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

We stayed over the new year in the hotel and will also come back. Except for little things we were very satisfied and in fact we felt comfortable. Dä food was very good. The friendliness of the staff was also very good. The location is very nice Check-in it would be good to the meal times attentive and on the table. The room was clean, but not under the bed. Bademantelgürtel was at one point in threads resolved, a few slippers were missing. Breakfast would be nice, if you other egg dishes gift. Or information, if you can order (not ... everyone wants to scrambled eggs with tomato) But there were just little things that we tolerate, because we felt very comfortable. I especially want to emphasize the restaurant at wintergartenn here was the service and the competence of a young kelleners very excellent. read hotel review

Our conclusion: the hotel meets the expectations of a 4 * + hotel unfortunately not at all. Decor or not - that you don't feel is rather on the coldness other areas, as the guest clearly noticed. It starts at the entrenched employees at the reception, which may indeed be very friendly, but the guest first let us wait. The condition of the room we couldn't complain about, but the pool area was really to cure. Next to the pool had some kind of cleaner, the hot tub was something on the floor. Oh well. The worst was however our ... booked massage. The massager talked continuously with my friend, while i masseuse massage was, the rather unprofessional shone. The hospital itself was more of a cubby hole without any flair. The breakfast was good and plentiful. Nevertheless: we are not coming any more. read hotel review

The Riessersee is a quite large, from 4 buildings existing main building and the Seehaus with about 150 rooms. The hotel is in the country house style, partly for our taste a bit tacky. The cleanliness was unfortunately in many corners something to be desired left. More about it in the categories... Inclusive service we had breakfast, but also half board is bookable.

    The staff was mostly friendly, but not always very much endeavored. At the reception were other things preferred, before one the guest side has. The waiters in the sommergartenrestaurant worked on sunday evening very sluggish. You it was pointed out that the weinflasche now behind a bucket is, as he deemed necessary periodically refill it, etc. With the breakfast there was each day problems with the refill. The room cleaning was superficially... For a hotel of the four star superior called, simply too little!

    The deluxe room is not what it says on the tin. It is narrow and not very modern. The bathroom is cramped. There was no air conditioner... Was not so bad, since we the october not to have needed. Unfortunately especially the cleaning of the rooms to be desired. Also here plenty of negligence. The room was especially at sunday until 16 hours not at all, and then only poorly made ( bettedecke somewhat straightened and exchanged towels) dirt on the floor was but not removed. Thus neither sucked or wiped. In front of the door but it was all three days long right dirt... By simple vacuum could this can be removed. Everywhere something negligence. The slippers in the room at arrival was missing, was a box from the previous person in the closet. We may further such things count...

    The hotel has a spa consisting of sauna, pool area and beauty/massage area. All in all, seemed the whole not very well maintained. In the pool the floor was also not particularly clean. In the corners everywhere a little dingy. The sauna area was a well-intentioned attempt, but if the whole a bit more would be maintained, it would be even nicer. Good is the berghüttensauna. We had for the first day the 'shi tao massage' booked. The reservation phone was difficult... One has days nobody achieved. The friendly request on the answering machine to speak and you would then recalled was also only very practical. Recalled has no one. After a few days but it was the reservation completely. We assumed that we both at the same time be massaged, so that 2 massagers there. Locally one said to us then that the massages in a row are. Was ok, but could also can say. Then asked the masseur during the massage, whether he both persons on a bill can sit... And between the a and other massage he told that these massageart did not like, the spread for him as the masseur always sunday.. Na great... Motivation pur! The painting in the pool area was for our taste too tacky. The light uncomfortable and the jacuzzi too hot... It is only a few minutes from.

    The hotel has several restaurants. The hotel was but the friday and saturday a wedding society, so that the friday afternoon for example the seerestaurant for the wedding reception was closed and the sommergartenrestauran for the evening dinner the society has been prepared. We could then only in smallest restaurant in the back corner and also got to feel, that it something to eat, but now what else to do. The food in the hotel was but the whole days over very good and really everything was delicious.
