....A nicer escape at this value for money you can not get anywhere, except maybe in some remote areas up in Alaska, but here we have a million dollar view in a homely famliy run Hotel right on the lake. A rare thing in today's confused, overpriced and distorted Hotel market. The more you know about Hotels, the more you traveled the world across cultures one realizes, Less is More and this is the true art to discover. I am not at all impressed by so called unrealistic 7 star hotels that cost so much that you can never find sleep at those inflated prices. The Riviera is a rare remnant of classic down to earth Swiss Hotel tradition at its best, beautifully nestled in to a section of the lake. All this comes at a price that is almost related to a typo. And the best of all, the family who runs the place is omni present. The Swiss Hoteliers Jan and his lovely wife, Aanna are both well traveled and can tell you all about the best dive spots in Asia or exciting peaks to climb in Tibet. Next to the local lay of land sights to discover.
Their Restaurant is delicious, again at prices fair to the value. And then there is the one million dollar lake view, picture perfect. Swiss Hotel at its best, go try it out, its a must. Why: Because its simply honest, a rare breed those days within the inbred, twisted and most times inflated Hospitality scene. Almost forgot, reportedly George Clooney chilled on the terrace enjoying a glass of red, he parked his Harley outside and then continued to his home on Lake Como in Italy, only an iron seven away across the border. PS: Only one request please, a Queen size bed in number 12 :-)
