One of my top rated hotels with perfect food, amazing staff, exceptional surroundings! Rooms are perfect, interiors are more than welcoming! Michelin starred (3 stars!!!) restaurant was the best experience ever!

My husband and I traveled to the Althoff Seehotel for a wedding. We found the hotel, its staff and its food and facilities to be of the highest quality. We loved the location and look forward to returning soon to enjoy Lake Tagernsee again.

when we first checked in the room we were given was horrible. We traveled from the U.S. to attend a wedding at your hotel of a German family the the rooms provided for out of town guests were very disappointing. It was on the 1st floor with a view of a wall was the first room. then they showed me a junior sweet which was also looking at the side wall of a builidng section and the odor of the room left me question of it cleanliness. the room smelled of stale body odor. The third room they provided as an "executive suite" to help me feel more invited. It was not a good first impression experience.

This is a truly gracious hotel with a talented, professional and friendly staff. The rooms are lovely and the bathrooms amazing. It's a very special place if you are looking for a calm and relaxing vacation.

We have been there in April for our wedding and have been there several times before. Amazing! Always! We had a Tegernsee Suite with view over the Tegernsee. You can not stay long enough on the terrace to enjoy this view. The treatment was just wow! Nothing to add. Room is specious and warm. You will feel like home once you enter. Cosy and familiar and the perfect place to relax and enjoy for some time. The hotel is very classical and they have renovated the Tegernsee suites and half of the Spa area. The Spa is very nice with a big pool and different saunas. However the floor is full of spots that can not be removed as it belongs to the old part of the former Spa. They built a new tranquility room, library with open fire and tea. Very nice to relax and enjoy life. The hotel is located just in front of tegernsee. So you need to have an glass of champagne and enjoy the view. Fantastico! Lobby area is huge and cosy. Everywhere corners to sit and enjoy. The bar belongs to the lobby area but belongs to a separate section. Also very nice indeed! The Italian restaurant has an amazing chef, Stefano! I love the food! To be honest I do not like the fine dining restaurant with Michelin star and chef Juergens. He thinks he is someone better :)! Breakfast is great! Everything you need and the tables are nice and cosy. It's always nice to sit there and enjoy fresh food. We met the General Manager, Vincent Ludwig, and he is great! Taking care personally and engaging with the guests. He belongs to the hotel like my toe my feet. There is no better place to stay and we will always come back! Thank you!

It is one of the nicest hotel in Rottach-Engren, Germany. Its has a superb view on the lake which makes the atmosphere so relaxing. The hotel service was excellent. The room and bathroom were spacious and clean. It is a five star hotel. I highly recommend this hotel for those visiting this place.

This hotel, new to us, must be in one of the most beautiful situations for a hotel. Completely new to us, as was the immediate area. The drive form Salzburg was fabulous, and the last few miles exceptionally beautiful! What we didn't expect was that the Liverpool Football club were in residence. As we are not football fans, especially my husband, we were rather aghast, however they were incredible well behaved, won the 2 matches they had while we were there and all seemed nice young men. Apart from that, how was the hotel? It would be difficult to find a better location, although we have been to various places which would compete, but it is glorious. Our room was very spacious and well equipped, and an excellent huger veranda, if a little overlooked, and a superb bathroom. The hotel is very spacious with wide balconies overlooking the lake, but they are visible by some of the other balconies, so nude sunbathing is not entirely possible! The hotel has 3 (maybe 4) restaurants, including a 3 Michelin restaurant and an Italian, and some outside eateries. The main standard restaurant was OK, breakfast was not brilliant, the selection was not as good as we have had in other hotels. The hotel is spacious, very very wide corridors, but staff could sharpen up their act somewhat. The carpet in the lower half of the standard restaurant was grubby, as there are seats outside and dirty feet have left their impression. We tried the 3 Michelin restaurant. This is rather stark and dull., lots of space between tables, but not an interior to feel comfortable in. The food was amazing in some respects, i.e. innovative in presentation and stylish, but the food was not, in our opinion, and some others we spoke to, of 3 Michelin standard. The Liverpool football team were extremely well behaved and quiet, and we didn't notice any Wags. There were happy to sign autographs (not for me I might add), and the manager was charming.They also won their matches. Would we go again? Not sure., the area is absolutely fabulous, but there is something a little odd about the place.We suspect it is not easy to recruit and keep staff, as some seemed new and ill informed, and some things took a while to get done properly. We were here for several reasons, one it was on route to our next destination.., two it was a new area to us and 3 Michelin stars!!,Would we go again, not sure, I think I would as it was so beautiful, but not sure about the other half.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Seehotel Ueberfahrt for a friend's wedding that we were attending nearby. Our room (which was upgraded upon our arrival) was spacious and inviting with great attention to detail evident in the amenities and guest comforts provided. The hotel staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating and certainly made us feel very welcome. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a first-class stay on the Tegernsee and plan on return myself in the not too distant future!

