Very friendly staff at reception, main hotel complex up to date. Haus Kampenwand however not up to the standard which could be expected from a 4 star hotel (with room with a broken door lock and wall corners requiring plastering from earlier collisions with luggage). Hotel staff not aware that information materials on the rooms are outdated and still refer to time before renovation (with a traditional Bavarian Zirbelstuben restaurant)
Very well organised hotel. All the staff were exceptionally cheerful and helpful. The hotel had a comfortable, traditional feel (not the bland, modern feel of many city hotels.) We stayed in a balconied appartment with a brand new, well finished shower room. Plenty of choice at breakfast and good optional evening meals.
"Truly Bavarian Hotel with an International Twist"
Hotel Gabrielle combines true Bavarian hospitality with a slightly more international twist to the already excellent Bavarian food following the return of the talented son who has been studying as a chef abroad. The rooms are large with long wooden balcomies or terraces. Without any sense of irony the staff all wear traditional local clothes as do many in the village and there is live unobstusive Bavarian music outside many evenings, including alpine horns and a small ompha band of very talented local youngsters. The professional but friendly manner of the staff infects the guests who all wish eachother good morning at breakfast, which is an excellent cold buffet with local cheeses, meats, jams and cereals.
20 metres from the hotel is the network of walking paths which criss cross the mountains, well sign posted and of all shades of difficulty. We walked up the Hochgern on our first day to discover we'd walked the equivalernt of Snowdon, but with three Inns on the way, it seemed less. On the mountain we were passed by a cyclist with two dogs and a pet pig, called Emma. Buy a Wanderkarte (map) from the Rathaus to help you plan your walking. The hotel lends bikes to help you access all the walks. By car within an hour is Saltzburg, Berchtesgarten, two hours to the amazing GrossGlockner alpine road, with beautiful vilages closer to hand. In the village the famous Apline Gliding School offers joyrides, a one hour motor glider flight through the mountains is awesomwe.

Firstly, the location of this hotel is spectacular. At the end of a 1.2 mile single track road, the hotel is perched high above the local town of Rottau. As such, the views are superb comprising the Chiemsee lake in the distance and the large hills in which the hotel nestles. Our room was very large, extremely clean and had a 20 feet long balcony. So far, so delightful. However, the day we arrived (a Tuesday) we were told the restaurant was closed and there were no bar facilities. After a very lengthy drive, this was disappointing and meant that instead of relaxing for the evening we had to go out to eat. Nowhere in the literature regarding the hotel were limited hours of opening of the restaurant/bar mentioned (unless we are being very dim). The proprietor recommended two restaurants in Rottau, one of which was closed. Are Tuesdays in Bavaria a bad time to attempt to eat? Fortunately, the second restaurant (Restaurant König) was open and we had a very hearty German meal. Incidentally, at the end of the meal we discovered the restaurant did not take cards for payment and the proprietor told us not to worry and to bring the money in the morning! The kindness of strangers - always unexpected and, on this occasion, both welcome and touching.

We only stayed for one night as a stop over to explore bavaria. The owner was friendly however she did not speak much English but I managed to understand with my very basic German. The room was clean and had everything we needed but was quite small. Be warned though that very loud church bells ring early in the morning and frequently.
We ate dinner in the hotel restaurant outside in the garden and the food was the best German food we had on our trip. Breakfast was also good with a nice selection of fruit, bread, meat, cheeses etc. We didnt really have time to explore the village but it looked nice and there seemed to be a few shops near the hotel. there was a free carpark outside

From grassy countryside to glacially-sculpted landscapes, natural beauty abounds in the quiet Upper Bavarian region of Chiemgau. Comprised of four sub-regions, the area is centered by the Chiemsee, Bavaria's largest lake. Pedal down one of the many biking paths, or amble along the hills of Waginger See. The museum in Kirchanschöring offers insight into Bavarian culture and traditions.
