Reviewed February 5, 2012

there are lots of good things to say about kranzbach. the spa area is wonderful with three heated outdoor pools and an indoor pool. there are plenty of loungers even when the hotel is fully booked. the hotels bar areas are really stunning and great for a nightcap.

the food is good with lots of fresh local produce. the only complaint is that the restaurant is rather large and just one huge room which does seem rather impersonal. this is a slight problem generally in the hotel although staff are all friendly the size makes it seem a little institutional. the double rooms are beautiful but I stayed in a single which was essentially a small little cell with a very old shower which was disappointing for the price.

Thank you for your favourable comments on the Kranzbach Spa – the hotel is a retreat for tranquility and recuperation with the emphasis on wellness and recuperation. The restaurant is designed to give guests flexibility over where and when to dine, whilst providing all with a stunning view of the surrounding nature. You chose our Single room category, which allows guest to visit by themselves and not pay a Single Occupancy charge. All the rooms in the Mary Portman house have modern, retro fittings in keeping with the interior design of the house. The single rooms in the Garden Wing were built in 2011 and have the same high quality finish that can be found throughout the hotel. On your next visit, we would recommend you try our new single rooms in the Garden Wing.

Wellness Hotels do not come much better. The Kranzbach is located in a little castle which has been lovingly restored. The interiour is very tatsteful and lavish, a mix of modern and traditional. Amazingly friendly staff. Should be a 5 star house in my opinion. The wellness area is huge and modern, it looked brand new. Saunas are huge with amazing views into the mountains. Great food at very reaosnable prices. Also the cocktail prices are notably reasonable (7 Euros for a Mojito). Nice private areas to relax. Recommended for those who need to get a few days of total relaxation and wellness. Not good for kids, but its not intended to be a family hotel.

Room Tip: Portman house is the best part of the hotel

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon 2 years ago. Now we have a small baby and we were in the area for her baptism, we thought we'd go back and this time take our parents. We were a little apprehensive as the hotel had just opened from a month of renovations - was everything going to be completed and ready in time for our arrival - but our worries were groundless. Other than some landscaping and re-seeding, everything was perfect.

But it was not really a renovation, but an expansion. One of the things we love about Kranzbach and that we experienced this time is that the place is not crowded. Easy to get a spot by the pool, a good table for breakfast and spa appointment. But I wonder if this is still going to be the case with wht looked like 30 or 40 new rooms coming on tap. Something to think about for the future....

The food is still really great, fabulous breakfast buffet, everything really clean and the staff uber friendlu. What makes Kranbach so relaxing is that you are surrounded by everyone who is also really relaxed.

We went with a 7 month old, and the hotel is not really set up for this agr group - we knew this in advance. But the hotel was able to serve our dinner in our room, with wine and beer and what ever else we wanted, and I think we enjoyed it even more than sitting in the restaurant. No extra charge for having it in the room, by the way.

So, if you are looking for some where to stay in beautiful surroundings, in a restful environment with good food, a lovely spa and pool, than you cannot go wrong at Das Kranzbach.

We were so pleased that you were able to relive the fantastic memories of your honeymoon. The emphasis for the expansion was to give guests more space and better facilities so they can relax in peace whilst maintaining the same level of service. We look forward to seeing you again, Das Kranzbach team.

The location is amazing, a mountain plateau, one sees nothing but mountain tops, coniferous trees and blue skies. The hotel was recently erected as an extension to a country style mansion, the new part contains spa and pool faciliities, a restaurant and two wings of rooms. The rooms in the old part have more charm, while the new ones are sleek, each with a generous south side balcony. Anyway, they are spacious and so are the bathrooms. The pool area has several pools, plenty of place to rest, the spa area is amazing as well, spacious, clean, flooded with light and fabulous vistas. The breakfast is great, and dinner is at a 5 star level - quite aspirational, combination of a la carte dishes and a buffet (salad always and starters and desserts in alteration), water from a local spring gratis, the prices reasonable. Also a midday soup/salad buffet and free cakes at 15h, coffee and tea (!) against charge. Free newspapers, free bike hire, as well as ski equipment (fantastic for cross country). Internet free of charge (albeit no WLAN, and one has to deposit 20EUr for a cable which I do not find appropriate). Everything runs smooth, staff is friendly. There was a party for Xmas and everyone got a nice present. No facilities for kids - guests are mostly couples in their 30-50s. Beware that the standars are high in Germany -The hotel has 4.5 stars but is by and large better than many 5 star hotels I´ve been to. Minor minuses: staff´s insufficient knowledge of English, the bathrooms in the old mansion are in need of some LTR (the tiles have been painted and the paint is coming off), very primitive way of billing for beverages with paper invoices that you have to ask for, patiently wait to be brought and signed by you, small TV screens, no foreign language channels.

Das Kranzbach is honoured to have such an impressive report by an international agent. We are particularly pleased that the rating is generated by the guests, which gives confidence to others. We find the system efficient and easy to use so we hope more guests will find us through your service. We have just completed a building phase and so the guest now have the additional use of more relaxation rooms in the Spa area and a new panoramic sauna with fantastic views of the Karwendl and Wetterstein mountain ranges. The Ladies now have their own Spa with 2 x saunas and a steam room, with their own relaxation area. We have recently equipped the hotel with WiFi and now all rooms in the Garden Wing and personnel in the central Lobby have access.

We thank you once again for the impressive article on Das Kranzbach, and we will keep you updated on future changes in our hotel.

it is quiet, set in beautiful surroundings, perfect on a sunny summer day for relaxing outside at the pool on the natural lawn. good food in a open-setting dining room, trendy but cozy bar.
Rooms are spacious, but not luxurious; colors are a little dark for the view you get from your room windows.
PERFECT for weekend (and even better) longer get-aways for couples (no kids preferred)

This was a really wonderful find. The setting is stunning with fabulous views - perfect as a base for mountain walking, simply lazing at the spa or indulging in a few treatments. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. The hotel itself has plenty of public rooms and space so although the hotel was quite full, it did not feel crowded. The accommodation was excellent - our room (Scenic View) was comfortable and spacious. Only slight criticism was that the bed was a little on the firm side for us.
The price is not cheap, but considering that all meals and a couple of treatments are included, still feel it was good value. Prices of treatments themselves are good compared to what you would pay in the UK - and if you are concerned about stripping off, rest assured you can enjoy the pools and steam room in the comfort of your bathing costume (the 'naked area' is separated off)!
Don't really understand previous comments about portion sizes at dinner - they don't pile the plates high, but with 5 courses they don't need to (and you can help yourself to as much salad/starters and cheese as you like). This is on top of the huge breakfast selection, lunch and cake in the afternoon!
This may well become an annual pilgrimage!

I stayed in this hotel last weekend. It is just fantastic and everything anyone one want for a relaxing weekend away. The food is great great breakfast, small lunch, coffee and cake at 3 and then a great dinner. I loved all the fire places around the hotel. There is so much to do at this hotel there is no need to book spa treatments .
