“Nice place to enjoy for some days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Very nice hotel with options to just stay there: nice Little restaurant romos, big terrasse with panoramic view, cosy rooms. Lots of possibilities for walking, sightseeing, relaxing. I highly recommend the "Vesper" in the catedral daily at 18:00 hours, where you may enjoy the chants of the monks of the monastery. The village of Ettal is very small, but anyway you will find nice restaurants for food and beverage.

Room Tip: If you like relaxing and quite places, this is your choice.

We were in this hotel last year and this year we are planning to go again. I recomend this hotel because of good price and quality.

Breakfast were perfect and delicious. We were in restaurant for a dinner and beer too. Everything was great !

Nature and mountains around hotel were amazing.

Overall there was nothing really wrong with our stay there but.... I personally think that this hotel is in need of a renovation, especially the bathrooms. We didn't like the menu on offer so we walked down the hill to another restaurant. I suspect that there are nicer hotels in the area which are in better shape than this one.

This hotel was lovely with lots of charm and appeal. It was clean and comfortable with lovely views of the village of Ettal. The breakfast was good. Internet access would have been nice.

Room Tip: We faced the hillside, which was green, lush, private and very quiet. Our family had a room facing...

After a Venice it was amazing to be in the snow capped mountains with cool temperatures in early July! Hotel Blaue Gams was quaint and comfortable. It had a very homey atmosphere. The views were awesome! The breakfast was fresh and wonderful. We were there as a family and enjoyed it very much. We took lots of nice pictures of the flowers and scenery there.

Nice B&B wonderful views of snowy mountains in the Bavaria Region, breakfast is ok, the good thing is you get your own pot of coffee which is fresh and hot to warm you up! A littel too far from the Hausburg ski area 20 minutos for a curvy and narrow icy road, other that that is worth the money.

Room Tip: fora a family of three we got a nice apartment even with a balcony!

We lived here one night on our way to Austria. We found the hotel very nice and familiar. We lived in the Gasthouse and the room was as good as we had expected. Clean and what we need. The location is outstanding with a beatyful view over the convent. We like to come back and stay more nights here. The village Ettal seems also very nice.
Only positive comments from us. We loved it.
