Highly recommended for a family holiday. Our whole stay had been really memorable and other sites for visits are within short hours of driving making it an ideal site for our family to stay. We would like to come back again in future.
As it still appears in your listings for accommodation perhaps it would be a good idea to let people know that the Schloss is closed. It was a time share institution which went bankrupt. Most probably due to bad management and competition from Airbnb offering more economical accommodation in the area.
Lofer Austria Is A 1 Hour & 45 Minute Drive From Munich And Only a 45 Minute Drive To Salzburg, Innsbruck, & Berchtesgaden(Hitler's Eagles Nest) From Lofer. It Is A 2 Hour Drive To The Famous Neushwanstein Castle That Walt Disney Got His Idea For Disneyland. I Suggest Spending The Night In Ruette Or Fussen Near The Castle. On The Way Back To Lofer Ask For Directions For A Short Cut To Garmich And Continue On To Tour The Famous Ettal Abby. Google Schloss Grubhof A Castle Built In 1325 For A Bavarian King. It's Quite Magnificient. I Suggest Going In Late Sept. To Attend The Ocktoberfest. Clicked Sept.2016 Trip Taken In Sept. 2006
First off, I enjoyed my stay at Schloss Grubhof. I read the negative reviews and chose to ignore them and make my own mind up. Some of my comments will be negative as there are several areas that I believe need to be addressed but overall, I have a good impression of SG. I would happily stay there again.
The hotel and surrounds are beautiful, as are the views from most, if not all, rooms.
The manager, Karin, comes in for a fair bit of criticism. I found her to be polite, friendly and helpful (within her capabilities as she is only the manager, I believe). You have to have been in the position of being at the beck and call of unreasonable requests to appreciate her position. Having said that, if customer service isn't your passion, maybe it's time to get out.
If it is to be called a resort, it needs laundry facilities, better kitchen facilities and more direct reception access. Such a limited check-in period is unreasonable to say the least.
Time-restricted WiFi is a nonsense in 2015, as is public are access only. Overall the place is immaculately clean but is badly in need of maintenance (window operation, paintwork, furniture).
The restaurant in the campgrounds is excellent, as is one nearby (walking distance) in Wildmoos, across the road. There is a free bus shuttle into Lofer for skiers and a small supermarket a short walk towards Lofer.
