We've just returned from a second winter week at this lovely little family run hotel that we discovered entirely by chance. Set in a pretty Italian ski / mountain resort in the Trentino area, it provides wonderful relaxed service, a gorgeous spa area with indoor/outdoor pool, sauna, steam room and massage etc. We were the only non Italian family there each time and barely saw any non Italians on the slopes either. Great system for ski - you can hire equipment at the foot of the mountain and store it there at the end of the day. This is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel. There is then a cable car which takes you up to a decent selection of pretty pistes, fairly easy skiing - probably not for the advanced skier but perfect for families or up to intermediate. There are plenty of ski schools and English is spoken. The hotel itself is undergoing an upgrade so the rooms we were allocated were pretty basic - but a comfortable bed and great shower. This will probably change during 2014. To be honest it didn't matter at all as we were almost never in the rooms and the reception and spa areas of the hotel are lovely. The restaurant is attractive with a great vegetable / salad buffet most nights and a good choice of locally inspired food. Usually a pasta course, a meat course and a desert. The only criticism we had was that the risotto was so al dente that we just couldn't eat it - but this may be a cultural thing - and that sometimes the young chef tried too hard to be innovative and the results were not great. When he stuck to simple, tasty local food the results were excellent. All the staff are absolutely wonderful. Kind, helpful and organised.
There is a kids club for younger children and again English is spoken. There is also a children's menu. If they could add a wood burning stove in the main sitting room / bar and a few hooks on the bedroom doors for hanging salopettes it would be more than perfect and I would have given 5 stars. We will definitely be returning next year.
