“Great Location, great service, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2011

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.

Lovely view of the mountains from our room. We stayed a week and enjoyed some great walking either directly from the hotel or by using the local buses. Good variety of food at both the breakfast and evening buffet. Our room wasn't huge but it was adequate. We enjoyed using the balcony although it didn't get direct sun. Would love to return to Kranjska Gora and the Kompas.

The rooms were simple and comfortable. The hotel was conveniently situated within the resort. The restaurant and lounge area were frequently crowded, so we tended to go elsewhere to hang out.

Very pleased with this hotel
The food was excellent and the difficult part was choosing what to have, as there was so many choices on offer all done buffet style. We arrived back late from Venice one night and having given them notice of this a ‘salad’ was to be kept for us, this salad was way beyond our expectations. On our going home early departure a cold breakfast (packed lunch) was supplied and again it proved impressive.
Great view from our room/balcony in such a peaceful location yet only a few minutes walk to the shops, cafes and supermarket. For what it’s worth the police station is just across the road although it doesn’t look like one.
The indoor swimming pool is around one metre deep with lots of space to relax and there is a small kids pool.
All hotel staff encountered was friendly and all in all it was a very relaxing place.

We stayed on the kompas saver rate which included lift pass and ski/boot hire. It was very good value. The hotel itself was good, we had a slight problem when we arrived at 1.30pm to find our room was not made up.
Once made up our room was very nice, comfy twin beds and a good size with a nice balcony for chilling our drinks. It was very warm at all times in the hotel kompas, a little over warm at times.
The buffetts for breakfast and dinner had plenty of variety and although we are both vegetarian we never stuggled to find enough to eat.
The kompas pool is a bit dull but you can use the Larix pool complex over the road for free and this one is much better.

I cannot describe how pleased we were with the hotel. We travel the world and in our opinion, the Kompas is at the top of our list.

Stayed in the Kompas for a week’s skiing from 28th Feb 09. The hotel was spot-on. Rooms were clean, roomy and comfortable. The food was very good indeed. I’m vegetarian and usually had a choice to tempt me on top of a good selection of salad. Breakfast was a varied buffet with the more traditional breakfast choices as well as a great array of continental goodies (my preference - being a bit of a non-typical Brit in this respect!). The bar area was pleasant enough with free WiFi but not exactly buzzing while we were there. Didn’t venture downstairs to the nightclub though…

The hotel was located an easy stroll from the slopes and had secure ski lockers big enough for board and skis for two (as we ended up doing a bit of both but more on that later). The hotel had a small pool and Jacuzzi which you can use for free, but the one time we tried to use it a large family was monopolising the Jacuzzi (so we didn’t get a look in) and the pool was really too small to actually swim in unless empty (which probably only happens during the day when most people want to be on the slopes). Gave it up as a bad job after about 20 minutes before I was tempted to drown the vile children throwing themselves at me. (Disclaimer: I consider all children to be vile, almost without exception ;-)).

Unfortunately we were rather unlucky with the weather. We had several days’ rain which turned the slopes to mush. Some lessons continued but conditions for skiing were pretty lousy. My instructor did his best mixing lessons with theory but my husband’s instructor (a more advanced class) called off her class for one day as she said it was too dangerous and they could easily damage their knees. We had wanted to do some boarding as we’d had an introductory class before leaving and given the conditions, this was probably just as well as the slush made for quite good beginner conditions! We booked a two hour private lesson which was just enough to get us using the lifts. Got a really good deal (two for one I think) on hiring boards (as well as the skis) for three days so spent the afternoons practicing our boarding skills (when we could face the rain). Towards the end of the week, the rain turned to snow and the temperature dropped. Conditions improved and we even got some night boarding in which was fun. Although the weather meant we didn’t get as much skiing in as I would have liked, my impression was the number of runs was quite limited. I suspect given perfect conditions, even as a low-ish intermediate skier (year three), I would have been getting bored by the end of the week. The slopes are a series of mostly quite low runs spread out side by side with some longer ones as you moved to the right (facing the slopes). Beginner and second year skiing would probably be fine with plenty of opportunity to build skills.

Our last half day turned glorious. Wall-to-wall blue skies, cold with a fresh sprinkling of snow. The slopes had a whole different feel; it was Saturday so local people were out, the bars and restaurants at the bottom of the slopes had decks and terraces full of people relaxing in deck chairs in the sun and had we had a week like this I’m sure I would have come away feeling this was a perfectly nice resort – certainly for beginners. Just be aware that either end of the season can be a bit risky.

One other word of warning (or recommendation, depending on your perspective!). The resort seems to be very child-friendly if the child-soup you are forced to wade through in every bar, restaurant and hotel is anything to go by. It drove me a bit mad (being a kiddie-phobe). If you are looking for a peaceful, grown-up atmosphere, this maybe isn’t the resort for you.
