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...

We were actually supposed to stay at another hotel just down the road, but when we showed up there was a note on the door saying they'd be back soon. So, we drove down the street and happened across Hotel Helmerhof. They were super friendly, even with our last minute drop in/no reservation. Price was key, glad it was affordable!...

Hotel Helmerhof was a great choice for us. We didn't have a car and they picked us up and dropped us off at the train station in Fussen. We rented bikes right at the hotel, used the washing machine and dryer in the basement and ate most meals right at the hotel. We could hike, bike or take a bus...
