“Great location, Great food selection. Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2011

We spent a week at the hotel Kompas in mid-September. It was a couple of weeks from the end of the Summer season but the standard of service didn't reflect this. The hotel is located on the edge of the village with great access to ski lifts and a number of guided walking routes. We had the half-board option and couldnt fault the food. There was plenty to choose from and something for all tastes. We left a few pounds heavier than when we arrived. One thing we didn't do was drink much at the hotel bar. Prices there were around 75% of UK price equivalent but there was a much better atmosphere in the evening at the nearby Vopa Bar where drinks were around half the price. We paid extra to have a garden view room and were glad that we did. The back-drop of the mountains is something special. The room was otherwise comfortable and clean. We pretty much had the pool and jacuzzi to ourselves although the sauna did cost extra, which our holiday brochure didnt tell us. We had never been to Slovenia before but would definitely go back again. Kranjska Gora is a good location and has a really helpful tourist info office. There is also a regular bus service to Ljubljana which was easy to use. We loved it.

Room Tip: Paying a bit extra for the garden view was definitely worth it

We stayed for a walking holiday and were pleasantly surprised. Location was excellent for daily walks which were signposted, fresh walk every day if required.Hotel was clean staff friendly and food good. We had a balcony with our room overlooking the Julian Alps and the views were breathtaking.

We stayed here for a walking holiday and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was excellent , we were not quite sure what it would be like as it was buffet style. It gave us the opportunity to try foods we would not normally have chosen and there was pleanty of choice, it exceeded expectations. The room was clean and comfortable with a great view over the lifts and slope. The staff were both friendly and helpfull catering for all languages. We did use the pool and also found it easy to use the chair lift and hire bicycles.We managed to easily get the local bus to Lake Bled and had a trip through the Julian Alps. There are good cycle paths and walks for all levels of experience. A perfect holiday despite the one or two thunderstorms.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south and west sides have the best views.

We stayed at Kompas during the sky jumps competition on Planica and it was a great place to be. In the center of the village close to everything that you need. Beautiful nature all around, great view from the room window and spacious room and bathroom.
Big variety for breakfast, they even had soy milk, which was great since we are vegetarians. Big indoor pool, lots of things to do and explore.
Would recommend this hotel to everyone!

We stayed at the Hotel Kompas on our holiday through Crystal Holidays. The room was very clean and comfortable and had a balcony with lovely views of the surrounding mountains. Our accommodation was half-board and meals were excellent. The menus, both breakfast and dinner, were varied and well prepared. We enjoyed the buffet-style food as it meant we could really experiment with different foods. Local wines and beers are served, which we found excellent. The staff at the hotel were exremely friendly and helpful and all had a good command of English, which seems to be the second language in Slovenia. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area, walks of varying difficulty from gentle strolls to serious mountain hikes, cycling along the well-made cycle tracks (cycle hire is easily available). There are also chair lifts which take you to further walking opportunites. Coach excursions are many and varied, visiting the Julian Alps, Lakes Bled and Bohinj and other places of interest. Buses will take you to Ljublijana with its charm and bustle. We are considering returning and maybe next time we will hire a car to further explore the region, The Hotel Kompas will definitely be our base when we come back because of its great comfort and service. Thanks to all at the hotel for making it a perfect holiday.

Room Tip: We had a good view from our balcony but it may have been better had we been on the 2nd or even 3rd f...

Just returned from a week's holiday staying at the Hotel Kompas.This hotel has good facilities and is well positioned for the centre of Kranjska Gora with its cafes, restaurants. shops etc. . The rooms were clean and comfortable and the choice of food in the restaurant, although buffet style was enjoyable.We used the indoor swimming pool on several occasions.There are plenty of activities in the area and numerous walking and cycling trails.We visit Lake Bled and also took the local bus to Ljubljana(takes up to 2 hours) well worth a day trip. We had varied weather on our trip but there is enough to do in the area to enjoy Slovenia and its culture.

Myself and my family are just back from Slovina where we stayed in Kranjska Gora at the Compass Hotel. We are a family of four I have two sons aged 4 and the younger one aged 6 months. So traveling with buggies and alot of bags etc. We traveled with Crystal Holidays which we have done on many times before and again it was an excellent choice. When we arrived at HOtel Kompas I was very impressed with the hotel are room was on the second floor in a lovely quite spot ( perfect) Breakfast each morning was from 7.30 till 10.00 and the choice was excellent from cerals to fruit , cheeses , hams hot food, pancakes the list goes on and during the full week I enjoyed the breakfast everyday. As we were halfboard we eat out for lunch in the local town or if we went on trips on the local bus ( very nice coaches) which were very local, the food was excellent and a very good price ( pizza €5-€7) Pasta €9 . We also used the pool everyday not always in our hotel as the sister hotel Larix across the road had also an even bettter pool so we swam there quite a lot ( has a life guard as well) In the evenings we eat again in the hotel dinner from 6.30-8.00 and again excellent selection of food from soup to salads to cheeses and a wide selection of main courses from Pasta to beef , chicken Lamb the list is endless... Deserts were also lovely and a selection of Ice cream which my son really enjoyed. The staff on reception were also very helful and spoke english so we never had any issue with language each day there were a number of activities on like hill walking, aerobics in the pool etc etc we didnt join any of these till the last evening and we went on the evening hike for 1 hour to the local lake by candle light , this was really intresting as the guide gave a great insight in to Kranjska Gora ( maybe should have done it on the first evening) . If your intrested in this hotel and Area you will have a fantastic holiday and stay in a really lovely hotel ...I know we did and we had a great time.
During our stay the World Debate Championships were on and the hotel was very busy which was nice.
