“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Everything you want or need, the owners go out of their way to help. Monica and her son, specially, speaks wonderful English. The place is clean, modern, and in a beautiful area. It is less than 5 minutes by car to the castles. The breakfast was simply outstanding, homemade cakes, bread, great assortment of cheeses and cold cuts. We recommend. Only improvement is that they could use a heavier material for the window curtains that would allow less light to come in to the room from the street lamps.

Room Tip: Rooms to the castle are more quiet, but in the back buildings, they are away from the main drag.

This is a perfect hotel for those driving: easy to find, plenty of parking, and close to all the sites. Excellent English is spoken, and they take care of their guests quite well. The property consists of the main building with breakfast area, and a separate more modern two-story building behind it with 8 clean and spacious rooms. Best breakfast of the six small hotels we stayed at during our tour of Bavaria!!
Across the street is an excellent restaurant for dinner at the Hotel Helmerhof. It is very popular with the locals, and rightly so. Reservations recommended. Enjoy your visit of the castles and Fussen at this conveniently located and well-run hotel property. There is a large grocery store just a couple of kilometers up the highway in Schwangau for stocking goods.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back building are off of the highway.

A great hotel to use as a base to visit the king's castles. It is just 5 min drive from the hotel. The hotel is super cute and charming. The owner (Monica) is extremely helpful. We had advance online reservations to visit the castles and we had to be there at 8:50 am to pick up the tickets. The breakfast usually starts at 8 am, but Monica accommodated us for breakfast at 7:30 am itself. The spread is HUGE. We wish we had more time to try out all the stuff.

Like one of the traveller mentioned, we also arrived late and had our room key and all the instruction taped to the front entrance!

The hotel has just enough parking spots to accommodate all the guests which is great!

We had a very comfortable stay.

Excellent small hotel with very friendly staff. Ideal for seeing this part of Bavaria especially the two fantasy castles only 25 minutes walk away. The breakfast was very good.
Only slight niggle was the noisy from the road, so ask from a room away from the roadside of the hotel.

We arrived after the latest check-in time to find our room key taped to the front door with personalized instructions for everything. Nice! Wifi is free after you register and the hotel itself is modern, clean and romantic in a rustic Bavarian fashion. Highly recoommended!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

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.
