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

Our second visit to this fantastic family run hotel was even better than the first. Located in the quiet Austrian village of Ellmau, this recently renovated property is ideal for a holiday at any time of the year, whether for skiing, walking, golfing, mountain biking or just relaxing. It is hard to know where to begin as everything they offer... More

Just returned from Der Baer Hotel from our annual ski holiday and just had to give them a well deserved review. It was the first time we have stayed at Der Baer and we were delighted with the rooms, spotlessly clean (every single day) with fluffy pillows, quality towels and all the little extra's that makes a big difference when...

We have returned to this hotel time after time in little old Ellmau over the last 15yrs - we always have a Comfort room with a view of the Hartkeiser. These rooms (in this wing) have now been renovated inline with the rest of the hotel. Absolutely stunning just the icing on a top class hotel. The rooms have copious... More

After searching for a hotel that could accommodate my company's annual management retreat, Hotel Der Baer was clearly the favorite. From the moment I contacted the hotel, until the final day of the retreat, the experience was perfect. The staff was extremely accommodating, the food was unbelievably delicious and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. The conference room was ideal... More

We stayed here for the Kitzbuhel world cup downhill weekend and the stay was as perfectas we can imagine. Extremely friendly and helpful from owners to staff. The food was unbelievable really and the spa and environment were exactly what we were looking for.

I travel a lot for my work, and therefore come in quite nice hotels around the world, and I have to say that Der Baer I would consider a small hotel. Which is very good for the atmospher in the lounge and the dining area. And the attention the people have for you. We loved our stay in the hotel,... More

After several visits to Hotel Baer I returned this year for the first time in winter, I wasn't disappointed. I was holidaying with friends and we had adjoining suites in the new wing, we had a private sauna between us, very spacious and comfortable suites with wifi and beautiful views. The restaurant was as exceptional as ever. It was so... More

This was our 1st visit to this hotel. Although the friends we went with had been before, they enjoyed it even more this time. The new refurbishment is of a high standard, we had a junior suite which was very spacious. The food was exceptional with plenty of choice. With very friendly and helpful staff it made this a very...
