“A Wonderful Time in Lindau in general and at Hotel Garny Brugger in particular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

We spent 5 nights at Hotel Garni Brugger in Lindau and it was a great experience. The room is spacious enough for 4 adults, comfortable beds and all other emenities needed .
We have never ran into such friendly, kind and warm people as the owners, Evelyn and Ervin Brugger, and we have travled a lot. They went out of their way to meet any request we had, especially vegetables at breakfast which you rarely see at breakfast in Europe.
The hotel is very close to the pedestrian zone and the lake, and of course the parking lot ( only a short walk) which is very important.
The Bruggers know a lot about tourist attractions around lake konstanz and other tourist sites in the close surrowndings and they provide their guests with plenty of tips and instructions that ease planing and travelling.
If I ever come back to lake konstanz and Lindau, I would definatley stay at Hotel Garni Brugger.

Well our kids were just born in the winter and we had to find a place to spend Easter with them. Lindau is a wonderful place but finding accomodation that fitted budget and the needs of 4 adults and two newborn infants can be tricky.

But, not will this quaint till pension haus run by the Brugger family. Yes it is not near the station and not with the breaktaking views of the lake and mountains, but we got a large family room with all amenities that made our stay quite comfortable.

It is actually a large house furnished in a homely manner with the lady Mrs Brugger mostly running the show. She is worked round the clock starting by arranging breakfast in the morning. She took special care because of our kids and even gifted a book which I happened to like from one of the common shelves.

Location wise, if you take a turn after coming out and you reach the lake where you can take a leisurely stroll at your pleasure or take the ferry on the Lake Konstanz.

Overall it might not be the most luxurious hotels, but is warm, cosy and friendly for the situation we were in.

Yes is not one of the beautiful hotels in front of the lake but the price is fantastic and location is not bad at all, clean and basic, great breakfast and if people make places this is a great one as the staff were terrific, friendly, helpfull, attentive and professional.

I booked two rooms and both were next to a main road which was busy with traffic all night long - not what you'd expect from the description of the hotel or indeed the island. Not the best location. I parked my car in their rather scary carpark where you park in a lift & then move car up or down - not for the faint-hearted or large vehicles! Rooms were bare & a bit pokey. On the good side, staff were lovely & friendly, breakfast sparse but adequate, and cheap rates (so can't complain too much). Lindau is a pretty town with a good Xmas market early December in the harbour which was beautiful in the snow.

Room Tip: NOT at the front on the main road!

Our family (2 adults and 2 kids-9&6 yrs) stayed in the "family suite". It was perfect! One very large room with one queen and two double beds. The breakfasts were fantastic. The family/owners were very helpful and went out of their way. The location was great. Walking distance to all of Lindau. The cost was very resonable. An outstanding value! A family, or anyone, could not go wrong staying here.

Good choice on the edge of the pedestrian zone. Easy to get to anywhere on the island in 10 to 15 minutes by foot. Nice, clean, quiet room with balcony for less than 100 Euros, including a delicious breakfast cooked and served by friendly family. Parking available (fee) within a couple of blocks, but there is space to drop off bags in front of the hotel. Reception closes at 6 p.m., but arrangements can be made for later arrival. Note that website pictures were taken with a lens that makes rooms appear larger than they actually are. No lunch or dinner at hotel, but staff gave us great restaurant suggestions, including the fabulous Alte Post, about 5 minutes from the hotel.

Room Tip: Request room with a balcony overlooking the courtyard.

We stayed there for a full week in summer of 2010 for our first trip to Germany. Just getting to writing the review now (Nov 2011). The hotel staff spoke perfect English, which as we're from the USA and know very limited German this was important. All preliminary e-mail queries were answered promptly. The hotel staff were all very pleasant and very helpful. The room was large and the beds very comfortable. The only thing the hotel didn't have was an elevator, but I believe that's the situation with most of the hotels in the area. A short bridge connects the island to the mainland. Parking is just off the mainland side of the bridge. Although not evident from the photos, the hotel is actually two buildings separated by a small courtyard. The rooms facing the courtyard are have small, nice balconies. We chose Lindau for it's cental location to Austria and Switzerland and attractions around the lake which you can travel to by boat or train from Lindau. The boats and train station is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel which gives opportunity to see the various shops and restaurants on the island. Highly recommended hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony. Even if you don't use it, those rooms have no street noise at al...
