The estate

A country house in the Meranese style, preserved, maintained and revitalised

The Ottmanngut is a Suite & Breakfast, classically Meranese in character, an establishment with an individual tone, a home from home.

It is not a hotel in the classical sense. This country house, designed with aesthetic sensibility, is located near the town centre of Meran. All is furnished and arranged in genuine Meranese style, with hosts who care for their guests individually. Enjoying a quiet location on the city’s Via Verdi with its fine lime trees, this traditional guesthouse offers peace, relaxation and comfort. Yet, whether you are in one of the 11 rooms with their exquisite antique family furniture, in the light & airy breakfast room, in the historic orangery or the large Mediterranean garden, you never really have the feeling of being in a hotel, but rather in a family home, one that was revitalised after a two-year renovation, determined by the family themselves. The Ottmanngut is thus a place where the old and the grand encounters the unconventional and the new. We look forward to seeing you!
