We spent a long weekend at this hotel, and really enjoyed it. The setting is very pretty, the hotel has a nice relaxed atmosphere to it, and the customer service is very good. There is a spa in the hotel, however, it was fully booked up before we checked in so we weren't able to use it.

The hotel is well located, as is a quick drive into the main town or to the lakes around the area.

The restaurant in the hotel is okay, but as a tourist, I preferred the restaurants in the main town area.

Looking out on the Bavarian Alps is a good start.. this hotel has a great traditional bavarian style to everything with great food and really positive service from the staff. The rooms are huge and well appointed, spotlessly clean and perfectly finished.

The hotel is under renovation. So no room service. not much to eat. Food at breakfast is average. Rooms are good, clean. Not much to say really. Love the Clairins products in the bathrooms. Has this cottage feel to it. not much to do around here either.

We used the Alpenhof Murnau as our base to go to Oktoberfest. It was great not being in Munich with the throngs. We had a driver for the 30-45 minute drive into the city. We were able to leave the craziness behind and enjoy the beautiful views of the Austrian Alps. We were upgraded to a nice two story suite. The bed was comfortable with great linens and all bath amenities that you would expect. Service was surprisingly efficient with English speaking staff. When I asked at the desk if there was an ironing board and iron in the room, I was informed that there was not but that they would provide if I called housekeeping. By the time we got to our room after a drink at the bar, the iron and board were there. No phone call necessary! Very efficient--love it when you don't have to ask twice. The food at the restaurant was excellent and the breakfasts very generous.

We selected this hotel in Murnau to use as a base for exploring Bavaria; the location seemed central, and in addition, I am a member of SLH. Wow! The staff provided a wonderful welcome. I belong to several other hotel loyalty clubs, but these folks really gave a beautiful & generous welcome. (My other clubs can't approach SLH). Plus, the hotel was full, and we were upgraded to a suite! Fabulous, as we were staying 4 nights. The suite was very nicely appointed----the bathroom was really well done, with plenty of room for both of us. The Clarins amenities were great, and were provided in generous quantities. We even had a terrace with a beautiful view of the Alps. The beds were comfortable, and the linens were superb; featherbeds were perfect, and since the nights were cool, we slept with the windows open. The staff spoke English very well, and were always willing to help with our questions. Breakfasts were generous European-style buffets, with a wide variety of foods, including a selection of very wicked pastries that were delicious. Just a couple of minor criticisms: there was a very strong "scent" in our room (not sure----febreeze or just air freshener?). Even with windows open, the scent never went away. And, during busy times, the restaurant staff had trouble keeping up; maybe they were understaffed? This was a very busy time, and the hotel was full. We had room service one night, and it was timely and good. Also, we sent laundry, and they did a great job, even on the dress shirts. We were mainly touring, so I did not use the spa, but I hope to return and take advantage of it. This hotel is well-located for driving through Bavaria, and the town of Murnau is charming as well. I would recommend this hotel, and I would definitely return.

From the outside you may feel this is just like any other pension type hotel but it isnt. Walk in the front door and you know you are in a wel polished and upmarket hotel. It retains it's Germanic qualities - Reception staff wear traditional dress and are so very helpful with anything you need.

It's about 1.5 hr from Munich airport but we did travel round Munich in rush hour.

I was staying as part of a business meeting so I can't comment on the spa facilities but the rooms were lovely and equipped with Clarins goodies. When I realised I had left my toothbrush at home ...I discovered Clarins also do toothbrushes and toothpaste !

Every bathroom comes with a rubber duck in tradional German dress. you are free to take it home.

If you are planning a meeting it's great. We had a small meeting and the room was well soundproofed so we were not disturbed by adjacent meetings. Break time food was excellent. Better than the average biscuit. The scalextrix in the break out area was particularly popular.

Room Tip: I think they are all good. I had colleagues all over the hotel and heard no complaints.

The hotel is in a picturesque location. Service excellent, the staff is helpful. Nice, but expensive restaurant in the hotel. About 10-15 minutes walk to the center of Murnau, 15-20 minutes walk to the station. The hotel is ideal for those who travel by car. We plan to return next year.
