The location is very good, the owner of the hotel is very helpful, attentive and kind. Breakfast is also excellent. It is a pity that the hotel doesn't have internet connection, otherwise it is a perfect hotel for vacation. Nevertheless I am very satisfied with this hotel.

This inn was exactly what we expected it to be, a quiet, no-frills kind of accommodation run by this affable couple. The rainy night me and my son spent in Grainau before a hiking day towards the Zugspitze, felt cozy and homey. Danke Schoen ! P.S. Oh, did I mention that the price was right too ?

Perfectly located for the Zugspitze and surrounding area. There is parking available right outside the hotel. The breakfast was generous and Mr Roetting might tell a few tales from Hamburg where he was a musician when the Beatles were playing daily gigs. My (single) room had a balcony overlooking the mountains and was perfectly clean and adequate for my needs.... More

Great welcome, under cover parking for our motorbikes and a lovely room, which was immaculately clean. Breakfast was enough to keep us going until late lunchtime and the owners are a lovely couple who are incredibly friendly and helpful. So good, we'll be booking it again for this summer I hope! I get to stay in a lot of hotels... More
