We have just returned from our ninth visit to Meran and our fourth to this glorious luxury hotel (previous visits in 2012 to 2014). This was a late booking, for 16 nights, following the Covid-related cancellations of all our previous attempts to reach the Alps this year, including our planned holiday in June at the beautiful Hotel Adria, sister to the Park Mignon. On arrival at the Park Mignon we were greeted with great warmth by the family owners and the many staff members whom we recognised from either the Mignon or the Adria. It turned out that we were the hotel’s first English guests this year, and indeed the first Inghams guests to visit any hotel in Meran. This we found bizarre, because the Meran area was relatively unscathed during Northern Italy’s spring Covid crisis, and it has clearly taken huge precautions - in the hotels, on public transport, in shops - to protect its citizens and visitors. Compliance with local instructions on wearing masks, sanitising hands and maintaining social distancing seemed to us exemplary, and we quickly felt relaxed and safe, inside the hotel and out. Everything about the Park Mignon hotel is first class. Because we spent most of our days hiking in the mountains, we did not visit the extensive spa, but the indoor/outdoor pool was lovely at the end of the day. The food is sensational, with choice at every stage of the six-course dinners, plus additional amuse-bouches from the chef at the gala dinners on Sundays. On our first Thursday we enjoyed a traditional Tyrolean evening, with Heinz Gamper on the zither accompanying a terrific, albeit filling, dinner. On the second Thursday the star turn was the patisserie chef - we were served a stunning range of (mostly chocolate) desserts. The wine list is also excellent, with many high-end local wines to choose from, as well as international options. The prices of the wine are very fair, with affordable as well as eye-wateringly expensive bottles available. At the start of the day, the (masked-up, socially distanced) breakfast buffet also set us up beautifully for our hiking. Our room was smart and the twin beds very comfortable. The weather in Meran was not as hot as we had expected in August, certainly not too hot for hiking, and we experienced a couple of days of rain with dramatic evening thunderstorms. But given the right hiking gear, this didn’t matter at all; indeed the contrasts were refreshing. We have our tenth holiday to Meran booked for next June. We will be staying at the lovely Adria again (which I have reviewed in previous years); for us as a retired couple, it is a more affordable long-term option. But for 2020 the luxury of the Park Mignon has been a welcome restorative after the bleakness of lockdown in the UK, and we are most grateful to the hotel family and staff for treating us so well.…
Nice wellness and spa hotel in nothern Italy, Every room has a balcony. The rooms are clean. Quality and quantity of food at the breakfast is great. Very nice and kind staff. Also there is a garage in the hotel!
We enljoyed the kind service and the pleasant environment very much. We spent time in the nice pool and enjoyed the good food. Everything was to our enjoyment. We can recommend a stay to anyone who is looking for peaceful time.
Hidden down a private and leafy lane, the Park Hotel Mignon is a quiet little piece of Eden belying its convenient walking location to Merano centro. On arrival, which was very cordial, we were welcomed with a glass of wine overlooking the park-like garden. Our room appeared to have been recently refreshed in the current style and was very comfortable and quiet. Dinner was well presented. The wine list was impressive for its selection. Our stay was very short, so no opportunity to take advantage of the spa or the pool, but we hope for another opportunity to do so.
A most enjoyable week in hotel mignon. The staff is smiling and helpful. The spa very very good indeed, especially ms Lena Lena. Dinner always interesting and top class , and the vital menu with half of the calories not bad at all. You can see that the details in this hotel are top priority of the female owners,who are always present. And apart from that it is 10 minutes away from the famous shopping street Laubengasse. We can recommend this hotel.
