Can't say enough about our recent stay. Staff, food, facilities - all exceeded expectations. My wife received massages and facials as part of the mom-to-be offering and she was more than satisfied and the oriental suite was worth the upgrade - amazing views! The staff support was excellent and super accommodating offering vegetarian options with the fixed dinner menus. Breakfast...

Stayed two nights in a single room and was really pleasantly surprised at how much I liked Hotel Helvetia. My room was small and basic but very clean and comfortable but had the added bonus of a balcony where I could lounge in the April sun. The spa areas are modern and comfortable with drinks widely available. Overall, I had...

We didn't stay here, but had a great lunch overlooking Lake Constance. We had tried to eat in another, but weirdly the waiting staff didn't seem to want to take our order - no such problem here! The staff were wonderful! Blankets provided (it was March) to keep the chill off. Food was great, and they cater for vegetarians. Their...

Looking over the harbour and close to the railway station (but not audibly so) this is an excellently located hotel from which to explore Bodensee. The hotel is very well run by an effective and friendly staff from Reception, though to waiting staff and chamber maids. The restaurant is first class with some very special dishes. It is everything one...

We chose the hotel as it offered bookable parking and we were drawn by the rooftop pool photos. Lindau is a quaint island in lake Konstanz connected by a short bridge to the main land. Parking would appear to be problematic unless pre booked and the hotels underground car park has limited spaces, so if you are travelling by car...

The Helvetia is a nice and clean hotel, with nice views of the lake, breakfast was nice and plenty of choice. Rooms are of a decent size and were very clean. It's very well kept and would come back again. It just misses a bar, as the only place to have a drink is in the restaurant.

We stayed one night on our way back home after spending time in the Bavarian Alps/Austrian Tirol where we had stayed in 5 * hotels so I have to be careful not to make direct comparisons. Generally, the staff were friendly enough but for me the hotel was lacking a few touches. For example, some of the doors and frames...

We stopped for dinner to watch a beautiful sunset overlooking the harbor and the lake with the alps in background. Food was excellent. Service was good only I noticed staff had trouble delivering to the right table. Steak was one of best we have had in Europe. Had a wonderful baked potato and delicious soup. A nice surprise since we...

I find that with boutique hotels that there is always something quirky or inconvenient. As long as you can deal with that... The location is great, right on the harbor. The extra parking is far away if you do not reserve parking at the hotel in time. The entrance and lobby is a bit cheap looking (feels motel-ish). The rooms...
