They treat you like family at Alpenhotel Denninglehen; guilt-inducing, grievance-airing, grudge-holding, judgmental family. The first words from the front desk were not "Welcome" or "How was your journey?" We were greeted with "You are late. Why didn't you call?" Mind you this was not 3 o'clock in the morning. It was 8:30 pm. I didn't know we had an appointment. We asked it there was anywhere close that we could have dinner and were told that it was entirely too late for dinner and nothing would be open. We drove to Bertchsgaden (about 10 kilometers away) and found a ton of restaurants open until midnight or later.
The hotel itself is fine, clean etc. The bedding is comfortable. The bathrooms are dated, but very clean and functional. As stated in other reviews, the views are very nice, but not nicer than those out almost any other window in a 50-kilometer radius. The building was built in 1980, but done up in Alpine drag that is relatively convincing. Just don't go there thinking you are going to be in a charming 100-year-old chalet.
I would say the property is isolated, but that is not 100% correct. There are no shops, restaurants nearby, but you are in a residential neighborhood so it is not particularly secluded or private.
There is very nice indoor pool and hot tub, but it is only open from 7 am until 7 pm. Worse, the sauna is only open from 4pm until 6pm. When my partner tried to use it at 5:30, he was told that it takes 30 minutes to warm-up and by then, it would be time to close. Why even have the thing if it is only open 2 hour per day?
If I had my trip to do over, I would stay in one of the hotels closer to Bertchsgaden.
