Do not hesitate when booking this hotel - it is fantastic. Charming family-run boutique hotel, mainly suitable for babies, toddlers, nursery and primary school aged kids but there is also a room for teens with Wii, table football etc. Indoor climbing wall and padded play area for nursery and school aged kids if they have energy left after ski school. Refurbished last year in a funky Alpine chic style. Immaculately clean and well kept. Rooms vary in size but ours was a suite with a bunk bed room and a large double bedroom plus two shower rooms, balcony had a view of the ski lift, magically illuminated at night. 2700 Euros all in for a week, you could probably stay there more cheaply but we had a hulking great teen with us and needed space. So much full board we couldn't eat everything (even said teenager) - massive breakfasts, lunch buffet with hot food option, home made cake mid afternoon and 4-5 course dinners, all non-alcoholic drinks free all day (just help yourself, including bean to cup coffee machine). Free formula and organic babyhood for tinies, baby bottle overnight cleaning service, free bibs, free swimming nappies. Free all-day childcare if you want it, lovely kids' club with happy and devoted childcarers. Swimming pool (small but perfectly formed) and terrific sauna area/relaxation room with view of the Alps, hotel even thoughtfully provided beers in the sauna fridge (£). Garden has play area including sledges, trampoline, climbing frame, parents sit watching their kids from the terrace. Guest lounge with quirky seats, paperbacks and an open fire, great for a post-prandial cocktail. Hotel has a ski boot room, albeit slightly rudimentary, and a small washing machine you can use, useful for air travellers with minimal luggage and emergency washing needs. (No dryer though). Friendliest hotel I have stayed in since my honeymoon, smiling young women in traditional dress put your holiday at the centre the whole time. Lovely, lovely people. Relaxed atmosphere.

Skiing in Garmisch - Resort is high with bonus glacier and avoids snow problems of much of France. Our half term often comes before many of the German ones, so it wasn't too busy. Large traditional ski resort, many ski schools operate there, all bilingual, extremely high standard of tuition. Your pass works over the border in parts of Austria as well. Family discounts on ski passes. Plenty of runs of all types. Excellent snow grooming. If you wait five minutes for a ski lift it's a bad day. We used the Schischule Garmisch and hired some kit (you can even hire entire ski suits if you need to), got two of our own pairs of skis fully serviced in 20 minutes flat in their workshop, bought new goggles in their well stocked ski shop and stored our skis daily in their heated lockers for hire. Caroline in the ski school is English and extremely helpful in helping people organise themselves. The kids were in ski school but we had private tuition with the legendary Mario, who has been a ski instructor for 46 years - we made absolutely massive progress with him. Plenty of bars on the piste to celebrate progress in.

Garmisch town - Good for family shopping, Zitzmann toy shop has been an institution for my lifetime and longer. Alpine kitsch in Platz Hirsch. Kaffee und Kuchen in Café Krönner. Sport Conrad for ski gear. Game Stop for teens missing their fix. Casino is practically the only night life. Don't come here for clubbing and debauched apres ski. Town is extremely family friendly. Plenty to do in terms of pottering about if you are a non-skier, full German spa programme as well.

Partenkirchen village - part of Garmisch-Partenkirchen area. Scenic, little folk museum shows archive films (we watched an amazing one about the 1936 Winter Olympics). Chocolate shop and factory with tours in Wednesdays, artisanal soap shop, gift shops. This is where our hotel was located.

Getting there - Fly to Munich, Innsbruck or Memmingen. We got the train from Munich airport to Garmisch - get S1 or S8 and change to mainline train at Munich Hauptbahnhof, ticket is 23 Euros one way for 2 adults and 2 children. Taxi from station is around 10-12 Euros, or there is a local ski bus (free once you get your Spa Tax cards). It's very easy so not worth hiring a car.

This was my first time staying in a family hotel. What a great experience and peace of mind because it had EVERYTHING to ensure kids are busy. The location is great - lots to walk around and the bus stop is 2 minutes away. Excellent transport system. Will definitely stay here again

Room tip: Get a room facing the mountain

In August 2016, we should have stayed in thenew building but instead the hotel proposed room 217 in the old-style chalet. The renovated room is a 2 bedroom 2 bathrooms 2 terraces so was more than enough for our family of 5.

Upon arrival the hotel informed about the all inclusive food and drink, child friendly spa and indoor playground and babycare, which for our baby of 18months was perfect, and he inmediately felt ok with the very nice women in charge of that service. They have lunch, baby-sleep, going for a walk midday,... he did not miss the usual babycare at all.

We arrived by car, but forgot about it with the nice GaPa bus service. We got the cards for that service upon the arrival for the 5 of us.

Extremelly clean, all the personnel is ready for assist on any doubt or need.

Good pool, good Spa with 2 kind of sauna, massage service...

We extended our stay for 2 more days!

Definetely a 5-star feedback!

Room tip: Any room is good, either in the old or new buildings (we checked both)

This hotel setup (rooms with adjoining bedrooms for kids, all inclusive food and drink, child friendly spa and indoor playground) made our group skiing trip easy and fun. And it's not easy taking five kids under ten skiing!

Great staff, good and plentiful food, beautifully newly renovated rooms and lounge areas and great location for the ski lifts (you really do need a car though - it is definitely NOT ski in / ski out as the Trip Advisor facilities state).

Only not a five star review due to the limited car parking / spoiled views (especially from the spa) because of lots of external ground and building work. Be great to see what it looks like when all is finished and has had heavy use for a year or so (did notice peeling paint already in the sauna).

Thanks Leiners - we had a great time!

The last time i was moved to write a review, was because i was so disappointed our stay, i ended up writing a 3-page letter to customer service. This is not the case here.

Our stay at the Leiner Hotel was excellent. The staff here is exceptional. They are a family-oriented hotel with as much focus on the parents as on the children.

It's true that the hotel needs some modernization and may lack in some facilities that some of the larger "resort" hotels have, but they more than make up for it in their staff. They are friendly and helpful without forcing it. Hotel Leiner has managed something rare, they have an entire staff of fantastic workers who enjoy their jobs, are personable and considerate.

Here are just a few examples:

- We booked late and accepted that we would need to spend one night in two separate single rooms. But a day later, Nicole and Doris had managed to move reservations around so that we had the same family room for our entire stay.

- On our first night, we arrived much later than expected. I called at 8pm to say we wouldn't make the dinner seating. Nicole said, no problem, our choice of dinner would be kept warm and would be ready whenever we got there! We arrived after 930, and still had a 4-course meal!

- In previous hotels we have stayed, which have said they have a baby club, we were always disappointed to find restrictions (age, time-limits, not actually available). At Leiner, the Babyclub is actually there! And (as long as you book one day in advance), they will happily take care of your baby for several hours!

The list goes on and on. It may not be for everyone, but this little family hotel was perfect for us!

Excellent!
