Here is Ray's Feedback:

Pleasant stay in Berchtesgaden
The house is an older property with character. The accommodation is cosy with a wood burning stove in the living room. The apartment is well equipped and has a beautiful view across to the Watzman mountain. Excellent walking area, we were there before Easter so many places were shut but this meant fewer people around for our visits to Koenigsee and Hintersee.↵On arrival there was no hot water in the bathroom which was rectified by openining the valves on the hot water cylinder. The radiator in the bathroom is too small and doesn`t heat the room sufficiently.↵All in all a pleasant stay in Berchtesgaden.

What I liked best: Balcony view. Cosy accomodation.

What I liked least: Insufficient heating in bathroom. Noise from road.
