“It's a great place to stay too!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

Our family stayed at this little place and we were very pleased. We were unable to east in the restaurant because it was full with reservations. But the rooms were simple, clean, safe. It's a shared toilet, but showers in your own room. There is no breakfast, but they do leave some pastries if you are interested. The best part is the incredible view from our room. It was like waking to heaven, but better. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. Would heartily recommend a stay here.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

The view from the balcony of the restaurant and the bedrooms is worth the price of the stay alone (£59pn). It really is a restaurant with rooms - the food is fantastic with a good selection of local wine. The 4 rooms are all very small - all have a shower but share just one toilet. If you get the twin room make sure you are less than about 5'8" as the beds are very short!!!!! Gandria is very pretty and worth walking round - there is a frequent ferry to Lugano and other points on the lake.

The views of Lake Lugano from our balcony were simply stunning. We had a picnic dinner on the balcony one night, just taking it all in. The hotel was very affordable, though be warned; it is quite a hike to downtown Lugano (if you are interested in doing that). There is very limited bus service on Sundays; somewhat better on Saturdays. It is easier (though certainly not impossible!) to stay here if you have a car. Our hostess (her name escapes me now, we stayed in Oct 2012) was just wonderful. She made such an effort to speak with us in English which was nice. The rooms are very small and simple, but if you are in Lugano Switzerland, why are you in your room?? :) The restaurant also serves tasty food, so make sure to try it out.

Room Tip: I believe that all the rooms except for one have a balcony overlooking Lake Lugano, so keep an eye o...
