We were a family of 4 and received a nice area to ourselves, including a spacious bathroom, spacious living area space in bedroom and another separate bedroom. Nice, clean and cozy. Rooms decorated nicely. The only drawback of the rooms were because it was hot, we had to leave windows open and neighbours were loud partying away till late at... More

Booked the night before while in Italy during a two month journey. When we got off the train in Innsbruck, we discovered that train, road, bus, taxi, everything had been stopped into the Garmish area due to the G7 Summit as a security precaution. We had booked a non-refundable room here, but though we would still go ahead and explain... More

Thank you for taking time out to fill out comments on our hotel, even though you never stayed here. I am genuinely sorry that we couldn't cancel your booking free of charge at 6pm on the day of your reservation as you requested, quite insistently. I don't think we were rude, we just couldn't comply with what you were requesting... More

This was a last minute stay for us as I had to do some location scouting for an upcoming photo shoot here and the other places were already booked. First the rooms are clean and functional, the staff (except for the large guy at nite) was very sweet and pleasant. The restaurant is quite wonderful and we will return as... More

We stayed at this hotel so while visiting the nearby Neuschwanstein Castle. We booked a small room and when we arrived she had upgraded us because there were only two people staying in the Hotel. Apparently a small room applies to the ceiling height and not just the square footage. She said I (being 6'3") would not be comfortable in... More

Thank you so much Terry for your very kind review of our hotel. On your visit, the hotel was very quiet so we were happy to give you the free upgrade. As with many of our visitors, your reason for staying was Neuschwanstein castle. While here to see Neuschwanstein Castle, we hope you also had time to take in the... More

Super hotel, we recommend this nice hotel.... This hotel is a great base for exploring the sights of the Romantic Road... These include Hohenschwangau Castle and Neuschwanstein Castle, only a 5-minute drive away... Super braekfast...fantastic fresh croissants....

In addition there was a variety of teas, coffee and cocoa with biscuits in the room. We were happy warming up after long walk around the Neuschwanstein. Staff was very friendly.

I couldn't ask for a nicer hotel - just delightful! They responded to emails quickly and helpfully and the lady who greeted us on arrival spoke perfect english and was very friendly.

Thank you so much RossTrege for all your positive comments on our hotel and its surroundings. We were really delighted to read them. We are lucky that, although we are extremely near to Neuschwanstein Castle, 5 minutes by bus, we are far removed from the bustle surrounding the castle. So after a day of enjoying our surroundings you can come... More
