Reviewed 15 November 2013

Der Weinmesser is a fantastic small full service hotel. The hotel is way up in the hillside overlooking Scena and the valley. The rooms we had were large with balconies and views over the valley, city and mountains, just wonderful! Ask for a room overlooking the valley and ask to have a look at it.

This part of Italy is bordering Austria and Switzerland and has been fought over many times, sort of like the Alsace wine region in France. Their main language here is German, with Italian second. Most signs are in German. I found that people love to try out their English and are very helpful. I was told that most tourists here are from Austria, Germany and Switzerland so they do not get a chance to speak much English.

The rooms also included breakfast and dinner in the dining room. So much good food. The dinner you have to order at breakfast, you usually have a choice of two main dishes. Their wine selection is fantastic. You will get assigned a table and you will use this for every meal.

The hotel sits on the old family vineyard. The word "Weinmesser" goes back a long time to when the local wines were checked for quality by the Weinmesser. Like quality control.

The hotel has three different types of saunas a pool and you can get a massage if you so care. All is very clean. Great hiking trails through the orchards. The fruit tree blossom is in April.

The staff is super friendly and again, love to speak some English when they can.

The only draw back I can see is that the parking is a bit tight, but that is common in Europe.

Room Tip: Ask to have a look at available rooms. A room with a balcony and view over the valley is awesome.

The staff is very friendly and the bed is comfortable. The view from the room are of the Meran valley and quite beautiful. our room had a sofa ans small knee high table but no chairs for sitting at the small desk. The desk held the TV and a lamp so there was not enough room for our laptop. Also a shortage of easily accessible electrical outlets, the ones at the desk were occupied and one had a choice of either plugging in the lamp, the TV, or ones electronics.

The sauna area is adequate with plenty of room to relax, a couple of showers (nothing special) and a water faucet with glasses. no tea or juices offered. the indoor pool area is beautiful and spacious.

the food was ok, one has to make a dinner selection at breakfast. while that used to be fairly common in many european half board hotels, some of the nicer 4 star hotels we have stayed in will let one select from a menu nowadays. the wine is terribly overpriced, euro 11.50 for a sampling size (100 ml) glass of a 2010 vintage that was available in the local grocery store for under 10 euro per bottle! limited variety for appetizer/antipasto dinner or breakfast meats and jams selections - same thing every day. dinner entrees and deserts tasty.

We - family of 3 with a teenage son - spent a week in August at the Weinmesser in a "Magnum Junior Suite". The hotel is very well maintained, the rooms, restaurant and pool areas clean and in good condition. The meals were excellent, although our son, who is a very picky eater, was not always happy with the selections. Our beds were very comfortable. However, our son's bed in the extra room was a rollaway cot, which was not so good. After 2 nights, we put the mattress on the floor.
The rooms have a wonderful view of the Meran valley and the surrounding mountains. We spent our days hiking - Meran 2000, Hirzer - and came back in the afternoons for a dip in the pool before dinner.
It was very hot during our stay, and there wasn't air conditioning, which means it was important to keep the shades closed during the afternoon.
Most guests here are from Germany - couples and families with small children. We would certainly stay here again, but would get a separate room for our son (or leave him at home!).

Room Tip: Check the room floor plans on the hotel website! The Magnum Junior Suite rooms have an open bathroom...
