I followed the ratings to this gem of a bed and breakfast. We made last minute reservations and a trip to visit the two castles. It was located about 2 km from the castles. Monika was a wonderful hostess, warm, welcoming and gave great advice on restaurants that were not tourist traps.

We had two rooms, one for hubby and I, and one for our two teen girls. Both were clean, comfortable, and big. The bathrooms were spacious, new and towels big and fluffy. And free wifi! Wow! We were in heaven.

Breakfast was wonderful. Scrambled eggs, sausages, baked goods, cereals. Coffee and teas. In a beautiful dining room that was fine restaurant quality. The plates were even china!

I would highly recommend to anyone visiting the two castles or Bavaria.

Hotel Guglhupf was everything you could want in a hotel, in fact, it was more like a B&B. The rooms were generously sized, impeccably clean and had a homely feel. The breakfast buffet (much of it baked by the wonderful Monika herself) extended well beyond any other European breakfast buffet I have experienced.
We were staying over the Christmas period and Monika cooked waffles, potato salad and some traditional bavarian meat (all free of charge, as her Christmas gift to us), she then surprised us with a plate of freshly baked cookies and a wrapped present of eggnog. She could not have made the guests feel more at home during this period, and went to every effort to ensure our comfort.
The hotel was also a leisurely stroll from Fussen (around 20 minutes) and to the castles (15 minutes), it was also easily acessible by taxi or bus from the station for those who are not driving!
All in all, we left with not one complaint! Thank you Monika!

This hotel was difficult to find as the internet says its in the town of Schwangau while in fact the town name is "HORN". Our GPS couldnt find it under Schwangau. We popped into the Tourist Information for directions.
The owner of the property was very hospitable and kind. She personally showed us to our room. We paid extra to have views of King Ludwigs castles - well worth the extra expense. There was a chocolate on our pillow which was a lovely touch. The room was very clean and modern, although the ceiling over the bed was a bit low - so we had to be careful not to bump our heads!. Spa was delightful and comfortable. The highlight of this place is the BREAKFAST!! it is a breakfast to die for - sooooo much food and all home made!! the owner gets up early and does all the cooking - 3 different types of German bread, home baked cake..... I could go on and on but I'm making myself feel hungry!! Monika gets up at 5am to prepare all this and she is amazing! I would definitely stay here again and i advise all of you who are planning to visit King Ludwig's castles, to not even bother looking elsewhere for accomodation. This place is a 3 min drive to the carpark of the castles so very very convenient. It is also a 6 min walk to the supermarket if you wish to stock up on some supplies

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get views of the castles

Stayed for the weekend to enjoy the Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau. The hosts left us the key in the door so we could check-in late. In the morning we were in for a delicious and hearty breakfast (although we were late for breakfast). On the day of departure we also no hurry. Wonderful service.

Room Tip: We recommend you Neuschwanstein room that have a fantastic view

This charming bed and breakfast was like staying at home. We drove there from Augsburg along the Romantic road. It was easy to find and a pleasure to stay. The hostess was very inviting, the accommodations were clean and comfortable. Parking and wifi were included and the breakfast was delicious! We would stay there again without hesitation.

More like a bed and breakfast than a hotel. Monika, her dog Lotte, and all of her staff do an excellent job. Great proximity to the castles. The best breakfast I have ever had in my life. I want to go back for Monika's bread alone. Eggs cooked to order, homemade breads, jams, and jellies. It feels like a Ski Lodge. We stayed on our honeymoon for a night and were sad to leave. We had the top floor facing the street and there was no noise from the road. We would highly recommend!

Room Tip: Any room is great. Even facing the street.
