We stayed in a new family room on floor 2. Impressive and spotlessly clean. Best I have experienced.
Staff made us feel really welcome. Went out of their way to help out with our planned train trip to Munich.
Small menu with great value food. (Separate Restaurant immediately next door but appears as part of same hotel.)Waitress very helpful and understanding of any needs we had. My Sirloin Steak Dish was cooked to perfection. Chef took time to ask how it was after. Brilliant.
We had 2 really spacious fantastic modern double rooms with a large luxurious bathroom inbetween. (Toilet, bath, shower and lots of little extras, all you could want!) Tv's included in both rooms. Coffee making facility. Welcoming water bottles and other nice touches on arrival to room. On the down side, internet was not working throughout the stay. Other reviewers have marked down because of the building works on the site next door. (Could be for a long time) but we cannot fault the hotel for this. We were out for most of our days anyway! Finished by 5pm on our days. Sauna and fitness room on site. No pool. To conclude: we had a wonderful stay and highly recommend this Hotel. THANK YOU all at the Hotel Sauerlacher Post. 😁
Very good restaurant, variable service, no laundry

Checking in had its hitches. I felt the staff could have been more helpful about it, but they were not forbiddingly unhelpful, and I was, at least, allowed in and given a room. I got a room in the first floor, which seemed handy, except that there were doors and some steps to negotiate, which was not easy with suitcases.
The room was pretty basic. There was one bottle of complimentary water awaiting, which was nice, but this was not replaced over the next few days. The table which doubled up as desk was not big enough for a laptop, mouse and keyboard as well as the tray with the aforementioned bottle, so to do some work it was necessary either to move the tray off the table or to put the laptop where it arguably should be, that is, on your lap. I enjoyed having two windows with views of the village, but at night it was a struggle to stretch the curtains over the whole width of the windows.
Breakfast offered enough options for the gluten avoiders. The best combination I found was scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, the latter of surprisingly good quality. The coffee was unremarkable, which gave me the idea of waiting until I was in Munich to have a proper one.
By far the best thing in this hotel is the restaurant. It has a lively atmosphere and it is staffed by cheerful people who know their stuff and who clearly enjoy their jobs. The menu is traditional Bavarian, and everything I tried out of it was well cooked and tasty. The house wine is perfectly drinkable too.
Not meaning to make invidious comparisons, but for the sake of an even-handed review, a weaker area is the reception staff. Everyone is well-meaning enough, but if you want a clear, helpful answer get one of the female members of staff. They are more clued-up.
But by far the weakest point, the one which ultimately made us go somewhere else, was the internet. The WiFi in the rooms was intermittent, slow and, at best, excruciatingly slow. There were two or more networks you could go on, as the staff were prompt to point out, but the alternatives were no better than the network with the hotel's name on it. To perform the more urgent tasks it was necessary to go down to the foyer, where the signal was better, but this was not practicable if you had work to do first thing in the morning or late at night. In the event, as I say, the need for better internet was a major factor in the decision to opt for other accommodation.
One more thing: the description on Trip Advisor says that the hotel offers laundry service, but that is not accurate. I have it from the horse's mouth that they don't. They referred me to a place across the road that could take my laundry. When I went across the road I found that this was in fact not a laundry place, but a collection point for a place that took your laundry on specific days of the week and returned it several days later. Too slow for my requirements.
To end on a happier note, the cleaning lady ran to the car park to hand me the adaptor I had left behind. Some people do go the extra mile - thank you.
I would not rush to stay at the Sauerlacher Post again, although I would definitely want to go back to their restaurant, as we indeed did from our new location in a nearby village. We came back twice more, and had very enjoyable meals.
Value for money
