A very nice place to stay a while.There are for sure in the Merano region hotels with a better view on the Dolomites, the atmosphere, very high service attitude of the staff and especially the wines of the Plantitscher Hof must be unrivalled! Breakfast is a present, every morning again. And during the day you can enjoy swimming (both indoor and outdoor), work (if you like under guidance) in the fitness facility, be present at one of the many events the hotel organises daily (walking trips, visit the impressive wine collection of app. 18.000 bottles in the hotels cellar, etcetera - the range of daily events is very wide that everybody will find something of his/her preference) or visit the charming town of Merano or go to larger Bolzano. And after that, the Big Final waits: dinner in the atmospheric hotel yard with oleanders, cypresses and palm trees. If travelling with young children: you'll have a good sight on playing children, while the dedicated, friendly and professional staff (mild to children!) serves you very tasty dishes and very fine accompanying wines. The level of the service offered is excellent - you can make use of it, but the staff is never 'pushy'. One critical remark: the swimming pools are during some hours closed for children. The Plantitscher Hof deserves this positive recommendation!
