The hotel is in a lovely central location in Melide which is only a very small town with very few places to eat, so a car is useful, or if you prefer not to lose your parking space of which there only a few allocated to the hotel, the bus service into Lugano and other areas is very good.
The hotel is on the lake edge with stunning views over Lake Lugano. A room with a lake view is highly recommended, and beautiful to wake up to and sit out on. The room although basic, was adequate and beautifully clean, and the owners pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was plentiful, and there is a nice terrace just across the narrow road to enjoy coffee or evening drinks. The sunbeds provided on the jetty on the lake edge were welcome for a relaxing snooze or read. Our only criticism although small, would be that tea making facilities are made available in the rooms for the early morning cup of tea, or late night coffee. We considered the hotel to be extremely good value for money, in a country that is quite expensive.
