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

We were so tired down south Bavaria and could not be bothered driving back to Munich. I quickly reviewed the ratings of this resort on my mobile and decided to go there with my wife and 4-year-old boy at sunset time, and expecting a fully booked response. However, we decided to give it a try. Upon entering the resort, the... More

As me and my wife looked for a soul recharging place, we stumbled onto this beautiful place. Combining traditional furniture with a big comfy bed, along with excellent food and astonishing spa area... there is nothing much else to say. Warm and kind staff. Bravo! P. S. the wifi could get better.
