“exceptionally good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2009

highly impressive. best of four places we stayed (by far), that were all of similar price - but this place goes so much further to make your stay comfortable in many respects. Excellent food - home baked bread, pretty good coffee (for slovenia anyway, it isnt their national strong point!) excellent and extensive breakfast buffet (the best quality of our entire holiday in slovenia eg fresh fruit salad that didnt include tinned fruit like most other places). Fixed dinner evening menu (typical of all pensions like this) but they can prepare an alternative if you ask in advance. Superb views particularly from rooms 3-5 that look over a rural scene to the mountains (we stayed in room 4) There was also a room above us on the top floor but dont know the room number of that one. Wonderful gardens, hard tennis court, free bike hire (they had about a dozen decent bikes); outside bar with bottled beer and also beer on tap, wines etc (honesty system - just note down what you have had). Whole place is pristine, clean, spotless, friendly. Decor very traditional, might not suit everyones taste. Spa/wellness centre adjacent - it looked great but they were booked up both times I tried to get a massage so perhaps book in advance (prices looked similar to the UK). Very quiet place - nothing to disturb a good nights sleep (no passing traffic etc). Highly recommended and thanks to previous reviewers for a reliable recommendation

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights in June 2009 and had a lovely time.

The penzion is very well located, just a 10 minute walk from the lake along a very quiet residential road. The place is absolutely spotless - the bathroom had been newly renovated and was lovely, very nice shower, the room itself was perfectly adequate but perhaps could do with a bit of an update, this would be my only suggestion!

Facilities are fab - Mateja will let you use the internet, bikes and bike locks, tennis racquets and ball etc all free. She also had a great self service bar in the garden with a drinks fridge and beer on tap so you can help yourself and simply write down what you had in a log book.

We ate our meals in the penzion on three nights and it was outstandingly good and fantastic value, only 10 euros per room extra for the meal! Four courses every night and a bbq one evening, really well presented and tasty food. The breakfast was excellent with a huge range of choices.

Mateja is lovely and goes out of her way to be helpful - she is so sweet that she even presented me with some homemade jams on my birthday!

If you're an easyjet passenger there is a good value shuttle to Ljubljana airport for 13 euros which will pick you up from outside the penzion so make sure to ask for this to be booked!

Definitely give this place a try!

My friend and I stayed here for four nights and couldn't have been happier. Our room was spacious, clean and modern. The family that runs the B & B was gracious and helpful, even coming to pick me up at the train station when I had trouble finding a cab. A short walk from the lake, it's quiet and private. We played tennis on the clay courts and had extremely affordable massages as the spa. They offer you everything you might need- bikes and helmets, umbrellas, tennis rackets, etc. They have a computer for guests to use and free wifi on site. We chose to do half-board for three of the four nights and you can't find a better deal for the price-- four course meals! They were very accommodating of my food restrictions as well, and even packed us a to-go breakfast when we had to leave very early on our last day. I would return here in a heartbeat and cannot speak highly enough about Mateja and her family.

My wife and me stayed for 2 nights at the Alp Pension.
It is a lovely family run pension with modern and comfortable rooms, very warm and helpful service and in particular great family style dinners (best food we had in Slovenia).
We got a great help and tips in planning our trips including maps and ambrellas (was raining first day). Did not try the Wellness center. Other helpful facilities we did not try are self-serve bar with excellent prices and free bikes.

A tip:
You may get a better deal when booking directly (rather than booking.com as we did):

We spent two nights in Lake Bled at Alp Penzion in April. Though the weather was cold and rainy, we couldn't have been more pleased with our hotel choice. Our rooms were very nice...especially the honeymoon room my husband and I shared. After reading other reviewers positive comments, we decided to eat dinner at the hotel both nights. We're glad we did. The food was quite good and was presented beautifully. Mateja and her staff take great pride and work very hard. We found the Slovenians to be lovely people and Lake Bled to be gorgeous. We plan to visit again--perhaps next year--and we will return to Alp Penzion.
