This was our second visit to lake Bled. I strongly recommend staying in a hotel by the shore of the lake (like Grand Hotel Toplice). Rooms were somewhat dated but in a beautiful historic building. Everything in our room was clean, though floors were a little creaky, which didn't bother us. This hotel had airconditioning which was so very welcome as it was unexpectedly hot at the hight of summer.
In this hotel you also have access to a private swimming area by the lake with sunloungers on a decking and towels available by the shore. A swim in the lake was refreshing on a hot day. (Though, with my Finnish heritage I am sure I would have enjoyed a swim even in a colder season..)
A relaxed walk around the lake is a must (if disabled or with little kids I'd recommend taking the mini train at least some way around). This is a most scenic lake with a fairy tale looking castle on a tiny island in the middle of the lake. We aren't exactly the sporty types so believe me, you can walk around the lake in an hour or two and stop by for refreshments along the way.
Nearby there are also waterfalls and other beautiful natural locations to visit.
