“Great location and lovely views good value hotel.”
Reviewed 3 March 2013 via mobile

stayed 1 week feb 2013 with my husband. We re in our late 20s and it was our first snowy holiday. We flew into salzburg so had a 3hr transfer which was a pain but the scenery is amazing on route. Hotel is clean and has everything you need. The location is good for slopes and village really easy access to everything. We didnt prebook anything as we wanted to wait and see what we fancied doing day by day. We hired skis and snowboards from intersport at the bottom of the slope you get discount if youre staying at the kompas prices around 15 half day 28 full day skis or snowboard both with boots and can return til 10pm. Lift passes available at the slopes at 30 full day. The hotel is very warm so take some cool clothing for when you are in the room or at dinner. We had our big window open whenever possible. Food at hotel was better than expected we were half board and had dinner at the hotel every night there was always something good. Only small issue was the lack of manners from hotel staff. Not a big deal just noticable. Our room had a stunning view of the mountains and the village is beautiful. We did two afternoon trips to the capital City and Lake Bled. Dont miss Bled it's not too far and really Lovely to See. was busy due to it being half term Locally. Lovely place and good value hotel.

Stayed in Hotel Kompas for Feb half term, it was our first family ski holiday and was a great choice.

The hotel is in a great location for both ski-ing (just over the road) and the village. Had a family room which was basic but large and comfy with a very good shower. Would recommend taking a kettle & tea bags as we would have appreciated a hot drink in the room whilst relaxing after ski-ing. There's a mini bar in the room which we used to store drinks bought at the local supermarket (where prices are very reasonable 1euro for a bottle of beer).

Used the leisure facilities to relax, pool was perfect temperature for a swim and was never busy.

The only disappointment was the food, breakfast was the usual buffet and adequate. The evening meals were again buffet style, we are not a fussy family but found the food rather bland and unimaginative.

Drinks in the hotel are more than in the local bars but are still reasonable (comparble with uk prices).

We all used Inter Sport for ski lessons (see seperate review). The area is perfect for family ski-ing, beginners and intermediates. To say it was half term it was not busy with only on occassion having to queue a few mins for a lift. Night ski-ing is available on a couple of slopes every night except mon which we thoroughly enjoyed. There is an ice rink adjacent to the hotel which is reasonably priced (3euros adult, 2euros child). The area is catering for family holiday's so there is little nightlife, just what we wanted after a day's ski-ing.

Eating out is cheap with portion sizing being large, you must try the Slovenia pizza's.

We were travelling with Crystal and thought the kids (8 & 6) would enjoy the dog sledging, however although it was enjoyable it lasted no more than 10mins, as it cost 130euros we were left feeling ripped off.

We all enjoyed Kransjka Gora and it's ski-ing environment being quiet in comparison to the more popular ski resorts that we intend to return here next year.

Room Tip: Bring a kettle.

Stayed here as a party of 6, 2 of us having booked separatly however we still managed to be sat together during all meals which was good.

Hotel generally was very good, not even a minute walk from the first slopes, swimming pool, great views.

We booked 2 days later than the others we travelled with and had to pay a little more as the holiday price increased. We were on the second floor and the others on the first and the room we stayed in was slightly bigger with a balcony and a larger bed, also a bath. There was a mini bar in the room however quite expensive so we did not use - also the fridge was not cold. The rooms were very clean and cleaners friendly, very powerful shower but quite tempromental when it came to switching from warm to boiling hot to freezing.

Food was good, I am quite a fussy eater. Generally a different pasta and soup every night with a large range of meats and cheeses. Lots of typical 'all inclusive' desserts and fresh fruit. Although we were half board, we did think we could at least get a glass of water with our meal but this was not allowed and drinks were very expensive in the hotel. A 500ml bottle of water as 2euro 20 when the same brand of water was 50 cent in the supermarket for a 1.5 litre! We had to then pay for bottled tap water each night otherwise we would have gone thirsty.

The hotel in itself was good, the only gripe we had was the heat. Everywhere was just too hot within the hotel, we slept with the door to our balcony open every night and it was -15 outside.
I would definitly stay here again, and would also reccommend the hotel.

