“Nice rooms and good location on the lake-side !”
Reviewed 8 December 2009

Perfect located for a longer stay , if you want to visit both , Munich ( S-tramway ) and the Monastery of Andechs . Very nice rooms towards the lake withn a wonderful view ( if no tree in front ... ) , a bit smaller at the back of the building . Restaurant with local food , okay ... but not more . Better get a large beer and a soup or some cold meat platter with bretzels and instead have a good warm lunch during the day in Munich or elswhere . Breakfast okay but kind of unorginized . Good Private Car Parking behind the Hotel . Elevator . Outside seating ( nice but crowded Beergarden ) all day , exept in winter .

Reviewed 5 November 2008

Herrsching is at the terminus of the s-bahn (S5) from Munich and is considered the gateway to traditional Bavaria. A tourist trap which is not quite metropolitan nor quaint town.

The hotel stands on the bank of the Ammersee and the style is very traditional Bavarian, of the type you'd expect further down in the alps. A bit kitsch but not without charm. The restaurant / breakfast room and some of the bedrooms look out over the lake and the view is exceptional. We were given a town-side room for our two night stay because the others were booked up.

The room was quite small and sparse but spotless and comfortable. When we asked about the lack of extra pillows, we were instantly supplied with a handful.

Generally, it is a pleasant hotel, but is let down by the staff. They aren't terrible but have an aloof quality and lack of attentiveness to customer service. It's a busy tourist resort so perhaps they don't have to try too hard.

When sitting down at breakfast, any jobs which needed doing (e.g. clearing and setting several other tables) were done before the guest was attended to. When something ran out (e.g. milk, rolls), it would be replaced politely and with a smile - but when the staff were ready and not before.

After a long walk on a cold night, we returned before 10pm and asked for hot chocolate from the menu. The waiter said with a frown that the kitchen was now closed and this wasn't possible. Surely someone could have boiled a kettle?

These are just a couple of examples of a service which left a cold feeling that the guests were just a part of the production line and would be dealt with accordingly. They didn't go the extra mile - and made it clear they weren't prepared to.

Herrsching is beautiful and the hotel has much to recommend it. If the staff could be trained in customer service (a trip to the Laimer Hof in Munich couldn't hurt), it would be perfect.

Local recommendation: A walk through the forest to the nearby monastery and brewery at Andechs is a must.

Also well worth a visit is the Adria Grill on the banks of the Woerthsee. A beautiful walk there starts at Hechendorferstraße. Go round the back of Rauscherfußweg then cross country through Rausch, Ellwang and Wasach to Schlagenhofen - which is close to the restaurant.

  • Liked — The view over the lake.
  • Disliked — The disinterested and aloof staff.
