“Top Resort Hotel in excellent Bavarian mountain location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

Top spot in southern Bavaria right on the Tegernsee lake. Best for wellness, biking, golfing and expensive shopping. Not a top place for little kids/Families, although they do have a kid pool and kindergarten. Rich people incl. international travelers (Russia, Mid East).

The hotel after renovation became extremely luxury and well functioned. The only thing which bothered me in the room is that certain luxury things are exaggerated like bath with the golden fixtures and stars

We spent four days at Seehotel Ueberfahrt and we are grateful for a spendid vacation in this splendid hotel.
The hotel offers everything a guest needs and some more. We liked a lot the spa area, with a very big swimming pool and a lot of different saunas and a hammam. It is located in a small town on the Tegern lake and it is full of boutiques, cafes, Bavarian Stuben, etc.
On our first day we were greeted with a reception in the lobby including champagne and appetizers.
Also, the hotel sent to our room a nice chocolate cake for my wife's birthday, although I have no idea how they learned about it.
The four restaurants and the lobby bar were exceptionally good and the service was impecable.
We will come again!

Room Tip: The superior room is worth the extra cost

My husband and I stayed four nights at this hotel in late September while he attended a business meeting there. We found the hotel to be top notch: luxurious without being uptight, spacious, and well-situated (if you want some R&R and are not looking for a party scene). Service was consistently professional and pleasant.
We realized upon check in that our reservation was short one night, but the front desk accomodated us quickly. Then, on our final day, we hit a little glitch: we discovered our room keys didn't work and we were locked out! It turned out the extension of our stay had not been properly communicated, but the error was quickly resolved and we went on to enjoy the rest of our visit.
We appreciated the convenience of nightly turn-down service. To signal you want service, simply flip the green switch just inside the door to the room. A red switch signals "do not disturb." Parking in the underground garage is free. As other reviewers have noted, Rottach-Egern is a good hour's drive from Munich, and a little over an hour on the train from nearby Tegernsee. You can take a cab (about ten Euros) to Tegernsee and catch the BOB for 16 Euros round trip to the main train station in downtown Munich. The train leaves about once an hour. If you're up for it, you can walk to Tegernsee. I did, and it was an easy walk of about 45 minutes one way. Note that you're walking on a sidewalk, right next to the road for the most part. It was a bit noisy with traffic, but the scenery is pleasant.
As far as the hotel's decor is concerned, I found it an appealing combination of modern and traditional. Floors are gleaming granite; the dining room where breakfast is served is a muted mix of greys and beige. The hallways are unusually wide and are tastefully decorated with modern artwork and traditional-style furniture. Everything in the public areas seems new and extremely well maintained. Decor is more tradtional in the bedroom, but our room was in perfect condition and extremely quiet. The bathroom was dark marble. With just a single sink, it was a little cramped for us, but there was a large tub and a spacious separate shower with a large round rain head as well as a hand-held shower.
The breakfast was fine, a nice mix of typical European breakfast fare: sliced lunch meats and cheese (as well as a cheese board), lots of different breads, yogurts and muesli, and a short list of items to order. I enjoyed the Weisswurst, the typical Bavarian veal sausage served with sweet mustard,but you can also order eggs cooked any way you like, and a few other things. The buffet is a little light on fresh fruit, but there is a small selection of dried, and there was also a fruit salad.
We decided not to have dinner in the Michelin-starred restaurant, because at 175 Euros per person, it was too steep for us. Items are also available a la carte, but the prices are extremely high in my opinion. (But... TWO Michelin stars! Maybe next time we'll be there for a special occasion and will splurge.) We didn't go to the other restaurant in the hotel so I can't comment. There are several traditional German restaurants within a short walk of the hotel. Don't be surprised to see dogs, including big dogs, in the restaurants - or in this hotel.
The fitness center is pretty typically equipped with a couple of treadmills, a couple of ellipticals, and some weight machines. A collection of free weights is in an adjacent room. The first day I used the fitness center, the attendant chatted amiably with me about my fitness goals and offered an assessment, but I declined. She regularly asked the others who were working out if anyone needed water, which I thought was very attentive.
My biggest complaint about this hotel is the bedding. German bedding is totally different from American bedding: in Germany, you sleep under a thick comforter that has a cover that's basically a big pillow case. My challenge is that down-filled comforters (like the one in this hotel) tend to cause me to overheat. There were no other blankets in the closet. I could have asked for a different blanket, I suppose, but chose to sweat it out. I would suggest that the hotel include a regular blanket for those guests who find feather blankets too warm. Otherwise, the bed was big and comfortable, and the pillows were nice and squishy, just the way I Iike them.
The majority of the guests appeared to be German retirees.
I would highly recommend this hotel to people who appreciate quality and who are looking for a quiet, luxurious hotel in a pretty lakeside setting. Kids would probably be bored, as would people looking for nightlife.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view to the lake.

