“Great Hosts and Views”
Reviewed 11 August 2012

Gary and Evelyn were great hosts and Haus Karl Ruh offers great views of the surrounding mountains. I would rate our room on the first floor as average and the breakfast much of the same compared to other B&Bs we have stayed at throughout the Alps of Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. However, the price for our room was very reasonable. Ehrwald in general is very relaxing and a welcome change of pace compared to Garmisch, but Garmisch is a quick drive away. There's so much to do and see in the Zugspitze area and Ehrwald shouldn't be overlooked as a place to base your adventures. Overall, I rate Haus Karl Ruh 4 out of 5 because of the hosts, view, and Ehrwald.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay in Haus Karl's Ruh!

We are pleased that you found our rates very reasonable but a little disappointed that you felt our rooms and our breakfast were just average. We strive to ensure that all our rooms are of the highest standard in terms of cleanliness and comfort and also that they are a little bit different to the traditional guest house in our area, and this is also our aim with the continental breakfast that we serve.

Ehrwald is indeed a beautiful village in a lovely location and as you and other guests have noted there is much to do in our region and it is a great base for travelling further afield.

We hope you will visit us again in the future,
Best wishes
Gary and Evelyn

We ordered this guesthouse for two nights but we stayed one night more. Gary & Evelin were so kind and helped us very patiently to organize our trip. We realy felt at home. The rooms were very convenient big and clean. The breakfast was very good. We recommend to everyone who travel in Tirol to be in this guesthouse. There are many options of traveling from it.
We all thanks to our lovely hosts.

Dear Batia,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us!

It was lovely to meet you and your friends and a pleasure to be able to give you some help with excursions during your stay. You quite rightly point out that Ehrwald is very centrally located and a great base for visiting many places both in Austria and nearby Gemany, and we consider ourselves to be a viable and more affordable alternative to Garmisch.

We hope you enjoyed the remainder of your holiday in Austria.

Best wishes
Evelyn and Gary

Unfortunately on this trip, we were just passing through Ehrwald quickly, but we very much enjoyed our all-too-brief stay at Haus Karl's Ruh. I was surprised to be able to get in on short notice with my wife and son, given its high rating on Trip Advisor, but Evelyn was very accommodating (no pun intended). The house was spotless, the room was great, the area was very quiet for sleeping. Evelyn was very friendly and helpful the whole time, recommending us a great restaurant for dinner. I loved the look of the area and would definitely like to go back for longer next time.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay in Haus Karl's Ruh.

Fortunately for us a lot of guests who, like yourselves, are just passing through Ehrwald are so taken with our beautiful location at the foot of the Zugsptize that they do return and stay for longer!

We sincerely hope that you and your family will also return and that if you do so we may welcome you in Haus Karl's Ruh again.

Best Wishes

This was my first time in Austria and could not have chosen a better place. Rooms were spotless, breakfast wholesome and filling, and Evelyn and her family the perfect hosts. Erwald is a delightful place with plenty to do for the outdoor person. Wonderful walks and climbs organised by Robert and Lesley of Alpine Arena who live just across the lane. Maybe my first time, but hopefully not my last.

Room Tip: Balcony looking over the valley of Erwald.

We stayed with Gary and Evelyn for 7 days. We had a great time and we immidiately felt at home! We had two very spacious rooms with a huge balcony. Breakfast was excellent. We had some great laughs with Gary and Evelyn and they also advised us on some good restaurants in town. It is only a 5/10 minutes walk to the centre and the house has a great view at the Zugspitze. We will definitely recommend you to all of our friends and we are coming back next year!

We are glad you enjoyed your first ever stay in a B&B during a skiing holiday and, more importantly, that you felt at home in Haus Karl's Ruh.
We are looking forward to seeing you again next year when we hope you may be able to enjoy the balcony and the views in slightly warmer weather!

It was our first time to stay in a B&B on a skiing holiday and we liked it very much! Gary and Evelyn made us feel right at home. They also helped us with information on the ski-area and the restaurants in the village.
Our room was very cosy and always very clean. We had a beautiful balcony as well, but with outside temperatures below -20°C, we preferred to enjoy our wonderful view from inside our room! The beakfasts were good and complete. It was nice to sit in the guestroom, drink hot coffee (or whatever you prefer), eat breakfast and make plans for the day. You can also hear the plans of the other guests and Gary will give you advise if you want.
I also loved the family dog, Heidi. I miss her already! I told Gary I loved dogs, so he introduced me to her and it was love at first sight!
All these things made it a great experience. We will stay here again next winter!

We had realy a great stay at Karls Ruh, the first week of 2012. De wolcome was worm and we felt very comfortably. The rooms are very clean en the beds are great. Also the location is okay, just à 10 minites walk from the center of Ehrwald. Gary & Evelyn are great people.
We know for sure we'll come back. In winter 2012-2013 and also maybe next summer for a few days. Its was just PERFECT!
