10/10 Exceptional

Tucked away in Bad Kohlgrub, this hotel is a hidden gem. Reasonably priced, with a ton of amenities. Typical European scheduling at the front desk (i.e. closes at 10pm and there is no night shift). The parking lot is very small (again, typical for Europe) but as we were on motorcycles we had no issues. The on-site restaurant is also very nice, and the food is well above par. Of particular note is that the breakfast in the restaurant is a mix of European-style with some Americanisms thrown in (scrambled eggs, bacon, and sausage were available), which was a pleasant surprise. The entire hotel/restaurant looks like it is kept very clean, or was recently renovated, or both. The outdoor seating area furniture all looked new, and the overall arrangement is conductive to gathering around the table with friends at the end of a long day of vacation activities.

Top class customer service
From the moment you walk into this hotel you are welcomed and treated as valued customers. The welcome from the reception staff was exceptional. The hotel exudes a calming ambiance. The interior decor is wonderfully Bavarian. We thoroughly enjoyed dining in the hotel restaurant. We did find the bedroom rather warm at nightime due to an absence of air conditioning. The spa and wellness facilities are very good. We experienced only the best from all the staff members we encountered during our stay. The customer service is outstanding at this hotel. It is definitely a hotel to which we would wish to return. Finally, the area of Bad Kohlgrub is beautiful and wonderful for hiking/cycling and well worth a visit.

Enjoy the rising Alps
Very nice staff, helpful and friendly. The room was small, but comfortable, clean and cosy. The breakfast was plentiful and food always fresh. I did not try the Spa, but I could see that it is really big, and a variety of offers. I went out hiking all the time. Views are striking and there are plenty of activities. The hotel even offers FOC rental bikes and they have an indoor pool

Did not get to take advantage of spa, deeply regret. Too short of trip. Staff, food, everything was excellent, even though it rained everyday, the gardens and view were still beautiful. Most comfortable bed we had in Germany.

A great experience
Lovely hotel - clean, quaint rooms, nice facilities, good restaurant,absolutely superb staff who give a delightful personal experience. Only place for improvement would be WiFi bandwidth - good signal strength but can be painfully slow

What would you wish more than paradise on earth? A spacious garden to stare at the full moon, fancy sauna spaces to dream away in, a rare jewel of a library to enrich and lift the spirits and a most amazing cuisine to indulge the taste buds. Bad Kohlgrub might not be as well known as Garmish or Oberammergau. Yet with this refugium it becomes a place of peace,and beauty.

4/10 Fair

Keine Empfehlung
Das Zimmer war groß, geräumig, freundlich und im "bayrischen Stil". Jedoch war es sehr hellhörig, man konnte jedes vorbeifahrende Auto hören und auch die Zimmertüren auf dem Flur knarrten und jedes Auf-und Zuschließen war zuhören. Somit kein Hauch von Erholung möglich. Das Frühstücksbuffet war in Ordnung aber leider immer recht vergriffen und nicht schnell nachgefüllt. Der Wellnessbereich (Schwimmbad) ist modern und stilvoll eingerichtet, bietet auf Grund von Corona jedoch nur Platz für 4 Gäste gleichzeitig. Meine Erfahrung mit der Rezeption des Hotels sind leider bedauernswert. Auf Grund von gesundheitlichen Beeinträchtigen musste ich eine Nacht früher abreisen als geplant. Auf meine Nachfrage ob mir diese Nacht kulanter-weiser zurück gebucht werden kann wurde mir entgegnet das dies auf Grund der Richtlinien des Reiseportals (Hotels.com) nicht möglich sei und ich mich direkt an den Veranstalter wenden muss. Gesagt, getan und der Veranstalter war mit der Stornierung einverstanden. Die Servicemitarbeiterin des Reisportals rief beim Hotel an und teilte dies mit. Das Hotel verneinte darauf trotzdem die Stornierung und behauptete immer noch das es nicht an ihnen liege. Kurz um: Das Hotel zeigte keine Kulanz und versuchte es auch noch so aussehen zulassen, als liege die Schuld beim Reiseportal.
