I'm not surprised by the variation in reviews. I had a similar experience. We were warmly greeted by reception and accompanied to our room which was much appreciated. We were offered a terrible room on the fifth floor despite paying a great deal. The bathtub was unusable for a man my size. But the spa was nice so I showered there. Although the service in the spa was non-existent; towels accumulated As did coffee and water cups. It looked sloppy and unkempt. The internet didn't "reach" our room. At a luxury hotel in 2014 this is just unacceptable.
Bike rentals are €10. The hotel is a 30 minute walk to Lindau Insel - must they really charge for bike rentals? Seems cheap. Overall the place needs a hefty renovation to get back to "old warm charm". Not worth the price.
