A bit dubious before arriving due to previous reviews, however my partner and I were very happy with Hotel Lek.
Paid for a superior room which basically includes a balcony but after being allocated a room at the back of the hotel we asked reception if there was availabilty at the front with views etc and this was sorted for us in a few minutes by a very helpful man. Rooms were spacious and bathroom decorated to a high spec we felt.
Food was delicious. I am a fussy eater but found plenty to eat at breakfast and dinner. Restaurant staff were very efficiant and friendly, including the manager and we enjoyed all our meals. The salad at dinner was fab, as was the soup and main selection.
Free use of internet wasa bonus and pool and whirlpool were good for those rainy days.
We hired a car for one day so that we could drive across to both Italy and Austria. Our rep quoted us £60 for one day, however we went online at the hotel and found the website Economy Cars' where we purchased car hire for 30 Euro only, including insurance with no access. The car was booked 2 days in advance and was dropped and picked-up from our hotel which was brilliant. It may be worth doing this rather than taking the buses which were quite expensive eg £12 each to Bled and back or £18 each to the capital. Those buses take forever as well!
Scenery was fantastic especially from Hotel Lek. Little town was lovely and the best location we came across in Slovenia. Food was very reasonable. There was a really good pizza restaurant and a nice Slovenian restaurant that we found where we were getting a massive lunch for under 15 Euro inc drinks for the two of us. This compares to a tiny lunch with ine drink between us in Taviso Italy where we were robbed of 16 Euro for the a bit of lettuce, a plate of pasta and a soup. Austria which was much better value.
At night we went to the nearest Casino on the main road and actually left £70 up after a few visits so we cant complain. Soft drinks were also free while you gambled and they do have bingo as well.
We booked with Ingrams and would do again, as our transfers were very organised and the rep was full of knowledge.
For you fisherman out there, be warned that a day permit around the town is 20 Euro with a lack of fish. Lake Bled has plently of fish including carp, however the permit is 50 Euro a day!! They mostly fly fish in the rivers.
Lake Bled by the way, ok but very over priced. Horse & cart rides were advertised as 30 Euro and 12 Euros for the boat trips. We opted for the little train around the lake which was 3 Euros each.
Overall we were glad that we chose Hotel Lek as we believe it is the best hotel there and would definately recommend Kranjska Gora as a lovely and quite get away in September.
