Stayed for 5 days in May. This place is what it's all about. amazing service, amazing staff, amazing rooms....try getting a $8000 Bang & Olufsen stereo at a Ritz or Four Seasons...you won't....every detail is incredibly thought out from the lighting scheme of the rooms to the whirlpool tub, balconies with AMAZING views of Chapel Bridge over the Rousse (sp?) and Mt. Pilatus peaking in the background. Step out and you are in the middle of SHOPPING HEAVEN!...amazing cafe's, shops, watches, chocolate, cameras, etc.etc..very close to the train station, close to the post office, close the the lake cruise boats....I can't say enough about this boutique hotel which in my opionin is 6 star luxury...way underrated. The other "big" hotels, are way too stuffy and don't have anywhere near the kind of view you get from the balconies at this hotel. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
