breakfast throughout many years of travels. Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean, we had cable television, free wireless internet and a lovely balcony. The penzion is a 2 minute walk to the lake and situated in a beautiful spot overlooking the lake and away from traffic. Dietmar was so helpful and friendly. I cannot rate our stay at the Penzion Mayer higher. Lake Bled has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world and if you're thinking of visiting, think no further - do it!

What a wonderful little hotel! We have just come back from a week in Bled and we couldn't have had a better time. Slovenia is a wonderful country, Bled is a stunningly pretty little town, and Pension Mayer is very possibly my favourite ever hotel! It's only small, and it's not five star in terms of facilities (no tea and coffee; no pool, though cut-price use of the one next door) but for warmth of welcome, top class service, gorgeous appearance, good location and most of all wonderful food it was five star through and through. I wish everywhere I visited had a Pension Mayer!

Just returned from a wonderful week at Pension Mayer and I knew I had to post a review of this fantastic hotel. From the welcome drink on arrival, to the wine-tasting evening, the beautiful location and appearance of the hotel, everything was exactly what you want from a hotel which has been top-rated in the Thomson brochure.
The selection at breakfast was great, with plenty of fresh fruit and a pretty snazzy coffee machine! Evening meals were even better, with three delicious courses every night. We didn't have the same thing twice throughout the whole week. The unlimited salad bar is a lovely touch, and the service was impeccable.
I suppose we should have know it would be good - when we were being transferred from the airport a lady asked where we were staying. When I told her, her response was 'oooh, it's lovely there'. Even one of the reps said it's the best in Bled! I couldn't agree more :o)

We couldn't resist another stay at this fantastic Pension. This was the fourth visit and we enjoyed it as much as always. The staff are so welcoming. The rooms are comfortable. Our room had a small balcony overlooking the well kept garden.
The food is excellent, particularly the breakfast buffet which has a great selection. The house wines are good and very reasonably priced.

It is a short stroll into the centre where there are plenty of cafes and bars. There are quite a number of walks around the area including a lovely walk around the lake which takes around two hours, with a number of places to stop for a coffee or beer.

I'm sure we will be back for a fifth time!

We stayed here for a week as part of our honeymoon. We booked directly with the hotel online and the pictures on the website really lived up to ourexpectations, it was beautiful. It's not a high rise hotel and it's not right next to the lake but we loved it! It was really quaint with beautiful gardens, really friendly helpful staff and a lovely clean room. We had a large balcony overlooking the gardens and our room and bathroom were large, nice corner bath and double sinks! It was less than a 5 minute stroll down to the lake and lovely and quiet. The breakfasts were amazing, a huge spread of everything you could want and the restauarant there was great too with a huge selection of wines from their cellar. The owner helped us hire a car which was really helpful and got us a total bargain and a brand new car. The atmosphere there is really relaxed which helps you to relax too! There are free bikes you can use and cookies on reception all the time, and free passes that you can use to the spa in the big hotel next door.

Lake Bled was beautiful and a perfect honeymoon destination and I'd definitely recommend staying in Penzion Mayer. You could pay a fortune for a huge hotel overlooking the lake but they all looked impersonal and unfriendly, I would choose to stay here over any of those places!

I stayed in Pension Mayer for 3 nights on a recent trip to Slovenia. I booked the accommodation after reading positive reviews on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. We arrived in Bled, in the rain, after a bus trip from Ljubljana and rang to get directions to the pension. The owner agreed to collect us in his car, something we really appreciated. The pension is set in beautifully manicured gardens and the accommodation was spotless throughout. It is situated in an excellent location - less than a 5 minute walk to the centre. Our meals were on a half board basis and both breakfast and evening meals were delicious. The owner and staff were very pleasant and accommodation and always willing to help if needed. The rooms have a mini bar and safe. The only negative about the pension was the lack of air comditioning in the rooms. During our trip temperatures were not high so this was not a problem. I highly recommend this accommodation and suggest that you book directly with the Pension Mayer to get a great deal.

Almost surrounded by hulking, sterile-looking hotels, Pension Mayer sits as a calm from the accommodation storm. This chalet-type pension, featuring a hint of tradition with all the 21st century conveniences, is an ideal place to stay while enjoying the pleasures of a Lake Bled holiday. What’s more , at a mere 83 euros per night, it represents outstanding value for money.
Our room at the Mayer was more than ample in size, with an adorable outside sitting area that overlooked the main grounds. Satellite TV is on offer, as is a mini-bar, but perhaps most noteworthy was our oversized and quietly elegant bathroom which was more in keeping with a four-star hotel than a contemporary chalet., While there were no lake views, the pension is a mere five-minute walk to crystal clear Lake Bled. In addition, the pension, while located close to a few oversized hotels and overnight tour buses, remains quiet, perfect for travelers seeking a break from the holiday hoopla.
The service at the Mayer was friendly and efficient, and there were some nice surprises, too. Each morning delicious sugar cookies are on offer at the front desk, and the Mayer also features an extensive and heart-healthy breakfast buffet which can be enjoyed in the pension’s pretty courtyard. Also, the Mayer has on its premises an attractive and well regarded restaurant. Don’t miss the salmon steaks.
Given its many advantages, the Pension Mayer is a can’t beat destination when staying near Lake Bled. Indeed, the Mayer would be a solid value at 100-120 values, but given its current price of 83 euros for a double room, it marks superior value for money.
