“Charming place”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

We stayed at room 8 on the 3rd floor, which is all in wooden style, very spacious with a nice seating area and many-many cabinets and a modern bath with radio :) The hosts are soooo welcome, although they speak a little english, but they usually are willing to help you and give advice. Location is very quite and it's better to have a car to be more flexible. Breakfast is huge and diverse - with fresh yogurts, different kind of cheeses and ham,meat-balls, with fresh fruits, cakes and many more! You won't be dissapointed. As a little bonus after lunch you can always have tea/coffee with various cakes which are amazing!!! For a dinner there are few places in Farchant, but for greater choice it's better go to GP!!
We spent here only 2 days, but explored a lot - GP, Fussen, Neuschwanstein&Linderhof, Zugspitze. Could only imagine how nice here in winter! Highly recommend the place.

This small hotel is 3 kms north of Garmisch-Partenkirschen away from the city but close enough to get to without any hassel. After staying previously in Garmish and being disappointed on both occassions, we decided that this is the best solution. We had a wonderfully relaxing week at the Hotel Foehrenhof which is charming and proved to be everything we had hoped it would be. The staff are friendly and very welcoming, the accomodation is beautiful, a lovely mixture of traditional bavarian with a modern twist and is of course, spotlessly clean. Each bedroom is different - it's worth asking to have a look around out of interest, and they also offer appartment accomodation which is exceptional. The breakfast is typical german fayre which will set you up for the day, and coffee and cakes are on offer in the afternoon. You have to venture out into the small town or to Garmisch itself if you want an evening meal. There are no wellness facilities at this hotel which is a bit of a shame as the weather wasn't nice enough for us to ski. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel and hope to go back again sometime soon.

Room Tip: All the room are quiet. We had requested no17 as it was reasonably large and we were staying for a w...

This is a very warm, welcoming, and fantastic place to stay just about 3 km north of Garmisch-Partenkirshen. The town of Farchant feels a bit more low-key, authentic and less touristed than GP, although GP is very charming, especially on the Partenkirshen side. We stayed in rooms 8 and 9 on the third floor. These two rooms are perfect for families with 2 to 3 children as there is ample room and a shared bathroom. Everything was spotlessly clean and fresh. The beds and bedding were very warm and comfortable. The breakfast includes delicious freshly baked rolls, cakes, fruit, cereal, yogurt, cereals, meats, cheeses, salmon and eggs as well as a simple to operate coffee machine which will make coffee and hot chocolate any way you like it. From 4:00 to around 6:30 p.m., there are fruits, delicious home made desserts of all types and coffees available for guests. The outdoor terrace is lovely as is the Bavarian dining room, with its crisp white table cloths and warm atmosphere. The owners and all who work there are very friendly and helpful. They will provide you with maps and dinner restaurant recommendations. The hotel is a centrally located base for exploring the area if you have a car and is easily accessible to Ettal, Schloss Linderhoff, Garmish -P., the Zugspitze, Mittenwald and Oberamagau. Too bad we weren't able to stay longer.

This is the second time we have stayed here. Our stay here the second time was just as good as it was the first time. You are minutes from all the major tourist sights and ski slopes around the Garmisch area. The hotel serves breakfast every morning and cake/coffee every afternoon, this is included in the price of your room. The wait staff is more than accommodating and on the plus side the hotel is animal friendly. Dinner is not served at this hotel but it was not a problem for us since there were restaurants within walking distance from the hotel.

Minutes from all the ski slopes and tourist destinations in the Garmisch-Partenkirchen area. Staff is wonderful and will cater to your needs. Breakfast and afternoon cake/coffee are included with the price. More importantly, they are very animal friendly. The only downside is that they do not serve dinner, but there are plenty of places nearby.

We spent one night here recently and would recommend it as a base for day trips to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Ettal, Oberammergau, and the nearby castles of King Ludwig. We arrived just in time for afternoon coffee and cake, which was a very nice treat after a day on the road. Our room was on the first floor on the back side of the main building. It was nice sized and the bathroom was very modern and spotless. Farchant is a small town, so if you hear cow bells in the morning or evening, grab your camera for a photo op, because cows will be going by in front of the guest house to or from their pasture just down the road!

Stayed here for one night while touring the region. Booked room based on other reviews. We were greeted like family upon arrival. We could not have asked for more friendly or accommodating service. Room was good as expected. Breakfast was also very good. Parking was readily available and free. Wireless Internet was available in lobby for free. We had a great experience and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. Don't hesitate - Book this hotel!
