“Not exactly cheap, but pretty nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

A pretty nice hotel right on the Chiemsee. The food was good (it was a grill buffet), the room pretty nice, if not ritzy, and the view from our window--right onto the Chiemsee--was hard to beat. Haven't had a chance to try the sauna, the swimming pool, or take a swim in the lake.

The breakfast was pretty decent, too. And everybody was really friendly.

And yes, I'd stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the lake...

We stayed overnight at this lovely spot after a horrific day of traveling from the U.S., having flights cancelled out of CDG, etc. Needless to say, we were exhausted when we arrived quiet late at night. The girl at the front desk was SO NICE and helpful, and very sympathetic to our plight. She spoke impeccable English and whisked us away to our room very quickly so we could get some rest. The room was traditionally furnished in Bavarian fashion, everything is in good repair. Very comfortable room, VERY QUIET. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean also. We LOVED and appreciated the peace we found here. The view of the lake out our window was just beautiful. I could have happily stayed here another night or so. Breakfast was a well appointed breakfast buffet. You could eat outside on the deck or inside. I read a bad review here on Trip Advisor and can't figure out what they were talking about! The hotel is not in need of renovation - the public areas are lovely. Maybe we were lucky, but our room was very nice and didn't smell of smoke. As for "hideous" wood paneling... really? It's pine paneling that is found in many "country inns" throughout Bavaria, Austria and the Sud Tirol. They have been using this kind of wall treatment since the 1600's - and it's lovely! This is a great choice if you're in the area and want to visit Herrenchiemsee!!

Room Tip: We asked for a room facing the lake on an upper floor. The property is so well situated in a very qu...

I was recently here for 3 nights while my husband had a work meeting that was held at the hotel. They did a wonderful job with all of the food and organization of such a large group. The rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. They spoke English well.
My favorite part of the hotel is the pool area (inside) and the whirlpool outside. Overall a nice stay. Close to town by walking. Would be great for a family vacation. internet worked well too.

These reviews must be posted by hotel staff because this hotel was so overpriced and the worst by far on our trip in Bavaria (and maybe one of the worst I have ever stayed in.) Our room smelled like cigarette smoke, hideous wood paneling - this hotel might have been great when it was built in 1979 but in desperate need of a renovation update. The "gym" was a dingy cell block in a basement with a tread mill from 1979 and no windows or ventilation of any sort. Seriously? We ate at the hotel - spent $100 USD - one of the worst meals I've had. They tried to do avant garde food - thanks for the fishy mousse??? Also, clientelle was a bunch of old retired foggies. Not great. I felt bad for everyone there being so ripped off. Definitely check out the other hotels in the area.

the Yachthotel at Chiemsee is a smallish, very nicely situated hotel; right on the lake with nice lawns sloping down to a small marina and a tiny beach. It's about 15 minutes walk from Stock where ther are bars and restaurants and from where the boats go to the islands. Prien itself is 30/40 minute walk.

The hotel itself is what I would conceive of as being very Bavarian, lots of wood and Bavarian style decor. The rooms are good, decently sized with good bathrooms and spacious balconies. Get a room on the lake side, they face sort of west west and have great views. The ones on the other side overlook the car park and the road with a forest rising beyond it. There also appear to be rooms in the attic with roof windows!


There is a small spa, which we didn't use a nd a small indoor pool, which we did. Swimming also in the lake itself.

Staff are very friendly and helpful. Restaurant is fine but maybe promises a bit more than it actually delivers.

The whole area is quiet and scenic, so don't look for night life. There are lots of water sports around.

we stayed a week.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the lake, probably worth the extra money

We spent a wonderful weekend at the Yachthotel in December. The location was perfect for us to attend the Christmas Markets. The grounds are lovely and would be exceptional in the spring/summer/fall seasons. The restaurant was terrific and the bar was the perfect cozy spot to start and end our evening.

Room Tip: Recommend a room overlooking the lake.

Dear guest,

Thank you for your excellent review and the great headline. Also in the spring- and summer month it´s a wonderful place to go swimming, cycling, hiking or just to make cultural sightseeing (Castle Herrenchiemsee, Island Frauenchiemsee, Salzburg or Munich).

We hope to welcome you again – maybe in spring or summer.

With best regards

I was lucky enough to spend couple nights in this hotel. It is an old fashioned hotel I would say, but a very good one.
I had a room at the 2nd floor with the view of the lake. As it was snowing couple days before the view from the window was a fairy tale like.
If you are there, you have to take advantage of the spa area. I used the sauna, but the swimming pool seemed to be really nice as well.
The best surprise came in the morning at the breakfast. Having stay in various hotels and being from travel industry I can say that this is something everyone will enjoy. If I skip the classics of breakfasts (eggs, bacon), there was plenty of product which seemed to be locally produced. Those would be about 8 different kinds of jams, different salami, rich variation of cheese, about 4 or 6 different kinds of bread and I could go on. I loved the breakfast - fantastic start to the day.
The food overall was just great in the hotel. Whatever we have tasted was simply fantastic.

Room Tip: I had room 212 which is spacious and overlooks the lake. It is also a corner room at the end of a ha...
