The view from the hotel was stunning but it could do with a makeover to match the view! My room had adequate space but a little tired in places however it was clean and the bed comfortable. The bathroom was fine if a little 80s coloured :) There was no A/C in the room but it did have a fan... More

The only good thing about this hotel is the view, as it's facing the lake and mountain. But, once you are inside, you will forget about all of those things. I stayed there because my tour booked this hotel, and it seems make the service even worse. Breakfast choice is poor, dinner is very bad, no heater in the room,... More

The hotel is in a perfect location for a stop and go. The lake view is relaxing. The triple room we had was not so great. Big enough but everything was old... In addition there was a bad smell probably caused by the carpet. Fine for a 3 stars, not for a 4... Breakfast was honest, even if the cheeses... More

i absolutely loved this hotel; it is beautiful with stunning views from every angle. The rooms were so cute that it's one of the few hotels that I have ever had to photograph. It was clean, comfortable and I found the staff to be quite nice. We were booked as part of a group so this was booked through our... More

On the road from here to there a surprisingly all-round Swiss luxury hotel.Rooms are good, quiet though nearby the road. Restaurant pleasant and friendly service. Have returned several times. A great place for German and Dutch travelers to take a deserved break from traffic home.

My friend and I togethere with our tourmates had stayed on this hotel for 3nights. The hotel location is about 30 - 45 minutes drive from the city but is along the high way and it is easy to locate. Parking space is available, coffee shop, wired internet with pay, restaurant and a 24 hours customer service front desk assistant.... More

A beautiful view of Lake Lucern! Hotel was booked by tour agency. Service was very average as we were treated as "group" which is a bit bias as we did not stay at the hotel for free. It was disappointing as the location is beautiful.

Loved it! Very charming hotel in the middle of the Swiss Alps and on the lake. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The food at the restaurant was very good as well... Surprising... But good. I was only here one night during a tour, but I really enjoyed my stay. Everyone working at the hotel was very nice, and accommodating.... More

We spent two nights at this hotel as part of our tour. We loved the views from both sides of the hotel - one of the Lake Lucerne and the other of the mountainside complete with content grazing cows. Had our meals in the hotel and they were completely adequate. Nice clean rooms. Went for a lovely long walk after... More
