We have just returned from our fifth experience of Sonja's and Elmar's hospitality at the Juffing and it continues to excel on all counts. We first stayed there in 2006 (the first English couple i believe to do so) and have been returning regularly since. Although the hotel has expanded through the provision of a modern wing and more recently an outdoor pool connected to the spa facility, Sonja and her team continue to provide that personal touch which always makes you feel valued as a guest- friends of Juffing indeed!. It was our wedding anniversary whilst we were there and our breakfast table was decorated with flowers, hearts and fluffy pigs (!). We also got a personal present from Sonja- thank you so much.
Breakfasts are plentiful and wholesome and every evening there is a six course meal (extended to a seven course gala dinner on Thursdays!). In the afternoons tea, coffee cake and salads are available for guests to enjoy. There is more than enough food to satisfy even this hungry hiker's appetite!
The rooms in both older and modern wings of the hotel are spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable -the feather filled duvets and pillows ensure a comfortable and rested night's sleep.
Words alone cannot describe Hinterthiersee as a haven of tranquility for a fabulous break. The facilities available at Juffing ensure that you don't have to move but just enjoy the surrounding views if that is your wish. if however like us you are a little more energetic then there is plenty of mountain and lakeside walking starting from the hotel which also has mountain bikes available for guests.
To our amazement there are still few (if any?) UK tourists visiting the area. Being close to the south German border it is understandable that the majority of guests from our experience appear to come from there but the hotel website is now in English and a few more English speaking travellers would i am sure be welcome. You won't be disappointed! We cannot recommend Juffing highly enough. We will keep going back -thank you Sonja and Elmar and see you next year!
