Close to being a 5 star, but breakfast falls a little short. Served as our base camp for 3 nights while we explored more of the Alpine Road. Post is a family run (Meyer) traditional brewery guest house and the hotel itself is adorable. Styled with dark woods and Bavarian decorations, our room, 28, was a nice size with a comfortable bed, desk, additional chair, lots of storage with large windows. Bathroom was a nice size and clean, typical small shower.. As is usual with traditional smaller hotels, there is no elevator and no A/C (we were here in September and room was very comfortable, nice breeze during the day with open window, kept window closed at night). Room overlooked beer garden but weather was rainy so we didn't have an opportunity to sit outside.
Nice touch is the complimentary bottle of beer and water in the room, even replenished each day. Karl Meyer, who is featured on the beer label, visits the dining room each night to say hello to the guests, another personal touch.
An unbelievable feature is the quick and bargain price on laundry service. Another family member (we assume, didn't get her name) is unbelievably efficient, she took care of everything we needed and washed 3 pairs of jeans in just 2 1/2 hours. When we went to pay at check-out, we assumed it was 5€ per jean but they insisted on only charging us 5€ total! She is fluent in English, lived in California for a number of years. Most of the staff spoke at least some English and they do have English menus on hand.
WIFI is free even though the receipt you are given says there is a charge. My guess is that they recently stopped charging.
There is a parking lot behind the brewery, on a side street. We were able to find parking, but it was limited. Do not try parking in the parking garage - it's really tight and cars had a lot of difficulty getting in and out. The hotel recommended we park in the lot and we followed their suggestion after seeing the garage. It's best for bikes and motorcycles.
Restaurant is very popular with locals, make dinner reservations upon arrival. Tuesdays through Thursdays, the dinner special is Schweine Haxe, a full pork knuckle, with a dumpling, cabbage salad and 2 free beers of your choice. They run out early so be sure to reserve your Haxe when you make the dinner reservation. Our Haxe were beautifully prepared, very moist and came right off the bone. Sauce was a little salty for our taste. Menu is traditional Bavarian and everything we tried was very good.
Their house brewed beer is helles, dunkles and dry double hopped beer (Hopfen Royal). Their beers are excellent, really enjoyed the Hopfen Royal which is considered an aperitif.
Only disappointment was the breakfast which to me is a defining feature of a guest house. Nothing bad, but just average and not as good as the rest of their operations. It's a typical breakfast, no complaints about choices, just that the meats, cheeses were of average quality, not as good as comparably priced guest houses. What bothered us most was the chopped fruit salad that was mushy and tasted canned. But they did have some fresh fruit available. Had hard boiled eggs sitting out, none to order.
Overall, a really nice experience at a Bavarian guest house with wonderful family service.
