The hotel is nice, rooms are clean and tidy. Central location with car park. The breakfast is great. The only thing is that it is very warm in the rooms despite fans available in all rooms. There is no air conditioned and the air doesn’t circulate which is why the rooms are hot. Very friendly and helpful staff.

I loved every thing about my stay at the Wettstein. The room was immaculate and extremely comfortable plus the staff were very helpful. I had a room over the garden which was quiet and I heard no noise from the adjoining rooms. Moreover, the breakfast was excellent and great value. It is definitely worth booking direct on the hotel website for the best price. Highly recommended and I can't wait to stay there again.
