This was not the hotel we were suppose to stay at on our tour but we were in for a very plasant surprize. It had a very Grand Entrance and a lift that goes sideways to the next level where we got another lift to our room. Room was very nice with a view of the lake and also opening windows and a small balcony. Bath towels were very good but handtowels were like cotton and not very good to wipe your hands on. Beds were very comfortable. Didn't replace soap etc. when they cleaned the room the next day as we were there for two nights on our tour. Lovely evening meal and service was great. Had sweets in the Reception area for guests and the chairs in the lobby were very comfortable. This hotel is just a short walk to the village of Stesa where we had a lovely meal on our free night. Lovely views from the hotel across the lake and the gardens and pool are very nice. Didn't want to accept Credit Card from Tour Director for baggage as they wanted cash.
