Have just returned from beautiful Lake B...
"Have just returned from beautiful Lake Bled with my daughter. The Park Hotel sits right by the lake with beautiful views from the lake-view balconies of the castle, church and of course the lake. The rooms were clean and plenty large enough with a nice balcony. The food was excellent with plenty of choices at each meal - including 2 Slovenian Nights with music and wine/schnapps. My daughter is a very fussy eater and especially enjoyed the pancakes each morning at breakfast. There was always plenty of fresh fruits and salads. The home made ice-cream needed to be tried each evening! The cafe opposite serves the most delicious Park Cake that must be tried! The lake is easy to walk around with plenty of places to stop on route for a drink or snack. You can also take the tourist train or horse drawn carriage. The resort is just like the brochures - beautiful and peaceful. If you want a lively resort with shops and plenty of night-life, this is not for you - although there is a casino by the lake and all the hotels/bars have a variety of music playing during the evenings. One place I would definitely return to!"

Beautiful Lake Bled
"We thought the hotel offered excellent value for money. Considering all the food was served from a buffet, it was of excellent quality prepared on site from fresh ingredients. Staff were extremely helpful, friendly without being pushy, especially Sonja. Situation is right on the lake, close to all amenities. Room was a decent size and housekeeping of high standard. Resort offered plenty of activities, but is quiet enough for those just wanting a peaceful time."

"We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Park by Lake Bled. Our rooms (not lake side) were comfortable (and as a single traveller, I appreciated getting a standard size double room rather than the broom cupboard you often get!). The meals were buffet style and were excellent in quantity and quality. Breakfasts included the usual breads, pastries, cold meats, hot eggs bacon and sausages, and pancakes. Dinner was a little busy at times, but the staff were very quick to replenish empty trays. There was a good amount of choice for meat eaters, although perhaps not quite so much for a vegetarian (as frequently is the case in Europe). There was always a salad bar, 3 or 4 main courses and cakes/icecream/fruit for dessert. The public areas aren't quaint and cosy, more open plan; but the swimming pool and jacuzzi were nice - indoor on the top floor with a great view of the lake. The hotel has a great position right on the lake side but doesn't really have any outdoor space. I enjoyed the public crazy golf course right next door!"

"The Park Hotel has a excellent location, but we had noise problems from casino punters in the early hours and a humming sound caused by the lift. The food was acceptable but not great, salad or soup for starters,the main course had various options but the deserts were cake or ice cream. The hotel lacks outside seating areas and the lounge is plastic covered seats and tables. The hotel has a lot of coach parties stopping for one or two days and tend to be very elderly. As the two OAPs at the next table said " the place is full of geratrics and zombies". Also 14 days is too long, 7 days is enough to see the area."

Beautiful Setting, Great Cakes!
"Booked to go to the Park Hotel with Crystal Holidays last xmas. The hotel rooms were very comfortable, hot showers, mini bar, lots of wardrobe space. The cakes served at the hotel were amazing but the food served over the festive period was a bit disappointing. Not really xmassy!! Had the most amazing massage at the hotel by a really friendly lady, definitely worth doing but be prepared for the naked locals in the sauna!! Amazing swimming pool too. We did the caves tour which was quite good although quite a walk! Did the trip to capital which got a bit boring after about an hour of walking around in the cold. All the staff at the hotel were really helpful and the waitress we had in the evening was lovely. Lake Bled is a very romantic scenic place but once you have walked around the lake once, there is not a great deal to do there. The horse and carriage ride is a bit of a rip off as you have to share with another couple - very intimate - not!! It is worth venturing out and trying some of the local restaurants the food is great and not badly priced!!"

Brilliant modern hotel
"Bled is a beautiful resort and the Park hotel is right in the centre. It has been refurbished to a high standard and is very modern looking. The rooms are small but are warm, clean and more than adequate. The food is very nice but not a huge variety. Staff were all very friendly. The swimming pool was rather cold but had great views across the lake. I would recommend this hotel!"

"What a beautiful place to visit. Lake Bled has got to be one of the most stunning places to visit. So much to see so little time. Perfect holiday. The Park Hotel was brillent, the pool in particular (dont forget you can use the Wellness Centre aswell) I thought the food was delicious, varied for all tastes. The people are just the friendliest we have met in a while. Smiles all round. Spent a week on a skiing holiday, nothing better than coming back to hotel, relax in gorgeous hot natural spa pool, then off for some cool beers in the pub downstairs (devils cafe') Excellent time."

"My wife and I Stayed at the Park Hotel from 17th September - 22nd September. The hotel has a fantastic location in bled, it is advisable to book a room with a lake view as the view is stunning and will make your stay more enjoyable. The hotel was clean and the staff were helpful. The breakfasts had such a massive selection. The swimming pool is on the 5th floor of the hotel with fantastic views across the lake. Would recommend trips to Lake Bohinj and Vintgar Gorge, we hired a car at the airport so could travel around at our leisure. The countryside was so clean and tidy."
