First time at the Granvara and we have just positive things to say.
We were looking for a quiet hotel in the middle of meadows and field, and the Granvara is all that. It is always difficult to choose a hotel as on the web every one is “quiet”. In Selva Gardena Granvara is the only one who is really in the middle of the green. Amazing place, the most quiet in town with a wonderful view to the Sella and Sassolungo (it's just in front of you). Perfect to relax.
We have booked a Classic room which is a normal size. Comming again we would ask for a Junior-Suite or Confort-room (as the view is better and the balcony faces the swimming pool)
The hotel is on our point of view a great hotel which could be compared with 5 star hotels at Lake Garda or Como. All is new and very clean.
What we were looking for was a good SPA which made us completely happy. Large size saunas, a wonderful „whisper lounge“ a great outside pool. All looks definitely very well organized. The treatments are not too expensive and the staff is very well prepared.
Breakfast is nicely done with local dishes, an open kitchen at the buffet preparing my daily „ham and eggs“. Dinner is one of the best we ever had. They advertise it as a Gourmet and I can tell you it is a perfect Gourmet cusine with local dishes too. By far the best menus we ever had on holidays in Italy, Germany and Austria. The chef is local but has international experience, it was very nice to have the chance to talk with him after dinner.
So all in one, a real good experience!
