AN EAGLE'S NEST FOR INCENTIVES
Hotel Golte is located right next to the upper station of the cable car to Golte. Within eight minutes the cable car will take you straight to the hotel reception at 1,430 meters above sea level. The hotel and a comprehensive incentive offer right in the heart of the Savinja Alps Regional Park are still an undiscovered pearl of Slovenia. In addition to the winter season, at for many one of the most beautiful ski resorts with guaranteed snow, the summer season is also incredible. The diverse terrain offers 12 kilometres of ski trails. The rich variety of Golte rounds off the excellent incentive opportunities in the Savinja Valley. The culinary tradition is outstanding, one further reason to make it the perfect base for incentive programmes.
From the hotel to Ljubljana Airport it is about 80km and should you decide to drive to Golte by the highway A1 (Ljubljana – Maribor), use the Šentrupert exit in the direction of Mozirje, from which it is just 16km to the lower station of the cable car. The bottom station of the cable car is located 4km from Mozirje in the village of Žekovec. The car park there is huge, offering 500 parking spaces. It’s important to know that during the winter season the cable car operates every hour, but in the case of an event, the frequency can be increased. One can also drive directly to the hotel located next to the upper station of the cable car, 16km from Mozirje.
COLD APPETIZER - Architecture and Aesthetics
The integrated design of the hotel revolves around the cable car, which leads guests directly to the reception. The modernistic exterior pretty much diminishes the bright interiors with their dominant wood and warm colors. The architectural vision of the hotel caters to active holidays and everything that satisfies guests who are on such a stay. It seems that the architects wanted to create a world that is in contact with the surrounding nature; every room has a view of the forest. Functionally the hotel is well designed, albeit that one must only get used to the different layout of the floors.
WARM APPETIZER - Staff and catering
You feel like you are staying in a typical Alpine hotel that provides privacy and genuine direct contact with nature. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, although it seems that additional help would be needed in peak season. The breakfast is sufficiently varied and satisfactory, with congress cuisine a solid classic, having an emphasis on good taste. What stands out is their apple strudel, which is really excellent. We would love to see a more extensive wine list though.
MAIN DISH - Conference hotel service
The spacious rooms are equipped with modern furniture and furnishings in pleasant pastel shades and are decorated with black and white photos of the mountains. The hotel offers everything you’d expect from a four-star hotel, but the more demanding guests will miss some of the more luxurious toiletries and maybe some additional gadgets. The congress hall is modern, well equipped and can accommodate about 100 people. It can be used for banquets, set up in theatre style or U-shape, and can easily be divided into two smaller units.
DESSERT – The extras
The legendary Mozirska cottage invites guests to relax and socialise while enjoying a traditional Slovenian alpine experience. Playing mountain billiards is on offer, or even learning how to bake homemade bread.
FLOP – NEGATIVE SURPRISES
Slow internet and bad mobile phone signal (which can nowadays also be an advantage).
TOP – POSITIVE SURPRISES
The wealth of cultural and natural heritage around; the Alpine garden, Mozirje Grove, Snow Cave, Logar Valley, Rinka Waterfall, Robanov Kot and Potočka Zijalka cave.
OVERALL IMPRESSION AND CREDIBILITY
The hotel is perfect for an active congress experience. It is modern yet homely, but its character leaves no doubt that it is best suited to active participants or those who wish to withdraw from civilization for a while.
