Upon arrival we knew our choice had been a good one. Check in was extreme friendly and swift. Our many bags and cases were taken from the car to our suite deluxe while we enjoyed a gourmet lunch on the terrace deck overlooking a spectacular mountain- and valley scenery.
Our suite was quaint and comfortable with two small balconys with views to one side of the valley and mountains, on the other side to the apple-orchards and pool. We loved the rooms for their luxurious, rustic feeling and fine colourscheme.
Service was outstanding in every possible situation. The whole has such a relaxed, luxurious somewhat rustic feel that you will feel right at home.
The restaurant is a 1 star Michelin and one choses between the half board dinner option on one side of the restaurant, or the a la card part of the restaurant. Both very well on all evenings. The food outstanding, using local products and finding the right balance between modern and traditional cooking; northern italian alps meeting the french kitchen. Breakfast is a 10+ with some dishes on the menu i have never seen before on a breakfast menu; some very unusual and when ordered they were outstanding.
It is a 10 minute drive down the winding road to the small city of Meran where there is much to see and wonderful shopping to do. If Empress Sissi loved it here, you will too.
We were sad to leave after 4 days and will return without hesitation.
