Very clean

4.8 on August 04, 2016

I stayed for 6 nights there in June 2016. It is very clean. The services is outstanding. The owner/family bend backwards to accommodate your needs and wishes. Breakfast is soooooo good and more then you can eat. You can make your own sandwich to take it with you for the day. There is wrap in paper and little plastic bags. I recommend this place highly if you like to stay in a typical German style country bed and breakfast. Ruth Martin, Aptos/CA

4.8 on September 01, 2015

We stayed 4 nights at the Guesthouse Gerold and we can truly recommend this B&B. Andrea and her family did everything possible to make our stay a very special holiday. The accomodation is clean and comfortable with lots os storage. We a looking forward to come back on our next Europe holiday.

Pension extrêmement agréable

4.4 on August 25, 2015

Pension très agréable, idéalement située en Bavière du Sud, non loin des châteaux de Louis II, de la chaîne des Alpes. Münich très facilement accessible en train depuis Murnau, nombreuses randonnées à faire dans les environs. Accueil très sympathique, petits-déjeuners copieux, bref notre séjour fin juin a été une semaine de pur bonheur.

Genial !

4.8 on August 24, 2015

Una pensión super linda. Muy buen compromiso precio-calidad y servicio. Dormitorios limpios, buena ubicaión y la familia muy atenta. Desayuno fresco y abundante. Cuando llegamos, quien nos recibió fue la abuelita que no hablaba inglés, felizmente estabamos con mi hermano que hablaba un poco de alemán. En la noche cuando llegó Andreas, la dueña del hostal, fue a preguntarnos a nuestro cuarto si todo estaba bien. Muy amable durante toda nuestra estadía. Si regresamos algún día, nos quedaremos en esta misma pensión.

Exceptional Service

5 on August 02, 2015

We stayed for two nights. The beds were incredibly comfortable: the rooms clean and nicely furnished. Andrea, the hostess, went above and beyond to help us out with any questions we had. We would definitely return, and recommend to our friends.

a real wonderful place

5 on October 15, 2014

We stayed 5 days in Guesthouse Gerold, Andrea did everything they could to make us feel easy, they gave us kindly help to make our trip wonderful. It is convenient to come to their house by public traffic, the room is very clean and comfortable, including an independent chicken , bathroom and a balcony. the breakfast includes milk, Bread, coffee, eggs. Fruits and many other things, that make our breakfast a real enjoyment. We are satisfied with everything about this stay and we would not be hesitate to come back to Guesthouse Gerold if we return to southern Bavaria in the future, and we strongly recommend Guesthouse Gerold to others¿

exceptionnel comme d'habitude!

5 on August 15, 2014

Troisième séjour dans la charmante pension de Madame Gerold. Toute la famille est toujours aussi sympathique et serviable. Les prix sont raisonnables, le petit déjeuner bon, et très copieux. Nous avons deux petites filles et avons bien profité de nouveau des parcs, jardins, châteaux, lacs, fêtes locales etc... Il y a tant de choses à faire! C'est vraiment un point stratégique pour découvrir la région de Kandinsky et du groupe "Der Blaue Reiter" et visiter les châteaux de Louis II de Bavière. Cette année j'ai testé le bain de boue au "Kurbad Sanitas", expérience étonnante et relaxante. La cure est recommandée pour les femmes désirant avoir des enfants. Nous avons hâte de revenir à Bad Kohlgrub, chez Madame Gerold! Sa fille Andrea, son mari et son frère parlent parfaitement anglais. Sophie et Pascal. Lille, France.

exelent hosts

A comfortable home away fromhome!

5 on October 18, 2013

We spent a week in Guesthouse Gerold and could not have been more pleased. Helena and Andrea were such wonderful hosts. They went out of their way to make us feel at home. Helena greeted us cheerfully each morning and was eager to answer our questions. Each morning we had a delicious German style breakfast with fresh rolls, assortment of sausage and cheese, and delicious marmalade. Cereals, yogurt, and juice were also available. The coffee was delicious as well. Our rooms were very clean with fresh linens and towels. We would definitely return to Guesthouse Gerold in the charming village of Bad Kohlgrub whenever we return to southern Bavaria in the future.

A Great Guesthouse

4.8 on October 05, 2013

Drove up from Italy for a couple of days rest and was very please with the Guesthouse and the service given by Helena and Andrea. Could not have found a better place to stay. I was give the a larger room the one top left in photo display at no additional charge. Frau Helena is a wonderful warm person full of life and most helpful in every way. If they would serve a light dinner the place would be fantastic. With the balcony door open the traffic noise can get a little loud, just close the door and you will be fine Thank

This is what hospitality is about - wish we could stay longer

5 on September 20, 2013

We stayed here for two nights. It is a charming cozy place and the host Helena is a very warm pleasant person. There's a kitchennet if you want to make simple meals yourself. There are restaurants close by. Helena offers great breakfasts with fresh cold cuts and breads. She asked us to make sandwiches and take them for snack.

