Newest Review: ... selection is limited. The bar in the hotel is cheap with a 500ml beer being 2.50 Lev (£1.20) which is almost a third of the price than it... more

Disadvantages: See text.
We decided to choose Borrovits as our first ski destination, mainly on the travel agents reccomendation. It was a cheep learn to ski week and a big mistake.
We choose the best hotel as it was only slightly dearer than the rest. It had a good night club and grand lobby, plain but adaquette rooms.
Terrible luke warm food.
There wasnt much snow in the village so we used the upper slopes which were accessed after a 2 hour cue for the gondola and then a 30 min trip. Exiting the gondola involved decending thick ice covered steps in ski boots, which caused many tumbles.
Big cues for all lifts at the top.
A charge equivilent to there days wage was levied for the toilet, which was a hole in ground with no paper.
They charged to lean skis outside cafes!, infact they cahrged for anything they could think of.
The town itself was ok with good apres ski. A ski jump show was a highlight.
The locals however tried to rip us off at every oppurtunity. We felt awkard as we knew they were very poor and in consequence we felt very rich, but we didnt want to be the easy victim who was ripped off.
It was the only holiday in which I was glad to be boarding the plane home.
