This was the second time we stayed at the Fernblick Ferienhotel and - I didn't think it would be possible - our experience was even better than the first time around (2 years ago).
Swimming in a 27 - 28 degrees Celsius (80 Fahrenheit) infinity pool looking at the mountains on the other side of the valley is simply breathtaking.
Of course it takes more than a" sky pool" to make your stay unique.
The first thing you see when you wake up in the morning is not the TV staring you in the face as it is so often the case in a hotel room but the mountains! (at least in the room we stayed in (#210)). They have different types of rooms facing different directions so I can't say anything about the layout of their other rooms. Rooms are spacious and clean
Breakfast buffet is a smorgasbord of healthy and mouth watering foods (it is a wellness hotel after all!).
The lunch buffet is more modest but let's face it: even after walking for 6 hours a day we weren't that hungry when we got back to the hotel at 16:00. This being said there is always a soup, a hot dish a variety of salads and a nice selection of desserts. Really nothing to complain about! Keep in mind that it's advertised as 3/4 pension (and not full pension).
Supper is a 5 - 6 course gastronomic adventure of gourmet food prepared with - mostly - local products. Wines might be a bit overpriced (where aren't they?) but the selection is very decent.
Very friendly, forthcoming and helpful. Most of them speak at least 3 languages.
Our main waiter, Stefan, was discreet, efficient and extremely well mannered.
There are 3 different saunas in a very nice and relaxing sauna area. It is a nude and mixed sauna so some people might not be comfortable with it.
You can rent mountain bikes or Nordic walking poles for free!
I could go on and on but basically value for money is great (particularly if you take advantage of their "3 nights + 1 free night" package) and we are definitely planning to stay at the Fernblick Ferienhotel again next year!
