I have visited this hotel more than twenty times since 1986 and their standards of excellence and superior service have remained exceedingly high over the period. This hotel is tastefully decorated and the restaurant menu is second to none. Admittedly, the rooms and restaurant are not inexpensive, but a visit to this beautiful location should be on everyone's "bucket list"!

It's difficult to say what is better -- the surroundings or the staff at the hotel itself. Nothing could be too much trouble for them, they are always so helpful. And we loved the food at Taverna -- how very creative it is! The hotel has its 'old times' charm, so don't expect a very modern place, although all modern...

My wife and I have been staying at this wonderful hotel since the late 1990s. We used to bring our children and stay in one of the family suites. With breakfast and dinner included in the room rate, we find this highly rated hotel to be a real bargain. In July, 2013, we stayed for three nights while touring France,...

We are not big city people, so this peaceful, beautiful setting on the Eibsee (a private lake) is perfect. Add great views from your room of the lake and the Zugspitze Mountain (highest in Germany), Oh, and fantastic food. Definitely take half pension here. Breakfast are very big with lots of choices. Rooms are spacious with balconies that have great...

Hard review to write as when you look at the website the hotel looks 5 stars and amazing .... and if you look at the amazing lake and mountains surrounding the hotel it really is ..... but the hotel itself is old and tired .... perfect as a ski resort not as much as a romantic propriety.

This hotel is simply fantastic. We had a beautiful room with a lake view and balcony. The staff is simply wonderful. The Zugspitze cable is just meters away from the hotel. The staff truly wants to please you. It was my wife's birthday and we had dinner at the restaurant and they provided us with a small cake. The views...

We stayed here for 7 nights on a half board basis in July 2014. Not being very fluent German speakers we were a bit concerned we might have difficulties with menus etc. but we need not have worried.

My husband and I stayed here 37 years ago when it was a Holiday Inn. It was wonderful then...but now it is spectacular. It is on one of the most beautiful lakes in Bavaria, Eibsee, that is at the foot of the Zugspitz, the highest mountain in Germany. The rooms are clean and the views are inspiring. Sitting on the...

I was super excited to stay here, as the website showed the hotel as a beautiful resort hotel. Unfortunately it looks like it hasn't been updated in 30 years. Very tired and gloomy facilities. The furniture in the lobby looked like old dumpy furniture one would put in a basement. The fitness room was a joke, dark and dreary, which...
