“nice hotel”
Reviewed 29 May 2009

I went here for a business meeting, so I didn't ski. I liked the food, buffet breakfast and dinner. The room was cosy and clean. I liked the slippers and the bathrobe, which I could wear when I went for a swim in the indoor pool, which is maybe 7-10 x 5 m and warm (cca. 27C).

A group of 6 of us all stayed in the hotel together and it was brilliant. Fantastic position for the slopes and shops, friendly staff who helped with our language skills and a yummy breakfast buffet every morning that kept us going until dinner time.

The night club was pretty dead, but a lack of audience always improves my dancing (as does alcohol) and the swimming and sauna facilities were a good extra.

We stayed in this hotel for a week in January with 3 children aged 2,9 & 12. Our room was plenty big enough with loads of storage for all the essential ski kit and baby gear. Also had locked ski lockers down stairs. This is a fantastic hotel in the heart of the village. The only problem was the snobbery in the restaurant which wasn't really meant for a 2 year just learning to feed himself!! Also we were surprsied to find although there were dressing gowns, slippers, hairdryers etc in the rooms there was no kettle - which was a bit of a pain, especially as we drink gallons of tea!

The ski facilities are excellent and cater for everyone, lots of easy learner slopes and a few more difficult blacks (note the reds are marked up as reds but in France these would actually be blacks and the some of the blues are really reds. There are no greens - if you know what I mean).

The swimming pools was lovely and you can use the other pools at the other hotels for free. There is also a playroom for under 5's which isn't brilliant but its somewhere to burn off a bit of energy.

The food was lovely (buffet style) with plenty of choice for all and amazing puddings!!

Just been skiing at Kranjska Gora 7-14 Mar 09, stayed at Kompas. Booked THE cheapest ski hol on-line I could find and this place was it, so was apprehensive about accommodation and resort as a whole, however there was no need whatsoever. Have paid twice as much to ski in France, etc with accommodation only half as good. Kompas was clean, rooms very large & well furnished/presented, double bed extremely comfortable, (altho for some reason we had 2 single duvets all week rather than one double??!) Only poor comment is our room smelt of cigarattes (not entirely hotel's fault) and of 'drains' the whole stay! But apart from that it was superb - fantastic view onto mountains, staff great and food amazing - as much as you want to eat buffet style and we did not have a bad breakfast or eve meal in all 7 days. Prices not bad either for drinks. Would def recommend hotel to anyone, families, singles or couples. Lots of children there but did not matter. Whole resort totally perfect for beginners and 2nd/3rd time ski but not so good for advanced ski as limited runs. Pretty village. Can recom the waffles in the village, small cafe opposite supermarket!

i have just returned from the hotel kompas (7th -14th march 09) on my first skiing holiday! even know after 3days of ski lessons i decided skiing wasnt for me it did not change my refletion of hotel kompas or the resort of kranjska gora. the food is great esp evening meals! the only negative i would say is there is not much for english people at breakfast unless ur european and like olives cheese etc (not for me at 7am !!) .the rooms are very nice and clean and chambermaids r lovely! kompas has a good swimming pool and steam rooms etc but be aware unlike in england steam rooms etc (apart from pool) are naked only so not for the shy!! but nobody bats an eyelid.

We stayed in Hotel Kompas from 17-24th January 2009. We are a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 children and we had never skied before. We we pleasently surprised when we arrived at the hotel at 8.30pm as there were people sitting around in the comfy sofas and some were dancing to music. We were given our keys and headed to our room. The room was very clean and spacious for a family of 4, though we found our bed to be very hard. We had just missed dinner so the hotel laid on a cold dinner straight away.

The food in the resturant was very good and we found that we were going up for seconds, they did have some food for the children.

The only fault that we would have is that some of the women waiters in the resturant and bar were very ignorant and that did make me think that surely they should treat tourists with respect as afterall we are bringing money into their economy.

We found the hotel to be very close to the slopes, and the town was very quaint and homely. This is a very cheap holiday as their prices in the bar were very reasonable as a glass of red wine was 1.20 euros and a large beer was 2 euros. The supermarket down the street was cheep as well as we bought water for 14 cents and coke etc for 77 cents, cigarettes 2 euros.

Our Ski Instructor Emir was very good and made this experience the best. We would come back to this hotel in a heartbeat as it is good value and close to everything. The resort has limited shops and bars but we found that there was enough for us.

We met some wonderful people in our ski group and we have stayed intouch. When Our coach came to pick us up there were tears in our eyes as we had enjoyed it so much. My kids our talking about next year even before we had left the resort. We do hope to met up with the new friends next year at the same place.

Have been a yearly visitor to Kranj for the past 5/6yrs and have always stayed at the Larix. Last year was my first year bringing non skier wife and 2 kids (6yrs and 9mth old!) and booked the Kompas Hotel. I cannot be complimentary enough about our experience. Our arrival was late (2am), yet the night staff had a cold supper ready for us (all we wanted was bed!). Room was perfect (large double, a single, huge cot for baby and loads of space). Noticed a rather unpleasant odour (drain smell) in bathroom but fell into bed. Next morning smell still there, went to reception and within 20mins had been moved next door no fuss!
Half board and food was superb (much better than Larix where could be a bit hit/miss). Very fussy eater son ate better than at home. Staff very friendly and kept playing with the baby. Great Location, nice pool (smaller than Larix but less crowded so more pleasant). very positive experience and highly recommend this hotel. Unfortunately this year could not get the Kompas (mid-term) so will be in Alpina. Although it appears fine will be hard pushed imho to match last years experience at Kompas. BTW Kranj fantastic for families with young kids, also beginners. Not alot of variety for advanced (me a bit bored with skiing options but going for kids benefit) just beware it is a low resort and snow reliability can be iffy!
