We thoroughly enjoyed a seven night stay here as part of a small Naturetrek tour group. Because we paid as part of a larger package it's impossible to comment on price or value. The hotel is located in a somewhat isolated site, certainly part of its appeal, about a five minute drive from Bischofswiesen or perhaps a 20 minute walk, mostly uphill. Consequently, a vehicle is almost a necessity especially if you plan to travel to any of the nearby places of interest – Berchtesgaden, Salzburg, Konigsee, etc. Don't come here expecting a doorman, valet parking, or fancy shopping – thankfully it's not that kind of place.
The eco-friendly hotel and accompanying buildings are located in the midst of well maintained natural meadows and forests. Expect to see wildlife such as badgers, foxes, all kinds of birds, and abundant plants. Hotel Hundsreitlehen is a family-run business overseen by husband and wife Marcus and Angelika (always with a genuine smile) with help from their children and and a very friendly staff. Evening meals, usually featuring at least one traditional Bavarian selection and always a vegetarian choice, are expertly prepared by chef Marcus and portions are generous. The typical German hotel breakfast is served buffet style with cooked to order eggs available. Meals can be taken in the large, airy dining room or eaten outdoors weather permitting.
Almost all rooms have spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, though some (single rooms perhaps) in the back are far less stunning. Our spacious room had a very comfortable bed, good storage, an indoor seating area, and a generous size balcony with a great view. The bathroom was adequate though not large, and shelf space was skimpy. Cleanliness in our room and throughout the hotel was spotless and housekeeping service was prompt each day.
The only real complaint is the obstinate and sometimes weak Wi-Fi service (free) which realistically is available only in or near the 'computer room'. This is probably not a major drawback; in fact, it may force guests to spend more time enjoying the beautiful surroundings and the family atmosphere.
