In Lindau, the Bayerischer Hof is quite nice (my review if you wish is here.)

The location can't be beat.

The other top option in Lindau is Vilino. It and options in Fussen are covered in the Wiki.

We stayed at the Hotel Garni Gästehaus Edlhuber in Mittenwald. We stayed at the Schloss Restaurant Nueschwanstein it is on the road to the castle from the town and it is only a five minute walk to the castle. You can drive up to the Restaurant/ hotel and they give you a parking pass.
Here is the link to web site.

Hotel Jagerhaus is related to this hotel, and is a little nicer. Stay there, but eat at Muller. Another strong recommendation for the Bayerischer Hof in Lindau from me

We stayed this past July at the Wiedeman in Fussen. Nice restaurant. Sits up a hill overlooking Fussen. I think a 3 star about E$125 when we booked late with others filling up.

Fussen is a great little town (obviously touristy) with lots of shops and restaurants about 5 minutes from the castles.

+1 for Schloss Restaurant Nueschwanstein. We stayed there Oct 2010. It was so nice to NOT have to walk all the way up to the castle.

We stayed and ate at the Hotel Muller last May. It is immediately next to the castle ticket office, and they have off street parking - and the Hotel staff will pick up your castle tour tickets for you. The staff treated us like royalty, and we'd go back there without hesitation. It was the most enjoyable hotel we stayed at in our 11 day ED. The hike up to Neuschwanstein is great exercise - and you can go partway up on trails, then the rest via the road.

We were also extremely pleased with the Hotel Müller. When I told then that it was my wife's birthday and received a little better service than the other guests.

If you'd rather stay in the town of Fussen I'd recommend Hotel Christine. Top-notch service, an owner with personality, and a very nice complimentary breakfast.

Lots of Hotel Mueller fans here! We have a reservation there next month while we tour the castles. Unfortunately, no discount even if your last name is Mueller. Anyone know what time breakfast is served? I want to book tickets to the castles online, the earlier the better to avoid the crowds. Looks like 8AM is the earliest you can book a tour, so could we get to the castle tour by 8 and still take advantage of the hotel's breakfast? Also, should we contact the hotel to make a reservation for dinner at the restaurant, or should we be able to get in no problem as a hotel guest on a Wednesday night in early July? Thanks so much for any help!

For those who don't want to walk up the hill to Schloss Neuschwanstein (a 40-45 minute uphill hike), there is a small tour bus at Schloss-Hotel Lisl that will take you up to Marien Brücke (Mary's Bridge). It takes only a few minutes and costs only €1.80. There are stunning views of Neuschwanstein, the Alpsee, and the surrounding countryside, so if you're going to Neuschwanstein, you might as well go all the way to the bridge. From there you can walk a short distance (10-15 minutes) down to Schloss Neuschwanstein and then walk back down from the castle. The walk down takes only about 20 minutes. You can also take the bus back down for only €1.00. Round trip is €2.60.

You can also take a horse-drawn carriage both up and down for €6.00 and €3.00 respectively

We took the bus up to Marien Brücke and walked down (Rick Steve's recommendation). It was threatening rain and was very humid, and I don't do well with either hills or humidity. We walked down faster than the horse-drawn carriage made the trip.

If you're planning on doing the tours of both Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau they book your tours 3 hours apart, with Neuschwanstein first. The ticket center is at the bottom of the hill and you need to get up to Neuschwanstein, do the actual guided tour (no self-tours), get back down, and then walk up another shorter hill 20 minutes in the opposite direction to Hoehenschwangua. Your tours will be assigned for a specific time, so depending on crowds, you may end up waiting in the courtyard at Neuschwangau for your tour. Because of all of this, plan a minimum of 4-5 hours to see both castles. They claim that if you miss your tour time at either castle you will have to buy a new ticket.

We did the Neuschwanstein tour but didn't have enough time for the Hohenschwangau tour. We definitely enjoyed both Marien Brücke and the Neuschwanstein tour. It is best if you have already taken or plan to take the Schloss Linderhof tour.

Ditto. We were very impressed with the staff there as well. They acquired tickets to the two castles for us so that we didn't have to wake up early and stand in line. The line to buy tickets looked pretty long the next morning as we walked past it.

On our next ED, we plan on returning.

Add us to the Hotel Mueller Fan Club. We stayed there in late April 2011. Courteous and friendly staff, excellent food, nice rooms, and rock-solid wifi. When we head back we'll stay there again. In the evening, you can walk down to the end of the street and sit on benches overlooking the Alpsee: a lake with the Alps in the background. Very relaxing.

As far as breakfast, I forget when they open. We didn't get up that early. I think they serve til 10:00.

They recommend a reservation, but when we went down to eat, the restaurant wasn't full. However, we were there (April 2011) ahead of the tourist season. In July/August, it may be an issue. I doubt you'd have to make a reservation days in advance, but I'd make a reservation when you check in just to be safe.

It depends on the tour bus groups. They tend to all eat at the same time.

We ate breakfast at Hotel Muller around 7:00 AM each day - and I don't recall them being open for breakfast much before that hour. So... a nice leisurely breakfast, and then getting up to the castle by 8:00 AM would be very tight.

Last May, our tour started with Hohenschwangau, followed by Neuschwanstein. Hohenschwangau is only a 5 minute (easy) walk from Hotel Muller. It only took us 20 minutes to hike up to Neuschwanstein. It is great exercise and helps make room for a wonderful dinner at the Hotel!

I'd go ahead and make a reservation for dinner just to be safe. They may even let you reserve a table in the atrium room with the view of Neuschwanstein.

We stayed at Hotel Sonne which is in Fussen, very nice. Reserved parking spot in garage, great and I mean great breakfast. Staff was very cordial. Also you can walk around the town since it's in Fussen proper. As others have said get to castles early to secure a ticket or reserve ahead. Best part about Fussen is the nice postal workers who delivered our postcards back to the states even though we used the german postcard stamps and not the international ones.

This is where we stayed a couple of weeks ago. +1 on the breakfast! Rated #1 on TripAdvisor for hotels in Füssen. Many rooms are individually decorated and there are pictures of all of the room on their website so you can pick your room. We stayed in the "Hohes Schloss" room with a nice balcony overlooking their terrace area. A bonus was the free front-load washer and dryer in the basement next to the elevator from the garage, just buy a couple tabs of soap at the front desk for €1, good for two loads. Plan ahead for the dryer though as it takes forever to dry the clothes!

It's also just a few short blocks to a fine Italian restaurant, Il Pescatore, also rated #1 on TripAdvisor for restaurants in Füssen. We went on a Sunday night and it was one of the few restaurants open. They don't take credit cards, so be prepared.

Pics: View from entry hall, view from entry hall showing balcony, view from balcony looking down, entry hall with ample closet and suitcase stand, reserved parking spot:
