The hotel is lovely and old-fashioned, just as I like it. The staff was very good and the room facing the lake spacious and airy with a little balcony. But beware: if you are noise sensitive you might be disturbed by the sound of the road below. However, closing the balcony door at night solves this problem.
We wanted to have a nightcap in Harry's Bar but the noise levels were much too high and so we left this out. Then we wanted to have a smoke but were told that smoking is only allowed outside. Not being able to smoke inside in a 5 star hotel is totally incomprehensible to us as most 5 star hotels we have visited here in Switzerland either have a fumoir or you are allowed to smoke in certain rooms.
Breakfast was fine but CHF 40 for what was actually on offer (nothing our of the ordinary) was much too expensive.
