“Friendly and welcoming.”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We stayed for two nights at this friendly guesthouse in June. Paula was welcoming and provided us with a map and restaurant suggestions on arrival. We ate at Gasthof Zum Stern and Zur Rose. We preferred the former due to the livelier ambience. We were the only diners at Zur Rose the night we went. The same evening we were unable to get a table at s'Wirtshaus Restaurant which indicates it's popularity. We had an excellent breakfast each day at Gaestehaus Richter in the pretty room with a view of the mountain. We really appreciated the kitchen on the landing where we could make drinks. The internet worked well with the code. There was a table and seating that you could use in the evening if you preferred to be out of your room. The room was quite small but clean and comfortable. My only complaint was that the curtains were quite thin which meant that the sun streamed into the bedroom behind the bed early in the morning. However who can complain about sun on holiday? I'd rather have that than thick curtains and rain! All in all a delightful stay.
Thank you Paula.

We had a wonderful time and were treated very good. The location was great to stroll downtown for a nice dinner. The breakfast the next morning was impressive with many local items and home made. Nice location to visit sites within the local area.

We reserved a room at Gaestehaus Richter 3 months in advance. One week before our arrival we reconfirmed our booking by email to the owner.
Less than 24 hours before our arrival in Oberammergau we received an email from the owner informing us that our room was no longer available and that we could have a room in a neighbour's house instead.
We preferred to make our own choice and, hastily, at such late notice, had to make other arrangements.
We have stayed in many BandBs, pensions and gaestehauses throughout Europe, based on reviews in Tripadvisor and this is the first time we have been let down.
We were very disappointed to receive such treatment after going to lengths to secure and then confirm our booking.

We can't comment on the facilities of this place because we never got to stay in it.
When we arrived at 18 pm, the manager had given our room to some locals that had stayed the night before and wanted to stay for another night and made a reservation for us in nearby B&B. No explanation whatsoever was given, but she emphasized twice that we were foreigners and which made us feel really discriminated against. On top of that, the place she lead us to, was definitely not up to our standards and we had to pay the same price.
When you make a reservation 3 months ahead online (Booking.com), the least you expect is that your reservation will be respected or at least you will be notified days ahead so you can choose another place. On top of that never once did the manager apologize for what she did.
We would have understood an error with our booking, but what we can't tolerate is the fact that they gave the room to other people deliberately.
On our opinion, this people is really untrustworthy.

We enjoyed a lovely 2 nights in a room with a balcony overlooking the mountains. The host Paula was friendly and breakfast great. The location is just out of town but only a 5 minute walk to Oberammergau which is very pretty.

Stayed 2 nights. Host frau Paula was the best! Like going home. Superb breakfast. What's not to like. Go down the street to visit authentic wood carver! Just ask frau Paula! She will take excellent care of you. Don't expect US amenities, but down home quality!

Our stay at the B & B was great as it's away from the crowds but close enough to walk into town in 5 minutes and suited our needs as a couple and 2 singles travelling together. We liked this much better than a large hotel and the personal, welcoming and assistance Paula gave us was appreciated. My single room on the first floor was small but adiquate with ensuite and no airconditioning but being summer I was able to open the window and enjoy the fresh air. My friends stayed in a large double room with ensuite which was very comfortable. Breakfast consisted of juice, cerial, cold meats, cheeses, fruit, toast , crossants, and Paula cooked a boiled egg for each of us. The coffee was very good. We ate in the breakfast room which is pleasant and there is a big wood heater which must heat the whole place up in winter. We booked 3 rooms but we were only given one internet code so only one of us could use our computer on our stay. When we asked about it Paula gave me acess the next morning for an hour before we left and let us check out at 11am as one of party was unwell and Paula was very understanding and although we would of stayed another night they were fully booked. Obrammergau is a lovely small town which we liked very much and hope to visit another time in the future and stay at Gaestehaus Ritcher again. Thank you Paula from Australia.
