The hotel has a large plus point and that is the unique location! But otherwise we ask, why this hotel 4 stars. The cleanliness on the room leaves much to be desired, dusty already on the day of arrival. Caution is required with the showers-perilous in a bath tub with high entrance and without handrail etc. The staff very unfriendly! The majority of of the staff hardly speaks German, very difficult communication! The cleaning ladies very rücksichtlos and …  read hotel review

4 stars superior.
  • Hotel not recommended
  • Families

  • Skiing and winter sports
  • March 2014
4 star superior. Our expectations were large. Rooms: nice and big, with extra room for our 10 year old son. Unfortunately on arrival not properly equipped. (bathrobes were missing and for 3 people not enough towels available, toothbrush glass were missing). Only on repeated demands came after hours of the necessary things. Unfortunately also very superficially cleaned. Dust behind the tv over 2 days. The rooms were during our stay often only after 15 o'clock finished. Half-board: the food was very good, both the breakfast buffet and the dinner in form of a buffet presented. Service: both at the reception ... and in the restaurant the service was not always friendly (there were naturally also exceptions). Personally we have no bad experiences, but some received, what really irritated. Our opinion needs the staff in need of training, as you yourself guests in a 4 star hotel opposite situation. Several times we heard, the table in the evening didn't work. Rather than the guests to apologize, it was also for, not on the list to. Here i would emphasize, that we always had our table and had no problems, but with the waiting for we often heard. Drink orders and plates away to the tables by the buffet has taken far too long. It was often not clear who was responsible for what. Several times was the whole service team for minutes disappeared. It was missing, the presence of a leader, to the right to see. The was everywhere in the hotel. So finally we come to the swimming pool and sauna we particularly looking forward to. It was on the day of arrival a saturday was a disgrace. There were dirty towels around, the containers overflowing, no service at the pool or in the sauna towels disposed. No fresh towels to change. The continued until monday back, there was obviously again sufficiently laundry available and the sauna and pool area seemed clean. Not enough chairs at the pool, although enough space would have been there. The jacuzzi. Well on the floor you could yourself to not take a closer look elsewhere. The showers in the sauna, not only the work. Bottom line: actually a very nice hotel with a lot of potential. Unfortunately, an apparent lack of a sound management, we have often had the feeling, everyone pulls be thing by without sufficient control. For a 4 stars superior must change things. With a clear conscience can we not recommend this hotel, unless you are on one of the many things, but accumulate, away. Positive is really the kitchen to mention, the food was always good. read hotel review

    30 minutes walk from/to garmisch/least quite steep hill. With car five minutes from the centre Very quaint on the lake with a cosy restaurant, where you can also sit outside. Hiking trails lead to a few cosy alpine pastures in the area. If you are looking for peace is true, if you are looking for night life - rather not.

    We had a maisonette booked. Advantage: very quiet rooms. But: everything totally 'worn.' Scratches on the floor, the doors. The bathroom mini - there are no two people therein. Bathtub and silicone - well, probably already clean, but clearly worn., In two floors new tv - a bonus, and we were not to the tv look were there (=: Mini bar available, was replenished. Here everything was ok.

    The main restaurant, for me the charm of a bahnhofsvorplatzes. The conservatory is nice and bright, but noisy, if well visited. The breakfast was more than average. Unfortunately also by guests weighted, the 'touch' had. A ordered fried eggs was only halfway through, the bacon disgusting - nothing great at the body to say, unfortunately. But certainly was the partly bad were lovely. We had dinner only in the seerestaurant restaurant, the everything was delicious, here nobody could complain.
