Can't ask for a lot more, I endorse what others have said - Alenka is unfailingly cheerful and willing to give information. Rooms are clean, bright and well equipped - also warm, useful on cold nights. A ten minute walk from the lake, but there are many delightful tracks other than walking along the road. Food can be variable, but remember that this is a budget hotel (ignore the fanciful star system that hotels seem to award themselves).
There is always lots of the food, heavily meat biased, though vegetarian is always offered among the four choices for main course in the evening meal. The salad bar is excellent, and breakfast sets one up well for the day - big choice of local hams, some cheese, several bread types, fruit, cereals, and usually scrambld eggs and those anaemic sausages so beloved on the continent.
This was our second visit, heartily recommended if you are going on a package holiday. They also get lots of local and touring trade too, so their reputation is pretty ok elsewhere too. Oh, and free wi-fi in the hotel, rooms and bar area.
