Booked in here for overnight stop en route from greece to U.K. Very clean, large rooms and super comfortable beds. Check in easy at midnight. Quiet but close to motorway. Only caveat is that finding it in the dark coming from Italy is not easy- better directions would be appreciated

Well done Motel, with nice rooms and good Restaurant. The Breakfast-Buffet (included in the rate) is one of the best I ever had in a transit Motel! I even would choose this Motel for excursions out of the Leventina.

An ideal stop on the way to or from Italy. Efficient reception, comfortable rooms and decent beds. Breakfast is average but still good enough. Price is on the (too) high side, the unfavorable euro/swiss franc probably plays a role here.
