We stayed in a signature room with balcony and lake view (room 318) - although when looking at the pictures on the hotel website I think we actually stayed in a signature junior suite. The room was magnificent in every way. Bathroom was superb, with both a bathtub and separate shower. Large foyer with closets and space to store suitcases. Good size living area with balcony, sofa, coffee table, and a desk/dining table. Good bedroom with a the most comfortable king size bed. Bedroom also has a separate balcony. The TV swivels around, so can either point to the living area or the bedroom area. Room was super clean, and very well designed. Made you feel very welcome and comfortable. The room was so good we where reluctant to leave. Excellent service. Great food. Valet parking. Hotel was not operating full capacity because of COVID i.e. most restaurants closed, despite that our stay was possibly the best stay we have had in any hotel. I can only imagine what it is like when all services and restaurants are available. All this luxury does not come cheap, but it is well worth the money. We will return - in fact I have already booked a weekend in June (we live in Switzerland).

Porto Ronco, Switzerland1191 contributions135 helpful votes
Even though it was pouring and freezing cold we had a wonderful stay. Shame though that only one restaurant was open for dinner, food was delicious but the atmosphere a little bit sad with no tablecloths. It would have been great to have had our dinner at the Palmeraie, lovely restaurant but it was just for breakfast, so we ended up having our two dinners at the Terrasse du Petit Palais. As I said though, service and food was great, wine excellent. Since all the other restaurants and bars were closed we couldn't have our usual after dinner drink and that was also a shame. No fault of the hotel though but probably the COVID situation. Lovely room, very clean, great view. The SPA was not completely open but the jacuzzi, sauna and Turkish bath were great. Very clean with lovely thick towels. We are surely coming back. Thank you to all the staff.

- The room with the lake view is absolutely fantastic - the hotel overall is very nice and the location is also great - the personell was very friendly 2 things that didn't live up to the standard of the rest (thats why I deducted one point) - the dinner was a bit of a disappointment: the food was good, but outside on the terrasse it was to cold and most of the heaters didn't work, so we had to move inside when a table became available, but inside it smelled terrible from the kitchen (oil smell like in a cheap imbiss) and the noise level was very high - the Wellness area was also disappointing: pool was closed, which we only learned 2 days before our stay and the spa area being divided for men and women, but how shall you then enjoy a nice romantic weekend? Everyone was then cramped into the very small relaxation room with 4 double beds as it was the only area to relax and also be together... not really well thought out as the rest is very spacious but has no relaxation area for bad weather

For a hotel that is, summa summarum, quite expensive, it just didn’t cut it. It’s quite old, the rooms are quite small and the SPA is outdated. At those prices it aims to compete with similar lake view hotels which it quite frankly fails to do. On a positive note, the staff is incredibly friendly which is why we can’t rate it as poor.
