    Small town B&B - pleasant

    Nice B&B that has ample parking and is only a short walk from restaurants, brewery and distillery in the local monastery. The innkeeper is pleasant, but struggles with English language. With our minimal German language skills, we worked things out. Hearty breakfast. Slept well with windows open. Farmer did his mowing in adjacent field beginning before 7:30 AM.

  • 6.0.Good


    Das Zimmer war in Ordnung. Wir wurden jedoch sehr sehr unfreundlich vom Eigentümer begrüßt. Jedes Mal wenn wir ihm über den Weg gelaufen sind, hat er uns erklärt dass er keine Touristen mag oder doofe Kommentare abgegeben (z.B. dass seiner Meinung nach Frauen nicht Autofahren können). Absolut unprofessionell! Im Zimmer gab es keine Seife, in der Toilette keinen Mülleimer und keine komplett abdunkelnden Vorhänge (und das im EG). Mit wenig Aufwand könnte man das Zimmer viel besser machen. Einfaches Frühstück gab es nur von 8 bis 9 Uhr. Wir würden hier nicht nochmal übernachten.

    schönes Gebäude aber direkt an der Hauptstraße

    Als wir ankamen, wusste man trotz Buchungsbetätigung erst mal nichts von uns. Wir bekamen zum Glück das letzte freie Zimmer. Für den Preis etwas arg veraltet. Die Matratzen waren sehr weich, was wir beide am morgen spürten. Das Bad war allerdings relativ neu gemacht. Desinfektionsspender usw. waren leider nicht anzutreffen.

    Wir kommen gerne wieder.

    Gute Lage, guter Service, Zimmeraufteilung war großzügig, sehr schöner Blick vom Balkon auf die Berge. Uns hat besonders die Freundlichkeit der Mitarbeiter beeindruckt.

    Sehr schöne Unterkunft neben dem Kloster Ettal

    Direkt am Kloster Ettal gelegene und in unseren Zimmern mit modernsten Bädern ausgestattete Unterkunft. Alles war sehr sauber: Das Frühstück rwar reichhaltig. In manchen Bereichen ist das Haus wegen der Holzbalkendecken etwas hellhörig. Ab 19:30 Uhr war aber alles während unserer Übernachtung sehr ruhig. Dass wir nur eine Nacht dort waren, schien jedoch nicht gerne gesehen zu werden. Das WLAN hat nicht immer funktioniert.

    Ideale Unterkunft für Übernachtungen auf dem Weg nach oder aus Richtung Süden, aber auch als Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen in den Bergen oder Besichtigung Zugspitze u.a.. Verkehrsgünstig gelegen, tolle Umgebung, sehr hilfreiches und freundliches Personal. Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis sehr gut. Klare Empfehlung!