What to say? This hotel is amazing!!! Quite possibly the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. It oozes character and luxury and really is the place to stay in rottach egern. Pros : 1.Location is brilliant- located right on the banks of the beautiful lake tegernsee and a short 5 minute walk along the promenade to the town and all the restaurants 2.rooms - they are spectacular!! Beautifully decorated and really cozy. Bed is very comfy and nice duvets. Great size room with nice balcony looking over mountains and pool. Bathroom steals the deal - so luxurious with marble and gold furnishings and as massive bath! Room amenities are awesome - chocolates and water on arrival and bathrobes and slippers in wardrobe. 3. Food - nicest food ever!! Breakfast began with a huge lavish buffet with everything from fresh juices to cereals , fruits, cheeses , cold cuts, fish, hot selection, jams, crepes , eggs and so much more !! We are lunch twice in the lobby bar and it was good , I had a club sandwich which was a little dear but nonetheless delicious and another time the burger which was amazing!! Dinner was so special - with 3 restaurants to choose from ! We ate in the italian and alpine restaurants. They were both so good with extensive menus and top notch service! I had some amazing meals in each restaurant and the service really sealed the deal! Try the scampi in the italian - best scampi ever!!! 4. Service - the service in this hotel was perfect! From the reception staff to the maids it was super for the entire holiday! The bar staff were delightful and so friendly which made it so welcoming . Michael on the door was so friendly and helpful! All door men were excellent!! Restaurant Staff deserve a special mention for their professionalism. The concierge was super too - Lydia ! 5. Facilities- the facilities really set this hotel apart - so much to offer here. The rooms had excellent facilities from huge TVs to wifi , kids amenities, treats on arrival !! The SPA was out of this world - huge clean pool inside with saunas, steam rooms, kids pools, jacuzzis etc and a huge modem gym, Pilates room and even a quiet relaxation room with a water fountain and books! My mother had beauty treatments which she said she loved! The outdoor pool too was lovely and had ample space for relaxation and a welcoming pool and jacuzzi!! The private beach on the lake was very special and we spent a few afternoons here - although the lake was freezing!! Other facilities included a kids room , bikes to rent, a boat trip from the hotel grounds , concierge service! Cons: there isn't many! 1. Service at breakfast lacked on a few mornings - very slow with tea/coffee and no proper management. 2. Bar drinks were slightly overpriced even for this hotels standard. 3. Area around outdoor pool was slightly outdated and grubby - needs a facelift and the gardens behind hotel were not manicured! Also ,bad smell at steps to outdoor pool from spa. Overall we enjoyed an amazing time at this hotel and will definitely be returning in the future!! Thank you Überfahrt!!

We arrived at the hotel and straight away we knew we were going to love it! The location of the hotel is simply stunning right in front of lake tegernsee! We were greeted by a lovely receptionist who bought us to our fabulous rooms (family of 5) from Ireland! Rooms are so clean and beautifully decorated! The breakfasts and dinners (2 meals at the Italian & 1 meal in the main restaurant were perfect)! We loved every member of staff except for one member (a lady with blonde hair and glasses) at breakfast. She wasn't the least bit friendly and you would be afraid to ask her to bring tea/coffee to your table!! Other than that we truly adored the hotel and are already planning our holiday again for next year to the most beautiful place on earth!
