Excellent lakeside location but you do need a car. Very good food. Excellent swimming facilities - indoor and outdoor pool and private lake access. An enjoyable experience.

It would have been preferable to have had two pillows on the bed. There was little in the way of toiletries offered in the bathroom considering this is an expensive four star hotel. The hotel charges for tap water if requested at mealtimes which is not usual. Although excellent at other venues in the region, the hotel's version of blackcurrant juice seemed to be very watered down cordial using fizzy water - unpleasant and disappointing.

Although there is a turned off fridge in the room - it is not stocked unless you request it.

Room Tip: A lake view is best with wonderful views - but although a hot region in the summer the rooms are not air conditioned.

I recently spent three nights at this hotel. The lakeside location is beautiful, and the attentive staff, spectacular lakeside view and excellent food made for a terrific dining experience. However, some of the public areas in the hotel are shabby and dated, and need upgrading. The room, (a twin) was fine, but a little cramped for two people. We did ask for something a little more spacious, but met with an indifferent response from the (mostly) lacklustre reception staff. Otherwise the room and bathroom were comfortable and provided for all of our needs, though the lack of air conditioning was an unwelcome surprise, and the heat of the room made it very difficult to sleep.

Lovely beachfront hotel, overlooking "bodensee". Great service, both in reception, bar and restaurant. Nice indoor and outdoor pool. High quality SPA. The hotelrestaurant is among the best we have tried in a long time.

MINUS _ Incidental costs were high - a coffee at nearly 6 euros could cost us a fortune at our rate of consumption, for example. However, one issue stood out - the room was unbearably hot. There was no heating on, it was not so hot outside and our window was open but still it was unbearable afternoons, and at night any sheet was too much. The staff seemed nonplussed as to why. There was no a/c which I would expect in a hotel at 220 eur/night. Staff offered a table top fan but the noise of that is too much. Also the rooms were surprisingly small.
PLUS -The location and care of staff was very good, one had the feeling of being in a privately owned hotel and not a chain. A wide choice based Breakfast on the rear patio overlooking the lake sets one up for a lazy day out. Due to the presence of two Presidents at this dates the security was high but unobtrusive and efficient. The grounds were beautiful and the access to the boot to Lindau rather unusual.

Room Tip: Ensure a room with a/c in the summer

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Bad Schachen for one night in June just after we picked up our new BMW 750 in Munich. The hotel has a beautiful location in a park-like setting right on the lake. They have extensive grounds and a lovely (though cool) swimming pool. We had a great time at the pool and a delightful dinner overlooking the lake. Breakfast was delicious and our room had a lovely view, though it hadn't been updated in a while. Room was very very clean and nice - just a little dated.

We would love to go back and it was a lovely experience.
