Flatters to deceive
Place looks great and was very welcoming but after a day it went downhill. room not cleaned, would not let us get food in the bar area even though others were eating in this area. Breakfast was disorganized., hot water for tea was luke warm - had to ask for it from the kitchen, cooked food on buffet was cold.

Some improvements needed.
We have stayed here five times and love its location and ambience however we see things sadly slipping. No longer the big welcoming log fire in the reception area. Sauna and steamroom closed for renovation (that's ok that it is being renovated but nobody told us this when we booked ). Floating pontoon for drinks and snacks on lake removed. Half board dining one night was simply awful. In fairness, breakfast is first class. Staff are wonderful all areas. Not a lot to get the show back on the road Hotel Riesersee so go for it! .

Great experience
The location is great and the staff was absolutely wonderful. The ladies in the breakfast dining room couldn’t do enough to make sure you were happy with your breakfast. The staff at the front desk were helpful with our requests and helping with our planning for our activities. The hotel had some renovations going on that should make the experience even better. They renovated the sauna and the breakfast dining area. There were repairs being made to one of the elevators that required you to use others, no real problem. Overall a great experience.

Good 6,0
Hotel was located beside a beautiful lake and had a nice view of the mountains nearby. There has to be better soundproofing or at least some staff should keep a lookout for loud guests , especially after 10PM when everyone is trying to get some sleep. While we were staying there, a large group of guests were in front of the hotel, being loud and rowdy all the way till midnight. We could hear them well, even though our windows were tightly closed.

Southern Germany Beauty
Friendly front staff even though we were arriving very late. The breakfast in the morning was amazing with delicious variations of southern German delights.

The hotel was located in the hills above the town and was quiet and beautiful. It had a great spa with a swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, steam room and more.

This was a resort in a beautiful setting within the Alps. This place had the best breakfast buffet ever for us. The small lake was a bit dissappointing--not because of its size but I think because it didn't look clean or inviting. However, on the day that we left (2 night stay) we saw someone cleaning out the muck or whatever it was floating on top of lake.

Nice hotel but not as good as it was 10 years ago!
Revisited this hotel after 10 years absence and although it is a nice hotel in a fantastic setting it was missing the previous ambience and in need of some tlc. The clientele has changed and the spa and pool was being repaired during our visit which was very disappointing considering that was one of the main reasons for booking. All in all a nice hotel but has changed too much to tempt us back.

Great place for stopover
Nice hotel with lots of space and facilities, although in need of some modernisation. Higgins Hill so you will need car or taxi to get into the town.
