Outstanding family retreat

We loved, loved, loved our stay at this charming hotel. The hotel is beautiful and tastefully furnished, the food was delicious. But the best part must have been the service. The staff was extremely attentive and professional, and always ahead a kind word for our children. Our son had an amazing time, he particularly loved the kids club. We definitely hope to come back to this lovely place.

5/5 Excellent

Great hotel with great service

We stayed at Hotel der Bar for 4 nights for a wedding. The hotel staff were very helpful and the hotel was very clean and comfortable. We had friends at different hotels in Ellmau but ours was the nicest of the bunch. We would definitely come back and stay here and would recommend it. We stayed in the junior suite with panoramic views. We would recommend spending a little more for this view....which is spectacular!

Pros: Great views and service. And loved the heated bathroom floors.

Cons: The spa, pool and saunas were all very nice, but in 3 separate areas. Would have been nicer if all 3 were in one location in the hotel

Location: Our friends said the skiing was great. And the village of Ellmau was charming with good food.

You've found a lovely hotel - Hotel Der Bar

My husband, myself and our two boys aged 12 had a fantastic stay at Hotel Der Bar. We have high expectations and although we stay in 4* hotels we often complain if the staff, cleanliness, quality etc. does not meet our high standards. Hotel Der Bar exceeded our expectations. The staff were all friendly and professional and the family/owners all took the time to talk to us throughout our stay to check that we were happy with everything, very unusual and over and above what we are used to. The staff were accommodating and helpful and the gourmet food was delicious, something to suit everyone's palate. Nothing was too much trouble and our children (who can be fussy eaters) were in raptures about the cuisine, as were we. No need to eat anywhere else in Ellmau, great value half board is like full board. We expected a few cakes for the afternoon included in our half board, however there was a mini banquet from 1pm-4pm of salads, soup, curry/chicken/lasagne etc. as well as cakes.Plenty to do in and around the hotel, Ellmau is a lovely unspoilt village. The electric bike shop is a short walk from the hotel, the nearby waterpark which we also walked to was spotlessly clean, not very busy, great value at 21 euro's for the four of us, for the whole day. There's chair lifts and a train you can walk to which takes you up the mountain. We normally like to try different hotels/countries however we would love to go back to Hotel Der Bar, anytime and would highly reccommend it to everyone.

Pros: The friendly,helpful,professional staff. The friendliness and interest from the owners. The cleanliness & efficiency. The delicious cuisine.

Cons: The indoor pool is a little small and dated, but doesn't detract from a wonderful stay. The outdoor pool is large and in a beautiful setting.

Location: Waterpark, e-bikes, mountains, train ride, free bus service, chair lift, few shops, restaurants, all within walking distance.
