“Avoid! It is not a 4-star hotel!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012 via mobile

It is not a 4 star hotel! Small rooms, tiny swimming pool. Avoid room number 39! There is a small window in the corner, it is just a 4 wall room! There is nothing to put the suitcases on and The glasses are plastic, it is really shame that it is 4 star hotel, it should be only 2!

Beautiful, traditional hotel, nicely decorated in a great setting with a swimming pool and pretty terrace and garden which was a plus. Rooms lovely with great views. Clean and comfortable and quite good value. Staff friendly and efficient. Breakfast not good - the bread was inedible and ham, cheese, eggs not refilled so needed to get up early if you want maximum choice - which was not good, it's a shame about the breakfast as the hotel is lovely. Only 5 minutes walk to the lake to a couple of other restaurants and bars - really nice.

Room Tip: Ask for room looking over the swimming pool to get maximum views

After travelling from Lake Como to Lugano and collecting a hire car we wanted a hotel just out of Lugano where we could relax before continuing our journey. This hotel is in a quiet, pretty village, walking distance to Lake Lugano. It is elevated with a lovely outlook and very quiet. It only took about 30 minutes to get there from Lugano and as it is on the Italian side of the lake, less expensive than staying on the Swiss side. Very spacious, clean room. Comfortable beds. Pleasant breakfast. We enjoyed our stay. Very good value.

Room Tip: We asked for a balcony with the room and were on the first floor overlooking the pool The balcony g...

We had a good stay at the Caronline Hotel. It was a good en affordable place to stay on our way to tuscany. The room was simple, but with a beautiful view over the Lugano-lake. The shower whas small en the pressure of the showerwater low. Breakfast was great. Good food and really good coffee, especially the cappuccino!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

Stayed here in Sept 2012
The staff in all departments were incredibly helpful. They tried to get a TV channel showing a football match i wanted to watch and although unsuccessful (the new owners had recently bought the hotel and had inherited problems with Sky from the previous owners) they tried for at least 15 minutes which was more than I could have asked for.
Free wifi in the lobby, terrace and poolside, Sky channels on TV inc Sky News for free.
Although 4 star they had a pizzeria, so you could get a main course for 7 euros.
Easy access (by car) good parking and nice pool.
New owners seem to be making a good job of it.

This hotel was extremely nice. Nostalgic looking, with clean, decent sized rooms. The balcony overlooked an amazing scene - mountainous lake, little villas. The staff was helpful, the breakfast was OK (nothing special) and the internet worked well. The only downside was that the hotel was not near anything. We had a car and there wasn't even anything within a short drive. If you want a relaxing, beautiful place to get a good night's sleep, this would be perfect.

A peaceful location set back from the lakeside. Particularly helpful staff, bi-lingual, as our car had broken down. Full marks for their efforts. Comfortable room good view over lake. Restaurant offering a la carte and pizza and a decent dark beer, Wish we could have spent more time in the area.