Fantastic Guesthouse

Guesthouse Gerod is rated above 5 star standard. Many thanks to Madam for her kind and patient hospitality during my stay. Mandy from Singapore

nice family run b&b

4.6 on August 18, 2013

We stayed here mid August 2013, we stayed for 3 nights to do some sightseeing in the area, the staff are very friendly and helpfull, the rooms are very clean and comfortable, breakfast was very good and the service was excellent, we will definitely visit again


5 on July 31, 2013

Nous sommes restés 10 jours dans ce fabuleux appartement de vacances à Bad Kohlgrub, situé au centre de merveilleux châteaux, parcs, lacs, monastères, forêts et montagnes. Nous étions déjà venus l'année dernière avec notre petite fille, et avions beaucoup apprécié, comme cette année, la gentillesse, la disponibilté de Madame Gerold et de sa fille Andrea. Les chambres sont très propres, le petit déjeuner est très copieux. Les prix sont plus que raisonnables. Nous avons passé de merveilleuses vacances ! Sophie Cailleux, Lille, France.

Guesthouse Gerold - best vaction place

5 on July 25, 2013

Just want to share my experience here. My husband and I (USA) stayed at Gerold Guesthouse for a week. We had absolutely gorgeous time there. The personnel is amazing. Room was super cozy and clean and authentically decorated which of course added to our impression. Breakfast was very good and really filling. And what is the most important for me - the atmosphere was very warm and hospitable. I really loved that place and I can definitely recommend it to others.

Unforgettable experience

4.4 on June 23, 2013

A charming guesthouse in an idyllic little village. The Gerold family was warm and welcoming. The rooms were spacious and comfortable- The lack of air conditioning was the only issue disturbing our stay during an exeptional heatwave passing through southern Germany. The rooms were kept very clean at all times and the owners were very eager to help us find the attractions we were looking for. We would stay at Guesthouse Gerold again anytime, and sincerely recommend it to everyone visiting nearby!


5 on June 05, 2013

Stayed here May/June 2013 and this is fantastic value , first class . Great breakfast , lovely views in a lovely little Bavarian town . Only pity was the weather was against us but didn't stop us getting out and about . Great location for walks in hills and countryside. We didn't drive but buses and traions run fairly regulary and very handily placed fro trips to castles and towns such as Oberammergau , Neuschwanstein , Linderhof and MANY more . Great little family run business/B&B , would recommend to anyone . Jon & Nikki - England

Excellent value and a great personal touch

4.0 on May 23, 2013

The Gerold family was very welcoming and we were definitely glad we chose to stay here. We had chosen the Gästehaus Gerold based primarily on the other reviews and feedback we had had about the place, and all were definitely accurate. It really is an ideal place to be based when exploring the general Garmisch-P. area, and excellent value for the money. Again, the warm welcome and interaction with the Gerold family makes a big difference! A good breakfast, and super comfortable rooms - would definitely stay here again for sure.

Would definitely stay here again!

4.4 on May 19, 2013

My brother and I, both seniors, stayed in 2 single rooms at Guesthouse Gerold for 6 nights in early May 2013. We also saw a couple of the apartment units, which are very roomy and comfortable. Frau Gerold is very kind and accommodating, and her daughter Andrea was very helpful with information. She even directed me to a Birkenstock outlet a few kilometres away, near a neighbouring village! We also lucked out in meeting another frequent guest who is originally from Germany but now lives in Canada, and she told us and showed us a lot about the area. This B&B is so handy to neighbouring villages, as advertised. We had a thoroughly comfortable and pleasant stay here at Guesthouse Gerold.

Excellent country B+B

4.0 on April 18, 2013

A wonderful village location surrounded by open countryside. A great place to relax after spending long days on business in Munich. Only a few minutes walk to DB station with trains to Oberhammergau or Murnau (for Munich). Very friendly and helpful family owners.

Bavarian B & B at its finest!

5 on October 27, 2012

On our recent trip to Bavaria, we planned on a one night's stay at this B & B. We loved it so much that we ended up staying six nights, and making it our vacation home for day trips all over the area. Our hostess, Mrs, Gerold, was divinely accommodating. She is perhaps the epitome of gracious hospitality. Her breakfast food was overwhelming. From the meats and cheeses, to the endess coffee, and special scrambled eggs made to order, we enjoyed every moment of our stay. We will be back for sure.

