Hotel Plunhof
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Ridnaun
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 August 2013

Truly an amazing experience for me and my family in this hotel in the Ridanna valley of Italy's South Tyrol. I spent one week with a group of 8 eight people and we all had an incredible experience. The hotel is in one of the northernmost valleys of Italy's Alto Adige, just below Austria. It is a solitary location, but the beauty of the valley and the many activities will leave you with very little time.
The rooms are excellent, we noticed that our room was in a newer part of the hotel with some additional amenities such as rolling shutters and a bigger bathroom, but we were able to see 2 other rooms from our group and they were just as excellent.
The hotel provides half board, with an all-encompassing breakfast buffet and amazing gourmet dinners with a selection of main course you will choose in the morning.
The fitness, spa and pool facilities are in great shape and can be used with a very wide program of free activities. Every day hikes are organized by the hotel, they can be pretty difficult, so be ready for good physical exercise.
Do not miss their organized Tuesday's excursion to their mountain refuge, where they will prepare free grilled food after a 2 hour walk in a magnificent environment. We did have a minor problem with this excursion since we lost our way and the guide gave us wrong direction, but we talked to the hotel people and they are going to make maps in the future for slower hikers.
Overall one of the best vacation we have ever had, truly a fantastic family operation in this hotel, where each of the 8 children of the owner Paula helps in creating an unforgettable experience. Would return in a heartbeat!

What to say? It's the perfect place to stay if you need to get relaxed, live your days in a very peaceful and elegant atmosphere, where all staff loves taking care of you from the morning to the evening. Very rich breakfast, tasteful and multi-choice dinner, absolutely clean and big rooms. Only the wellness center (gym included) is too small if you are looking for such a holiday, but everything else is great!

Room Tip: Double-floor Tobias suite is really comfortable and well-furnished.

From the moment we entered this wonderful hotel until our departure day, we felt so welcomed. After the first five minutes, our kids said: "This is the best hotel ever!". From the great breakfast, to the slopes, pool and wellness area, tasty dinner, to the after dinner drink in the cozy bar...simply excellent. The whole experience was really relaxing. We are just so sorry to have to wait a year to come back to this great hotel. Thank you for the überschön time we spent at the Plunhof!

We chose the Plunhof from their website and we were delighted from the moment we were collected from Innsbruck airport. We were probably the only English speaking guests at the hotel but every effort was made by the staff and even some of of the other guests to help and translate the menus and daily activities. We were there for 10 nights and the food was simply excellent every evening. Our room was superbly appointed and kept immaculately clean as you would expect in that part of the world. The staff and the family owners were quite exceptional, the mood in the hotel was so relaxed yet very professional. Don't miss the wine tasting, boxing class, bowling night and guided walks to name but a few....
