“Rustic Bavarian charm. Enjoyable stay!”
The hotel is located right in the centre of Schwangau on the main road through town. Schwangau is a tiny village and this place is located right in the heart. It backs onto meadows running right up to Neuschwanstein Castle and the Alps. My wife and I were surprised to find that we were more or less the only foreign tourists in the entire hotel; this one appears extremely popular with older Germans.
If I had to name the style of the hotel, it would be "Rustic Bavarian". The room we stayed in was on the ground floor with a covered patio and was facing the hotel parking lot so privacy and the view weren't exactly A+, but not that bad. The furniture was of older style, but fit very well with the hotel's overall feel. The washroom appeared recently renovated/updated; however, we found it on the cramped side, especially the shower, which was surprising given the hotel's key demographic. There was plenty of storage in the room, but no in-room safe to secure valuables. The room was quiet, clean and of adequate comfort (as he furniture was quite basic).
The hotel has a large lounge, located at the rear of the hotel complete with an honour bar, internet terminal, board games and books. There are tons of couches and chairs to relax on and the windows look out on country meadows, Neuschwanstein Castle and the Alps. The lounge opens onto a nice, private outdoor patio and yard.
Ample free parking is available in the hotel parking lot.
Wireless internet is provided free of charge.
Laundry (wash and dry) was available for €1 each, including detergent. We found this to be an exceptional value.
Access to the hotel's spa is included with the nightly fee and a very impressive spa it is! The facility includes a sauna, eucalyptus steam room, gym, lounge, nail bar for the ladies, massage therapy and a tanning bed. It is very unexpected as you descend into it.
The included buffet breakfast is above average by German standards, offering a variety of hot & cold items. We also enjoyed dinner at the hotel restaurant one night. The menu is loaded with authentic Bavarian food, which came in large, tasty portions. English menus were available.
The staff were very friendly and attentive.
Overall, a solid choice for a visit to Schwangau. Great value and an authentic experience.
Rooms on the front of the hotel are right on the main road through town and probably quite noisy dur...
