We've just got back from a fantastic week in Kranjska Gora staying in Pension Lipa. We were made to feel very welcome in this small, family-run hotel. We stayed in room 5. The room was extremely comfortable, warm and kept immaculately clean throughout our stay and although small, had plenty of storage space. There's a small balcony overlooking the mountains. The shower was powerful and hot. There was a TV in the room, and although there are only a few English Language channels, some of the Slovenian stations had films in English with Slovenian subtitles.... not that you'll be spending much time in the room. The only slight drawback was that there are no tea or coffee facilities in the room, but that isn't particularly unusual.
As other reviewers have mentioned, breakfast and dinner are taken in the basement dining room. The food is good and the service was quick. We chatted to lots of people staying in the bigger hotels in the resort, and the food on offer in Lipa seemed the best by far. For dinner, there was a wide choice on the menu for all 3 courses (including 25 different pizzas) and is cooked to order, rather than buffet-style, meaning it's hot and fresh when it reaches your table.
The hotel is just 10 mins stroll from the slopes and 5 mins from the centre of the village, giving easy access to everything you need. It's location just outside the village centre means it's very quiet at night, so perfect for a restful night's sleep after a day on the ski slopes.
The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive.
This was our second ski-ing holiday and we found Kranjska Gora an ideal location. The scenery is stunning and the weather conditions were perfect for us, thanks to a fresh fall of snow early in the week. We booked lessons with the InterSport ski school and had a fantastic time. Our instructor struck a good balance between building our confidence and pushing us on. And the local prices aren't nearly as expensive as in the other, more popular ski resorts. On our last night we were drinking wine at 90 cents a glass in the Enka bar in the centre of the village.
One afternoon we went on an excursion to the beautiful Lake Bled - about 30 mins away by minibus and well worth the trip. We flew into/out of Salzburg and hadn't been keen on the idea of a 2-3 hour transfer. We needn't have worried, though. The scenery for much of the journey was amazing and only added to the holiday.
All in all then, a terrific holiday. I'm sure we'll go back.
