Bavarian trip with wife. Stayed at the Landhaus (AKA Gastehaus) Sonnenbichl for eight days straight. Bottom line up front: decent lodging but nothing to write home about, and owners make up charges as they go and charge your card after your gone.
I don't speak a lot of German and the owners--who live on site and directly handle all affairs--don't speak a lot of English. Cold breakfast is served daily from 8:00 to 10:00. I didn't know breakfast wasn't included in the price, and the owners were so put out our first morning when we went to have breakfast in town, I falsely assumed it must have been. Shame on me. However, when the owners charged my credit card for a breakfast we didn't have because we didn't expressly decline breakfast the day before, and gave as a reason after the fact "because we can," then shame on them.
I don't want to sound like I'm complaining, and I normally leave above-market-rate reviews, but I was also a bit put out that I was charged for a night I didn't even stay there. My wife and I decided to take an overnight trip to Salzburg, Austria (beautiful city; well worth the drive; stay at the Sheraton), and had let the owners know in advance that I wanted to check out for one night so as not to pay for two hotel rooms. They claimed I didn't give enough advance notice (they didn't say how much was required...apparently 24 hours isn't enough) and I ended up paying for an empty room. I was also charged for internet when one of the housekeeping staff, who gave me the login info--assured me it was free. Sauna also cost extra to use, I think 12 Euros per day.
Hotel was very clean. Bed wasn't particularly comfy. Two twin mattresses on a king frame. Best thing going is the view. You can see that on the website. What you can't see are the ad hoc charges. If you know both German language and German lodging law, then this may be the place for you. Otherwise, I would recommend avoiding.
