This is a lovely old fashioned hotel in the mountains in Slovenia next to a lovely lake on the Soca River. You can swim in the lake (it's cold though!) or hire kayaks or canoes just a couple of minutes walk away. The hotel looks a bit dated but has a lot of charm and has nice spacious comfortable rooms. The breakfast is fine although not remarkable and the staff (a father & son) are really friendly and cannot do enough to help. The place really does have a lot of charm and is in a lovely quiet location; it is perfectly situated for walking and kayaking & rafting trips on the Soca riva (which I highly recommend!). There are some lovely walks nearby.The 'lake view' rooms do not really overlook the lake very well as there are trees blocking the view..which otherwise would be absolutely stunning as the lake is an amazing turquoise colour. There is also a road in between the hotel & the lake which can be noisy in the mornings as the logging trucks brake to go over the bridge; as there is no aircon you might want the windows open on hot nights and this might disturb light sleepers; if this is the case ask for a room at the back! it is a really quiet sleepy little place most of the time- very relaxing. The staff were really helpful, especially the son of the owner.
