We have stayed in this hotel on many occasions over many years, but this is the first review I've written about it. The hotel's location is truly spectacular, with direct views to the Karwendel Gebirge and the Wetterstein across the lake (Lautersee). The accommodation is first class, with very comfortable beds in clean, very well maintained rooms. There is a selection of rooms including a couple of apartments that easily caters for families - we used one of these when our kids were younger. The atmosphere is fantastic and partly because of this and the fact we have stayed there many times, it does feel like a home away from home. Service is excellent and very friendly and there is always a smile coming your way. The location is one for those who love walking/hiking in the mountains and it is easy to access Mittenwald via a number of paths that lead to and from the hotel. Don't forget to go for a swim in the lake. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough!
