Hotel Lek Reviews
Kranska Gora. We booked through Iglu / Crystal which were both very helpful. We found the trip to Slovenia to be much better value than neighbouring Italian and Austrian resorts, the resort is just 7km from the Austrian border. The hotel was great for the price. We stayed half board, the food was relatively good and there was lots of variety - bring your own tea bags if you're a tea addict like me, Slovenian tea was a little odd! The room was great - spacious and spotless. We paid a little extra when booking for a large twin. There was free WiFi in the lobby and the swimming pool / hot tub was spotlessly clean and free to use. The location of the hotel was a short 5 - 10 min. walk to the chair lifts. We rented a locker at the Eurosport Rental place right beside the lifts which was great, no trapsing about in ski boots or carrying equipment. The hotel bar was expensive but I suppose they always are. There are always drinks offers at dinner if you stay half board and the local lager 'Union' is 80c from the local supermarket (5 mins away)! Staff were very friendly. We had no problems at the accomodation at all, would highly reccommend. The other crystal hotel 'Hotel Larix' also looked fantastic and was right next to the slopes. The resort of Kranska Gora itself was also a pleasant suprise. We didnt travel with children but we did notice that the Slovenians seemed very geared towards little ones, and made a big fuss over them at the hotel, in the resort and on the slopes which was lovely. It hadn't snowed for a couple of weeks when we were there but the maintainence of the slopes was good and conditions more than adequate, there were snow cannons everywhere. The resort had about 3 chair lifts, 8 button lifts and was linked to the smaller resort of Podkoren by another chair lift. Our only complaint of the resort was that the runs were a little limited and although there were 2 good blue runs at the bottom of the resort most of the other runs were red / black - not so great if you're less experienced! The resort was fairly quiet at night but there was a bar called Vopa that has a nightclub downstairs which seemed popular and busy everynight with sport, quizzes, live bands etc. Overall, I'd reccommend this hotel and resort. I dont think we will return as the resort just isnt big enough for us, other than this we had a great time and found it to be good value for money.
