Just got back from a two course lunch of pumpkin soup and beef fillet with lovely vegetables for a set price of 33 CHf. With water and coffees it was less than 90CHF for 2 people ,which is a good price next to Zurich lake at lunch time. Nice waitress, no rush, we could have sat there for hours...

We have been coming here every couple of years when we drive through or stay in Switzerland. It has a very cute feeling, like a niche boutique hotel, but it's very professional. I also took a swim in the lake in the morning. Where do you get that? Sure, it's not cheap, but for Switzerland I find it rather affordable.... More

The hotel is fine. The rooms are basic. Slightly dated, as is the hotel overall. The views across the lake from the room I stayed in and the veranda are superb. The hotel is within walking distance of the train station (up a hill) and you can easily walk to a number of restaurants. We took a stroll by the... More

The views of the lake are stunning. The location could not be better. The terrace has one of the best views of the lake available anywhere. However the waiter was not friendly and seem to be overextended. The food was ok, not fabulous as it could bd given the prestige and location. We did not stay overnight, just ate at... More

Checkin was very smooth and the staff were friendly and helpful answering all questions and responding to requests in a polite and efficient manner. Our room was clean, tidy and over looks the lake, intact was even a... More
