This hotel is located by a small lake in the mountains and is very beautiful. The rooms have a fantastic view and are very well equipped. Overall the hotel facilities were excellent and the spa is fantastic with 3 saunas (all scented) My only remark for this hotel is that the food is very average and should be better given...

This is an ideal location to relax and unwind, right by the lake. There is a gym and a spa and it's also possible to swim in the lake if you are brave! The staff were attentive and friendly , rooms spacious (with balconies overlooking the lake) in either the main building or the second building alongside. Breakfast comprised a...

This is a resort hotel on the bank of the spitzensee. In winter there's skiing and in summer there's hiking, mountain biking and (chilly) swimming. I was here for a business conference but I thought it would be nice for a family vacation. There were families here. Pet friendly. Lots of hot water for shower. Room was good sized but...

We had a great stay at the Arabella hotel. Very nice Service, a great Spa area, a beautiful spot for the guests at the lake and very good food (especially at the Italian restaurant). Altogether it was excellent. There is improvement in the room design and the breakfast, though.

I spent one night at the Arabella hotel for a business meeting. The place is really nice, close to a lake in the Bavarese alps. The hotel is nice, with some interesting services like a spa and a good restaurant. Rooms are on the average of this hotel's level: if you look for luxury rooms or hi-tech, this is not...

Dear Disgruntled Guest We would like to apologize for the disappointment you experienced during your stay with us.
