A beautiful hotel steeped in the Dolomites, with a gorgeous view of the mountains from the outdoor-heated swimming pool and terraces, superb food at the restaurant and an excellent Spa and wellness area with different kinds of sauna and wonderful alpine massages and baths.

Wonderful, wonderful stay!!

OK, one or two minor annoyances, but easily overcome.

Service: friendly, helpful, attentive throughout, and all too happy to meet our special health related requests

Room: Great! Superb view of the mountains over the Nordic skiing centre. Nice balcony, good bathroom although a bath, rather than a shower, would have been even better.

The hotel is very close indeed to a busy road with some heavy lorries - and motorbikes galore. We asked in advance for a rear room, having seen the photos, but you could still hear the traffic, AND were woken several weekday mornings at 6.40am by chainsaws. But hey, we could have gone somewhere else without these problems and had far worse in every other respect, and ear plugs sorted it! We slept very well indeed!

Dinner: very enjoyable. Being on a special deal it was a fixed four course menu. It helps if you like meat! But they were happy to provide a fish alternative, and the first salad course could be a main meal replacement if none of the other dishes suited! And every dish we had was enjoyed.

Drinks were reasonably priced for a hotel of this type in an area like this and there were plenty of sitting areas indoors and out for relaxation with a good ambience.

The Wellness Spa was also good and reasonably priced for the area. Plenty of sunbathing grass and with small indoor and outdoor pools.

The hotel layout is quirky with lots of twists and turns, but accessibility didn't seem to be a problem. Good garage too for parking, although a little pricey.

Breakfast was very good although we never got to the bottom of whether boiled eggs were charged extra or not. We were told they were, 5 Euros an egg, which is ridiculous if true, but then the two we'd had before we learnt that weren't charged for! Good choice of fruit, breads, breakfast meats, salads, jams and drinks, with a waffle station too.

Cleanliness: Perfect.

Location: excellent (unless you don't like the proximity to the road). Absolutely great walk up to and around Dobbiaco Lake. Not too far from the centre of the village either. San Candido and other resorts and Dolomite highlights are all reasonably close by.

All in all, highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask in advance for a room at the back or take ear plugs

the room was really big and beautifully arranged, with a small balcony and view towards the mountains. We ate a wonderful dinner at the restaurant - we recommend the venison! The breakfast was extraordinary - a lot of very nice fruit, special cheeses, etc. Everything inside is in a traditional style - it really makes you feel at home (in a really luxurious way). Everyone was nice and helpful. We were especially impressed with the waiters.

We were looking for a hotel with easy access to the Dolomiti and thanks to other reviews we selected the Santer Hotel. We were very happy with the Hotel from the moment we arrived. It is traditional in style - lots of wood and traditional in service. Really felt like a family business. As it was low season (may) and unseasonably cold, it wasn't very busy and we were given an upgraded suite. The room was large, the bed comfy and a nice size balconly overlooked the Dolomiti and the outdoor heated spa pool. In addition to a full set of bath towels, our spa needs were also looked after - including a separate towel for the spa, a bathrobe and slippers - to get all this down to the spa area, 2 large tote bags were also in the room. I did want to take one back with me but chickened out in the end.

We weren't sure of our plans so we didn't book the full board option but were told at reception that we were welcome to eat in the ala carte restaurant which had late opening times. Due to a change in plans, we were back earlier than expected so we did eat in the restaurant and it was one of the BEST meals we have ever eaten!! The produce was local, fresh and beautifully cooked and presented. So good that we had to go back the next night as well! We had deer, lamb, chicken, veal, pork, tagliatelle, ravioli, wild mushrooms, chicory, forest berries and would have more if we weren't so stuffed!! The service was friendly and even though I tried to use Italian - they were very happy to translate and even tell us the history of the dishes we selected - including some local ways of serving.

Another added bonus was the wellness area. The outdoor pool turned out to be a pool sized hot tub. It was a treat to be able to lounge about in hot bubbly water while looking out over snow covered mountains. Within the 'chalet style' relaxation area were a little sauna (more in the 'nude' zone but we didn't venture there) and 'hay' bed, a salt inhalation room, a juice bar and lots of beds and loungers. There were 2 different fire places but none were in use in May - it must be a spectacular place to chill out in winter.

We will make every effort to come back to the Hotel Santer - for the sevice, the comfy rooms, the wellness area and most definitely THE FOOD!!

The hotel is a bit dissapointing and not really worth the 4 stars because of a combination of things.... It is on a very bussy road with traffic night and day. Backside is quiet et with a splendid view. The whole hotel is full of little stairs and differences in level, quite a challenge, specially as it is too dark everywhere... in the restaurant, in the hall, in the rooms, in the wellness...
The rooms are dark but extremely clean. Beds are very good but hardly 30 cm high.
Welness is large and well equiped but only opens at 4pm even on rainy days. You get one single towel that can be changed by room-service the next morning, you'd better not get too wett...
Food at dinner is excellent and presented in a nice way. Service in the restaurant however is below the level of a 4-star house. Things are forgotten or orders messed up. The two gentlemen in the restaurant pay most attention to the Italian public (specially when in skirts...) The (temp) girls in the bar and restaurant (Kathrin and Daniella) did a great job and were very kind.
Over all... not what we expected from this hotel.

Room Tip: stay away from the front side of the hotel

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night 30th May. We stayed in the "Saskia" suite which is a beautiful suite, with separate living area, walkin wardrope and wonderful bathroom facilities including bath and separate shower. The room is tastfully decorated with well made furniture.

We had a wonderful view of the Dolomites from the huge balcony. The spa area very big and comfortable. Our daughter also loved the two different swimming pools.

The hotel is situated in a great positon for people who like quite, walks, cycling and cross country skiing in the winter.

Breakfast was varied with local fresh produce, juices, cereals, meats etc.

A great stay and I would definitely recommend it.
