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
