— How would you describe Ottmanngut in a few words?
— Suite unter den Linden
— Please tell us a bit about the hotel and its history.
Then in the middle of the 18th century, my great grandfather bought it, and at the end of that century it became a small hotel. In 1973, my grandparents took over, and in 2010, we renovated it completely.”
— Ottmanngut veranda
— Where did you get the inspiration from to renovate the hotel?
— Did you retain a lot of original features in the hotel restoration?
We have retained many original features in the house, but didn’t want the style to get too dark and heavy. The light is very important to us. And from what our holiday guests have said, I think we have succeeded.”

— Please tell us a bit about the rooms and the garden at the hotel.
We didn’t change much in the old hotel garden. It’s very Mediterranean, with ponds and cypresses and lemon trees. In fact, my great grandfather bought the place because of the gardens. He was very passionate about the Mediterranean atmosphere.
We have some old fruit trees and try to grow as many things as we can. Our breakfast is a small buffet with local products. If our guests wish, they may also have small bites like a plate of cold cuts for lunch or dinner. In the afternoon we offer cakes and we sometimes do a dinner barbecue in summer or roast chestnuts in autumn.
Otherwise, we have a couple of excellent partner restaurants that we can warmly recommend where our guests may eat at a special rate.”
— To you personally, what makes this boutique hotel so special?
The combination of the house and the garden is very special too. It even won a price. A former officer of the authority for the protection of monuments of South Tyrol once described it as ‘a ballroom’. The garden is what truly completes the house and makes it a unit. That is something guests can truly experience during their holidays.”
