After much review and several emails to accommodation in Lindau we chose Hotel Garni Brugger and booked on the three day Autumn Special. My girlfriend and I were returning to Lindau for more exploring after an all too brief visit over 30 years ago. We hoped it was still as lovely as we had remembered it and were not in any way disappointed. Erwin and Evelyn owners of this family run hotel made our stay even more special. Their warm welcome and impeccable service would be very hard to surpass. Wonderful buffet breakfast, coffee served to the table, and genuine friendliness from the owners made us thankful we had chosen their hotel. The breakfast room and our room were spotless and we were in awe of the beautiful needlework pictures on many of the walls which were done over time by Erwin's mother.
The location to the harbor or train station was well under 10 minutes walking but certainly depended on how many stops one made to take in the beauty of this lovely little island. Across from the hotel is a lovely park and if you love walking it is a very pleasant stroll from there around the island. The hotel does not serve lunch or supper but there are many restaurants close by. Don't believe there is internet or wifi but there is a shop across from the railway station.
The climate was definitely Mediterranean like and there is much to do in the area.
We spent a very pleasant day in the historical town of Meersburg going by train and bus and coming back by boat on Lake Constance arriving just at sunset. There are some lovely shops, little streets to explore, a walk off the island (bridges close to the hotel) to explore parks, quiet streets and walk into the nearby countryside. I rented a bicycle and cycled to Austria on a flat cycle path (only 10km each way) and loved cycling back onto and around the island after that adventure.
Would we return? Definitely and most certainly return to Hotel Garni Brugger.
