Hotel Berghofer
Reviewed September 16, 2013

After my first day here I realised I had discovered the real meaning of luxury. I have stayed in much fancier hotels but Hotel Berghofer is something really special. The staff make you feel as though they genuinely like you and care for you and enjoy welcoming you to their special place. All the staff are like this from the owners to the cleaners and the whole atmosphere is one of happy efficiency. The food was extremely good for vegetarians and the chef made a real effort to provide us with variety during our stay. The view from our gorgeous suite was stunning and I never grew used to it as the changing light on the mountains was a constant display of wonder. The hotel is quirky and full of charm and character. I echo the point made earlier about staying away if you have noisy children. The only thing that marred the perfect tranquillity of our stay was a couple of noisy children who were far more of a nuisance than the various dogs that several guests had brought with them.

We had driven from San Cassiano having just stayed in a wonderful hotel and thought this second hotel couldn't possibly match it. We were so wrong. This little family owned and run hotel of 14 rooms is the most delightful place we have ever stayed and it grows on you day by day until you just don't want to leave and when you have it makes you want to go back as soon as possible. It is in a little village with two churches and I don't even think there's a shop. The walking is varied and beautiful but if walking isn't your thing the area abounds with interesting things to do and Anna and her team are constantly on hand to advise you. The views from every angle are so lovely whether you be in your room, at the wonderful swimming pool or from the terrace. We would never tire of sitting on the terrace in the evening for dinner watching the sun sink behind the mountains. The food is very much a part of your stay and includes a 5 course meal in the evening. They will bring you the proposed menu for your approval and after that just sit back and enjoy. This is a very tranquil place so if you have noisy children you may not feel this is the most comfortable place for you - leave them at home and go yourselves!

Room Tip: All the rooms are called suites but go for a master suite if you can.

This hotel is a great choice if you love nature and food and also want relaxation. We stayed for a week and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful with day trips and hikes. Staff speaks German, Italian and English plus other languages. Many hikes start at the hotel, for some you have to drive first for 15 minutes. We only did the 'easy' hikes which are quite demanding if you are city dweller. The views from the hotel are spectacular. We had the 'Schwarzhorn' suite which is the largest one. It was very roomy and nicely furnished. Beds were very comfortable. Dinners are 5-course and usually take about 2 hours. The nice thing is that you can freely pick where you want to sit - including the outdoor terrace (it will get a little chilly as the night progresses). Food was excellent - cooks were Italians but the cuisine was also Austrian-influenced and all the meats and fish were locally sourced. Courses range from local staples (Risotto) to original (e.g. Zucchini flowers filled with goat cheese). They also have a very nice breakfast buffet and liberal breakfast times (7:30 to 11 if I remember correctly). We also tried the in-house spa and had a good massage. Outdoor swimming pool is fabulous with many lounge chairs but it might get a little chilly on some days.
Outside of hiking we can recommend day trips to Merano and Bolzano - beautiful cities that are less than 60 minutes (Bolzano) or 90 minutes (Merano) away.

This is a very special place. We love it. Hidden 1500 metres up above Trento and Bolzano with breathtaking views of the alps, the Berghofer is one of the most charming hotels in which we have ever stayed. Renate and her hand picked young team provide fantastically efficient and professional service while treating you with real care and attention. It's not fair to pick one of the team out as they are all great, but Markus the sommelier is knowledgable and enthusiastic about his wonderfully chosen wines. We went with his daily choices and suggestions for white, red and desert wines. We drank a dozen different wines over the four nights of our two stays and there was not a single bad note amongst them. Oh yes, I forgot to mention that we stayed here twice at the beginning and end of a two week holiday - we could not wait to return. We ate 20 courses of the 5 course dinner menu across four nights and could find fault with none - most were stunning. Our rooms (actually suites) were spacious and airy with 2 bathrooms, balconies, comfortable beds and really good feather pillows. The views of the mountains after which all the rooms are named is breathtaking. On arrival at the start of our first visit we were actually in the clouds and visibility was no more than 50 meters then as if by magic the clouds dissolved and we were treated to the view of the valley over 1000 meters below us - a real wow moment.
The crazy "hay sauna" and massage was very relaxing and the locally produced toiletries smell of the forests (in a good way).
On balance we consider the Berghofer to be amongst the top two or three hotels experienced in our 30 years of travelling together. We will be back - again!

