Vila Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 December 2012

My husband and I were looking for a few days away to relax, unwind and enjoy each other's company, and Vila Park was the perfect place to do this. The room was beautiful - modern, clean, a good size, and with an immaculate bathroom and a private balcony - and the food was homely, tasty and plentiful. The owner was welcoming and chatty, but not overbearing, and the setting couldn't have been more relaxing - the loaction is so peaceful and very beautiful. We went walking around Lake Bohinj on one day, and up to Vogel to ski on another, but otherwise sat on our balcony or by the open fire downstairs reading our books. Maybe if you want lots of nightlife this isn't the place for you, but otherwise, I couldn't recommend this place more.

We came across this hotel quite by accident whilst walking around Lake Bohinj. The setting was wonderful and the hotel from the outside is the perfect picture postcard. We went to see if there were any vacancies and the owner gave us a business card with the web address so when we got back to our current hotel we went onto trip advisor and looked at the reviews. We immediately telephoned and made a reservation.
Jana is the owner of this wonderful hotel she only has a Chef and a couple of house staff for cleaning. She is a force of nature a wonderful host very helpful in every respect. The rooms are superb right up there with the very best, spotlessly clean, modern design, all fittings and furniture of high quality, add to this there is free WiFi throughout the hotel.
Reading one review there was a criticism of the layout of the breakfast/dining room making guests share a table. As it was fairly late in the season we never encountered this as there were only three couples in the hotel. However if this is a concern for some people I'm sure this could easily be remedied simply by moving a few tables around. Another complaint in the review were the rigid times for breakfast and evening dinner. we did not find this a problem at all and you have to be realistic when you consider this is a one woman show, everybody has to have a little time to themselves.
Along with the rest of the hotel the evening dinner and breakfast were superb and the wine was always good quality and reasonable cost.
This hotel is perfectly positioned for walks around lake bohinj, the savica slap and for the Vogal cable car. We will be visiting this wonderful country again and when we come back to this particular area we will most definitely stay at this truly wonderful hotel

There is no question that Vila Park is in a stunning location - Lake Bohinj is but a minute's walk away, and you can hike up into the surrounding mountains from the front door. Equally, the hotel is immaculately clean and the food is fresh, varied and tasty. We stayed for two nights, and slept uninterruptedly for both, waking to enjoy the beautiful view from our private balcony.

However, we did find that the hospitality might not be to everyone's tastes. The owner tries to be friendly, but it's all just a bit too much and too forced. Equally, as a hotel that does not allow children, the dining arrangements are rather odd - everyone has to eat at the same time and tables are grouped in fours, so most tables were two couples forced to interact with one another. Fortunately, the people seated next to us were delightful, but we didn't find being asked to dine with strangers to be the romantic experience we'd hoped for, and dined out the following evening, foregoing our paid-for half-board.

Most people will fall in love with the location of Vila Park, and we did have a good stay (and wonderful time in the incredibly natural surroundings) and these are relatively trivial complaints - but if you travel to be independent, value your personal space, and don't wish for your day to be organised by someone else as you eat breakfast, we'd probably suggest elsewhere.

We have just returned from our first trip to Slovenia - entranced by the country and more than that by Jana and her hotel.

The hotel is absolutely as beautiful as it looks online - immaculate decor and spotlessly clean (including the cream carpets throughout), and so peaceful. The bathroom was polished and cleaned within an inch of its life every single day we were there. Jana is a lovely person who is very proud of her hotel and totally focussed on caring for her guests. She wakes at 5am and is constantly on the go making sure that guests have all they could wish for until 10 or 11pm when she retires to her dolls house home in the grounds to sleep. Furthermore she is full of friendliness and laughter.

We are picky eaters one of whom eats no pork or spices and the other who eats no vegetables. Even our contrary eating habits couldn't confound Jana or her chef who produced fantastic food every day.

During our stay, at our request Jana arranged a taxi for six of us to go to Lublijana for the day - only one hour's journey by car. A stunning and laid-back city which we need to return to some time as one day was not long enough.

We also journeyed to Lake Bled on the local bus - the boat trip out to the island and the carriage ride were fantastic as were the typical Slovenian cakes.

At the end of each day though we returned to Jana's small but perfect refuge from the outside world. We met other guests who felt equally fortunate and in the dining room there was a happy buzz of conversation and sharing of ideas - what others had done already and were planning to do.

I recommend this hotel wholeheatedly ... If you don't stay here at least once you are missing the opportunity of a lifetime.

Chrissy and I have just stayed here for the 4th year in row. In every respect the standards of this beautiful and spotless hotel have remained totally consistent. Jana's hospitality and attention to the needs of her guests is superb and most importantly heartfelt. The menu is always a delight and the chef produces excellent cuisine. Top notch! In summary the incredible location, wonderful service, amazing value and welcome means that we will be returning here for many years to come. We cannot stay away!

We spent 3 nights here in June 2012 found Jana the most congenial hostess. Rooms were spotless, meals 5 star. Setting at the end of the lake was out of this world. The whole region was pristine and the walks were great. Weather did not stop our adventures but unfortunately no relaxing in the wonderful garden. Was a very peaceful, restful place.

I have been staying here for the last 10 years and it never disappoints. This small hotel has the best location at Bohinj. It really is location location location. Although there is also the lovely Jana who runs the place with great style and aplomb. it just has everything going for it.. Very stylish place to stay at a reasonable price.
