Great location on the lake and fantastic views, but apart from the very cool and stylish wine tasting room everything is quite 80s which at the prices they charge keeps me from giving a higher rating. Lovely staff though at reception including doorman and concierge. Breakfast was ok, service there rather abrupt and only speaking Italian (it´s still Switzerland, so...

High standard staff, polite and proactive. Very nice position in front of the lake. Large, cozy and comfortable rooms. Elegant and old fashion atmosphere, a bit regretting its old glory. High quality of food and standing meal. Wide range of wines and excellent service for dinner. Abundant buffet for breakfast. Very good hotel for business and relax.

Although this happened in February I want to share that an afternoon at this hotel for British Tea Time was quite enjoyable and at a good price. A good selection of teas. Unfortunately the event scheduled up to 31 March was ended on 19 February due to lack of interest. I put this down to: insufficient publicity, fear by local...

My wife and I spent the Easter weekend over there. We were on the 5th floor in the new section with an incredible view over the lake. The sun was rising directly in our giant patio window.

My wife and I felt like royalty from the moment we walked in. The hotel is immaculate, luxurious, but also feels like you are taking a step back in time to the grand hotels of the late 19th/early 20th century. The hotel is right on the lake and about a 10 minute walk to the center of town. Breakfast was...

When dreams - and I am talking about beautiful dreams, possibly the best dreams - come true, it means that the five stars are real and shine in the sky of old-fashioned but fully contemporary luxury hospitality. In a few words, I love this hotel! With its late nineteenth century architectural style and decors, it welcomes all guests in its...
