All in all a very enjoyable place to stay. The rooms are spotless, we were given an (unsought) upgrade from standard to superior without any extra charge, the staff are very professional (if a little on the chilly side, but then this is more Austria than Italy!), the swimming pool and sauna are superb, the masseuse is highly skilled, and the scenery and setting of unparalleled beauty. The only reason I'm not giving it five stars is the food. You have to take half-board and the dinner, while posing as haute cuisine, isn't bad so much as boring. They tell you in the brochure that you can ask for a vegetarian or even "ethical" meal, but we certainly weren't ever asked our opinion... Still, all in all I can thoroughly recommend this place for a truly restful couple of days "far from the madding crowd" (especially after the daytrippers have all caught the last bus home). A couple of tips: Do try the barman's special bubbly and elderflower cocktail. And remember to print your confirmation e-mail and take it with you because the whole natural parl area is closed to normal traffic and you have to show your reservation at the bottom of the mountain. Otherwise they make you walk the SIX uphill kilometres to the hotel !!!
