My wife and I booked the hotel as we were visiting Salzburg. Arriving at Salzburg airport from Stansted, we took a taxi directly from the airport to the hotel, which cost around €40. The hotel is charming, spotlessly clean, well furnished and equipped and well set out, with bedrooms facing out over the courtyard area, There are lovely trees bordering the open spaces in front of the main building, which is situated in the middle of the very quiet small village of Saaldorf. The owner and manager of the hotel, Michael, and his family are welcoming and the restaurant serves excellent, modestly priced, typically Bavarian meals. Family members help with the running of the hotel and restaurant and are pleasant and helpful, especially if you need some help with German words or information about the local area. Our only little niggle was that the pillows which are provided in the bedrooms, although large, are a little too soft, so they don't really provide any support.
We took a taxi to Freilassing (around €18) then took the train to Salzburg (day ticket about €4 each). The train arrives at the Haupt Bahnhof, so you need to cross the river if you want to see the main part of the old town. We returned from the Mulln Altstadt station to Freilassing, then back to the hotel by taxi. The next day we planned to take a taxi to Freilassing but, when we couldn't get a taxi, Michael Mayr very kindly took us in his own car to Freilassing. We then took the train to Berchtesgaden. The train journey from Freilassing takes around 45 minutes and is very pleasant. We were very lucky with the weather, with clear blue skies and bright sunshine, so the views of the mountains from Berchtesgaden village were fabulous.
We enjoyed an excellent long weekend at the hotel Maywirt and in Salzburg and Berchtesgaden,
