  • We want to acknowledge the Riessersee hotel’s gesture of goodwill. We accidentally booked two different hotels for our recentbvisit to Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the hotel rightly charged us for a no show. We brought our unintentional mistake to the attention of hotel management they were kind enough to consider our request for refund and are in the process of paying us back. This shows how customer-centric the management is and we can only imagine how enjoyable our stay would have been had we gone ahead with our booking. Special thanks to Lisa, who empathised with our situation.
