“The best hotel we ever stayed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Yes, honestly this is probably one of the very best hotels we ever stayed!!!Except a few minor things this hotel is really great in every way....tell it and it's available most things for free like for example bycycles! The junior suite we stayed in was really BIG and HUGE with an unforgettable view standing on the balcony surrounded by snow-topping mountains everywhere! You can really speak of "a million dollar view" and you can enjoy it all day and night!
Let's talk now about there restaurant.....about those wonderful buffets, about those wonderful a la carte dishes, about the saladbuffet to start....about the dessertbuffet to finisch evey meal.....ALL MEALS in this restaurant are great, we enjoyed every single dish which was prepared by a wonderful kitchen-crew, they made us feeling happy everytime we went down for breakfast and for dinner but it's not finished yet......also at noon and in the afternoon the hotel thinks of us.....at noon with a small salad buffet at the bistro and in the afternoon a piece of cake to choose !
The only minor MIN-issues are : no free wifi in the rooms witch is rare for a 4 star superior hotel!
-No BVN tv-channel for Dutch and Belgian customers! = easy with sattellite!
-No fresh flowers or plants allover the hotel only plastic flowers!!
But....let this not stay away you from this wonderful and very friendly hotel, recommended if it may cost a little more ok?

Room Tip: Junior suites have a really great view of the surrounding mountains.

My husband and I spent 4 nights at this lovely hotel before going on to Munich for Oktoberfest. We wanted to to some hiking and relaxing, and the Zechmeisterlehen was the perfect base for all of our needs. The staff couldn't have been any nicer or helpful (especially the bartender Roman, who gave us wonderful suggestions for hiking trips as well as restaurants!) The hotel itself was spotless, beautiful in and out and it's location was perfectly plopped in a field amongst the mountains, but still very close to everything. They have an amazing wellness spa with all of the amenities. It was fantastic after along day of sightseeing, etc. to sit in the outdoor jacuzzi (that you access from inside and go through a flap door to the outdoors). Breakfasts, which were included, were served as a buffet in two big rooms to accomodate all of the wonderful offerings! I already miss being there, and can not wait to return!!!

Room Tip: A room facing the Watzmann mountains is unbelievable!

We were staying in this excellent hotel for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute there. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking. We were enjoying walking in forests and fields. The hotel is very comfortable and clean. The owners thought thoroughly about each detail - flowers on tables, piles of towels in baskets, different types of sugar in nice bowls for your tea, coffee and for someone's on diet. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. They were trying their best to make you feel home. The food was also perfect. I just was crazy about their cakes. We weren't very lucky with the weather and couldn't use the outdoor swimming pools but the indoor one was nice, not very big though - sometimes I felt like in the traffic jam. All in all, it was great, relaxing staying. I would recommend this hotel for those who is looking for quite, secluded holidays.

Stayed here four four nights with my partner. The setting is fantastic. It is right in the middle of the meadows with views across to the Alps. It's not isolated though, and there are plenty of other houses, beer gardens and so on scattered round about.

The hotel itself was spotlessly clean and family run. The staff were courteous and helpful, and always came up with excellent suggestions about what to do when we asked them for ideas. The breakfast buffet was good and tasty. My only niggle is that they didn't replenish the fruit salad and one or two other things (croissants ...) but on the other hand I didn't ask them either, so perhaps it's unfair to mention it here.

There is plenty to do here outdoors: hiking, cycling (you can borrow bikes free of charge from the hotel), and relaxing in beer gardens in the evening. There are a fair number of places to eat (hearty Bavarian fare, vegetarians beware).

It was a very relaxing break in a wonderful setting.

  • Liked — Location and friendly staff

We went to the Zechmeisterlehen Alpenhotel to relax and get away for a few days. It was well worth it. Not only is the scenery in the area amazing, the hotel itself is a great place to stay. To start the day, they provided a wonderful breakfast buffet with anything you could possibly want. To pass the day if you have nothing to do, you can stay in the spa area. They have a small indoor pool, sauna, pool table, and ping pong table for no cost. They have whirlpool tubs in the sauna area that cost 2 Euro and last for about 10 min. On top of that, the wellness center that's attached to the hotel is reasonable with their rates. The center is extremely nice and tailored to meet the guests' fancy. The hotel also serves great dinners, with a buffet and/or a main course (your choice). We stayed in the Watzmann. It was a very large room with a good view of the surrounding mountains. The bathroom had 2 sinks, a small shower, and a magnifying mirror. Plenty of space to put away/hang your clothing. The carpet and furniture was a little old(not in the neat way), but it didn't matter in the end. 1 computer with internet service (free) is available for guests down in the lobby. Overall we had a great experience from the accommodations to the service to the cuisine. We would definitely stay there again.

  • Liked — The service
  • Disliked — The old carpet
  • Tips/Secrets — Go for the halfboard, it's well worth it!

We stayed here for two nights when we visited The Eagle's Nest in nearby Berchtesgaden. The staff were incredibly helpful and pointed us in the right directions for eating out tradionally, (check out the brewery in Berchtesgaden, litre flaggons of fantastic beer and huge slabs of meat.)

The hotel laid on a delicious breakfast and had a cosy, log fire bar for the evening. There was also a nearly deserted spa with saunas, steam rooms and two swimming pools. The outdoor one was especially good for a morning dip before beakfast. The view alone will set you up for the day.

Rooms with breathtaking views, wonderful food and drink and, genuine,friendly staff. A gem.

  • Liked — friendly staff, good atmosphere, great views.
  • Disliked — twin beds
  • Tips/Secrets — a double room means twin beds pushed together so if you want a double bed, ask for one.
