“Good enough, but fantastic food from restaurant below”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is located along the lake at Ponte Tresa, so we had a nice view from our room, which opens up to a common balcony. The room was adequate. There was a queen sized bed and a sofa bed, and one bathroom. It's good for 2 couples or a family; but don't expect to get any privacy since it's all in one room. The room was clean and the hot water in the shower was consistent.

Our stay included breakfast, which was adequate. There was an assortment of pastries and cake, and coffee, tea, and yoghurt.

The highlight of our stay was the food from the restaurant below. There was a good range, and the food was excellent. The waiter even brought it up to our room at our request, and we had a lovely meal on the balcony, overlooking the lake, away from the noise of other restaurant patrons,

In summary, the room was decent for the price. But definitely, give the restaurant a try.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

The service, food, atmosphere at this hotel and restaurant was exceptional. We eat in the restaurant on three evenings and the staff were really welcoming along with English menus being available to help you decide. The staff on reception were always prompt and professional and there appeared to be a real sense of pride in their hotel.

Excellent stay in a town that is less busy, but equally, if not more beautiful than Lugano.
Hotel was exceptional value with decent size and very clean rooms. We were very to find this hotel and would recommend it to anyone.
