This hotel has been in the same family for more than 500 years, but the Staudachers keep it up-to-date. When Peter Staudacher and his wife took over the family business, they expanded the spa to include a whirlpool, swimming pools and five saunas (including one in the garden with panoramic mountain views). Not yet content, the Staudachers also bought a 350-year old farmhouse next to the hotel, which was refurbished and opened in 2015, accommodating several extra bedrooms. They describe their hotel as ‘true Staudacher style, from wellness and romance to natural cuisine.’
     Public rooms are decorated with natural stone and woods; bedrooms have red carpets, wooden floors and plain walls. In the restaurant, chef Anette Mues satisfies all tastes and there are vegetarian and low fat healthy-eating menus. There’s plenty to do outside; mountain exercise programs; golf courses; cycling and hiking in summer; skiing (both piste and cross-country) and snowboarding in winter.
