We chose the de la Posta in preference to the better known Carina Carlton in the same village, which used to be excellent but which, judging by TripAdvisor and other reviews and feedback, seems to be in serious decline. The de la Posta is only a modest Albergo but it was comfortable enough for a four nights stay. It was rather hot during our stay and there is no air-conditioning, but a fan was provided instead. TV reception is limited to three Swiss channels. Reception staff were friendly and helpful, but be aware that you will need to climb two spiral stair cases to reach the bedrooms. The hotel’s restaurant deservedly enjoys a good reputation, although service on the first night was surly and unfriendly. Breakfast offerings were modest but adequate. Two minor gripes: no bars of soap were provided and instead you’ll have to make do with a pathetic little sachet of bath gel instead. Surely they could do better. Secondly, a hair dryer would be helpful. Other than that we enjoyed our stay. Albeit a bit touristy during the high season, Morcote, on Lake Lugano, is a picturesque little village. You can easily get to Lugano by boat, or by the frequent AutoPostale bus services
