Great family managed hotel, oldtimer staff mixed with younger people, you feel at home. Kitchen is great, wonderfull breakfast, buffet/theme style dinners (good value for the price asked). Recently renovated rooms, and a beautifullness. eye for details. Jump on your skis across the street, great for hiking in the summer. One of our favorite places in the Alps, we love... More

Booked this hotel last minute to squeeze a ski weekend in during a business trip to Munich. I was very impressed with the quality and service. Way beyond my expectations. I would certainly go back next time I am in the area.

The hotel is fabulous for it's welcoming helpful and attentive service and when combined with the excellent food and wine and smart rooms it is definitely somewhere we would go back to again. We were an all girls (well mature girls!) party with mixed ability skiing. The beauty of the hotel was there was plenty to do in the spa... More

Brilliant hotel - stayed on half-board & dinner each night was excellent. Different themes of cuisine but all with one thing in common - top class cooking. I enjoy traditional germanic food but this was not that - beautiful fish, delicate sauces & top class wines too. I would go eat at this hotel even if I was staying elsewhere.... More

Our twelfth consecutive ski break at this marvellous hotel. Everything is just perfect. The hotel , the staff , the location and mostly their unfailing attitude to providing great hospitality. We have introduced many friends to the hotel and everyone has returned. That itself tells you how great the experience is.

Since booking this hotel a few months before our trip, the more we read other reviews before we travelled; the more we were looking forward to the experience. We weren't disappointed! From our first contact with the hotel, their reception staff were really helpful in finding us accommodation to suit five families with seven kids between us. As soon as... More

A wonderful family run Hotel with class that makes you feel part of the family! Booking is smooth and efficient with the helpful Reception team. The rooms are contemporary with a Tyrolean twist and the views of the Wilder Kaiser mountains are the icing on the cake. Dinning is an indulgence be it breakfast, afternoon buffet or the evening meal.... More

If you are evaluating options in Ellmau, don't. Book the Der Baer Hotel now. We stayed in one of their 2 bedroom suites this past weekend. The room, the restaurant, the location and the staff were all fantastic and the price was very reasonable for what we received. The Hotel is family-run and has been for decades. The staff, from...

We stayed at Hotel Der Bar for four nights over Christmas and had a fabulous time! Magically, This hotel manages to combine a luxurious hospitality with a kid friendly environment – not trivial at all. On top it maintains the familiarity and host-guest intimacy that is reserved for family run hotels. We met quite a few guests that told us... More

We visited Austria for the first time this June and had an excellent summer holiday. I had been attracted to Ellmau and the Hotel der Baer by the many good reviews on this site. Sometimes the weight of expectation can be a handicap, given the effusive praise I read here but I needn't have worried. The quality of our stay... More
