“Another great stay”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

Our second trip to Pri Lenart and hopefully there will be a third next year. Despite somewhat iffy weather the walking was still brilliant and we enjoyed all five walks. Sarah and Keith could not have been more helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The food as always was superb and we thought it was even better than last year.

Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple

This review isn't just about how stunningly beautiful the hotel was or how amazing the walks were. What really stood out the most for me was the hospitality. Never before have I stayed in a place where you are looked after not because you are paying for a service, but because they genuinely care that you have the best holiday. From always offering more refreshments, to preparing the jacuzzi, to having lunch packed and waiting by the door. Sarah and Keith pay attention to every detail and they leave nothing out. They tirelessly and selflessly ensure you are enjoying your time there and it gives them great pleasure to do so. You are treated as a friend or family member visiting and are welcomed warmly in to their home.

The hotel is a beautifully restored Slovenian monument whilst taking great care to maintain it's character. The rooms are gorgeous, beds were comfortable and the bathrooms are very modern. There is a cleaner who comes in every day to clean the bathroom and tidy the room and makes the bed so perfectly you suspect she irons the linen.

The food is incredible. Keith and Sarah spend all day preparing exceptional, restaurant quality food. All the food is fresh and sourced locally from neighbouring farms and markets. They make their own spreads, ice cream, sauces, and prepare what they can from scratch. And don't get me started on the homemade schnaps...

The guide is lovely and all the walks are tailored to the groups abilities. She is very knowedgable about the area and will happily answer questions about the local history.

The scenery is extremely beautiful. This holiday is the perfect city escape. The walks can be challenging at times but worth every minute for the stunning views. Once you get to the top of a mountain, you get to sit up there and have lunch whilst enjoying the view. If you are in to landscape photography - bring your camera! I was able to take some stunning photos which I hope to get printed. The gorge walks, the lakes, and waterfalls on the Bohinj/Bled walk were absolutely stunning.

I can't rate this holiday highly enough and I cannot find the words to accurately describe just how amazing Keith and Sarah are. Thank you both so so much for such a wonderful holiday. I enjoyed the walks but I also found the week very relaxing and peaceful. It was exactly what I needed. I hope you both know how much all your efforts in to making this the perfect holiday are appreciated.

This experience (it isn't just 'a hotel') fully deserves all these outstanding reviews.

Pri Lenart is such a find. Sarah and Keith have done a fantastic job of renovating this historic property, taking care of every last detail. It was a real privilege to stay in their home. I ate and drank magnificently well, laughed a lot, slept soundly every night, and enjoyed the walks every day. In short, I was completely spoilt.

First and foremost this is a walking holiday, and some of the walking is very hard work! But your reward is some absolutely spectacular scenery (and tea and cake waiting when you get back to Pri Lenart). Neza is a great guide and took us to places you just couldn’t find on your own. Meeting local people and learning more about the Slovenian way of life was priceless.

Thank you to Sarah, Keith and Neza, and also to the really wonderful group of guests I had the pleasure of sharing the week with. An excellent holiday, just what I needed!

I could have not asked for anything more, it was simply a perfect week for my wife and I to spend our wedding anniversary. Sarah & Keith have worked tirelessly turning the Pri Lenart Hotel into the perfect walking holiday experience. We were instantly both relaxed, and remained so throughout the week. The walks are fantastically well judged to suit everyone in the group, and if you are left wanting more exercise then just ask :-)

Guys don't change a thing, you've got it so right.

P.S. Give fluffy a hug from us!

My husband and I love travelling - and experiencing new types of holidays and cultures. This was the first Walking Holiday we have been on. If you enjoy socialising and being amongst nature - this is the holiday for you. I was extremely impressed that the walks we did each day were revised and monitored to suit weather conditions. If Sarah & Keith felt that the higher walks with spectacular views were to be obscured with clouds then we did a lower walk and if they felt it would be too hot, we did a walk which was sheltered by trees. Our guide Neza spoke excellent English and was very aware of everyone in the group. We have left Slovenia with very fond memories...

We cannot praise Sarah and Keith enough for the great time we had. The walks were guided by Neja who was very patient even when I was a bit slow getting up the mountains. I was glad I made it to see the beautiful views from the tops and for the sense of satisfaction at the end of the day. Keith had done a great job restoring the hotel and I can only rave about his cooking. On the return each day Sarah was waiting with a pot of tea and a freshly baked cake. Despite working all day they still had time after dinner to socialize with the guests. We have never stayed at a place where the owners go out of their way to make sure sure we have a good time.

We have not done a group walking holiday before but I can't imagine a better experience than this one. Sarah and Keith thought of everything and produced stunning food, wine and entertainment. Slovenia is an amazing country, perfect for walking and our guide Neza was excellent. Our group was fun and a constant source of good laughs and entertainment as well as patience when needed on the tough hills (do turn up with some walking experience and fitness, reaching the peaks are so worth it!). Perfect holiday.
