Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Krun
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 February 2010

Location: Beautiful - in the country amongst rolling hills/mountains (on the edge of the bavarian alps) a few kilometres from Klais & Mittenwald (railway stations) with lovely views from public rooms, bedroom and spa complex. Easily accesible by train from Munich and taxi (13 euros) from Klais. A car would be useful but we were happy for 4 days without a car as hotel leisure facilities excellent and crosscountry skiing & hiking from the door. Surprisingly quiet area (mid february) and appears generally undiscovered by UK visitors.
Rooms: we stayed in the moderm garden rooms. Spacious, attractive and very comfortable (excellent bathroom with double sink and separate btath & shower)
Food: excellent - well above average qualaity, range and presentaion - and good choice for non meat eaters - in bright dining room with stunning views. Excellnet German & Austrian wines (much better than sold in UK!!)
Leisure: Fantastic outdoor poool where in winter you can swim and watch the stars come out. Lots of loungers inside pool/spa complex. Excellent spa facilities but beware that as normal in Austia/Germany clothes not allowed in most of the (mixed) suana. Only sampled on etretament but well above average and good value
The Area: although there are small towns within driving distance (eg Mittenwald) the main reason to come here apart from relaxtion in beautiful surroundings is to get out in the country on your doorstep. We had excellnet cross country skking, hiking (14 kilometres to Mittenwald then taxi back) and also joined in activities provided by the hotel: snow shoeing, nordic walking and an evening walk returnoing through the woods with burning torches.
Staff & Service: very good - many seem to be local and good attention to detail. Many thoughtful touches - nothing ever seemed a bother

Reviewed 28 July 2008

We stayed at the Kranzbach early July. If I remember correctly from what I've read, the castle was build by British artist Mary Portman in the early 20th century. She loved the location and wanted to build the castle as meeting point for artists. Well, today's hotel is rather a meeting point for SPA seekers, who really want to disconnect for a few days. The hotel is far away from the next town and both grounds and SPA are for house guests only. If you are looking for a place where you can hide with a few books and do something for your body, this is the place!

The staff is very friendly and tries hard, not 5 star but above average. Maybe they will get there some time. The morning starts with a nice cold/warm breakfast buffet, for lunch time are soup and salat served both in the castle lounge and the SPA area, afternoon tea with 3 kinds of cake, the highlight was the 4 course dinner-see pic! All food is included (well you couldn't reasonably drive to the next town to find alternative) and beverages are at very moderate prices. It was quite a sport to get attention of the service to order a second glas of wine when dining - but then again the service at breakfast or at the bar were excellent!

There were 3 sports classes to join each day. We hiked one day - the staff provided us with a map and plenty of tips--the beauty of the surroundings is breathtaking. The days we spent at the SPA were fine. But don't expect much from the lady's SPA-it is tiny!! Due to construction work at the car park in front of the house we got upgraded to stay in the modern garden wing for the price of the "Portman" rooms. In the garden rooms you will find an interesting bathroom plan, which I do not find quite practical-and be aware that the bathroom "walls" are glas only, which makes it perfect for lovers but awkward otherwise.

Surprisingly for such a new house was the lousy maintenance of the bathroom equipment (broken toilet seat, broken appliances, broken fuse, broken hairdryer etc.) all in all not a big deal, but still surprising. We did not fuzz about it. What we cared for most was the quietness, peaceful relaxation- that we got plenty of and we will for sure return!

Reviewed 12 September 2007

For almost a decade we've been fans of the young Swiss-Austrian couple who are managing this new hotel and overseeing the restaurant. This time they've got ALMOST all of the pieces right!

The rooms are splendid, the location is unique (NB: the hotel is near Klais/Elmau, about 12 kms from Garmish-Partenkirchen), and the dinners are memorable.

With the exception of a few "slips" (most especially: they need more cleaning staff for those days when there's a large turnover of guests), this is really a 5 star hotel and many of the meals would easily merit at least 2 stars by Michelin's standards or a good 17-18 points on the Gault Millau scale!
