Breathtaking alternative to staying in Bled
Posted Jul 27, 2012
We stayed at Spik for a romantic getaway after a great deal came up for one of their double rooms.
We arrived early and they cleaned the room quickly so we could check in sooner, and this was indicative of the staff's service throughout the stay- they were patient and helpful whenever we had a request.
The room was well equipped with a breathtaking view, the restaurant served an incredible range of food at competitive prices (we ate in every evening despite there being other options nearby in the village because we enjoyed it so much).
The swimming pool(s) are more suited to families, but they are open late, especially on Fridays, so if you want to swim lengths you will be able to (the whirlpool is highly recommended).
Free wifi is available in the reception in other hotspots in the hotel such as near the lifts on every floor. This is useful to briefly check the weather or your emails, but ensures that your romantic getaway doesn't become a business trip, as you can't access it from the rooms.
If, like us, you're travelling in the summer, the half-hour drive to Bled is easy and well signposted- we were there during Bled festival and got some great food there during the day. Swimming in the lake is fun, but we would also recommend exploring the area around the hotel, as there are some nice walks along the river and through the countryside surrounding.
Staying in this hotel is a great, quieter, more luxurious, but reasonably priced alternative to staying in Bled.
