If you googled "ideal Bavarian gasthof," the Fraundorfer is what should pop up. From the welcoming dining room (it's really more than that, sort of a community meeting place) with its mounted heads, vast photo collections, tschotskes galore, to the snug and comfortable (and quiet) rooms with their million-Euro mountain views, it's easy to understand why this is one of the most recommended places to stay in GaP. Yes, the food is great, both breakfast and dinner, and the beer and wine is plentiful, the entertainment charming and the location (with parking) ideal. But what made it special to us was Barbara Fraundorfer, her family and her staff. They were unfailingly helpful and pleasant without forced jollity. My sense is that nothing they do is done because "it's good for business," though it is, but because that's the way the believe it should be done, right down to the homemade preserves at breakfast and the venison at dinner. Barbara also steered us to an old and little-visited church that became a highlight of our visit. We also developed a fondness for the don't-miss-it beer liqueur. As to WiFi, unless I've gone round the final bend, a real possibility, I admit, we had it and it was free.
The true test about places we've stayed is not would we go back but do we look forward fondly to going back. In the case of the Gasthof Fraundorfer, we would go back tomorrow.
