    Great newly renovated hotel!
    We had a great stay. The hotel has only been reopened for 2 weeks, as it underwent a lot of renovation through Winter. Now it is a new beautiful hotel. The rooms were spacious and stylish. Very comfortable. We are so glad we picked this hotel. The staff were very lovely and always wanted to assist us. The breakfast was also good. Location was (in my opinion) the best on the lake! We paid a bit more to have a lake view room, and we were so glad we did. The view was amazing from our balcony. Only minor down side was the hotels spa facility. I had a 50 min massage and it was very horrible. One of the worst massages I have had. The wellness center staff also did not share the same welcoming nature as the hotel staff. I had a second treatment at the hotels sister hotel across the road and it was very very good. It made up for the bad experience. Would stay here again.

    European tour
    We spent 2 nights on our anniversary at Lake Bled. The hotel was immaculate and all staff adhere to the mask wearing and all COVID requirements. We had a double room with lake view and we were blown away with the view, breathtaking! The room is eco friendly with lots of wood, pillow options but because of COVID no tea/ coffee making but we got it on request, the mini fridge is empty but on to fill yourself and bath robe and slippers on request. The restaurant is also buffet only but again gloves provide and masks when choosing food. Breakfast had a great choice of hot and cold foods. I must mention Thomas the manager, he is an absolute star, very professional and customer service skills are amazing. I would highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Lake Bled

    Disappointing breakfast experience
    The overall stay was good and we actually liked the hotel a lot - except for a disturbing breakfast experience the morning when we were about to leave. We were told the breakfast is free-seating so we picked a quiet table next to the window, noticing that a “reservation” table sign was placed upside down, we assumed that the table is reserved for dinner as it happened at some other hotels where we stayed in Bled. We enjoyed the food and the view very much until a rather rude Caucasian old man came to us, turned the “reservation” sign to us, told us that they have reserved the table for breakfast, put down two eggs in front of us, and demanded that we leave the table for him and another lady. Knowing nothing and being put in a rather embarrassing situation where the house is full with other tourists, we left the table with a feeling that we were treated disrespectfully so we went to the restaurant reception, of which we were offered no help. Upon explaining the situation to him, except for keep repeating to us that a table can’t be reserved for breakfast so this can’t happen, he has no intention to help us explain this to the rude old man, nor helping us to find another table. In the end we had to tell the old man ourselves that the hotel said he can’t reserve a table, where he pretended he couldn’t understand English and ignored us when in fact he has asked us to leave in English. Worst breakfast experience so far in Europe and very disappointing assistance from hotel staff.

    Amazing resort and spa/wellness facilities 5*. Breakfast needs more vegetarian options. Lunch and Dinner is very hard for vegetarians also. Hotel is very nice and clean. Staff are generally nice, however the concept of room service rolls out the door very quickly.

    Everything was really lovely, my room was very clean- which is always my main concern at hotels. The pool area was fantastic, and so was the breakfast. We had a room with a lake view and it was stunning...... I have no complaints, it was terrific.

    Passive aggressive staff
    The hotel is very modern and really nice to stay in. However, the staff are comically rude. Breakfast stops at 10am, one of the mornings we arrived at 9:55am and got our food and sat beside the window looking out over the amazing view of the lake. Just after 10am while we were still eating they cleared away the buffet breakfast which is standard for hotels but they pulled down all the blinds to block the view. A very unsubtle passive aggressive way to get us to get out of the restaurant as it was now just past 10am. So we ate the rest of our breakfast in the semi dark room with an amazing view the other side while several waiters tutted. We scuttled on out of there at 10:10.

    Best view+room, great location+service+facilities
    Pros: Location: (walking) 5 min to lake, 10 min to bus station Service: we got upgraded to the suite at a tiny fee View: 270-degree panoramic view of the lake including the Bled Island and Bled Castle; I believe this is the hotel/ room with the best view due to its direction and relatively high altitude (on a small ?slope), check on Google earth and you will understand; you can basically take a panorama with your phone at the balcony and it will look better than most of the photos you take at ground level Room: within top-5 of the best rooms I have stayed in; no complaints; very well designed, huge, got everything except a kitchen (who needs that when there are so many great restaurants), recently renovated, modern look and premium materials Sleep: very very good sleep with nice bed, temperature and silent surroundings Dining: breakfast included, not the best but satisfactory, dinner at pool-side restaurant was great, nice strawberry sorbet and Bled cream cake Facilities: loads including poolsssss, spas, gym, easy booking of local tours from hot air balloon trips to air-plane rides Cons: Price may be a concern but what you get is compatible with what you pay for, probably a bit more in fact The front door is a bit far away from the main road and those not renting a car need to walk some long slopes
