Reviewed 1 October 2010

We actually stayed here during July 2009 for an extended weekend and wanted to give a quick review before it got too late. The pictures from the hotel's web site looked exactly like what we look for in a vacation in South Tirol: Modern architecture, great setting with 'green' for the dog, trekking possibilities nearby, promises of great food and wine etc. But it was not so for us. Although the hotel belongs to the Belvita hotel group and touts 4+ stars, we were not given a room in the new, modern tract due to our companion dog. So strike new bathroom, clean lines and interesting architecture. We had an older room in the not-yet-renovated main house (albeit spacious and with a great view) whose furniture was dog-eared and whose bathroom had seen several decades of travelers. It also had no air conditioning which we desperately needed due to the afternoon Summer sun from the balcony. Although there was enough space for a quick necessity-driven walk for the dog, there were not so many interesting trails directly near to the hotel for our hikes. We, instead, drove to the destinations and sought out suitable trails with the help of the staff. (Plus points here: they were nice and helpful.) And regarding the food: although the set up was what one could expect with half-board for the area, the meals lacked the fine touches to be truly good--although the descriptions always sounded luscious. Plus, the terrace where we often had pre-dinner drinks needed to be refurbished, too. The old (70's early '80's?) main building, terrace and decor of the dining room didn't fit with the modern glass room tract and the avantgarde touches in the hotel reception's lounge area. Probably the renovation couldn't be done all at once due to costs, but we felt the hotel needed a bit more 'pepping up' in general. A new area of South Tirol discovered, but we needn't return here as there are plenty of other options out there. Ones that don't assign the run-down rooms to people with dogs.

Great hotel and great service.
We tried it for just 1 one night and we were so well impressed thet we returned for the week-end 7 days later.
Great wiev from the room in the older building looking at the castle.
Nice view also from the room looking on the wood.
Everything was really clean.
Great high level food (not just tipical local food) 3 times a day
New and well equipped spa
Just 1 negative thing: the old indoor pool and the whirpool; they need a refresh
Absolutely to suggest
