If you visit the South Tyrol you will want to go to Meran and you will find it hard to improve on this hotel as a place to stay. It is in a quiet garden quarter and a pleasant 10 minute walk from the town centre. I can't think why anyone would want to stay there unless they wanted to go to the thermal baths every day.
It is regrettable that there are so few reviews in English, but if you read German or Italian you will see, time and again, comments -all true- about the superb service and friendly welcome of the staff. The rooms are comfortable with balconies, views over the mountains and proper bathrooms, not merely a shower.
They also say, correctly,that the food is truly excellent, usually 5 courses for dinner. You make your choice at breakfast from a selection of mainly Tyrolean dishes, with some Italian extras. You would not wish to go into town, when food so good is served on the delightful garden terrace. The wine list is excellent and reasonably priced
Most of the clients (as everywhere is South Tyrol) are German speakers and, in May, not young. This has the advantage that they know how to behave correctly and you will not be disturbed by the boorish or noisy behaviour one has to expect in London these days.
There are both indoor and outdoor pools. We used only the latter, which was at a perfectly comfortable temperature in late May and big enough not to feel crowded
As for value? We paid 110 euros per person for half pension. To be sure, it's always subjective, but I think that this represents excellent value for such a combination of comfort, service and gourmet dining
