Reviewed January 13, 2007

The Oswald is a very historic hotel which has undergone remodelling in most public areas in recent times and is due to undergo a major refurbishment of the bedrooms in 2007 according to plans on display. To enable this it will apparently close its doors between March 07 - August 07 (approx). In the meantime it's still a very nice place.

Our room was on the third floor at the corner of the building and had a spectacular view of the mountains and towards the main street which runs through the village. Although furnishings, etc were dated they were well maintained and the room was spotless & very spacious. Large bathroom had small shower & twin handbasins (but these will be subject to the changes which, from plans on display, appear to include installation of baths).

TV only had CNN & BBC World News and lots of Italian & German channels so it would be wiser to stroll through the village instead to walk off the cuisine.

We found staff to be very helpful and friendly - from reception to restaurant and housemaids. English was spoken by most.

The food was Italian and (as could be expected) of a very high standard. Most nights this consisted of 4 or 5 courses with a varied choice, although appeared limited for vegetarians. We had no trouble finding very nice wines to accompany our food and for those who enjoy a cheese there was an excellent local selection on the Gala dinner evening.

We didn't try the health & fitness centre which appears modern and well frequented by the less inhibited guests (a "natural" approach is compulsory).

Ski lockers and a large drying area are provided in the basement (lift to all floors).

In general Selva is busy for passing trade skiing the Sella Ronda however we found it very quiet in the evenings during our visit. The main street had a few nice shops (e.g. ski wear and wooden carvings which are a speciality of the area), some cafes and bars but it's all low key. It's a place where the visitors are more likely to be Italian, Austrian, German or Russian than British in our experience.

The main lift (Campinoi gondola) is in the main street too but leads apparently to 3 difficult red runs. For leisurely cruising we opted to go from the Dantercepies gondola slightly further away (a free shuttle bus operates from the hotel) or took a taxi to Plan de Gralba (12 Euros) or local "orange" ski bus (5 Euros for unlimited one week pass) to Alpe di Siusi, by Ortisei.

All in all we had a good experience at the hotel and the resort and would recommend both.
