We stayed over Christmas and were overall very pleased! The room was significantly smaller and more traditional than we expected (there is only one room photographed on the hotel website and other websites and it wasn't what we got). However, it was clean and rather cosy, with a lovely welcome basket of home-made biscuits/cookies, fresh fruit and nuts. The bed and pillows were amazingly comfortable and the linen was immaculate. The bathroom was fine and it was great to have an opening skylight in there. The view from the balcony of the Karwendal directly opposite was a sight to behold! The room had a mini-bar, desk, small seating area, TV and a built-in wardrobe. We stayed on a half-board basis and, with the exception of an amuse-bouche and a starter that were not to our taste, the food was delicious (in particular: the cauliflower & saffron soup, beef consomme with venision mousse quinelles, duo of goose & duck and the blood orange sorbet with Prosecco). The menu changed each evening and there were always at least 4 courses with 3 options for the main course plus a vegetarian option. There is also a salad buffet. On the first night the menu was only available in German language but the wonderful waiters spoke good English so we didn't really have any problems - however we were amazed at breakfast the following morning to be given that evening's menu drafted in English especially for us (we were the only English speaking guests at the time). They continued to do so for the remaining nights and we were so pleased with this outstanding level of hospitality. Breakfast was excellent with a great choice of fruit, cereals, meats and hams, bread, pates and spreads, cheeses, cakes, teas and the most delicious coffee! We were the youngest guests during our stay and felt that the hotel does cater more for the more mature travellers among us. It is fairly traditional - however, given that it was Christmas, this only added to the wonderfully festive and charming atmosphere! Mittenwald is gorgeous. The hotel is right in the centre of the village with ample free parking outside. Overall highly recommended!
