Lake side suite #24 was very nice. View of the lake and mountains from both the bed and the couch in the sitting area. Very beautiful. Hotel is directly on the lake road to Zurich, if you have a car. If not, you can catch a bus right outside the hotel for one stop to the train station and then... More

Staid for 5 nights and I picked the place because of Lake view and better prices then other locations in the area. I got a nice room, with no walk in shower but with Rainfall Shower. From my bed I had direct Lake view ! Even that there are two Restaurants below, it was quite at night. No AC, but... More

When I pay £123 a night, and after a 6 hour drive, I think it's only reasonable to expect the fan in my hotel room to work. At least I expect a more helpful response from the reception than 'it's broken'. A room with a sea view is lovely, but when it's 24 degrees inside and the local youths decide... More

Had one night there with a view of the lake. Very nice view, hotel a bit basic but compensated by very nice people. We arrived late and they were still happy to serve us a snack. The room is basic with a funny ventilator to cool the place down. The bed was a bit worn so was the bathroom. But... More

Very Good hotel, nice view over the lake during my breakfast. Only problem was no lift available, but the portier solved this very accurate by booking a room on the first floor. He even brought my luggage from the third to the first floor.

My wife and I had a quick lunch here. My "Geschnetzeltes" was very good with more and bigger pieces of veal and fewer mushrooms than other restaurants. The only quibble was the rösti was slightly overdone ie burnt but I didnt have time to send it back. My wife had the Caesar salad with prawns which was tasty and a... More

A pleasant dining room with stunning views. The staff spoke good English and wanted to ensure that everything was to our liking. The food was from a typical Swiss kitchen. I am not convinced that we would make a return visit.

This is a real first class find just outside of Zurich. The location is amazing on the lake. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The food is excellent. The staff are like family. Actually better then family. Attentive and accommodating. I have stay here three times and each time gets better.

Stayed here for one night on business. The hotel was great, with all amenities - comfy bed, clean room, INCREDIBLE view. But what really stood out was the staff. I've honestly never stayed anywhere with such a friendly, professional team - amazingly friendly and polite at all times, nothing felt like it was too much trouble, quite the opposite, they... More
