            Exellent staff, good dinner, good breakfast, free parking, enough space in the room. My son had birthday and hotel made surprise for him. It was very nice.

            In our room we heard noise of water and canalisation from the next room and from corridor. Spa is a bit small. We draemed about inside swimming pool, outwide pool was cold for that weather. Price 400 CHF for room (2 ad+1 child) for 4 stars hotel on BB is a bit high.

          • Couple
            5.0

            nice terrace, good views, nice garden, surprisingly quiet for switzerland (no train, plane or street noise, just noisy hotel guests due to cheaply isolated rooms....), food was quite ok for a four star hotel. the native ticino hotel staff were very nice in opposite to the fake (business) smiles from the german ladies at the reception.

            Reserving the hotel via Booked.net made 100% sure that we had our double room right next to the noisy maid's room, as usual. as soon as we arrived reception was very keen to point out all the things that cost extra (like internet, pets, etc.). the mini size of bathroom should be in the guinness book of world records (or how to squash every last penny out of a client by packing as many in one building as possible). i have never seen so many fake building materials used in a hotel: fake marble floors, fake plastic room doors, fake wood. Maybe they made the foundation of the hotel out of lego to save money and cut corners? we ordered a coupe denmark at room service, it took about 40 minutes to arrive. when it arrived, there was one small scoup of ice cream totally melted with some chocolate. price: 13 Swiss frances plus room service charges....

            Comfortable for a hiking experience but outdated

            Designe is old and too expensive for th type of sErvices

            The hotel, room and the spa facilities were first class. After a hard day's work, I appreciated the pool and spa bath. I will definitely return with my partner for a long weekend break. The service was first class from the reception to the breakfast. Excellent!

          • Group of friends
            6.6

            warm welcome, relaxing atmoshpere, good breakfast, friendly staff, nice pool area

            Ask for a room on a higher floor, possibly a corner room as they have little balconies. Rooms are really small. Might be worth booking a room with lakeview.

          • Single
            8.2

            The pool and room were very good.

            The service at breakfast was bad. Had to keep approaching the waiters to get their attention.

          • Family with children
            8.2

            Comfortable environment, staff are friendly and welcoming.

            Bed matress is not comfortable and breakfast has a limited choice.

            Very good Hotel, very polite and helpful staff. I could recommend this Hotel and will stay there once more.

            Awesome. Should be a 5 star Hotel. We got upgraded when we arrived and had a huge comfort room. The food is excellent, the service is fantastic. You can grap a bicycle to explore the surrounding (try the eBikes).
