Hôtel du Bollenberg has been lovingly run by the Holtzheyer family for more than 40 years. “Our guests are made to feel completely at home, but with all the added benefits of superb hotel service,” begins Ophélie Holtzheyer, daughter of Véro-nique and Laurent Holtzheyer.
All of the hotel’s 50 rooms have been conceived for the utmost comfort, and offer stunning views over either the countryside, the mountains or the vineyards.
Being surrounded by the beautiful Natura 2000 protected area makes Hôtel du Bollenberg the perfect spot for reconnecting with nature. Meanwhile, oenophiles will not want to miss the opportunity to visit the nearby wineries for a tasting.
Keen to explore more of Alsace? Stunning villages such as Eguisheim and Kay-sersberg are also only a short drive away, as is the vibrant city of Colmar. “We’ll be able to make the perfect day-trip recommendations depending on your personal taste,” smiles Ophélie.
Back at the hotel, guests can enjoy a meal at restaurant Côté Plaine, which is set to launch a delicious new menu as of 1 September. A strong emphasis has been placed on local market produce, ensuring all ingredients are fresh and in season.
A true moment of wellbeing
Guests over the age of 16 can unwind in the magnificent Spa de la Colline, which includes a swimming pool with massage jets and underwater music, sauna, steam room and salt cave with heated water beds. The Spa is limited to a maximum of 15 guests at a time, meaning it always feels very private. “We want our guests to enjoy a true moment of wellbeing.”
The relaxation continues with the hotel’s weekly yoga sessions, which have been running for a few months now. “The view during the class is truly exceptional. It’s certainly a revitalising experience,” enthuses Ophélie.
Hôtel du Bollenberg also boasts four seminar rooms, making it the ideal spot for business trips.
