We found the Schloss last year and booked to return in May before we even left, and we were not disappointed. The transfer from Innsbruck is much better than from Munich - Innsbruck is a tiny airport and it is much closer - less than 45 minutes. In fact, from leaving our house near Cambridge we were at the hotel...

Worked there as a 'helferinn' in 1986. Had a Fantastic time there, made friends from all over the world. Now, it has a mutch higher standard, butt the surrounding is still stunning. And I am sure they still have the dance evenings and concerts. Great place to stay. Close to Mittenwald and Garmisch Partenkirchen. Hope to return somewhere in the...

This was our third visit to Schloss Elmau. The hotel is around 40 minutes drive from Innsbruck airport. The hotel arranged for a taxi to meet us at the airport. Again, fantastic hospitality from all of the hotel staff, all very helpful and genuinely friendly. Our room was excellent, we were given an upgrade on arrival and a delicious welcome...

We stayed in mid-August.

I highly recommend this gem in the alps for anyone wanting to get away. It is kid-friendly and my husband and I were on our honeymoon but we didn't feel like it was noisy at all. Even though we were told while booking that it was almost full, I felt like we had so much space and private time in...

We flew in after the Berlin Marathon, and had a wonderful stay. The views were lovely, the staff exceptional, and the food was great. Very fancy spa services, every treatment you can think of. Our room was very nice, with a great view of the mountains.

Stayed for a wedding. Hotel hardware is excellent, in particular the spa area and the pools. The landscape is also hard to beat. The service can't keep up with the price tag. The owner walks around without making a friendly face. The cultural programme is extensive, yet politically totally one-sided (as one would expect from a G7 location). Interesting how...

If you want to experience luxury and the outdoors in Europe, this is a great spot. The most obvious starting point for this review is the location of this hotel, which is stunning. In Europe, where so many of us feel continually cramped, this valley on the German / Austrian border is a great relief. The view from our window...
