We recently stayed at the Hotel Seespitz for 3 nights while on a driving vacation in Southern Germany. This is a very pleasant hotel in a beautiful surrounding. The hotel is on the edge of a lake and is built in a very classic Alpine Design. Our room was large and comfortable, with a full-size balcony featuring views of the lake and Tegelberg Mountain. We went with a one bedroom with kitchen- the kitchen came equipped with a microwave oven, mini-fridge, 2 burner range top, dishes, silverware and pots and pans for cooking. There is also a bread bag that you can have filled daily with your choice of rolls, croissants or soft pretzels. There is plenty of storage in the rooms including roomy wardrobes and shelf and drawer space. Our room also had a pullout sofa bed. Coffee was supplied as well. There is no maid service and you will be charged a cleaning fee either when you make your reservation or upon check out.
The hotel is a 10 minute drive from the town of Fussen from which you can visit Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau castles as well as the Tegleberg luge and ski area. As we were visiting in September there was no skiing, but we did take the luge run several times (2 euro/ride) - it is a lot of fun! There is also a funicular that runs to the top of the Tegelberg peak- you can buy a round trip ticket (18 euro) or one way and hike back down. You will have to have a car to effectively travel in this area- we did see taxis, but not often. The driving is easy and parking- even in Fussen and at the castles- was not hard to find although you will do some walking.
The hotel has an Italian restaurant on-site (under separate ownership), and we enjoyed dinner one night -- we took back to our room to eat on our balcony overlooking the lake. Prices are reasonable, about 10 euro for pizza and 4 euro for soup. Breakfast is also available at the restaurant for 15 euro, but with a kitchen, there is no reason not to simply make your own.You can shop for groceries about 5 minutes by car at Lidl or Aldi or several other markets.
The hotel has garage parking, a laundry room with 2 washers and 2 dryers that are slower than American models, a small pool open 24 hours, picnic tables on the grounds and a play area for kids. There are also walking trails that circumnavigate the lake and a small park close by.
It was quite warm during our visit, and there is no air conditioning in the rooms. The hotel also controls the heat (assuming they know what makes you comfortable). When asked about this, the desk clerk was a little snarky, responding “you do not need a/c”- his answers to most questions seemed to be generally of that nature. Also, they suffered a power outage one night for about 3 hours due to a breaker going out and there was no communication from staff. Also be aware that the front desk is staffed on only limited hours and if you arrive outside of those hours, you may have to wait 4 hours to check in when they return (although sometimes they seemed to leave keys out for late-arriving guests).
Regardless, this is an excellent choice of hotel if you are visiting this area of Germany.
