Unfortunately we only stayed at this hotel for one night on a recent trip to Germany and hope that we might be able to return sometime! We stayed off season but right at the start of winter. The setting for this hotel is breathtaking up on a hill overlooking the Alps. It has a nice homey feel! The rooms were... More

I was striking out for hotels in GP. A kind concierge suggested this hotel, and wow what a difference it made. Up on a hill overlooking the valley, beautiful views from the flower filled balcony, it couldn't seem to get better. Then it did. We went to the pool and spa area and wow, how cool was this gem of...

I stayed here for 3 nights half-board with family. The hotel is traditional and theres alot to do in the local area. We had two suites which were very spacious across two floors each, one had two balconies and two bathrooms which was convenient. The food on the half board option changed, one night a la carte but another was... More

I've recently stayed at the Riessersee hotel in Garmisch with my family. As we arrived, we were greeted by angry customers who had been waiting for 3 hours for their room to be cleaned which raised our doubts but as it happened, our room was ready and we were offered complimentary drinks on our arrival. After this, one of the... More

Dear guests, thank you very much for taking the time for a statement and giving us compliments for your stay. There is only one thing we would like to correct: The Riessersee is - on the deepest point - just 4 metres deep, so please don´t worry to swim there. Nice to hear that everything satisfied you and we are... More

You can't beat the location of this hotel! Beautiful lake on the property, access to hiking trails right from the hotel grounds. We stayed in the loft rooms. Great view, friendly staff. Would definitely recommend staying here. Only complaint I would have is hard to get wifi connection but the location makes up for it.

Spend three days in a business conference and it felt great. The location is surrounded by beautiful landscapes and the room was perfect. Room's living room on bottom floor with nice furniture and a veranda with great view. Second floor with nice and comfortable bed, where you could still see outside. Hotel employees were helpful when needed.

The hotel is not that suberb as the classification ****S promises. The hotel has a nice pittoresque setting (30' of walk from the center) but avoid this hotel when you don't have a car available. The sauna area is rather small and basic but there is a large swimming-pool. The rooms are correct with a terrace, they are clean but... More

My sister-in-law booked the room so I didn't know what to expect. We received a suite with an upstairs and downstairs and two bathrooms (upstairs bathroom had a bidet). Both bathrooms were large and the lotion, shampoo and conditioner (a rarity in europe) were of exceptional quality. The bathrobes and complimentary slippers were also appreciated when we came back from... More

Very nice hotel. Wait staff were very nice. Would recommend again. A little expensive but worth it. Not many speak english but it was OK. Beautyful location on the lake. Suggest walking the trails to the Bobsled sites. It is worth it to see the Olympic sites from 1936.
