Once one of our preferred hotels, we were surprised by the quality diminution. Since our arrival, we were suprised by the changes in the quality. Rooms missed some of the usual amenities (not really ready for new clients). As the days went on, we noticed that the minimum standards for a 4 star hotel were missing. Rooms were not always... More

Our family of four, to include a 14 & 16 year old stayed here for 2 nights in August, 2014. Here's a recap. Cons: Bathroom trash was not emptied when we checked in. The shower would be boiling hot at one minute and freezing cold the next. The bedroom did not have blackout curtains next to the bed so it... More

If you are looking for a very nice quiet four star hotel in a beautiful location with a great staff but still close to the action in Garmisch-Try the Riessersee Hotel Resort. The breakfast buffet was great and the Dinner buffet was OK but a little pricy for what they offer.

We have stayed a few times at this hotel and have always enjoyed our time here. It has been a few years since our previous stay and I can say that it only got better!

The pictures look great and make it look like you have a beautiful mountain view from your room. The reality is you look over a lake that looks like a summer camp for kids. The mountain view is only when you are at the summer camp lake. Add to that that they couldn't get the luggage to the right room... More

Dear guest, we are very sorry that we have caused you so much trouble. Be sure, the summer camp party is not our standard. Normally a holiday at the Riessersee means relaxation and calm, not party and loud music till midnight. All suites at the main building have an aircondition so we recommend this for your next stay. We don´t... More

We booked a 3-night package at this aged hotel in the Bavarian Alps. Our decision to visit this hotel was based on the advertised wellness area. The area is beautiful - surrounded by mountains with a little lake right by the hotel, which made for nice morning walks after enjoying a good breakfast buffet (great fresh orange juice).
