Went there in June 2013, with high expectations. However, I was let down rather soon.
The weather was bad, which contributed heavily to my disappointment. There is very little you can do if the weather is bad - the outside pool was closed (the inside one is small and crowded), the hotel does not have an inside gym, and the sauna gets old fast. You can go hiking, but I can do it at home as well.
The food was absolutely terrible, save for the trout which was decent. The breakfast is of very poor quality (third world bad) and volume (you had to wait for any of the half-good stuff to come in after being snatched by hungry guests. The waiters do give their best and run around, but I guess there are too few to get the job done.
Otherwise, the place is just dreamy. Surrounded by woods in an apartment (which we upgraded two from a really small room) and overlooking the green valley, it is absolutely beautiful. The positioning within Slovenia is great, so other places worth visiting (such as Bled or Bohinj) are an hours' drive away.
I would definitely recommend visiting Big Mountain (Velika Planina) near Kamnik (15 mins by car), with its alpine shepherds' village and crisp air.
Overall, they could use better food quality and additional entertainment. In such case, I would definitely consider visiting again.
