Everything about our stay (three couples) at Fragsburg was exceptionally good. The views are spectacular. The service we received from every employee was perfect and most gracious. The food was absolutely 5-star (go for the 5 or 6 course tasting menu, or just ask to be surprised). We had the full tasting menu both nights and were surprised and delighted... More

We went to Castel Fragsburg for our one week honeymoon. It was a gorgeous week. The settling is unique, the service is fantastic and there are numerous little touches that make everything seem very special. It's certainly the most expensive hotel I've ever been too, but that is no criticism - you probably know the price already if you're reading... More

Visited with very high hopes as this was to be the high point of a cycling / sightseeing trip across the Swiss / Italian Alps. Arrived in lovely weather somewhat weary from just having cycled up the incredible Passo de Stelvio. Reception was excellent and organised and set the standard. Room with a view (as an understatement) finest Hotel room... More

I had high hopes for this hotel before I went there. Now I have mixed feelings about the place. The hotel is in one of the most beautiful locations in Italy. The view and the hotel grounds will not disappoint you. You get a welcome drink and snack, which was a lovely touch. Now the uncomfortable bits - the room... More

Can anything go wrong booking this hotel, considering all the most positive comments and the Relais&Chateaux membership? No! Stayed one week in a fully refurbished suite w patio. You get informal but attentive service, excellent kitchen including a breakfast hardly to find elswhere, stunning views from restaurant, extensive local wine & spirit list, well maintained public spaces, some rooms perfectly...

When we first came to Fragsburg it was a cosy family run hotel with a good restaurant ...now many years and many visits later it is still that but much better (including getting a michelin star). Whenever we get the chance we go to Fragsburg and having spent 2 weeks touring italy we again diverted to here. Again no disappointment.... More

What a location above merano. What a friendly and welcoming staff. The dinner we had was exeptional in quality, we had not expected this michelin star quality ( at least two in our opinion) when we booked. The room was superb, great view, excellent beds. The poolvery very nice romantic atmosphere and a great garden to enjoy. Breakfast and service... More

Up the long and windy road, hairpin bends, the passing of trucks and hanging on, anticipation building, when there it was, resplendent in the early afternoon haze. Just as one would imagine a fairy castle appearing this is what Castel Fragsburg looked like at first glance.beautiful and what views there are from all aspects of the building and the grounds....

This is one of our most favourite hotels. It is way up the mountain from Meran, a good 10min drive on a narrow road, so not the most convenient place, but for this you get a fantastic view, outstanding food and very nice rooms. This year we arrived just after they re-opened after the long winter-break and both the hotel... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
High above the valley of Merano – nestling against the sundrenched southern slopes of the mighty Dolomites and commanding spectacular sweeping views over one of Europe’s most enchanting landscapes: this is Castel Fragsburg, a fine 17th century Retreat of noble origins, now the smallest luxury hotel in the region. Castel Fragsburg is privately owned since 1955 by the Ortner family, who continue to give the hotel remarkable character reflecting the unspoilt, vast landscape of the Dolomites and the vineyards and orchards of South Tyrol. As a member of Relais & Châteaux the Castle Fragsburg follows the philosophy ‘a unique home for a unique stay’ and is part of their ‘collection of the world’s finest restaurants and hotels’. ... more   less
