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.

This was our 3rd stay at the Riessersee Hotel in the last 6 years. We were not disappointed. The staff was very helpful and friendly and started our stay off right.

Arrived here in the dark, not easy to find at first but eventually got directions and after being told not to be put off by the fields I was a little apprehensive. However when we finally arrived it was an amazing sight, with the place sitting on a hill with lots of lights highlighting the building. The hotel itself was... More

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

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.

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
