“Little piece of paradise in Merano”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

We have just returned from a fabulous trip to Merano, which was made even better by our stay in the Park Hotel Mignon.
From the moment we arrived after a long transfer from Verona airport (around 2 hours) we were made to feel very welcome and immediately taken to our room by the receptionist. Upon opening the door we found a complementary bottle of wine, fruit and flowers.
The room itself was spacious, comfortable, air-conditioned (which was needed as the temperatures were in the mid 30's!) and had the best bathroom we have ever had (massive shower, separate bath and huge twin-sink).
The hotel grounds and facilities are amazing, a lovely pool area with sunbeds and towels provided, spa and peaceful sitting areas to relax. The hotel is only a short walk from the centre of Merano but felt so peaceful and quiet.
However the highlight of the day was the evening meal, six courses each night (eight for the tyrolean evening!) of quite superb food, beautifully presented and tasted just as good. Some of the best pasta I have ever eaten and I cannot remember not enjoying a single course for the ten nights we had. Breakfast was also excellent, freshly cooked eggs and a huge selection of meats, cheese, pastries etc..
The staff were always friendly and helpful (particularly when working out which buses to catch to do certain walks) and the service was always efficient and done with a smile!
Although Merano is in Italy the language of choice in the town is German, with little English spoken which we had to adjust to. A lot of the menu's when you are out and about are only in Italian and German, and the further into the hills you went most people only spoke German, so make sure you brush-up before you go!
Merano is a beautiful town with pleanty of places to eat, drink and shop (hardly any tacky tourist shops which was nice) and really well geared up for walkers and cyclists. The hotel gave us "Merano Cards", which give you free use of the buses and trains, and some discounts on the cable-cars and museums. We also had fantastic weather, really hot and sunny and only a couple of thunderstorms in the evenings.
This hotel is one of the best we have ever stayed in, and some of the few British guests were repeat visitors, which tells you a lot about how good this place is. Highly recommended by us!

Our stay at the Park Hotel Mignon was nothing short of outstanding. The faciliy and grounds are immaculate, and it is an oasis in the center of Merano. A couple examples of the terrific service -- I needed to rise at 4:30 am for a bicycle event, and they arranged a full breakfast spread and hot coffee for me hours before the breakfast room opened. Also, my wife left a jacket behind in our room, and when we called, they cheerfully sent the jacket to our next destination. Merano is a beautiful spa town, and we would gladly return to this hotel for another stay.

We booked this holiday only 10 days before travelling, so were expecting a fairly standard 'what was left' room. Wrong! The room was very spacious with TWO bathrooms, a shower room, a full bathroom, one at each end of the room. The king sized bed faced the two big patio doors, and the balcony ran the length of the room/bathrooms. Although it overlooked the front of the hotel, and the annex opposite, it also overlooked the roof garden between these properties. Everything had been thought of - a rucksack for our use hung in the wardrobe, 4 towels for use at the the pool were provided each day in a beach bag.
Each evening a newsletter was delivered giving the temperature for the next few days, activities at the spa, and recommending a walk. The hotel ran a free courtesy bus to the start of a different walk each day, providing a map with the route back, cafes, restaurants etc.and the approximate length of the walk.
And then there was the food! The chef apparently is a Global Master Chef, and the food was absolutely superb. I ate things I didn't even know were dishes (crispy deer, lavender seed on the dessert, rocket brulee), each meal was an experience.
The hotel is about a 10 minute stroll from the centre of Merano, there is a bus route a few minutes walk away. Transport in Merano is first class and cheap (buy a travel card from the hotel for 28 eu per week, it covers trains, buses and some cable cars) and will take you everywhere. The hotel reception are brilliant at advising trips, walks and how to get there.
The clientele are about 50-50 British and German, mainly there for the walking.
This is an absolutely first class hotel whose staff really care about your stay. I cannot fault it.

Room Tip: South side rooms overlook the extensive gardens. North side rooms do not have such a good view, but...

