Crowded and over-priced; some buildings nicer than others

Reviewed By emarienyc

The main lodge building has charm, but the satellite building where we stayed did not. There were lines at reception, so it was difficult to get advice on the area; breakfast was crowded, and we had to wait for a table; and the hotel is at least a 20 minute walk from town (meaning you either need to drive for dinner or pay nearly 30 EUR per person for a buffet dinner). We paid 200 euro a night for a room, and the value we got in return did not match this price point. The location near the Hammersklamm hike is convenient, and you can see the mountains from some of the rooms (ours had this view but over a parking lot).

QH Quellenhof Hotel

In Grainau you will find the Hotel Quellenhof Grainau with unobstructed views on the Waxensteine and Germany’s highest mountain, the Zugspitze. With its magnificent, nearly 5,000 square meters of land, the QH Hotel Grainau nestles in the meadows, forests and mountains of the beautiful Werdenfelser country. Pure nature as far as the eye can see! Grainau is, just like Garmisch-Partenkirchen, a climatic health spa town. The two idyllic places are just very few minutes away from each other; they provide both the recreation-seeker as well as the “adventurer” enough opportunities to experience a great holiday. The Hotel Quellenhof in Grainau has an indoor pool, sauna and steam room, jacuzzi and solarium can be used for a small fee. In the summer season we have a lawn and a beer garden with a stunning view of the surrounding mountains.

One night is enough

Reviewed By Marc_and_Kim_Z

Surprised it much to offer for business travelers. They leave at night and back at 0800 long after our departure. The room was huge but lacked a coffee and tea service. They do have a machine downstairs for one euro. The train came by so no need for an alarm for the morning wake up.

One of the best hotels we visited in Germany

Reviewed By Frank G

Excellent, excellent stay ! Great service, fabulous breakfast and dinner (don’t miss this!). Very clean with a spotless spa experience. Two of our days in the region were rained out and we could not have been happier with the days since we took enough time for using the hotel amenities. We definitely will be back.

Very nice place, friendly relaxed atmosphere

Reviewed By Adrian O

Stayed here in march to attend a wedding nearby. The accommodation is actually much better than the website pictures might suggest. so we were pleasantly surprised. The owners are friendly but not "in your face" which makes the stay pleasant and relaxed. Its a 10 minute walk to the village centre and local bus or 15 minutes to the tram, so very handy. I would certainly come back.

Wonderful place to chill

Reviewed By Ming W

Some of the more negative reviews here stemmed from 2020 and 2021, the Covid years. We came here in May 2022, after a renovation. The guestrooms are a bit on the average in terms of aesthetics but the communal spaces are lovely- I really loved the panoramic restaurant with its superb views of the lake and the small but good wellness facilities with wonderful seats for just staring at the lake. The sundeck and the beach were also beautifully maintained. We had three meals here and they were all good. The avocado tempura was a creative take and delicious. I liked it that they try to source things locally- I never knew I could eat salty mountain butter or honey by the spoonfuls! We did the 7 km lakeside walk- what a clean and well-kept track! Kudos to the family that owns the lake. You can go swimming, vertical paddling or boating on the lake, or take the cable car up the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest point. But we were more than happy to relax and do very little. The staff were also friendly and professional. They don’t overstep their boundaries but were confident and good humored, even when they don’t speak German, the local language. HR has certainly done a good job. We would love to come back in autumn when the trees must be turning to red. And oh, I must ask what their brand of shampoo is- such volume after a wash! If you factor in the meals and actually use all the spa facilities and the local transport Ticket with discounts, the deals are reasonable. Except we were happy enough to do nothing except walking. The Eibsee is a dream location in southern Germany.

June 2022 booking cancelled by hotel

Reviewed By S6555WScatherinea

Had a long- standing 2 night booking here for June 2022. A few days ago we received an email (in German to UK guests which was not a helpful start and not impressive for a 5 star hotel in a popular tourist place) which said, 'We have good news and bad news for you. The good news is that we are having a new pool. The bad news is that we will therefore be closed when you are due to come, so you wont be able to stay. We look forward to you staying in the future.' No apology. No expression of regret af the disruption of our plans. No arrangement of alternative accommodation at a similar hotel in Grainau. Appalling customer service. Such an email should never have been sent out. If that is how they treat potential guests then they should not be in the hospitality industry. NB we wrote to express our astonishment at receiving such a rude email but they did not bother to reply.

SPA hotel... without SPA Careful with reservation!!

Reviewed By martab955

I admit that personel is very friendly and the restaurant can impress with menu. Here’s what the two ** are for. However, I need to give a low rate. I came to this hotel solely for one day of SPA treatments (two nights), and during the reservation I was ensured I don’t need to book massages or treatments, I can choose once I’m here. Well, last night i heard there is nothing they can offer me for today! I should have been informed either to book in advance or that the staff will be on holidays. I really didn’t have any other reason or sentiment to be here other than for the treatments. This morning I spent an hour on the phone trying to find other hotels with a day spa which would accept a last- minute customer. No help with booking (i heard from the receptionist that it’s better if i call myself), no alternatives. I asked for a discount and saw only a little smile. Not even a complimentary drink on the house! I’m shocked, I certainly won’t be back and won’t recommend.

My husband and I recently spent 9 days over Christmas and New Year in Grainau at the beautiful hotel laengenfelder hof. The ambience was so cosy and lovely when we arrived on Christmas Day, the room was well heated with a nice electric fireplace and breakfast was really delicious. We also enjoyed our time in the sauna and resting area. Every thing was well thought out and we truly enjoyed and relaxed during our honeymoon. Thank you to Mecki and your team!:)
