This was our second holiday in Kranjska Gora, last time we stayed at the less impressive Hotel Lek. This year we spent a lovely week at Penzion Lipa for a February ski trip and can highly recommend it. It’s simply a home from home.
Pension Lipa is located in the centre of Kranjska Gora. It is a charming family hotel with 10 rooms, a pizzeria with winter garden and a top a-la-carte restaurant. The owners Nikola and Zorka Perkolic run the hotel with daughters Stella and Katja, and son-in-law Bojan. The family are very friendly and welcoming, going out of their way to ensure that each guest enjoys their stay.
On the map of Kranjska Gora, the Lipa looks a little way’s away from the slopes but we were happy to discover it’s less than 10 minutes walk. Instead of carrying our skis every day, we hired a locker in the basement of the Larix Hotel (at the base of the nursery slope) for only 10 Euros a week - it held the ski equipment for all 3 of us.
Our room at the Lipa was on the first floor and was lovely - nicely decorated and spacious. Good, comfy beds with high quality duvets, the room also had Satellite TV with 40 channels and there is free wireless internet. Plus a great balcony with fabulous views of the Julian Alps (which I imagine would get more use if you came for a walking holiday in the Summer). The room was always very warm whatever the outside temperature and the shower was good, powerful and hot. Perfect after a day of skiing!
Food for hotel guests is served in the very grand basement restaurant which deservedly has the reputation of being the best in the town. For dinner, there’s a choice of 10 starters and 10 main courses every night, with a choice to suit all palates (even difficult teenagers!). Plus there's an extensive pizza menu offering superb freshly-made, charcoal-oven-baked pizzas. The desserts are outstanding including Zorka’s home-made ice cream. For breakfast, there is a cold and hot buffet and is very good.
Having travelled extensively in Europe, I can confidently say that the Lipa is far better than its 4* rating, based upon the quality of the rooms, the first-rate restaurant and the friendliness of the Perkolic family. We were very sad to leave.
