We enjoyed a very pleasant meal here in the main restaurant recently. Attentive service and well cooked food. We both passed on starters and went for fish and a dessert. The dover sole was well cooked and partnered with new potatoes and spinach. A bottle of Puligny Montrachet was sublime and accompanied the fish perfectly. Desserts were good with the... More

We're locals. Been here for coffee a few times. Tried this out for a dinner. Excellent. Super service, great food. Small menu, but something for all tastes. Mrs. R had excellent dial special; a trio of fish. I had the local speciality, Zurich Geschnetzeltes, chopped veal.

I discovered this nice restaurant by chance for a Monday lunch and it turned out just perfect. They have a very nice terrasse out on the lake, very calm and relaxing. Apparently they have given their whole restaurant's interior and outdoor design a brush-up and it looks amazing. The food is good and considering prices that are usually seen around... More

There are rooms to the lake (even room numbers) and rooms to the road (uneven room numbers). I strongly would advise not to take rooms at road-side as in the morning there is always heavy traffic. WLAN in the rooms is included. Breakfast is ok but not more. Staff is very friendly.

Very nice building and nicely decorated. The rooms on the street are noise, but the bigger problem was the fact that the rooms didn't have air-conditioning. It was the heat that kept us awake, not the noise of the street. The breakfast was nice. Too bad they couldn't give us fresh prepared eggs. During the breakfast there was some very... More

It's a very pretty hotel in a beautiful location. But the highlight was the staff, who went out of their way to be helpful. They corrected any problems very quickly. And there was a charming man who served us at breakfast, who spoke perfect English and was extremely friendly. We really enjoyed our stay.

This very nice hotel located directly at Lake of Zürich is overlooking a small and quiet little harbor. The rooms are very nice and comfortable with all amenities which you need. The personal and the owners are very friendly and helpful. The hotel has two restaurants with outstanding food and a nice selection of mainly excellent local wines. The service... More

Fine hotel, but I had a room on the road side and it was noisy. I could not open a window for the noise, and woke up early because of the cars driving by right under my window. Breakfast was absolutely fine, and the ferry to the other side of the lake is ver close. Next time, i will have... More
