“Perfect location - poor restaurant and management”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

This hotel - half distance between Munich and Garmisch - has a very nice location, right above Lake Starnberg. The village of Bernried is picturesque, has a monastery, some very ancient and perfectly maintained old houses (in the summer with beautiful flowers), is located right at the dock for the boats traveling on the lake and next to the Buchheim Museum, featuring expressionist art and other interesting collections. The rooms are relatively large and quiet, most with a view to the lake.
Unfortunately the restaurant and the overall hotel management leave much desire and need for improvement. Food quality is average at best. While the terrace and balcony are as nice as the upstairs restaurant for dinner, the food served has little attraction. The menu composition is poor (Viennese Schnitzel with stamped potatoes and a salad with poor dressing, Selection of fish with vegetable drowned in a thick, rubber like sauce, meats overcooked and tough rather than tender, fatty sauces and overcooked vegetables, poor potatoes, and more) and fits at best to a pub, but not to a striving hotel.
It appears that the complex is managed for revenue maximization and not for travelers delight. The nice location has deserved better treatment. It was no surprise, that - albeit the surrounding is populated by wealthy people - the restaurant was poorly frequented. Apparently management does not even understand the obvious signal. What a petty!

1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2009

I was attending a wedding. 8 rooms were reserved 3 months in advance. The reservations were confirmed by email.
Shortly before we arrived they informed us they had made a big mistake and none of us would have a room.
They put us at an inferior hotel in the area.
