“Restaurant review”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Only visited the restaurant -not the hotel- after a winter walk in the Eibsee.

The staff was very friendly, but on the other hand the food was not as good as one might expect (at least in such a place and similar restaurants in Bavaria). Quality was average and quantity quite scarce.

Anyway, it is worth noting that the staff was indeed helpful and friendly.

This is a very comfortable, family-run hotel with friendly, helpful staff, spacious rooms (many with lake view), good food, pool, lakeside beach etc. Its setting on the lake with forest walks and mountain views, including the Zugspitze (Germany's highest mountain), is splendid. With a car there are many attractions within easy reach (e.g. King Ludwig's castles and palaces, Oberammergau, Ettal, Fuessen, Bad Toelz, other lakes such as Starnbergersee). One warning: it's very popular for weddings, so take earplugs for Saturday nights.

Stayed in this marvellous hotel for a night and would love to return. The village is amazing (Garmisch) well worth a visit. The hotel has very spacious, correct rooms - we paid a little extra for a lake view - the first was without and we really wanted to see water. The receptionist (Spanish) was ever-so-helpful at all times. The hotel has a souvenir shop and the spa/pool facilities are verygood. (mixed sauna was a pleasant surprise for me!)
The food (dinner + b'fast) was top-class and the views.....

Room Tip: with lake view

Third trip to the Eibsee and once again not disappointed with the excellent service, great food and fabulous views. Staff were fantastic, very helpful especially the Restaurant Manager who helped our son to organise our Anniversary party night. Also many thanks to Dara and Elizabeta the Receptionists who helped us to settle in.

Only downside was the noise from the conference guests, strangely they make far more noise than the wedding party!

Room Tip: Try to book Second Floor from 226 onwards for Lake & Mountain views - well worth it.

Was an old worn down room, smell of mold in bath room and lazy staff, very slow service except for some few. The sauna and lake was superb and the location is unbeatBle.. Dinner was great, but we would recommend ordering steak instead of the main course, it was outstanding! The massage therapist Axel Mohr was an awesome find too, book your massage in advance' thanks axel for curing my neck problem!

We've stayed here several times over the years . This is a classic hotel with a fantastic setting in the Bavarian Alps. The scenery is breathtaking. The hotel is comfortable and quiet. The restaurant is first rate. The staff is efficient, with traditional Bavarian friendliness.
