We spent two nights here in a family room during the middle of October. The town was wonderful, mountainous setting was beautiful, and the hotel was centrally located in the middle of Oberau. The room was great and the hotel had an awesome whirlpool/sauna facility. Our stay included breakfast which was also wonderful, very typical European breakfast options. The only... More

We stayed here on a tour for two nights. It was damp and cool outside and inside as well. The beds were comfortable, but just a little bit too close to the wall making maneuverability tough. My husband discovered the hard way that warm water for a shower is the luck of the draw. Being a bad sleeper on vacations,... More

There's a reason we keep coming back. Location, value, Bruce and Lisa, etc. you simply can't find a better hotel in this gorgeous area. The amenities continue their upgrade. The breakfast is good, and restaurant and activity recommendations always hit the spot.

Stayed here with friends, family and a dog for 2 nights in May. We had 2 rooms and they were both nice and big. Only thing I was missing, was heating. Even it was already May, it was quite cold outside and the rooms were also quite cool / chilly. The location in the middle of a small village was... More

Had a lovely 3 days in Bavaria with Hotel Forsthaus being our base of operations. Located on the edge of town with gorgeous views of the Alps, we had a family room (2-room suite). Rooms were good size, one with balcony that had table and chairs. Comfortable beds. The staff was wonderful. Owners are American and very friendly. At breakfast,... More

We met my daughter's family in Germany during their military stay. She located Hotel Forsthaus on Trip Advisor, providing an excellent start to our vacation. Very clean, reasonably priced apartment with breathtaking view, outstanding service and staff, and an excellent concierge who steered us to all the right places during a lovely breakfast. Thank-you so much for sending the souvenir... More

One of the best places we've stayed in Europe. The room was extremely clean and the staff and owners were a pleasure to deal with. Their English was excellent, they accept VAT forms, the price was very reasonable and the wifi was fast and free. Very happy with this place.

We have stayed here before in the regular rooms, and this week rented the apartments. The owners are very friendly and attentive, very welcoming to families and pets and speak perfect English. My parents stayed here frequently when they were living in Germany, we will continue to stay here and recommend to our friends (who have also enjoyed their stay... More

We were so glad to have read online about this hotel.
