“Clean Rooms, comfortable beds excellent food”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

We stayed overnight at Gasthof Risserhof on our way up to the UnterAllgau having just come up from Sicily via Naples, it was about 2300 when we arrived in Scharnitz looking for overnight accommodation. We were immediately helped and shown to our room with no problems. The room was basic, but clean, tidy and the beds were comfortable. Next morning the breakfast was excellent, with lots of choice and very tasty.

At 64 euros very reasonable and we would not hesitate to stay there again, if it was on our route.

When we arrived late afternoon the bar was full of noisy revellers - I thought they were about to start yodelling!

We had to wait a long time to check in.

The room was very basic, with no comfortable chair. But thankfully the noise and smoke from the downstairs bar did not intrude and there was a non-smoking section for the restaurant.

Dish of the day for dinner was quite good and breakfast was quite acceptable (the drinkers from the day before were already installed in the bar and drinking beer!).

We chose this hotel over others locally as it had its own restaurant and for a single overnight stop we don't like to have to go out searching somewhere to eat. It seemed a little overpriced, but then Austria generally seems expensive to me.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have terraces, but you need to make sure that you can't hear the noise from th...

We booked this hotel because it was near to the start of our walk in the Karwendel mountains. Scharnitz is about four miles from Mittenwald, over the border in Austria but is small and lacks the character of its German neighbour. Our room was reasonably sized, clean and the beds were comfortable. Like most Austrian and German hotels they are set up as doubles. I had emailed to ask if a twin were possible and we were placed in a room in which the double could be split into two singles. There was access to a communal balcony running along the front of the building, with chairs for each room. The bathroom was cramped but the shower worked well. One drawback was that the hotel faces onto the main road so there is traffic noise from early morning. As well as a la carte the hotel offers a menu of the day at 14.50€ which was very good value - a huge mixed grill as main course. Breakfast is self-service - the usual cereal, cold meat, cheese, jam with the addition of an egg-boiling machine! Service was good and we felt the hotel was good value.

Owners were miserable, we felt very unwelcome throughout the entire stay. We spoke german to them, but all we received were grunts and nods. They were rude, grumpy and impatient. The food was horrible, but average prices. The rooms were ok, clean, beds were comfy. The breakfast staff were cheery and helpful although again the food was horrible. I would not reccomed this hotel, simply due to the miserable owners who made us feel so uncomfortable.

Last year, my friend and I stayed in Scharnitz for Oktoberfest. When we got off of the train after 32 hours of straight traveling, we hit this sleepy little mountain town at 9 pm, long after everything had closed. We hadn't eaten a thing since we landed in Stuttgart, it was dark, and we had no idea where our hotel was. The only place that was open was the Gasthof Risserhof. We went in, and even though they were closing and there was a language gap, the owner's wife kept the kitchen open and served us some delicious food. After gratefully enjoying this meal, we figured out that our hotel was 3 km away up a dark, windy mountain road at 10 pm. Hearing of our situation, the night manager refused to let us walk and called her husband to drive us up to our hotel. After some half-hearted protests, we relented and met up with him, where we found out that he was the owner of the place. For the next week or so, whenever we were in Scharnitz, we took our meals there and drank there and always had a wonderful meal, good company, and felt welcome. Though I cannot speak of the rooms, the hospitality at Risserhof is the finest I have ever encountered, the food is incredible, and anyone would be well advised to stay here.
