Probably more of a winter location than summer - there are just so many better places than Ellmau to stay in Summer in the Austrian Alps (in my opinion). That being said, this is nevertheless a top quality hotel, especially now that all the rooms have been renovated. The rooms are exceptional by Austrian Alps standard. The restaurant is also... More

Great hotel with one of the best breakfasts I have ever had, the fresh pancakes were delicious. I am vegetarian but the hotel was willing to cater for my needs and the staff were very friendly. The atmosphere is relaxing. Most of the time we had the indoor pool to ourselves. The hotel was very kind to send me my... More

The rustic charm of this perfectly situated resort is a huge draw as I've returned to visit twice...the rooms are well equipped and the food in the restaurant is top notch...they're undergoing some renos but still maintaining the charm of the village it's set in. Great destination for any season....

Located on top of the hill which overviews the small village of Ellmau, the hotel is directly at the skiing run. And by "directly" I mean you can go from/to the hotel on your skies.

Hotel Der Baer is a great owner-family run operation. In my experience with hotels this direct owner involvement often makes a great difference (in a positive sense) - as this hotel perfectly proves. The team is friendly and professional and the owners made a point of briefly speaking to every guest (table) every night. We spent a wonderfully relaxing week... More
