This was my preferred hotel when working in Munich, regardless of the 60 mile commute. The area is just too beautiful to ignore. The rooms were always excellent and the facilities superb. A little way out of town but you'll forgive yourself when you arrive.

The hotel does certainly have potential, however, the facilities have seen better days and do in my opinion no longer meet the standards of a 4 Star Superior Hotel. The service provided by the hotel staff did not meet our expectations either. For example, during the Christmas Buffet, there was a constant shortage off pretty much all dishes. Moreover, the...

This was a second stay for me in 3 years. There is nothing not to love about this place! The location, the views, the restaurant, the staff. etc. The rooms are comfortable clean and all have a view of the town below or the lake behind the hotel. The staff is courteous, professional and friendly. I would like to especially... More

This was our 3rd visit for breakfast in the past 10 years. Nothing has changed, except the service continues to improve The staff was very helpful and friendly. To die for breakfast buffet items. Lovely, light airy view. I'd go every day if I could, but alas had to return to America.

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.

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.
