We recently spent two nights at the Hotel Sankt Georg in Bad Aibling. Though it has a four star rating on the Internet, it barely deserves 2.5 stars. The rooms are old with outdated furnishings from the early 60s and resembles a nicer student hostel. The student life feeling continues in the restaurant where you line up summer camp style and serve yourself passable (but certainly not 4 star) food. The breakfast buffet outshone the dinner buffet but the general feeling in the restaurant, bar area, and public lounges is one of neglect and shoddiness.
It is described as a spa hotel on the Internet but the hotel pool area was overrun with screaming children and the lounge chairs basically sit on top of the pools edge. The sauna was broken for our stay.
The wellness area offering massages, facials, and relaxation treatments is perhaps the only redeeming feature.
The Internet connection was terrible ( we had no wifi in our rooms) and the lobby lounge has two of the first computers ever made that also don't connect to the Internet.
On the bright side, there are always fresh apples in the lobby and the staff was very friendly. The surrounding landscape is great for strolling, biking and running, and there is an excellent brewery and biergarten just a few miles away called Maxlreiner that made our stay.
For families with children (which there were many durning our stay) I can understand why this would be an attractive place to vacation. There are also many outdoor facilities such as a tennis court (quite run down), children's playground, bikes for rent, soccer nets for kids, and ample free space to run around.
In the end it is an acceptable 2.5 star hotel stay but not a 4 star beauty and wellness vacation hotel as advertised (especially not for kid-less adults looking for relaxation).
