I can't recommend this place high enough. Everything is done very well and with a passion. The location is great, although it can be challenging to drive up to in the winter. But what really makes it stand out, is that the staff is there to make you enjoy your stay.
This is definitely a first choice for any stay in Spindleruv Mlyn!
The pension, which is more like a hotel without reception area, is located in a small park on the end of the road over the dam and nicely sitting next to a lake. It must be great in the summer, but also in the winter it is a nice and somewhat secluded location. There is ample parking at the end of the single lane road, which in winter can demand for a 4WD or at least snow chains.
The rooms are spacey, as are the bathrooms with shower and there are plenty of beds in some rooms. And it is quiet, very quiet. The walls isolate sound well, although noisy another guests may cause some noise in the central staircase which the doors of the rooms don't shut out. There is a cinema room with a beamer and an abundance of movies (most in Czech or English though, so bring your own), a huge playroom with pool table and a sauna. All free of charge, of course.
Because the town is a few kilometers up the road, the owner prepares a simple dinner each night for a very low price. All meals are good and a very good alternative for traveling to town. Since Spindleruv Mlyn doesn't really have a apres-ski culture, you won't miss out much with Pilsner Urquell from the tab. The bar closes when you do.
The true gem is the staff. Always present, always helpful, always friendly with an eye for your needs. Just ask and they will clean your room, change towels, whatever you may expect of a good stay. They can help you with special deals on ski passes, know where to go and if the weather conditions are good for skiing. And if the car trip to the location is challenging, they drive you up and down. Oh, and of course you can ski to and from the pension directly.
