“A beautiful place to be for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

My family and I stayed here for two nights during Christmas. Our daughters are 14 and 12. They did not have interconnecting rooms available. We stayed in rooms 306 and 310. During Christmas they have a wonderful buffet. Everything is closed in Garmish, etc. When we booked this, we weren't sure we wanted to be outside of Garmish. However, this was a great place to stay. We spent Christmas Day at the top of the Zugspitz. The train is right outside to take you up there. It is a magical way to spend Christmas Day. There is a cute little chapel next door to the hotel that also has Christmas Eve services. While it wasn't snowing, it was still a wonderfully magical place to spend Christmas. There are a lot of locals here. So it made the experience very authentic.

Room Tip: We enjoyed our room selection as we could hear the train whistle in the morning. The town is very q...

My family and my partner's family and I stayed for two nights for New Year. After we had departed the hotel fraudulently debited a further £267 from my account without authorisation or written consent meaning they must have copied my card. Despite the hotel being made aware, we are still waiting for a refund. If you want a hotel that acts with integrity and honesty avoid this one.

I've stayed here twice. First time was in a single room. Kind of Spartan but bed was comfortable and it was quiet. Located on the edge of town at the base of at the base of Hammersbach Gorge. Nice hiking trails leading up to the glaciers on the Zugspitze.

Second stay was with family. Check for package deals on their website. They were offering a Spring Alpine package at the time, reduced rates with train and lift tickets thrown in. This saved us money on transportation into Garmisch and allowed us to leave our vehicle parked for the duration of our stay.

About a half hour train ride to the top of the Zugspitze and a little over an hours drive to Newschwenstein castle.

We were given two beautiful rooms that easily accommodated our six people. One 'room' was two floors with a king size bed, bathroom and TV on each floor. The other 'room' had a king size bed and a twin bed and two bathrooms. This room was an end unit right next to the stream that runs down the gorge from the glacier. The babbling brook made for idyllic sleeping conditions.

Underground swimming pool was pleasant and the meals we ate in the restaurant were above par. Breakfast was a very large buffet and included with the rooms.

I would highly recommend and if I have the chance to go to Garmisch again, will be staying here again.
