I was striking out for hotels in GP. A kind concierge suggested this hotel, and wow what a difference it made. Up on a hill overlooking the valley, beautiful views from the flower filled balcony, it couldn't seem to get better.
Then it did. We went to the pool and spa area and wow, how cool was this gem of a find. Pool and hot tub inside, with beautifully painted walls. Nice. Then to the spa. Now here I must caution that the door says 'textil-frei' or otherwise naked. Oh well, we went in with robes and bathing suits underneath. This place was empty, and fantastic. One scented sauna, another steamroom, another berg sauna (outside across a small opening). And several multiple head showers that were great. Truly this was a special treat!
Outside of that, the service was excellent ( complimentary champagne on arrival) , bar was nice, had the best server and service ever in the restaurant, and we had late check to boot!
Go there, it's what all Europe hotels should be!
