Let's be honest: this hotel ain't cheap. Indeed, the rates are very expensive, but you get what you pay for. Excellent service, delicious breakfast and dinner menus, a great ski-in and ski-out location (including a fun tobogganing track for kids). Free shuttle service to the village of a Ellmau from the always obliging Hans Peter. For a bit of luxury... More

Returning to Ellmau is almost like coming home. Reception, bell staff, service, simply everybody goes out of her/his way to make all guests happy. Due to many years of Parkinson's I am handicapped, but I never felt like it in the Kaiserhof. Being into wine I have to complement Karl Rotheneder for his outstanding performance as sommelier, helping everybody to... More

We stayed at Kaiserhof from 16-23 July as part of our honeymoon. We loved the location it was lovely and peaceful and we enjoyed spending time by the nature pool and relaxing in the spa area. Every morning and evening we ate outside on the terrace which had stunning views. The food for breakfast, lunch and dinner was excellent and... More

I have stayed at this hotel more than once and also come just for their wonderful 'gustation' 8-course meals too. The hosts are wonderful, the food is terrific, the views are stunning and the rooms are very comfortable. It is truly my favourite hotel and I will be coming back as long as I can. It is terrific value for... More

After 5 years at the same hotel, we keep going back because the mix of quality, service and location is unbeatable. The ski in-ski out opportunity makes this hotel convenient and hassle-free! Frau Lampert, the owner of the hotel really got it right and she engages with guests in a professional and friendly way.

I had the most wonderful mini-break at this hotel. The personalized warm service by the owners who also run this small five star gem makes you feel welcome from the moment you set foot in the hotel. I spend 3 days skiing in Ellmau and the advantage is you can ski in and out directly from the hotel. The hotel... More

I have been visiting this hotel at least twice a year since Gunter and Bianca started 20 years ago. They are perfect hosts and have excellent staff. Here there is something for everyone. Skiing in winter and walking in summer plus an excellent wellness center. Each week there is a wine tasting with sommelier Karl or a cooking course with... More

This was our sixth visit to this wonderful hotel. All the staff are friendly and efficient, the surroundings are beautiful and the food is amazing. A particular highlight of any stay at the Kaiserhof is the wine tasting session with Karl-very much worth while. We had a bit of car trouble during our stay and the reception staff were extremely...

very well situated hotel on the skiing slopes. Direct access to slopes and Hartkaiserbahn. Superb food (6 course meal evenings, very large choice for breakfast). Super service and very friendly staff. Very clean, but the older part of the hotel needs some updating. Big diversity off wellness treatments.
