Reviewed May 29, 2014

My wife and I stayed here in late May 2014, unfortunately for only one night. The room we stayed in, #20, was on the third floor facing south up the valley towards the Alps - absolutely stunning view. The room was large, with a large bed under a sky light, and a separate sitting area. The bathroom had a shower only, and was sparkling clean, as was the rest of the room. Staff spoke good English and were very eager to ensure that we were well-looked after during our stay. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel, run by the same family. Food was tasty. The breakfast buffet was really good, with lots of variety. There is no internet at the hotel, but we found that not to be a big deal, as it actually contributed to the relaxation factor in staying there. We will be back.

Room Tip: Try for one of the rooms on the south side of the building, facing down the valley. Best view.

This was a special visit as I was returning to the hotel after having worked here as a "zimmermadchen" (maid) for 3 months in 1989. It is run by Martina and her husband; Martina is the daughter of the original owners. I'm very happy that I returned after 24 years. The place has expanded but still retains its rustic, family run charm. The staff were very warm and welcoming.
There is a nice indoor pool area that is relaxing to enjoy after a day of hiking. There are also saunas.

The breakfast buffet offers eggs, bacon, meats, cheeses, jams, yogurt, cereals, fruit salad and a variety of good breads. We also ate dinner in their restaurant every night. The food was traditional German fare (very meat-based), well prepared and delicious. The servers in the restaurant were very helpful and friendly and explained the German menu to us. The front desk staff were also extremely friendly.

The room was a good size with a shower stall and double sink in the bathroom.
It was clean and it had very good storage space. Bathrobes, slippers, pool towels and bag, knapsack and umbrella were conveniently supplied in the room. We had a balcony with views of the valley as well.

This is one of the most picturesque settings on the planet. There is a tiny chapel nestled in the valley surrounded by incredible mountains. When you step outside you can hear the cows out to pasture with their bells ringing and the rushing water of the river in the distance. This is an area in the south-west corner of Germany called the Allgau and is surrounded by Austria. The hotel is situated near the end of a road within a nature reserve. The road leads up into incredible mountains bordering Austria. It is a great base for a hiking vacation. Great place to get away from it all - no WiFi.

I hope to return again and definitely hope it won't take me another 24 years this time!

Room Tip: - While most of the staff speak English, it is still primarily a German speaking hotel (e.g. No Engl...