Outstanding Family Run Inn

5 on September 29, 2012

This B & B is really outstanding. The Gerold family, especially Helena really makes you feel like you are at home. This property is conveniently located near Munich, Garmish, Fussen and many other key tourist destinations. The rooms were clean and the breakfasts were like grandma use to make. We spent four nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The town of Bad Kohlgrub has some really nice restaurants within walking distance of the Inn. My wife and I hope to return to Guesthouse Gerold again someday soon.

Perfect Stay

5 on September 05, 2012

My wife and I enjoyed our stay here. It was the best place we stayed while in Germany. The price was exceptional, especially considering all of the food and the room we had. The family was very nice and more than accomadating. The food was delicious and there was more than could possibly be eaten, even by us Americans. The beds were comfortable and the town was great. We throughly enjoyed our stay here and would love to return, should we ever be lucky enough to go back to Germany.

Great place to stay!

4.2 on August 02, 2012

We enjoyed our stay at the Guesthouse Gerold very much. The charming hostess did her very best to ensure our time there was great. The breakfasts were excellent, the bedrooms very roomy and clean. Overall it was a great place to stay. The location was very good too. Andrea has the most charming personality and her mother was very gracious. I would most certainly recommend this guesthouse. We also enjoyed the very tasty little italian restaurant across the street.

Perfect Stay!

5 on July 11, 2012

My family and I stayed here for two nights in July and we were happy to have found this location. It's an easy 30min drive to Garmisch, 25min to Ettal, and 20min to Schloss Linderhof. The hosts were very friendly, the rooms were clean, and they even provided books in each room with local restaurant recommendations, places to go and various other helpful information. The included breakfast is the standard German sliced meat, cheese, yogurt, bread and juice...a great way to start the day. I would highly recommend this Guesthouse to others!

Un soggiorno da FAVOLA

5 on June 01, 2012

Io e il mio ragazzo abbiamo alloggiato in questo splendido b&b per il periodo tra il 26/05/2012 al 29/05/2012. Appena arrivati ci siamo immersi nel clima campagnolo e tranqiullo della cittadina (davvero rilassante), il posto è splendido, una via di mezzo tra tutte le attrazioni da visitare! L'accoglienza è stata speciale la mamma di Andrea non parla inglese ma si fa capire bene ed è davvero simpatica! La camera era spaziosa e pulita! La colazione abbondate e buona! In più ci sono state fornite molte informazioni sui luoghi da visitare e sui ristoranti migliori dove mangiare! Insomma è andato tutto per il meglio. Ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo. Speriamo di rivederci! Grazie Elisa&Marcello

It is perfect

5 on April 22, 2012

Breakfast is fantastic! Andrea and her mother are lovely! Region is very beautiful! Room is clean and cozy

very nice stay

4.6 on April 18, 2012

We very much enjoyed two nights here in April 2012. The room was very nice, and came equipped with a kitchenette. The family who runs the establishment is very nice and helpful. We would return again if back in the area. Many thanks!

A hidden gem - wonderful get-away place!

5 on April 13, 2012

My husband and I just arrived in Germany and wanted a get-away. Edelweiss Lodge was booked, but I stumbled upon this treasure. The Gerold family is so nice and welcoming. The room was amazing for the price...we couldn't have had as nice a room at the resort. The breakfast was delicious and filling. Also, Frau Gerold encourages you to make sandwiches for lunch from the breakfast leftovers. I hope to stay there again on my next visit to the Bavarian region. Thank you Family Gerold!!

Fantastic little guesthouse and great value for money!

4.8 on April 12, 2012

Rooms are very tidy with simple Bavarian furniture. The owner is super-friendly and helpful and at €22 in the off-season the guesthouse is the best value for money I have ever seen. Fantastic place near Garmisch, highly recommended!

Even better on my second visit!

5 on February 12, 2012

Coming back so soon after my first stay, I was very much looking forward to the quiet beauty of the place, the very pleasant hostess Frau Gerold preparing the delicious breakfast and little trips to be made. The stay exceeded my high expectations ;-) It was great fun. This time my other daughter came along and on the first (snowy) day we dedided not to travel to the Hausberg of Garmisch yet but to take a little walk in the village of Bad Kohlgrub itself. Ha! We discovered that there's a beautiful pathway up to Bad Kohlgrub's own mountain, Hörnle, which has a skilift taking you up to the 1.400m summit with a phenomenal view, on clear days. There's a little ski school even. Much less crowded that the one at Garmisch. A restaurant on the summit too with warm food and warm drinks (try the hot "ski wasser", a hot sweet lemon drink). We travelled down on sleds along a pathway for sledding. WOW. This went VERY fast. My Garmin outdoors GPS showed we went almost 50 km/h ;-) When I lost my GPS (it fell from the ski lift) and I raced down to search for it, someone had found it and it was waiting at the ticket office of the ski lift operator. Lovely honest people there! Almost every evening we had dinner at the Heimgarten restaurant. Delicious Bavarian dishes, very affordable, great service. In the busier season it's best to make reservations. The village has a well stocked supermarket, a greengrocer and a little delicatessen store with lots of goodies so you can also use one of the rooms with a kitchen at the Gaestehaus to cook your own meals (pots, pans, dishes and cutlery available). With the fantastic mountain on a short walk, the Heimgarten a few steps away, the fresh coffee & home baked cake cafe across the street, a sled rental next door to it and the Gerold family taking care of your stay, it's the best value-for-money I found so far in such a feature-rich region. I will be back ;-)

