We puchased the 'King for Two Days' package and it worked out very well for us.
We had a deluxe room in the Jagerhaus - double aspect, each set of windows giving magnificent views of both castles (despite Neuschwanstein being covered in scaffolding!). Room was large and plush with an odd mix of furniture styles but comfortable nonetheless. The bathroom was large and well equiped but we had to keep the (shabby) curtain drawn as the window did not have obscure glazing and was quite close to pedestrian areas. The canopied bed was large and comfortable with very nice linens.
Our package included full breakfast - adequate but not the best we had on our road trip and two evening meals. The first dinner was in the Schloss Lisl hotel main building. Strangely this restaurant closed at an inconvenient 7pm ! We were in a separate, almost empty dining room. A massive tour group that was staying in the Schloss Lisl section was in another dining room. It was a fixed 3 course menu. However, the main course was not to our liking but the kitchen kindly made an alternative that was excellent. The service was friendly too.
Our second dinner was a 4 course affair in the Alpenrose Restaurant in a lovely c.1905 building by the lake, although the dining room strangely lacked any astmosphere. This restaurant stayed open until 10pm and was busier than the Schloss Lisl restaurant. However, again the main course of the fixed menu was not to our liking but again the kitchen very kindly offered us an alternative. However, this time it was distinctly average and not very enjoyable. The other courses though were good and we enjoyed those. The service was very friendly too.
The package included timed entries into both castles and entry into a very impressive museum about the Kings of Bavaria. The reception at the hotel was most helpful in organising these tickets and throughout our stay which made for a relaxing visit. It was quite good value all told, including secure complimentary parking.
What made it special though was being there after all the coach parties had gone and almost having the village and the castles to yourself - quite magical.
