We were in the guesthouse, not in the hotel. The rooms are basic, with a comfy bed and a small bathroom. We had a bug window with views of the landscape. The corridors are a bit old-fanshioned and the room sometimes missed a but of flare. The hotel has a nice restaurant and a huge room where they offer a...

We stayed three nights and enjoyed each one of it! The room was a standard with monastery/valley views, very nice! There was nothing to complain about the room, if it were marked as a bed and breakfast. It was approx. 16 m2 with a tiny hallway and a lavatory with shower. I would not call it a bathroom as it...

Arrival We arrived late after the front desk closed. They placed signs welcoming me and indicating that they left my key in a safe. Staff The establishment was kept very well and clean. The staff was incredibly tentative and nice. View The view was just wonderful! Our room overlooked the abbey. Breakfast Good breakfast. Large tea selection. Cons My only...

What a great find. Start with the location. It overlooks the Ettal abbey, and is set on a hill top. Perfect location for all sorts of day trips, like Lindenhof Palace, Neuschwanstein, Garmisch, even Innsbruck. Oberrammergau is less than 10 minutes away. The hotel is very clean, and well kept. The provided breakfast was a great start to the day....

No, really, this was truly a delightful experience. We read an on line blog about the area and totally randomly ended up in the EXACT same hotel they'd used, which we only worked out after we arrived! Thank you "Bruised Passports"! Anyway, we'd just had a fairly big day and arrived at a very reasonably priced hotel to be met...

We stayed here whilst driving the German alpenstrasse , perfect location on the hillside over looking the splendid Ettal Abbey. Excellent service, room and wifi. Beautiful location to eat in the evening and very reasonable. Would def recommend. Easy access to surrounding areas and the Abbey is def worth a visit. The little cafe at the bottom of the road...

Lovely friendly hotel nestled on the hillside above the village. Beautiful view of the monastery from the balcony, very quiet and peaceful just the tinkling of the sheep bells at night. Staff very friendly and food very good. Very close to Oberammergau and other attractions.

We stayed in the guest house. Views from the seating area are beautiful and peaceful, it is a short 5 minutes walk up away from the village center. We ate there a couple of nights and the food was very good and the service good. The breakfast was great, plenty of choice and relaxed. Room in the guest house was...

Just stayed here for 2 nights with a friend whilst travelling through Bavaria. It sat uphill with a view of ettal and the surrounding mountains. There was an outside seating area where you could have breakfast or lunch however we didn't have the breakfast whilst there which was a shame because it was included in the price. We ate lunch...

The staff were very friendly and helpful on checking in, out and on enquiries. There are great views of the monastery from the terrace, and the food is good. The hotel rooms and corridors are dated, but are very clean