Just to add, the reception is not very ambient to drink in, try Vopa bar. Also if you're stuck for lunch the pizza place 'bor' is very good. 5 euro for a large pizza which is cheaper than the burgers etc on the slopes.

We had 3 nights at this hotel during October half-term. On first arrival we thought we may be the only people at the hotel; we only saw other guests at breakfast! It was a quiet and relaxing stay with beautiful views of the mountains.
There was a mix up of rooms when we arrived, which I think was down to the booking agent, but it was quickly and efficiently sorted.
The Spa was small, but clean and relaxing. Although we were a little shocked to find there were no towels available - a trip back to our room to collect towels and robes was a little annoying (especially after having a massage).
Breakfast was basic, although it did improve on the last day when there were more guests staying in the hotel.
The bar was a bit hit or miss. Some drinks unavialble and the same cocktail was served veyr differently on separate days!?!?
This was a great location for exploring this region! Would definitely consider returning to do some more walking - minus the unexpected snow in October!

Room Tip: All rooms seemed to face the mountains but do request a room with a good view just in case!

We stayed in Hotel Kompas in September it was quite a nice hotel,we think it has a great location in the small town.Our room had a super view of the fantasic mountains(what a way to start the day)it was basic but very clean and comfy and had a very nice shower.The breakfast was buffet style which was good enough for us,and for tea all you can eat buffet with a good selection of fine food on every night(the food was good not great,we were happy with it).On our last night we went to a pizza palace at the bottom end of the village and it has to be maybe the best we have ever had(don't miss out)The Kompas also had a pool/jac for relaxation after our mountain walks it was also ok.We had never been to Slovenia before this holiday we must say we loved every second of our stay it was STUNNING.We walked,hired bikes,went on trains and took in some lovely sites(and the sun stayed out).we hope to go back soon.On our visit we also had a great laugh with other guests from the uk which made our stay so much fun.(and we like FUN) give it a go!!

Kransjka Gora is a wonderful place to visit if you are there for the walking.
Very pleasant hotel, lovely and clean.
The food was varied and good quality with self serve buffet at breakfast and dinner.
Food was really nice with an excellent choice, breakfast there was every thing you could want, cereal, fruit, yoghurt, toast, ciossants, rolls, pancakes, cheese, ham and hot food sausages and selection of eggs etc, selection of juices and teas and coffee. Dinner was good with a changing buffet every night something .
Resort very picturesque. The Pool was small.

Room Tip: Higher floors have great view Check the close supermarket for excellent candies in very fair prices...

My wife and I have just returned from a week at the Kompas Hotel and I say from the outset that the hotel was very good but could do with a couple of improvements.

From the out outset we found the staff to be faultless. They were friendly, obliging and cheerful. As far we were concerned they couldn’t be better.

Public rooms were good if a little hot – but it was August. Carpets on the stairs were a little worn but OK. Our bedroom was large and very clean. Towels were changed every day. The hotel did lose a point as there was no air-conditioning and at night it was difficult to sleep because of the heat.

My wife said the swimming pool was very good and again the staff there were very helpful.

Food, well! Breakfast very good, a decent selection of cheese, ham, breads, fruit juice, yoghourt, fruit. For those who like egg (I don’t), there was a great variety. However the bacon was fatty and cheep and seemed to be cooked in lumps. But on the whole breakfast was fine and enjoyable.

Dinner included a choice of two soups, and an excellent salad bar. The hot plate always had pasta but some of the meats were again very fatty and certainly not to my taste. Fruit was always available and ice cream was on most evenings and a selection of cakes was always available. There was a decent selection of wines although I thought them a bit pricey. Beer was €3.00 for a small bottle, local restaurants only charged €2.00 for a half litre! And if you wanted water, they would only sell bottled and not let you have tap water. (Tap water by-the-way was very safe to drink and had no aftertaste).

On our last night they had what they called a ‘picnic’ but it was in fact a barbecue. The noise generated by the band was simply horrendous, boom, boom, boom until 1.00am. It wasn’t even music. I telephoned to complain and they said they could do nothing about it and remarked that I was the third to complain. I think they could have done something as the event was on their property and they even sold tickets.

Despite these drawbacks, don’t be put off. The Kompas is a good hotel. It is a great location in a wonderful village. There is just room for improvement.
