We stayed as a family in the Riessersee hotel in March. The staff were very friendly, the food at breakfast was also very good, with a huge selection. We stayed in the duplex rooms , however I would choose just an ordinary double room next time, .
The pool was lovely, nice to have a swim after a long day skiing.

Room tip: The duplex rooms can be very warm,

I booked this hotel for a short ski break with my friend, the hotel is well out of town high on a hill, we drive there in heavy snow up switch back roads and managed fine.
The hotel itself is quite large and we struggled to park even though I asked for parking.
The hotel is nicely decorated and friendly staff, the breakfast is very good with nice coffee.
The rooms are a good size though a little dated looking.
Our stay was very good for the price paid apart from having the hallway outside our room painted this was a major inconvenience I would say.
All in though I would recommend this hotel and the town was only 10euro by taxi

Date of stay: February 2019

A beautifully situated hotel just outside of town, unfortunatley a few things are needed in order to call this place a 4 star. Our bathroom smelt of urine, I dont know if this was due to drains or just not cleaned well. The hotel itself could do with a renovation, walls are thin here so you can hear people in corridors and other rooms. On turning over the chair in the bedroom there was a massive burn from a cigarette on the bottom (photo attached) Breakfast was amazing, I give them that! Service and selection of foods were unbeatable. The spa is somewhat a little dated but all amenities were there. I think this place could really be spectacular as it's really well situated, prices for rooms however do not show for the actual quality.

The hotel staff were very welcoming, it is beautifully situated about mile outside of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, right by the Riessersee. We stayed in a duplex, which was nice and warm with a glorious view. for the price paid it was a bit dated, although clean and cosy. We had two bathrooms which was lovely, and who doesn't like a bit of under floor heating the bathroom...

The interior is a little convoluted and I would definitely check on arrival where you would head in the event of a fire as it is not straight forward to find your way to the exits, especially if the lifts were out of action.

The highlights were the spaciousness of the room and the excellent sauna complex.
no clothes permitted inside the saunas, and so you take towels to lie/sit on. The breakfast was plentiful and scrumptious, pancakes and maple syrup, little freshly baked croissants, melon, oranges and pink grapefruit as well as many other hot and cold bits and bobs. The coffee is average but does the job and you get a large carafe for the table!

we loved our stay and enjoyed the specialness of this part of the world. Will we be back? perhaps, if only for the sauna after a long day on the slopes (and it was £40 less a night).

Hi Sally,

thank you for your kind words. We're glad, your liked your stay with us in beautiful Garmisch. We'll pass that praise to our collegues, especially these from our breakfast service. It is always great to read about the good experiences of our guests and to experience the feeling of having done everything right as a team!

In a few weeks we'll do some maintenance procedures and get some new furniture. So if you get back anytime, there will be some positive changes and our sauna will wait for you! ;-)

Looking forward,
your Riessersee Hotel Team
