“Awful hotel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2009

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.
