Hotel Schreier
Ranked #5 of 23 Lindau B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 November 2011

Great hotel, we got an upgrade on arrival. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Location is second to non, right in the middle of town on the water front, we had views of the harbour from our room. Breakfast was also fantastic, would recommend paying the extra.

Lindau really is a picturesque chocolate-box town, and Hotel Schreier is an excellent place to discover it from - it's right on the lake front.
You can't drive up to the hotel, as the area is all pedestrianised, so we had to park elsewhere and bring our bags to the hotel. Parking is at a premium in the island, so we had a little trouble finding a place to park before we checked in.
The hotel does provide free parking - it's maybe 10 minutes walk away with a foot bridge over the train tracks, so definitely park somewhere closer before bringing your bags!

We booked a lake view room with a patio, and while it was the most expensive room we paid for on our holiday, it was worth it!

Very nice hotel with exceptional service and friendliness.

Nice big room on top floor (3rd floor - no elevator) - one of the nicest rooms on our trip. No air-con but unfortunately we didn't need it!

Breakfast is in the ice-cream cafe at the front. A nice buffet and very good value (8.50 euros).

Room was expensive compared with others we stayed in on this trip but this was at the start of the German holiday season. Fantastic location on the front of the harbour side at Lindau.

After staying for three nights at a neighbouring bigger hotel in connection to my office work, I stayed at this little gem for three more nights in Lindau. But before you read any further please note that this is a small hotel with nine rooms only and has no elevator or restaurant and from evening to morning there is nobody at the front desk. In other words if you are used to bigger hotels with certain facilities and services and are willing to pay for the same then this hotel is not for you.
But on the other hand if you appreciate informal, personalised and friendly service coupled with an unbelievable location and price, which is around less than half of the other hotels, then please read on. In fact apart from the elevator issue, which may cause trouble for some, I can not think of any other reason for staying somewhere else in Lindau. Of course if somebody else is footing the bill then it is a different issue.
The room I stayed at was not large but more than big enough for a single person. The room and the attached bathroom were both clean and tidy. There was ample room for storage and the bed was comfortable. The room also had amenities like safe box, flat screen TV and mini bar. The bathroom contained some basic supplies but as I did not use any I have no idea about the quality. What I can confirm is the quality of the towels, which were really good. I mention this specifically as I had different experience in the past with small hotels in this regard.
I had breakfast at the hotel which was included in the room rate and consisted mostly of cold cuts and breads, for hot dishes you have to ask the hotel staff. The breakfast gets served in the hotel café facing the lake with both indoor and outdoor seating. The food quality was good and the service prompt. In fact all the staff (mostly I believe from the family which owns the hotel) I came in contact with was friendly, helpful and accommodating. This along with the location, price and clean neat and tidy rooms will make sure that I come back to this hotel when I visit Lindau the next time.

Room Tip: Get the room with a lake facing balcony

This hotel offers great value when compared with other waterfront hotels. The cafe at the front where breakfast is served looks out over the harbour. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the staff are very helpful regarding advice about day trips and restaurants. We stayed during a very hot spell and the room was uncomfortable during the night. I later found that there is A/C available in other rooms.
Special thanks to Sabina for all the help and advice especially the recommendation for a restaurant called Wissingers, tucked away in a back street it is well worth a visit.

We just spend 4 wonderful days/nights at the Hotel Schreier. We traveled by train and flew into/out of Zurich. The setting is lovely, a quaint village on an island in Lake Constance. This hotel is superb ... terrific breakfasts, rooms spotless and good sized, roomy bathrooms, very clean with great showers. The most important aspect, though, is a level of service unequalled in our European travels. Sabina and Natalie were the best hosts we have encountered in three decades of travel throughout Europe. They cater to every need you have and think of all the extras that make your stay special.

Other factors to consider about this hotel and Lindau:
hotel on waterfront, easy to find, in old town
hotel 4 minute walk from train station
nice restaurants nearby
excellent running/walking/biking paths
easy access to ferries and trains
stunning scenery everywhere
extremely nice local people

We highly recommend the Hotel Schreier. They check their emails daily and respond quickly to inquiries. Again, the hotel shows the time, effort, and dedication of Sabina and Natalie who will amaze you with the standards of excellence they have achieved.

Our lasting impression was much better than our first. The first thing I noticed was worn carpet on the stairs and a slightly funky odor. When we got up to our room, Cappuccino, the smell changed to that of air fresheners – also not a positive, as far as we’re concerned. In fairness, though, I should point out that I only noticed these smells right at first, so they weren’t horrible (but are the main reason why I’m not ranking it a 5).

The room itself is somewhat utilitarian looking, with a firm bed. (Europe seems not to have discovered pillow-top mattresses!) But the Cappuccino Room did have two big positives. One was its private terrace with a great view of the lion, especially pretty at night. The terrace was large enough for a table and chairs and a lounge chair.

The other big positive was the bathroom. It appeared to have been recently remodeled with some of the best faux stone tile I’ve ever seen, and halogen lighting that made everything sparkle. A built-in tile shelf provided a great place to put things above the sink area. A lot of thought went into designing that bathroom with travelers’ needs in mind. (FYI, it was shower only, no tub.)

The hotel doesn’t have a lobby or dedicated dining area. Breakfast was served at the attached café. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

Lindau itself was a breath of fresh air. It was our first night in Europe on this trip, and after the hectic activities that seem always to accompany getting away on vacation, it was so good to have this quiet, delightful town as a first stop. It was 9:00 p.m. before we got checked in and able to go to dinner, but the hotel’s location is perfect for walking to a number of tempting restaurants. We chose one with an unobstructed view of the lion and the lighthouse, and the full moon.
