Reviewed May 7, 2012

This is an excellent hotel. The owner Luka is extremely helpful and friendly.The price of the accommodation is very reasonable and the breakfast was lovely. We tried 3 of the 5 restaurants that Luka recommended, and they were all very good. It is a really well run hotel,with free wi-fi and an honesty bar. Highly recommended.

We opted to not go with the high price lake view rooms at other hotels. Garni Hotel Berc was a five minute walk down to the lake and the perfect place to stay! The building has a Swiss chalet feel with lots of wood carving inside and out. Bedrooms were good sized with duvets on the bed. Bathrooms were modern with a nice size shower and hair dryer. Our rooms had a small balcony looking out over the countryside. Luka and his staff were very helpful in answering questions and talking to us if we happened to be sitting outside on the bench in front of the hotel. Breakafst was simple with breads, cheeses, meat, etc., but certainly adequate. One nice feature is the self serve refrigerator in the breakfast room where sodas, beer, etc. were available. You simply filled out a card on what you had taken and paid for it when you checked out. Wifi was avialble in the rooms, but there also was a computer available for guest use in the common area. Surroundings were very quiet for sleep at night. I'd highly recommend staying here while you are in Bled. Great personal service! Only thing to keep in mind is they do not take credit cards for payment, but there are several ATMS in town.

Room Tip: We had 1, 2, and 4 which were on the main floor- no stairs.

We wholeheartedly agree with all the other reviews - this is a great hotel to stay in at Lake Bled. Luka could not have been more helpful or friendly at the Manager. The room was great - clean and quite spacious. The location is fabulous -very close walking distance to the lake, restaurants and anywhere else in the town. The breakfast was plentiful. Overall we thought the hotel had a great atmosphere and we will definitely be back to visit again.

We had an excellent stay here end of Feb 2012, in room 2, for 3 nights.

Luka the host made us feel welcome despite us travelling off season and for 1 evening, being the only guests!


The continental breakfast was plentiful and a good selection of quality items - meats, cheeses, pates, salad items, fruits, cereals, yoghurts, breads.... and delicious biscuits!

The room was a good size, the beds comfortable and the shower hot with good pressure.

Luka also has bikes available for guest use. As they were sturdy mountain bikes, we ventured further afield to Vintgar Gorge - a 4km ride north of Bled, but with amazing views and the Gorge itself was amazing to visit - definitely recommend!

The location of the hotel was also ideal. In walking distance are three fabulous places to eat:
- Hotel Vila Bled (special occasion/high end)
- Ostarija Peglez'n (great, fresh food, amazing value)
- Vila Ajda (bartender so friendly, made to feel at home, food delicious and good value)

All in all, would definitely recommend Hotel Berc and if we come back to Bled, will revisit!

Boutique Austrian Chalet style designed hotel within walking distance of the beautiful Bled Lake.

Shaped pine looking timber cottage, that looked quite new. wood panelling inside the rooms that makes it feel very authentic.

Comfortable beds and spacious room.

Ample continental buffet breakfast with good selection of food.

On site car parking (free)

Good hot shower in nice bathroom.

Friendly and helpful reception. The manager even lent me his personal map to use on a day trip and showed me all the hidden nearby gems to visit.

Very reasonable price for the idyllic location compared to other establishments nearby.

Don't get this place mixed up with its older sister accommodation the Pansion Berc.

Honesty bar (self serve pay for what you drink) at very reasonable price.

Lake Bled is a wonderful location, it is so beautiful and yes girls very romantic. It is also a great location for day/half day trips to nearby mountain regions and gorges and also beautiful walks. This place is like a fairy tale.

We stayed here again to see Bled in the Winter. Luka and his family were as wonderful as ever, from the warm welcome to help on everything. It really is a chilled relaxed experience and Bled is amazingly quiet at Christmas with a lovely candlelight procession around the lake on Christmas eve. The Garni Brec, is fanastic value for money and we now would stay nowhere else.

My wife did the research this time. She found Hotel Berc and so we went in October half-term (wife is a teacher :-(). And we weren't disappointed in any way (except for the weather and you can't blame tripadvisor for THAT.) The hotel was attractive, quiet, clean, spacious, well located and good value. The owner (Luka) was an enthusiastic host who was there with help and advice when it was needed. In fact, everything we had read on tripadvisor was correct. Lake Bled and the surrounding areas were charming (hire a car)..and on the sunny days (only two in a week!) the lake looked spectacular. The Locals were all friendly and mostly spoke good English (speaking Slovenian is notoriously difficult, unless you are Slovenian, I suppose) and we found some excellent restaurants for hearty Slovenian and Italian style meals. Special mention goes to the 3 meals we had the restaurant in Penzion Meyer almost next door to the Hotel, where the food was authentic, and good value and the waiter (David) made our meals enjoyable. We hope too many people don't go so we can enjoy another week there in 2012.