We rarely return to the same hotel twice - for 2 weeks, this is a first! But Merano is such a delightful centre and this hotel is an oasis of peace and calm. We enjoyed ir even more this year.
Unlike last year, we booked an ordinary double bedroom rather than a Junior Suite. To our surprise we found our room better than the Suite! Large room, super bathroom with large walk-in shower as well as a fine large bath. Good sized very peaceful verandah with bird-filled trees (being bird watchers that suited us fine).
A typical day for us would be an early breakfast in the garden with the friendly service of the brilliant staff; off with our free-travel Merano Cards (supplied free by the hotel) by bus, train or a combination of both, plus, maybe a chairlift. Walking in the delightful hills of South Tyrol; and return to relax in the garden with a swim and a read, with an excellent dinner to follow.
The hotel has almost everything right. So can I suggest any improvement? Difficult, but just one matter we found puzzling on both trips. They lack a sommelier. Ask any waiter to reccomend a wine and you'll not get much help. (As regards white wine, do try Fratti Lugana; I'm afraid I never found a red that really suited us!)
So, will we return? ........ Probably.

Room Tip: Don't go for a Junior Suite upgrade if you travel with Inghams - save your money for wine etc.

This really is a delightful family run hotel which makes you feel at home from the minute you arrive. A wonderful warm welcome with minimum fuss at check in and quickly up to your room, first impression is that everything seems to be brand new, the bathroom gleams from every angle and the facilities are superb.

I am a difficult person when it comes to beds and pillows but I had absolutely no problem with anything here. The room is large and airy boasting a vey extensive balcony with a view over the attractive gardens, shutters and an awning ensure you are protected from the setting sun and eliminate the need for curtains at the window.

A welcome bottle of the local red wine and some delicious apples adds to the feeling of being at home, the limited viewing options on the TV was a disappointment but the free wi-fi was some compensation.

Spa facilities are extensive and I enjoyed an excellent massage from the resident masseuse who was very competent and like all of the staff very friendly.

I read in an earlier review that this hotel was only for old people, I am 73 so I suppose that includes me, there were however several young families there and it was clear that the staff were making every effort to keep them active and amused. Given the splendid swimming complex with indoor and outdoor pools it was not surprising that a lot of the activities took place there.

We only had breakfast each day in the hotel but it was very very good and catered for just about every taste, the staff were attentive and remembered your needs without prompting. In the evening the bar takes care of any post prandial requirements and drinks can be taken in the very comfortable lounge or on one of the many terraces.

The town of Merano is just a few minutes walk through a charming little park where there is a statue of Sissy, the Empress who gave birth to seventeen children. A stone bridge takes you over the river and into the town proper which is packed with amazing shops, cafes and restaurants, we made our contribution to the local economy my wife assuring me the prices were cheaper than in Hong Kong.

Altogether a lovely experience which we plan to repeat next year, the hotel is perfect for this type of holiday and you can guarantee a warm welcome and a most enjoyable stay. Certainly worth its five star rating.

It's a curious thing that great hotels sometimes don't get reviewed. The reason is simple - the clients who have found Nirvana want to be able to go back there!
This quiet hotel is as near perfection as you can get; they think of everything down to the last detail. Lovely rooms, excellent facilities such as garden, pools [indoor and out; hot-tubs, and spa pools] several different types of amazing saunas and the like with allied rooms to relax to birdsong, exercise etc, etc all part of the free facilities.
The food is outstanding. We breakfasted from an excellent buffet in the garden each morning and dinner is at least six courses - if you can stand it!
What with the most friendly and attentive staff in this family-run hotel, in a town full of interest - especially if you enjoy a bit of strolling or more serious walking.
The hotel give you a Merano Plus card if you stay at least a week - we stayed for two weeks - which allows you to use the brilliant buses, trains, all the museums and many castles and a few cable cars - all free. They also offer you a free car hire for a day - but we were enchanted by the public transport and were happy to forget a car. They also have free use of bikes.
As a result, you can see why most clients return - some very often! This was our first visit - and it won't be our last.

Room Tip: They have outstanding suites - if money isn't too much of an issue

We stayed here for our 5th Wedding Anniversary treat and it didn't disappoint. The service was impeccable and the meals a delight. The staff couldn't be more helpfull and really go out of their way to ensure you enjoy your visit. It has beautiful Gardens and pool and plenty of areas, inside and out, to just relax and luxuriate. If' like us you wanted to do some mountain walking, the bus stop from where you can access various cable car stations is just outside. We're already thinking of a return visit

Room Tip: We had a standard room which we found more than adequate for two of us.
