“Relaxing pastoral setting, great service, great accomodations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2011

Driving through Bavaria on vacation from the USA; we found this fantastic hotel highly rated on Trip Advisor - what a find. It exceeded our expectations! We appreciated the helpfulness of the English speaking staff, easy check in and check out, and the accomodations were superior - large, well appointed room and bath with a balcony view of the mountains and overlooking the pool. Everything was immaculate. We had 'full board' with dinner and breakfast which were amazing - so well prepared, plentiful, and great variety in a beautiful setting and again everything was fresh, high quality, and immaculate. A special touch was having our very own table reserved for our meals - our name was written on a china placeholder - that was like icing on the cake! We enjoyed the relaxing pace of dinner (not rushed) as we recounted our day of sightseeing and later sat on our balcony enjoying the views and tranquility before bedtime. Fairly expensive lodging but worth every euro! Our only disappointment? Not being able to stay more than one night! We hope to return to Germany and this hotel will be number one on our list!
Thank you to the wonderful staff for our memorable stay! Sorry for the late review; just realized we had forgotten to add it to this site....

We have just returned from Southern Bavaria and stayed at this hotel for one week. We did not have very good weather at all, in fact, only one day when it was 28 deg. We chose the hotel because it had an outdoor pool but actually only used it once as we tended to use the spa pool after all our sightseeing. We were really impressed by the friendliness of the staff the cleanliness of our room and the hotel in general and the 5 course meals were excellent so we ate in the hotel every night. The setting was glorious not far from Berchtesgaden but was a steep walk up the hill if you did not have a car or use the bus. The hotel actually gave us cards for use on the buses so we travelled free on them. My husband and I have stayed in some lovely 5* hotels but I have to say that although this is a 4* superior it was definitely one of the nicest hotels we have stayed in and would not hesitate to go back.

We stayed here 2 nights on our trip through Germany & Italy. Got 2 rooms across the hall from each other since we were traveling with 2 of our kids ( 12 & 9). The kids had a great time at the pool and in the game room. The rooms were very comfortable. The staff spoke English very well and were very helpful with information. The breakfast buffet was excellent with a large variety of food offered. I am a tea drinker and they offered a large selection of teas. Everyone loved the cake buffet in the afternoon. We did not have full board, but if had known how good the dinner was, we would have chosen that. We ate dinner in the restaurant both nights. Food was excellent again. My picky son loved the duck. We visited the salt mines (fun, even though a little touristy) and Lake Konigssee (magnificent).We wished we had planned to stay there longer since the hotel was perfect and there was still so much of the area we wanted to explore. Would love to return. Warning to American families, I was flipping channels on the tv ( I was in withdrawal) and ran across some porn. Not sure if the 12-year-old was paying attention or not. I guess it just added to his "European" experience.

Room Tip: Rooms were very comfortable for 2 people. Not sure about family rooms.

Dear guest,

first of all thank you very much for your great review. We are happy, that you enjoyed your stay with us. We just wanted to update the note with the porn channel: This was a technical defect and there were no movies to see - it "just" was a selection of erotic movies from a pay channel from the local Sky program. However the channel switched (we don't know how) from Sky Sports (what it normally should be) to the selection of pay movies and nobody recognized it and/ or told us. An employee told me some days later, that this channel is running and we of course immediately switched to sports again. So - sorry for this not typically child friendly TV program - it was an "accident".

Looking forward to see you some time again I remain with kind regards

Yours
Stefan Zapletal (owner and manager) & the Alpenhof-team

We stayed in this hotel mid June and I cannot rate this high enough. Location is stunningly beautiful and located a short drive from the musts of the area - namely Foggensee and the Jenner chair lift among many, many others. The rooms are very nicely appointed with traditional furnishings and comfortable beds and linens. We had a Jenner 2 which was very spacious and even had a balcony. The room was spotlessly clean. The dining room had the best breakfast of our entire trip. What a selection of food. We also ate in the dining room for dinner on the night of our arrival and it was very good and reasonably priced for the quality of the food. The most outstanding thing about this hotel, even given the amazing location, was the staff. Management is doing something right here. From the waitress in the restaurant to the front desk clerk to the busboy - it was apparent that the staff truly enjoyed their job. It was a pleasure to stay in this hotel, and I can only hope that one day I will return. One of my new favorites.

My wife and I were extremely pleased with our entire experience at this well-run, fully accessible modern facility spa hotel for our two-night stay in Berchtesgaden for short hikes, sightseeing, and relaxation. The hotel is a short cab ride from the train station. We stayed in the "Schneibstein" double room, which was well-decorated and cozy. Within thirty minutes of our arrival, we enjoyed swimming in the well-designed outdoor swimming pool from which there are some beautiful mountain views. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the the full breakfast, afternoon cake buffet and excellent five-course dinner, given that all were included in the room rate. We were also pleased with the quality of the modern spa facilities, for which guests are provided with bathrobes, towels and slippers in a wicker basket. At the end of our stay, Mr. Zapletal was available and kind enough to drive us to the train station when for some reason the cab which we scheduled for departure (through very helpful staff) did not arrive on time. Based on our experience, we would gladly choose this hotel again for another visit to Berchtesgaden.

Room Tip: For non-car travelers, you may take a short cab ride to the hotel, up the slope from Berchtesgaden.

We stayed at the Alpenhof for 3 nights in early June. The reception staff were very welcoming and friendly. Accommodation wise, our family room was very spacious - we particularly appreciated the curtain which we could pull across to separate the children's sleeping area from ours so that we did not have to turn off the light so early!

Our children loved the freedom of being able to play outside in the playground whilst we finished off dinner in a safe environment and they also loved the Kinderzimmer and table tennis table.

We thought this was a great place to stay for a family break. Lovely views and very friendly. We would definitely recommend this to our friends and family.

As part of our honeymoon we incorporated this hotel into our travels, it is a credit to management and staff in the day to day running of this hotel, it might be four star advertised but we stayed in a five star directly after and it didn't come close too Alpenhof, food,cleanliness, staff,management BRILLIANT. One of if not the best hotels we have stayed in although do not expect it to be lively especially after 10.00 pm this is relaxation at its best