We stayed at the Seehotel for one week with our children. All in all we had a good time there but would probably not go back again.
The hotel is very big compared to all other hotels in the area and we were a bit disappointed upon arrival to see that it is not very Bavarian. It is very modern, a mixture of all kinds of styles really, especially the main entrance hall. The driveway leading up to the hotel to show off all the big cars is way too big and right in front of the outside area of the restaurants.
The rooms are not very big and definitely need refurbishment. The furniture is quite old fashioned, the carpet was stained and the wallpaper was coming off in some parts of the room. The walls on the outside in the balcony area need repainting. The bathrooms are very "golden" and also very old fashioned, just not our taste, but very clean and spacious. Room service was great and always very quick!
The outside pool area is very small with sometimes not enough chairs for all the guests. Everything seems a bit squashed. The pool itself is very small too and there is basically no service in the pool area. The indoor poll is very big and very nice.
The restaurants in the hotel are great. Especially the Ueberfahrt Restaurant is a great experience and should not be missed! Unfortunately they do not have any kind of Biergarten where you can sit outside and enjoy the lake view. There is only one tiny bavarian restaurant with about 5 tables in the very corner of the hotel.
Breakfast is fantastic, with lots of choice and a designated buffet just for children. Again, they do not have enough tables to be able to sit outside which is a real shame. Although it was really hot and sunny we had to sit inside!
The treatments in the Spa were very good.
The best thing about this hotel is that it is right at the lake and that it has a small private and gated area on the lake where you can sit (if you get a chair, because there are not many!!) and have a swim in the lake.
Our children were absolutely fine in the hotel and they are very good with children. There are kids menus everywhere but in general there are more elderly couples than families in the hotel.

Room Tip: Definitely lake view and one of the upper floors.

my husband and i stayed here for 2 nights in early september.

I dont think i would recommend this hotel to my friends.
I did not care for the architecture of the hotel. There is a reason there are no pictures of the entrance. The lobby and rooms also seemed very dated.
2nd, I didn't get a good bavaria vibe!.
While we were there it seemed like the majority of the guests were eastern europeans and middle easterners. we rarely heard german in the lobby.
There were no lake view rooms available during our stay and so our room was in the back with a view of a large octangular skylight protruding out of the ground! (lighting the indoor pool underneath ) Painted with blue splotches! It looked like some old crashed spaceship!
Our room was on the first floor. While you needed a keycard to get to the rooms upstairs, anyone could roam our hallway. It did not seem secure.

I am told there is a michelin star restaurant, but we are not foodies so we went to the italian restaurant. It was good except for the loud guests.
The other evening we walked to egern51 down the street where we really enjoyed a a meal with germans!

The hotels breakfast was very good and it was nice to walk around the lake and into the town.
I guess my point is, we didnt want to hang out at the hotel. Because it was overcast when we were there, we had no views and didnt use the pool. Maybe our experience could have been different if we went at another time.

I would say this was a 4 star hotel.

Room Tip: not first floor!
