“Embarrassed by the Hotel team's behaviour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2011

Altogether a nice little hotel worth its price. Tasteful room and charming 70's style lounge. Breakfast a bit poor, but not a problem. Why then would we never even think about coming again ? It's a little story. We had booked two nights, Friday and Saturday, and were very happy to have found something on a crowded summer weekend. We had asked on the phone, then confirmed by email and were even given an e-mail confirmation by the hotel. But when we arrived, we were told by the senior boss and her son simultaneously that there must have been a misunderstanding: of course we had booked for one (!) night only. Fortunately, help was promised until the morning. Saturday morning came. After breakfast, we met the boss' wife as the third of the team only to be told that nobody had done anything so far for us. She then offered to call one neighbouring guesthouse just to let us know that now everything possible had been done and all that was left was to contact the tourist information. And all this is just a short version of all the excuses of the three of the team. Altogether, it felt so embarrassing to see three adult people work together theatrically just to fill a one-room-one-night gap in an otherwise sold-out hotel ! It did also have a funny side, though....

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2007

Accommodation can be difficult to find during high season in the small towns and villages surrounding Lake Tegernsee, so we asked German friends to help. They visited the area last February, found this little gem and immediately made a booking for us. Although only rated 3 stars, it was spotlessly clean and the rooms, which are simply furnished, are of a good size and very comfortable. Each of the 19 rooms has either terrace or balcony, and each has its own bathroom with bath, shower, wash basin and toilet.

We regarded this as a real bargain, especially since the room price included a splendid buffet breakfast with a wide selection of dishes which changed daily. The nightly rate was only 70 EUR (less than 50 GBP) with no extras for taxes. The peace and tranquility alone were worth this when compared with the town of Tegernsee, whose main street had a constant stream of traffic from early morning to late at night.

Although the hotel is secluded, and in the village of Rottach-Egern, it is only a 5 minute stroll to the lakeside and several restaurants and cafes, and a further 10 minutes to the centre of Tegernsee with its numerous hotels facing the busy main street.

Anyone who appreciates the comfort of a friendly family-run small hotel, rather than expensive luxury, will feel quite at home in this hotel.

  • Liked — The room with its nice little balcony and the splended breakfasts
  • Disliked — Nothing
