Good breakfast with a choice of hot or cold buffet. Good car park off the road. Local dinner menus with free wine.
We were on a skiing holiday. The gondola ski system was about 10/15 minutes walk, slightly uphill, and the centre of Bansko was closer, over a footbridge.

The hotel is amazing, staff are great, but would be unfair to say that they are only in the hotel; bulgarians are happy, cheerfull and helpfull people in general.
Spa is fantastic and free for guests...
Internet works at full strengh anywhere in the hotel...
Transfer from Sofia is available and Shuttle to the ski station works very well
The only minor down side is the location which despite of been in a great area, in winter can be a little problem because Borovets village ends up not been a walking distance destination for a dinner out...
We were two couples so sharing 10levas (£5) each way was never a problem...
But still if you have a full board deal or feel like, the hotel's restaurant definitely deserves a thumbs up!!!!

A lovely hotel with a peaceful atmosphere and right in the centre of the town.But not noisy as not on a main road so little traffic. Traditional style of decor with a lot of wood carvings and wood furniture in rooms. The staff are very friendly and helpful and many speak English. The room was very spacious and airy with good hot shower and cleaned every day. Good selection of food on the menu and you could also choose from the tavern menu and get a 10% discount. Very good portions and all prepared fresh for you when you ordered. Traditional Bulgarian food as well as European and catered for lacto-vegetarians. Wine and beer local and very good. Suitable for couples and families. No lift all stairs though. Sauna and massage available on request, pay extra. We would stay there again and recommend it to others

Had a great week in Bansko. The room was amazing and bigger than most new build flats. Satellite TV. A kitchenette and seperate bedroom. The food in the restaurant was simple and well prepared, and the staff were very helpful. The resort has a very pretty old town where beer was about 60 pence for half a litre. There were queues for the lift in the morning but getting there at 8am meant you had 2 hours on the slopes by yourself, where the snow was excellent. This was half term week, so their busiest of the year.
The evenings were soooooooooooo much better than France, food is much better and a quarter the price. Some places seem to have caught on though and the more expensive restaurants aren't necesarily the best. Particularly Pomodorro Roso where the service was lousy and food very average(most expensive meal of the week and worst. Try the Barbecue haidujk sword if you like (lots of) meat. There's a great place down on the left as you go to the old town. I still have a 20% off voucher after eating the "sword" A guy in sun glasses will ask if you want to see the menu.
