    Situated 90 minutes by train from the South of Munich in the town of Garmish, the hotel is surrounded by Bavarian Alps on three sides. The hotel is actually located in the hills of Garmisch, right next to the Riessersee lake, and has splendid views of Garmisch and Partenkirchen. It takes about 25-30 minutes to walk to the town center. The guests can visit Linderhof and Neuschwanstein castles, which are also nearby.

      Great location not in the center of town , but w excellent walk (25 min ) to the center of Garmische. Close to both ski areas but you need a car. Great italian bartender. Beautiful hiking trails seconds from the hotel.

      Small rooms for longer stays. We upgraded to a suite. Room cleaning below average. Terrible internet service.

    • Older travelers

      The location and the wellness area were just superb! Also when I asked to upgrade to a suite it was no problem at all.

      The first night we had to wait an hour after we ordered in the hotel restaurant Alte Bob before we received our meal. The restaurant was not full or busy and I feel this was totally unacceptable from a 4+ hotel.

      The view from the grounds was spectacular. Our room was spacious and had many amenities. The breakfast buffet was outstanding with a great selection of food.

      No elevator on our floor in section E and we were not told about this

      We loved this hotel. It is in a gorgeous area and the spa facilities were excellent. It was also perfect for my walks in the morning. We looked over the Bavaarian Alps, heard the bells on the sheep and had great accomodations. It's a winner!

      Beautiful place, great location, good bar and functional room.

      On arrival, late night in pouring rain, it turned out that our reservation did not exist in your files - because, as it turned out, you had a new computer system installed. We had to wait almost one hour until the not very nice night receptionist (who did not know English) was helped by the bartender who assured us that we'll get a room - which he indeed helped us to get.

      Great location by the beautiful lake, close to the slopes with two nice restaurants and decent spa facilities.

      The communication between staff is really poor. Several times people were coming into the room when we were still there asking how long are we staying for. Very strange!!
