This really is a lovely hotel and fabulous location for #5 on a 16 day euro roadtrip. Parking was easy in the lay by just by the pedestrian crossing lights. Rooms were really nice, and service was excellent. We had a lovely meal and gorgeous wine finished off sitting on the roof terrace viewing the lit up castle at night. Castle and surrounds were right on the doorstep. Take the lifts to the top and take a leasurely stroll down taking in the castle features as you go. Bard is also a great stop off from Geneva through to Lake Garda.
