We stayed here for just one night in November. It's beautiful scenery with the gorgeous lake view. The staff was very friendly and we had a very positive experience in the bar and at the restaurant. Just a few issues and things that made me give this place 3 stars instead of 4. The spa was very nice and pleasant...

This was our third time in 4 years staying here. The staff is fluent in English and very courteous. The views are beautiful and there are so many walking paths around the property. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. Breakfast buffet is one of the best we've had in Europe.

There are few hotels that I look forward to more than the Riessersee Hotel Resort. I say this because every time I'm there, some marvelous event always takes place.

Dear guest, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that our decor did not meet your taste. For your next stay we recommend the suites at the lake house which are furbished much brighter and have large window fronts. We think you might like this style more.

We really enjoyed our time here. The variety at the breakfast buffet was tremendous, and the pool and saunas were a great way to end the day. The service was friendly and helpful in dealing with a piece of luggage that our airline lost. The room was bright, roomy and clean.
