Cosy restaurant with friendly service and great food. If you want to try some traditional food this is the place to go. Outdoor seating is also available, quaint little place with a lovely fountain. I believe you can also rent flats to stay in too.

Lovely place. We had a comfortable top floor room with balcony overlooking the road & nearby pretty town. Plenty of room for all our motorbike luggage, very comfy bed, nice breeze from the balcony door although there was some road noise. Parking for the bikes in a kind of car port was flat & easy. I have food intolerances & Christian provided soya milk as well as gluten free rolls & mini cakes. We were very well looked after & would definitely recommend this place.

The owner greeted us very friendly and showed us up to our room. We got our own parking spot that was reserved for us during the entire stay. The room is basic but clean. We had a room upstairs with a lovely balcony that gave us a view of the main street of the village. The stay was very lovely. We got a tourist pass that gave us discounts for many attractions in the region and some extra information in our own language. Breakfast is good and the hotel is decorated with personal artifacts which gives it just a bit extra. Central location in the village and easy to reach. Definitely a good place to stay!

If you want 5* frills, don't stay here. But if you're looking for a clean, perfectly adequate room at a great price, with breakfast included, this is the one for you. The owner answers emails promptly and booking is simple. The hotel is perfectly situated for the mountains around the Zugspitz and the Eibsee. There are a few bars and restaurants in the village. I sampled several and wasn't disappointed (particularly Chapeau). The breakfast is plentiful and fresh. I have no complaints. I don't know how they do it for the price. If I go back to the area, I will definitely stay here.
