We spent a weekend in January in the Riessersee hotel which was supposed to be a special treat for a birthday. We had booked a suite so that we could accommodate our daughter. Unfortunately, our request to have a view at the lake and mountains was not fulfilled as one could only see the prominent balconies next to ours so that was a bit disappointing. The room itself was not very big so luckily we had a king size bed upstairs. The bathroom only had a bathtub and the switch of the mixer tap was broken so the sprinkler couldn't be used. We complained and it was repaired, but it would have been nice to hear a "sorry" from the hotel staff. Further, they did not consider preparing the sofa for our daughter so we had to ask again (of course, no apologies...). The furniture looked worn and did not make us feel like in a 4 star hotel... The restaurant in the Seehaus was good although the main course took a long while as they prepared the wrong dish. The bar was nice with pool billiard tables, kicker and a large screen that showed snowboarding movies from a projector and we enjoyed it very much: the cocktails were good and reasonably priced.
The swimming pool was large enough to swim, but the service at the Spa didn't impress: The highly recommended offer for a massage at a lower price was later on not granted as the staff members didn't agree upon what to do so the one doing the massage claimed afterwards that this had been the "normal" massage so the full price was due - not nice!
The breakfast was manifold and offered enough for everyone to fill up for the day. I would not recommend the hotel as it looks outworn and you can get much better quality for the money.
