Overall

Our lads holiday, including 5 lads and one girl to the lion hotel in Bansko was a great one. Igluski were by far the cheapest ski booking agent that we found when we were looking online. The flight with Thomas cook was unfortunately very poor with cramped leg space and very rude staff but the nielson rep was great. Everyone spoke English very well indeed. The transfer was ok, but they did stop for half an hour at a tourist trap which we all felt was a waste of time and unneeded. The hotel was the lion Bansko which we would all highly recommend. The swimming pool was great. The food was ok but the food out of the hotel was so cheap you had plenty of options. Sadly we didnt get much snow but there was plenty of ski slopes to cater. Overall 8/10

Apres Ski: 5/5

Overall

Despite reading very mixed reviews, we were seduced by the cost. The hotel and ski experience surpassed my (modest) expectations. Ski runs wide and well kept. Enough runs to keep me happy for a week. Good ski lifts (but be at gondola first thing in the morning!) Enjoyed ski school (included in the price). Good cafes on slopes. Hotel warm and welcoming. Wide range of food, although food could have been a little warmer. Swimming pool on cool side but ideal for some reasonable lengths, as many hotel pools are kept too warm. Excellent sauna and steam rooms. Staff are helpful and friendly; just treat them nicely and smile! The town itself is ugly; quaint or Austria it isn't, but functional. There was no snow in the town itself, but met it shortly after getting on gondola. There would be little to do for the non-skier. Overall, great value for money

Apres Ski: 4/5
