We spent 3 nights at the Bad Schachen in September. It enjoys a superb location overlooking Lake Konstanz. It is a grand hotel of a bygone era. We found the room extremely comfortable and well equipped. We had a lake view room and would recommend always getting such a room. Staff were friendly and welcoming right from check in when...

We were weary travelers and had stayed in many places with comparable prices, but from the moment we walked in to the Hotel Bad Schachen, we felt like royalty. Our check in was easy and welcoming with a happy sparkling wine toast. My husband and I were able to enjoy the pool and spa area and felt so relaxed and...

Just stayed in this place for 1 night while driving by. Selection criteria was late night arrival and early leave as this is not that easy to find somehow in this area. And I must say that was the only positive thing I can say about was the 24 hours reception. For the price I paid I got probably the...

I came for business stay. Service at front desk was nice, but I was disappointed when I entered room. Very old, without air conditioning. But I have to admit, it's very clean and well maintained. When I checked spa, I saw it's great, but I had no time to use it. Bar outside was perfect, staff as well.

This hotel has a long and noble tradition- three generations of my family have visited when on Lake Constance -- but if the facilities are so under-invested in, hospitable and gracious service is essential. We did not get this anywhere in the building -- or at the gorgeously situation lake side See Haus where one can swim in the lake....

Amazing location, in the middle of a forest, room with fantastic lake view, excellent breakfast and dinner, relaxing restaurant terrace, old time atmosphere through old architecture, piano music in the lobby , vintage pictures…besides this, going by boat from the front of the hotel to the Bregenz Festspiele was a charming experience.

One of the most beautiful views I've seen in my life. The hotel is very unique with furniture and decor that makes you feel you are living in the beginning of the XIX century. The food and the restaurant are very good. However the service was very average. We did ask for two rooms close by because of the kids...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Founded in 1752 and still owned and managed by the same family, the beautiful Hotel Bad Schachen was painstakingly rebuilt in 1906, faithfully embracing the Belle Epoque style.

An attractive outdoor pool on the lakefront and the new spa are the perfect places for recreation and wellbeeing. Indeed, the entire region's exceptional beauty and supreme tranquility make this a uniquely charming Bavarian summer retreat.125 guestrooms including 4 suites, in elegant and comfortable surroundings, mostly with balconies, thoughtful touches throughout, and every modern convenience. Most rooms face the lake, with glorious views across the water to the Swiss and Austrian Alps beyond.Spa and wellness center with beauty treatments, massage, fitness gym, saunas and steambath. 1920s-style outdoor pool, 2 clay tennis courts, a host of water sports on the lake (boat rentals, sailing and windsurfing), 2 beautiful nearby golf courses. ... more   less