Weekend Stay

4.6 on January 23, 2012

We selected this Guesthouse based on location and price as a place to stay for our 25th anniversary. This place is absolutely great. From the friendly reception to the location of the Guesthouse and its proximity to Garmisch to the charm of Bad Kohlgrub, Guesthouse Gerold exceeded all of our expectations for this, our first time stay in a bed and breakfast ever. The room, attached kitchenette, and bathroom were more than adequate for our needs and the innkeeper went out of her way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Based on our treatment, we will be utilizing this Guesthouse for many more trips to Bavaria during our five-year stay here in Germany.

Lovely and excellent

4.8 on January 12, 2012

Such a beautiful and tidy place. We felt home instantly and the extremely kind lady of the house made sure our rooms were cleaned while we enjoyed the excellent breakfast, such an abundance of great fresh food. We could take some along for lunch even which often saved our day while on a little trip. For the boys, the snowy Hausberg mountain was a short drive by car. We even went ice skating, great fun. There's a wonderful exquizite dining place nearby, don't forget the lady directions there. Very affordable, great food, also for vegetarians. I just got back and have made reservations for my next stay ;-)

A Wonderful Experience

4.8 on October 14, 2011

My family and I stayed for three nights and had a wonderful time. We arrived rather late after being stuck in traffic for several hours. Andrea met us with a smile and showed us to our rooms. Breakfast was good each morning with a variety of meats, breads, yogurt, and juice/coffee. The location is good with easy drives to all of the local sites. We will certainly plan on staying here again when we travel down toward Garmish!

On our way to Italy

4.0 on September 22, 2011

We only stayed one night while driving through to Italy. A friendly wellcome when we arrived. The room was huge en very nice. We had a good night sleep in a wonderful bed. The next morning breakfast was served in the breakfastroom. And all this for a friendly price. It was a good start of our vacation.

My best experience yet in this area.

5 on September 18, 2011

We make trips regularly to this area near Garmisch, and this B&B is the best we've experienced. It was not only a great value, but the room was beyond our expectations. It was very clean and tidy, the owners are extremely friendly and helpful, and the service was outstanding. We needed to arrange for an early breakfast one morning; not only was the breakfast provided in our room, but the table was cozily set and everything was provided for us. It was like having family take care of us! It's only a 30 minute drive to Garmisch, where the prices are much more expensive. We definitely plan to visit again!

Great B&B

4.2 on July 26, 2011

We arrived later then we thought we would. The owner doesn't speak English but her daughter and son do! Her daughter met us at the door and showed us to our rooms. We had reserved 2 single rooms and a double. It was a very quiet location, we could hear a fountain from across the street. We were pleasantly surprised with the guest house being it did not have many reviews. We will definitely stay there again. The breakfast was great and everyday they offered for us to take our leftover breads with us for a snack. Don't miss out on this bed and breakfast!

Simplay amazing!

5 on July 24, 2011

Guesthouse Gerold is THE place to stay if you're going to be anywhere in Bavaria! The owner and her family were incredibly friendly, hospitable, and welcoming. The rooms and bathrooms are outstandingly clean, cozy and well furnished. Daily included breakfasts were really delicious, and included more food than I could eat in one sitting. The owner also tried to send us off with sandwiches each day. I definitely enjoyed my two night stay at this guesthouse, and will definitely come back next time in the area. Don't miss out on this fantastic guesthouse for a fantastic price!!

Without a doubt, I will return

4.0 on July 24, 2011

My friend and I spent the weekend at Guesthouse Gerold. We were absolutely delighted! Our rooms were large, warmly furnished and included integral baths. Breakfast was more than ample. I couldn't ask for anything more. The location was extremely central and allowed for easy travel to all of the local sites. I travel quite a bit and found this to be one of the best B&Bs where I've had the pleasure to stay.

Fantastic Find

3.8 on September 05, 2010

My family was treated like royalty the Gerold Family Bed and Bike guest house! The owner personally walked through town to find us and welcome us. She personally arranged our bike rentals and discussed the best routes for the kids. Quiet rooms with the sound of a fountain outside our window. Central to so much to do in the Summer - but we are also considering a ski trip this winter! Excellent service and great memories!
