Perfect stay with a beautiful view from the room. Premisses are clean, renovated and accessible. Nice breakfast included as well as free parking. 100% recommended. Best value for the money. At last but not least, friendly staff.

Helmerhof was perfect for people with a car looking to stay near Fussen/Neuschwanstein. My room was comfortable and clean, and came with a little porch. The staff were very kind and helpful. Breakfast was pleasant.

Booked at short notice (that morning) and informed them that I needed easy access as I use a walking aid. We got a very nice room. Very spacious and comfortable, with a balcony and fairly close to the lift. Quiet too! The restaurant meals were good quality and reasonably priced and the staff were very accommodating and spoke English well...

I ate here on short notice after seeing other reviews and didn't realize it would be completely booked! The staff was friendly and accommodating and was able to seat me (at 1700) before their main dinner rush. The food was hearty and reasonable portions. Best cappuccino in an unexpected location, too!

I have to give the Helmerhof, in Schwangau, Germany, the very highest of ratings. It is a beautiful, quaint, classy hotel in the Bavarian Alps, in the town close to the Neuschwanstein (read: the Disney castle prototype) and Hohenschwangau castles, hiking in the valley and mountains, and fun on the lake. We were there to visit the castles. I had...

Rooms are average, but the location is perfect if you plan the visit the royal Bavarian castles. The distance to Neuschwanstein is around 3 km (20-30 minutes of easy walking or 10-15 minutes by a bike that are available for rent in the hotel). Meals are excellent both for breakfast and dinner. Booking a table for a dinner is recommended,...

Hotel Helmerhof is nicely located in the surroundings of Schwangau. You can rent bikes and book tours through the reception. Good breakfast and dinner facilities. The restaurant and reception staff is very friendly and professional. We had one bad experience with a waitress but the other waitresses tried to make it up and excused her unprofessional behaviour. Food in the...

We booked 2 rooms in this hotel for 3 nights and we were not disappointed. It was an excellent establishment, well run by professional and friendly staff. Our "comfort" rooms in the main building were beautifully decorated and well equipped and cost 124 euros per room per night. We had our own balconies with views of the surrounding countryside and...

We were staying in Schwangau for 10 days in May. Fabulous holiday, fantastic scenery made all the better by the two delicious meals that we enjoyed here. So many meals in Germany can be do samy. But the food here was outstanding. The place always packed so that says it all. Thoroughly enjoyed. If we were to re visit the...
