We stayed here for three nights during a long German holiday. We booked a Maisonette suite, which was huge and had a large balcony. The room and hotel as a whole was very clean. The reception was only ever staffed by one or two people and seemed to struggle to cope with numerous phone calls and a queue of guests... More

Staff were very attentive. Arrived late at night and restaurant was closed. Staff at bar got us hot water flasks to cook our cup noodles. The following night the staff saw us and checked whether we had our dinner already and if anymore hot water was needed.

I stayed for business and was pleasantly surprised with the Loft style bedroom open and floating above my quaint living room with Superb view of the Garmisch Valley below!

We booked a 2nights stay through secret-escapes.de with half board. Found out that the half board incl. only 2 breakfasts and 1 dinner. We waited 20 min. before I asked if we could order something. The 4 course dinner was very nice though. The lake is more a pond. The suite ok but not special.

We spent a beautiful weekend up at the Riessersee Resort. The rooms are tastily decorated, apartment style with all amenities one needs. The bathrooms maybe a bit small but, then, got everything inside and one is easily compensated by the generous sofa combi with large flat TV, high quality bedding etc.. Food was high quality throughout, wr had perfect b'fast,... More

Decided to extend our stay in Bavaria for a few days and found the Riessersee Hotel on Tripadvisor. What a treasure! Our four days there were absolutely magical between the hotel itself, the surrounding scenery, and the easy day-trip access. The double room was clean and comfortable. We were fortunate to have a balcony facing the lake and the Alps.... More

We had a lovely weekend stay here in March. My husband stayed in a smaller room for business during the week and then switched to a larger Maisonette suite during the early afternoon (before normal check in time) when we arrived. They provided a baby bed (per our request) and helped to prep the sofa bed for our other child.... More