Room Tip: Get a facing the mountains (south facing) for stunning views and sunsets.

I hesitate to write this review because I think the staff are doing their best to ensure an enjoyable stay for all their guests. But I was somewhat disappointed after reading the glowing recommendation in Travel & Leisure magazine for this off-the-beaten path property. The setting, to be sure, is spectacular, but my accommodations left something to be desired. I arrived for a three night stay in June, and and was assigned the last suite available. The first thing I noticed was that there was no safe or telephone, which one would normally expect in a four star hotel. I called downstaris to reception on my cell phone, and a phone was brought up to my room, although no safe. So I deposited my passport in the hotel safe, no big deal. Later that evening I decided to watch the evening news before dinner, since I like to keep up my Itaian language skills. The TV did not work. Another call to reception, after which time I discovered that there were no batteries in the remote. Strange, had they ever rented out this suite before? It did face the parking lot in the back, but there were still some majestic snow-capped peaks to be seen from the windows.

The half-pension option was reasonably priced, the restaurant lovely, David the maitre'd most accommodating, but given the miscues I don't think I would stay at Hotel Berghofer again.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a suite on the front side of the hotel. You won't regret it.

We are from the San Francisco Bay Area. The Hotel Berghofer is an ideal spot from which to experience both the Alto Adige and Dolomites - Italy with a Tyrolean twist. It is located at the very end of the road with panoramic views from the rooms, expansive deck, pool and dining areas. A short and peaceful walk from Bletterbach Canyon, you pass goats with bells on their necks and have the trail to yourself. No detail has been overlooked. The property is meticulously maintained and pride of ownership shines. Privately owned and managed, the staff is gracious and personal and aim to please. We enjoyed a local Pinot Nero at dinner and they thoughtfully arranged a winery visit for the next day. The food was fantastic. Our charming room was complete with tiny songbirds. Every detail is perfection. We were positively charmed by this hotel.

We stayed in this hotel --which actually consists of 14 suites- in early July 2010.
The drive up the mountain roads seems quite long and we did occasionally wonder,as we passed village after village , and numerous isolated farmhouses ,whether we were on the right road, and whether the destination would be worth the trip.
All our doubts melted away as we drove through the gates of this wonderful hotel.
The exterior has the appearance of a fairly average mountain chalet , but the interior has been renovated with an exquisite understated elegance, that is rare to find.
The location is unsurpassed, with panoramic views over the distant mountain ranges,with stunning sunsets , etc. from a spacious terrace,used for breakfast and lunch .
The food, being breakfast, lunch and dinner, was, without exception ,excellent , so there was no need to find any other dining options in the region.
The rooms are actually small suites, consisting of an entry hall leading to a lounge room containing a corner for a small fridge and sink, but no cooking facilities. This then led to an enclosed small sunroom, and an open balcony. The comfortable bedroom also opened out to this balcony. The bathroom was spacious and attractive,and an added bonus was the quality of the accompanying toiletries, being from a local manufacturer, containing a very pleasant smelling pine oil .
There is in addition also a very pleasant spa area, and an outdoor pool area, and perfect little separate sunbathing shelters , scattered throughout the surrounding gently sloping gardens. Perfect for reading or quiet contemplation.
Overall the attention to detail in the design and general ambience is exemplary.
The staff were very helpful and charming ,in 3 languages ...!
An evening spent in front of the large open fireplace, sipping local wine, and chatting to the architect involved in the renovation [ also a part owner ?] ,was another highlight to our visit.
