“Off the beaten track but close to Berchtesgaden, Salzburg, Munich...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

Over the past 10 years we have stayed here for 3 days every year when I visit Germany with my grandchildren and family. The Dorkens are friendly, helpful hosts. Theyll tell you about great places to eat, where to enjoy spa treatments, etc. Close to Berchtesgaden and less than an hour by bus to Salzburg. The hotel is small but clean and has a pool, balconies, refrigerators, sitting areas, books and magazines and a varied breakfast bar, afternoon coffee or tea. You'll feel at home and pampered here. Even the dog is friendly! Wouldn't stay anywhere else in this beautiful region.

Room Tip: I have had each room, they're all nice.

Had a 2 night stay here whilst visiting untersberg and lake konigsee and it was fantastic. The rooms were beautiful and all had balconies, there's a lovely swimming pool and the owners are incredibly friendly and helpful.

We love to stay at family owned places and Brigitte and Mike have the perfect place. Large double bed room with a kitchenette. Very comfortable! Definitly will stay there again. Breakfast was just what we expected... great. 20 - 30 minutes from Gotchen and Jenner Bahn skiing in Germany and Loper Alm skiing in Austria. A fantastic weekend!!

Room Tip: Basic double was all we had and it was great!

We stayed at the Hotel Johanneshof for 3 nights in July. We wish we could have stayed longer. Next time we will. The Rooms were large, and very clean. The bathrooms were also large and very clean.

Breakfast is something that must be seen to be appreciated.

Bayerisch Gmain is a very quiet and small town. There are two wonderful Gasthauses within easy walking distance (try the Drisleburg). The hotel is tucked away on a quiet street in a residential neighborhood and is a bit tricky to find. Don't worry, you cannot get lost in Bayrish Gmain.

The Dorken family was very friendly, helpful and provided wonderful service.

The only downside was the pool. It was clean but the water was cold but for two teenage boys is was great.

We spent 3 weeks in Germany, Austria and France. This was the highlight of our trip.

We stayed 3 nights at the hotel in July. We chose it on the basis that it was in the right area and because it had a pool and what looked like a pleasant garden to relax in. However, when we go there, we found that the pool was empty, and it had clearly not been used for a long time, and was in a state of disrepair. The garden was completely overgrown. A few sunloungers had been left out, but could not de used as they were covered in green mould, and had not been touched since the winter. As for the other facilities, which it claimed to have there was no sign of a sauna or table tennis.
The location isin the midldle of a new housing estate, rather than in the mountains, which you can't really see, because the trees in the overgrown garden block any views there might be. There are plenty of other places to stay nearby, in much better locations, at much cheaper prices. I would recommend you look elsewhere.
I complained about the lack of facilities when we returned and was offered 2 free nights when we next visit the area, which isn't much use if we not going back!

I had the pleasure of staying seven nights in this hotel and it could not have been better. The room are spacious, very clean and comfortable. The bathrooms are large and very clean. It is within easy driving distance of Salzburg and Munich and all the attractions in that area. But most of all, owners, Michael and Brigitte Dorkin, are so warm and gracious that you cannot help but feel well cared for. And if you are in need of a dog to pet, they even have that!!
