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....

Thank you Maria B for your lovely comments regarding our hotel. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay so much. It's great to hear you took full advantage of the Romantic Road and visited many points of interest along this route. It is a very popular way to see Germany and avoid the motorways!

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. The room was great, and in keeping with the beautiful Bavarian village. The hotel provided cards for free travel to the castle from the nearby bus stop which... More

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

Most wonderful stay in a gorgeous family run hotel. Close to castles and the local towns. Beautiful traditional rooms with superior traditional food. Ideal for families, couples and singles. Have stayed summer and winter and both the perfect holiday!

Stayed there two nights and it was a pleasant stay. On the main road you can get access to Neuschwanstein by bus about 15mins because the bus goes around in big loop. I wish I came back in the midday for the restaurant, but the breakfast I has was great. Couldn't agree more.

I arrived at this quaint alpine hotel on a Tuesday for a two night stay whilst travelling across Europe. Tuesday was fine, nice food, quiet room, good WiFi etc., but nobody told me the hotel would be closed the following day - and in fact every Wednesday. So imagine my surprise after breakfast on Wednesday, when I went for a... More

Thank you very much for the positive feedback. The sall rooms in the second floor are smaller and the ceilings lower. For taller guests we recommend booking the standard double rooms in the first floor for extra space.
