There are few hotels that I look forward to more than the Riessersee Hotel Resort. I say this because every time I'm there, some marvelous event always takes place. This last visit, I arrived during the days when BMW Motorcycles were offering a new model to the public and nearly 100 new bikes were there for the riders. Weddings are... More

I was at this hotel for one night. It was a business trip. It took 3 tries before my room was ready for check in (two tries were after 15.00). The hotel and rooms are rather dated. My room had a bathroom door with water damage. I even found a few splinters on the floor. The food for lunch and... More

We stayed for one night as we were on a rally to Venice. We checked in early evening, not particularly welcoming at check in then got to lift to find it's not working. No one seemed to care and no offer to take our bags across the car park and up the 3 flights of stairs to get to the... More

The pictures look better than the acutal hotel. Quiet location, quite a way out of town. The decor is very dated throughout and the layout very confusing. Our room was a maisonette suite which was very, very dark. The hottub was out of action in the spar. At breakfast we told a service person that the juice ran out but... More

Dear guest, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that our decor did not meet your taste. For your next stay we recommend the suites at the lake house which are furbished much brighter and have large window fronts. We think you might like this style more.

We really enjoyed our time here. The variety at the breakfast buffet was tremendous, and the pool and saunas were a great way to end the day. The service was friendly and helpful in dealing with a piece of luggage that our airline lost. The room was bright, roomy and clean.

Let me start by saying we researched a lot before choosing this hotel. The staff is welcoming and mostly helpful. We knew the wifi was awful. It is. We knew it is located on the mountain, so getting into town takes some effort. There is a path leading into town, it is a bit treacherous, but find it. It saves... More

This regards the restaurant of the hotel. We visited the place in the early afternoon, on a Saturday, when returning from a mountain hike. Took seats, examined the menu, and never managed to get served. We spent 30 minutes trying to get hold of one of the 3-4 surly waiters, some of them did not notice, some stared, then turned... More

Well, first of all the hotel got a nice location, it's right beneath a small but beautiful lake, surrounded by mountains where you can hike or drive around with your bike. The hotel itself is obviously old, even though the main theme of it is being traditional, but it could use a renovation. The rooms are nice (we stayed at... More
