We've just spent 4 days in th "Sonne" in Mellau, located in the beautiful Bregenzer Wald. From the first moment until our departure, we felt completely at ease and welcome, like visiting good friends.
All of the staff, including the owner Klaus and his charming wife Beate, were always willing to go the extra mile just to make you feel at ease and to cater for your wishes. A role model for so many hotels we stayed in...
Staying in a Penthouse suite, which was spacious and very well furnished, we enjoyed a sunny balcony with great views on the mountains and the benefits of the penthouse lounge, a help- yourself bar on third floor, open all day (and night!) and the "Wälder Stube" as a separate dining area for the great dinners provided by 3 young, ambitious and very talented chefs, who manage to create a 5 course dinner every evening with various options to choose from. Klaus, the owner, not only fixes a great Cosmopolitan, named "Klausmopolitan", but takes care of the cellar as well and offers an interesting selection of Austrian and Italian wines (amongst others) that will surprise you, last not least by the fantastic price/quality ratio. Listen to his suggestions, you will not rue it.
The Spa is very modern, functional and has something to offer for everyone, be it low temperature steam baths or high temp saunas, whirlpools, swimming pools etc. etc. and it's spotlessly clean, like the rest of the hotel as well.
The one and only drawback is the limited availability of treatments in the Spa, because they are so well performed and priced that they are sold out 3 weeks in advance, so make sure that you book and reserve them as early as possible.
We enjoyed our stay and will gladly come back soon!
