A nice property ruined by an arrogant manager. One Mr Walter Kendall , who was introduced to us as the manager, said he could do anything he pleased with the hotel including changing the timings mentioned in the guest brochure in the room. The brochure clearly mentions that dinner will be served till 9.30 pm, but we were refused at... More

Hot, dirty and upsetting. What a sad waste of our time in such a beautiful location. The hotel claimed that it had climate control and that was a lie, it was NO Air Conditioning, stagnant and uncomfortable.There was a promise of laundry facilities, which simply do not exist. Room was dirty and stay was unpleasant! The servers in the restaurant... More

Beautiful lakes view but the room are stuffy and no a.c. We was in room 104 on the ground floor. They dont provide a.c or fans. The bathroom are small and are kind of dated. I would recommend another hotel. The local area i nice but everything closest very early.

A wonderful stay. The staff did everything they could to make me and my colleagues from around the world (there were more than 60 of us at a conference), comfortable and happy. Service always with a big, genuine smile - not just phoney 'professional' politeness, but warm and welcoming. Our room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The duvet and... More

I have stayed at this hotel more than a dozen times,unfortunately the accountants have been in and penny pinched. The restaurant used to be highlight of a long journey from UK to Italy ,however it was very average,but expensive,breakfast was not up to standard of previous years, Reception staff messy.

My colleagues and I stayed at this beatiful lake side hotel during our incentive trip. The staffs are so warm and helpful, especialy at dinner time they were so attentive to our need. On one dinner the chef asked us how about the dinner was. We said it was a great and delicious dinner. Delicious sausages. And then the chef... More

Stayed for two days only, just to relax by the lake. Hotel was built in the 80's, however if you don't mind that style it's a nice place. We stayed half board, and were pleasantly surprised that they reserved the best tables for the half board guests, rather than the restaurant guests, so we had a perfect, uninterrupted view of...

Stopped over en route from UK to Italy. This charming hotel is right on the shores of Lake Lucerne, just a short drive off the main through route. Good parking within the hotel grounds, and a nice welcome from the reception staff. Situated in a lakeside residential area. We were upgraded from a mountain view room to a lake view... More

We have booked an overnight stay at this hotel on Booking.com and travelled three hours to it on Saturday morning. We have arrived together with our dog, which was accepted as per Booking.com. At check in, the receptionist has suddenly announced that they will charge us 25CHF for our dog and said we are lucky they accept dogs altogether. We... More
