Pros: Hotel Kaiseralm beautifully located in the Bavarian hills 26 km from Bayreuth, convenient to the Wagner festival (the hotel provides shuttles at 9€ r/t). Across the street is a nature park with sensational hiking trails. I was there in August for the Wagner Festival but the hotel is clearly also set up for winter sports as well. There is a lovely indoor swimming pool and two saunas. The breakfast buffet was extensive and excellent; the food over all in the restaurant and beer garden was delicious, well-prepared, and reasonably priced.
Cons: Plugs to recharge my iPhone were inconveniently placed; in general the decor could be updated; the wifi was iffy and worked best in my bathroom.

Guests can visit the spa to indulge in massages, body wraps, or body scrubs, and regional cuisine is served at Frankenkrone, which is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. An indoor pool and a bar/lounge are other highlights, and rooms at this upscale hotel offer up nice touches like deep soaking tubs and pillow menus.

Enjoy your visit to Bischofsgruen with a stay at Gasthof Deutscher Adler & Hotel Puchtler. Guests indulge in massages, then grab a bite to eat at the restaurant. A bar/lounge and a sauna are other highlights, and rooms offer balconies and flat-screen TVs.

Motorbike fans and hikers can look forward to an extensive network of routes.
Pros: Staff is friendly and willing to help. Breakfast good for the price.
Cons: Wi-Fi very weak and shaky, had to switch to my own mobile hotspot. Bathtub without a shower curtain, but the flooding was not too bad due to very low water pressure (takes some patience to get wet). No possibility to hang/fix the shower head - you hold it or it's wiggling in the bathtub. If the shower issues were fixed (which might be in other rooms), I'd rate the facilities "Okay".
This hotel is beautifully located on a sunny, south-facing slope of Bischofsgrün, and enjoys a view of the Ochsenkopf (Ox’s head) mountain and the Weissmaintal valley.
