We stayed at the Kompas over the Christmas period travelling with Inghams and were really pleased with the whole experience. The Hotel was very clean and well kept, our room for 2 adults and 1 16 year old sharing, which we thought could pose problems was no problem at all, the room was much larger than we expected with very comfortable large beds (no sofa bed or equivalent !), there was plenty of storage and hanging space for all our needs. The room also has table and chairs, mini bar and flat screen TV with over 30 channels, a mix of Slovenian, Italian, German and English language. The bathroom was not over spacious but had a good sized shower and a very large heated towel rail, which turned out to be very handy as we had a couple of damp days. All of the staff in the reception, restaurant and bar were very helpful and willing and spoke good English amongst other languages. There is free Wi Fi available in reception and in all the rooms which worked very well.
We couldn’t fault the food, the breakfast buffet was plentiful and varied and the evening meal provided a good choice to suit all the mix of nationalities staying there. Our only negative comment is that there were no“free” non alcoholic drinks provided for the evening meal. The normal, tea, coffee, chocolate, water, milk, fruit juices etc were available at breakfast but for the evening meal there was no water, or coffee available, we expected to pay for wine, beer etc but might have expected to be able to get water or coffee included as part of the meal. On Christmas eve there was a gala dinner for which some complementary drinks were provided and there was an excellent octet of local singers who provided some festive entertainment and also returned the next evening to give a free concert which was wonderful. We used the pool and spa facilities and liked the big fluffy dressing gowns and slippers they provided, although not overly large it really depended on what time you went to the pool area as to how busy it was, go at the end of a days skiing when the slopes shut and you must expect it to be busy. The ski lockers were allocated on a 1 per room basis, we would have struggled to get 3 sets of ski’s and boots etc in 1 locker and reception was kind enough to provide another locker for us.
The hotel is literally 200m from the ski hire shop and the bottom of the slopes. For us the skiing was varied enough, with enough runs to keep us entertained for the week, the slopes are open 9 – 4 and there is night skiing 7-10 for 6 nights a week. There are a number of eateries and snack bars at the bottom of the slopes selling drinks and snacks, it seemed a bit hit and miss what was available depending on what time you went in though. Kranjska Gora is a lovely village and we really enjoyed the traditional, relaxed and non commercial approach to Christmas they have, it was great to get away from all the hype! There are a good number of bars and restaurants in the village to try, the bars we found especially cheap, there are also quite a few shops to wander round, market stalls and 2 well stocked supermarkets. We really enjoyed our stay at the Kompas and Kranjska Gora, we would love to go back and explore the Kranjska Gora area, the walking looks great, and the rest of Slovenia and would not hesitate to stay at the Kompas again.
