We spent two nights here in May. The outside is not pretty but the inside is great. What really makes this hotel stand out is the view and the amazing employees. From helping with pre-trip plans to arranging a boat tour of the lake everyone we can in contact with went above

My husband and I spent 3 nights in May after a Rhine River cruise. I was so excited to find out that Monograms had booked us a lake view room with a balcony. Our room was small with only a double bed which was VERY firm, but it was still wonderful. Some of the other rooms had

Very disappointed in this hotel - having read great reviews we decided to book for our wedding anniversary weekend You are paying for the central location overlooking the lake. Everything else is at best 2/3 star although the rooms are clean. The view is lovely but that's the

Dear Hudham, thank you for posting a review. We are disappointed to know that you did not fully enjoy your stay with us on this special occasion of your anniversary. We normally pride ourselves on the excellent comments received about our service and hospitality, as also confirmed by yourself, having read great reviews about the hotel. In fact only 23 reviews out of a total of 628 are ranked "poor" or less. I am also very surprised that you did not file a single complaint with us during your whole stay. Upon check-out, we asked you if you enjoyed your stay and everything seemed to have been to your liking. The issues you refer to in your review are all minor incidents and we would have been more than happy to solve them for you during your stay. It is a missed opportunity for us not being able to have the pleasure of assisting you and a great pity that now all I can do is apologize for any shortcomings on our behalf. Should we have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the future, please reach out to me personally and I will ensure you a flawless return. Yours sincerely, Robert Webber - GM
