“Lovely bed and breakfast”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

It was a lovely bed and breakfast spotlessly clean and excellent breakfast. It was traditionally german and the owners could not have been more helpful even letting our grandchildren shower before their journey home. The recommendations of restaurants was also excellent we shall definitely visit the area again

Room Tip: We had a room on the front with a balcony a little noisy but it was lovely

Based strictly on the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor I booked the Landhotel Guglhupf for our stay in the Schwangau region, and I am happy I did. This is certainly more of a B&B than a hotel, which made our stay that much more intimate.

The owner and hostess, Monika, greeted us warmly and personally showed us to our premium double room in the adjacent chalet, a warm A-frame styled space with vaulted wood ceiling, terrazzo tile flooring, light-wood colored accent furniture (including a valet), and a comfortable couch. The room featured a wide balcony, from which the two castles could be seen (albeit distantly).

The large bathroom was fantastic, featuring a large jetted tub, towel warmer, and rain shower-head equipped shower. The twin beds were foam mattress-type on a wood frame but were comfortable.

The one small drawback of the room was the low ceilings in the vicinity of the day-bed and around the twin beds – this may result in the occasional bump to taller people.

Breakfast, served in a cosy, homey room in the main chateau was above-average, featuring local pastries and baking in addition to sausage and eggs, cheeses, cold cuts, and fruit.

The central location of the property, almost equidistant between Hohenschwangau, Schwangau, and Fussen makes this an ideal location from which to explore the area.

To summarize, Monika and her family made us feel like we were guests in her own home and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Landhotel Guglhupf.

Room Tip: For a quieter rest and a view of the castles ask for a room in the chateau adjacent to the main buil...

This hotel is about 3 minutes driving from the fairy tale castles and has parking. There is an excellent restaurant 2 minutes walk away. The staff are wonderful and couldn't be more helpful. The rooms are beautiful and it is evident a lot of time and thought has gone into their decoration. The breakfast was second to none. The variety was truly remarkable.

I did not expect a balcony with (distant) views of both Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau but that is what our room afforded.

We were made very welcome by our hosts and the breakfast included a wonderful selection of home-made cakes. The room was spotless and the décor of the public areas was most attractive. Fussen is an pleasant town just a few minutes drive away (but traffic can be heavy in peak season) and there is a good selection of restaurants available.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with castle views.

We loved this place, which I would call a guest house rather than an hotel. A warm welcome, beautifully clean and with delightful collections of interesting and pretty things to look at. Our room was pleasant and very clean, and was sufficiently cool even during a heat wave. The breakfast was breath taking! We have never before seen such an array of choice and tasty, home made delicacies - if only we could have eaten more or stayed for longer! Car parking was on site and convenient, and the hotel is well placed for visiting the major tourist attractions nearby. We would have no hesitation in staying here again - one of the best we visited across southern Germany!

We stayed in a lovely room at the back of the hotel with good views of the castles.The hotel is very clean with well appointed bedrooms.The staff are lovely and very willing to give sound advice on visits.We enjoyed the drive to Linderhof which was our favourite castle.Avoid Oberammergau.Nothing but a tourist trap.
Their are two good restaurants within walking distance.Take the sound advice of the hotel.You may need to book.
Breakfast was very good .One of the best on our tour.
Be at the local castles early to avoid a long wait.
