    • Great Hotel, Terrible Restaurant

      Reviewed 10 September 2019

      We stayed here in August with our six year old son. The hotel itself was quite nice, if dated. A typical quaint Bavarian hotel. The elevator was ancient, I suspect five or six decades old, so take the stairs. The shower in the room is a disaster, with only a partial wall that doesn't keep water off of the floor. Beyond that though, the hotel was very nice in terms of accommodations. The beds were good and the room was a reasonable size with good views of the mountain (choose the mountain side). The location, which is on a side street from the main road, is quiet and relaxing with lots of opportunities to explore. The outdoor chess set was a hit with my son. The pool and spa area was excellent but the pool is not suited for young children as there is no shallow end. The depth was between 1.5 and 3 metres, so you need to know how to swim. The staff were very friendly and helpful and knowledgeable. I would have given an excellent rating for the hotel if it were not for one thing: the restaurant. We had the halbpenzion (breakfast and supper meals included in the price). The breakfasts were fine but the suppers were simple unacceptable. The service was fine and prompt but the portion size and food quality were laughable. The first evening, we chose the fish and were served an incredibly tiny portion of local fish, which had been broiled to death and coated in rock salt. The zuchinni that were served with it were horribly oversalted and the lemon risotto tasted as though it were sprayed with lemon table polish. The whole meal was almost inedible. The spatzle that my son ate were like glue. On the second night, we tried other dishes and the portions were again extremely small. The cook on the food was better than before but two thirds of the plate were empty. The veggies consisted of five little snow peas. The starch was three fingerling potatoes. You could really tell that they were far more concerned with profit than they were about properly serving their guests. If I ever stay there again, I would not take a meal, apart from breakfast, in the restaurant. Better to walk to a standalone restaurant in the town.

    • Bavarian Charm at its Best

      Reviewed 04 May 2019

      We just got back from a 2 week trip in Germany/Austria and this charming Inn really left a mark of happiness in our hearts and a smile on our faces. We only stayed 2 nights here as we had a goal to visit the "Top of Germany" on Zugspitze peak. We had 3 rooms between 4 travelers and all were in agreement that this Inn was a perfect choice for us in the darling village of Grainau. We considered several neighboring cities, but were very glad we chose the Alpenhof in Grainau. From the moment we walked in at reception to the time we departed, the sincere, wonderful service was taken note of. The Inn has the most beautiful grounds and stunning view of Zugspitze mountain range. I urge my fellow travelers to absolutely get the Mountain View! It was well worth an upgrade. Our rooms were on the second floor and all had a wonderful view. The room is definitely styled in a classic Bavarian decor. Some may say a little dated, but we wouldn't have changed a thing inside the room. The room boasts a nice little sitting area and mini fridge with ample refreshments. There were outside covered patios for each room that allow you to soak in the views and watch the many melodious birds there, namely the Black Birds who are very similar to American Robins. We enjoyed that as bird lovers! The only thing we did not like about one of our rooms was the step in shower/tub combo with accordion doors. Try to get a walk in shower if possible, unless you have little ones who need a tub. The room key is very heavy (so you don't lose it) but also the opening and locking the door is a small chore. Very minor annoyance I guess you can say, for everything else makes up for it. If you are traveling with pets, I did notice several dogs here. One couple ate breakfast in a separate dining area with their dog on a leash. Also, we were there during spring weather, so it was in the 50's. Even in cold weather we prefer a room with cool air at night, so we just opened a window and it was very comfortable. There is no A/C that I could notice, so in the summer it could possibly be a bit warm if the weather heated up. I'm sure they have portable fans. I'm pretty sure it stays cool at night in this mountainous region. All of the staff were very helpful in explaining the hotel features, the attractions, etc. We ended up buying the Zugspitz card pass for train/cable car. It was $49 euros for each of us and of course was worth it. The Inn is walking distance to the train that starts your journey to the Top of Germany. We loved, loved, loved the breakfast in the morning. It was charming, delicious and the service was warm and friendly. As another reviewer noted, this place in frozen in time, but in a good way. We will always remember our short but sweet stay here! Hope to see you again someday, Alpenhof!

    • Frozen In Time In A Good Way

      Reviewed 07 October 2018

      Theres nothing modern about this old hotel no coffeemaker in the room, no magnetic key card door lock but thats a large part of its charm. People who stayed here in 1955 probably had very much the same experience that we did. And a good experience it was! The location, at the foot of the Zugspitz is spectacular, the breakfast buffet is absolutely comprehensive, and its just a short walk to the fine restaurants of Grainau. In a lovely touch, upon departure, the hotel manager personally presented us with a jar of local fruit preserves as a token of his appreciation. Old world charm, for sure!

    • Wonderful Bavarian Retreat

      Reviewed 02 October 2018

      This is a superb hotel in enchanting Grainau just outside Garmisch. Lovely rooms, superb service, good restaurant, leisure center and good size indoor pool, lovely gardens, short walk from cog wheel train up to Zugspitze, all at reasonable prices. Great place to spend a few days in lovely upper Bavaria with the famous fairy castles and Oberammergau nearby. Great walks and hikes alll at the door step.Highly recommended. Our dog, a border collie, loved it as well.

    • A relaxing alpine break in family run Hotel

      Reviewed 25 August 2018

      We had booked an as described "Comfort Double Room with Mountain View". It was an En-Suite room with balcony, with an open plan Bedroom/Lounge and the views were great, looking out over the gardens, where a clear stream ran through, toward the mountains and the Zugspitz. The Hotel is nicely situated and despite road works nearby was in a quiet location. Free parking at the front, inside swimming pool and Restaurant at the rear although each day and night we ate on the covered terrace - it was sunny and extra hot with temperatures above 30 degrees. The room was, with window/balcony door ajar, airy enough and the room was clean and comfortable. Free WiFi. Although touring, the Hotel was so comfortable and relaxing that we just relaxed most days in the gardens. Menu available in English which was a help, and Benjamin in the Restaurant was a credit to this dog friendly family run Hotel. The site is "on the flat" which, for us, made for easy walking in the surrounding area. When we left the owner presented us with a pot of jam which we are enjoying now at home. All in all, the most relaxing few days of our holiday
