After a Venice it was amazing to be in the snow capped mountains with cool temperatures in early July! Hotel Blaue Gams was quaint and comfortable. It had a very homey atmosphere. The views were awesome! The breakfast was fresh and wonderful. We were there as a family and enjoyed it very much. We took lots of nice pictures of the flowers and scenery there.

Nice B&B wonderful views of snowy mountains in the Bavaria Region, breakfast is ok, the good thing is you get your own pot of coffee which is fresh and hot to warm you up! A littel too far from the Hausburg ski area 20 minutos for a curvy and narrow icy road, other that that is worth the money.

Room Tip: fora a family of three we got a nice apartment even with a balcony!

We lived here one night on our way to Austria. We found the hotel very nice and familiar. We lived in the Gasthouse and the room was as good as we had expected. Clean and what we need. The location is outstanding with a beatyful view over the convent. We like to come back and stay more nights here. The village Ettal seems also very nice.
Only positive comments from us. We loved it.

We stayed at Hotel Blaue Gams overnight while we were in Germany visiting the Christmas Markets.

We had a balcony room and the view was breathtaking, morning and evening. At night you could look down on all the lights and the Abbey. We were even lucky enough to have snow.

There is a walkway that takes you right down to the small village of Ettal, my husband's favorite place in all of Bavaria. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. Part of the charm of Bavaria is staying in places like this and this was one of the best evenings we had during our trip.

They did seem to be a little short staffed, but hey! It's December, not exactly a big time of year for tourism, and the staff there were very pleasant. The breakfast was plentiful with a good selection. We would definitely stay here again. In fact, we would like to bring our daughters back to stay.

A great disappointment. Having read the literature this seemed an ideal place to stay prior to attending the Passion Play. Our room was to the rear with absolutely no view. It was sadly needing upgrading, especially the toilet / shower area.
The food was adequate - just, but of basic quality. Understaffed to give good service to the 48 in our party. Thank goodness we have a sense of humour which allowed us to enjoy the shambles of breakfast.
Hotel staff were more interested in receiving their gratuity than attending to the needs of guests.One night was more than enough!

Staying as part of a pilgrimmage group, we actually found this hotel quite pleasant. Romms were clean and comfortable, food perfectly acceptable although just one very overworked waitress so service did tend to be rather slow. We were made to feel welcome, beautiful views from rooms.

Our visit was for 2 nights. Our room was not cleaned or made up on our middle day. Dinner was good but one waitress had to serve 46 people. Breakfast staff were not very helpful or friendly. Making toast seemed to beyond their capabilities. Maybe language was a problem, more likely too many people for one waitress. Quality of rooms varied within the party. Hotel is on top of a hill. Steps down to village were steep, unsuitable if you have difficulty walking. Reception staff were excellent also cases delivered to rooms.
