This was our fifth consecutive visit to Meran(o) in the spring. We've stayed three times at the Park Hotel Mignon - the glorious but increasingly expensive five-star sister to the four-star Adria - and once at the much cheaper but very agreeable three-star Salgart. We chose the Adria this year on the Goldilocks principle, and it was indeed just right. The highlight was probably the food - delicious Alpine breakfasts and a superb array of options at dinner, with appetisers and a pasta and risotto buffet complementing the courses served at the table. Almost everything seemed to be locally sourced and of the highest quality. Our waiter, Gunther, was exceptional - charming, amusing, unobtrusive but efficient, always aware of when we were ready for food or wine, and a great source of advice on the latter. The hotel has a terrific wine list, by the way, very reasonably priced (at least it was before the pound tanked!).
We were very happy with our room, the friendliness of the owner (Herr Ellmenreich) and his staff and the wider hotel and its facilities - especially the swimming pool after our days spent in the mountains. Meran(o) is blessed with a huge range of hiking options in the various nearby valleys, and the excellent integrated transport system makes it easy to venture long distances, secure in the knowledge that you will be back in time for dinner. Although the Adria is outside the centre of the town and some way from the station, it is well situated for bus stops.
We booked our June 2017 holiday at the Adria as soon as we returned home.
