This is a delightful 2 star hotel with a glorious view over the lake of Lugano, and the advantage, in winter, of full sunshine all day - unusual in Switzerland for mountains not to get in the way! The hotel is built according to ecological principals - mainly out of wood. The simple rooms face south, and all have a view. There is a small swimming pool in which to cool off in the summer. The restaurant has a wonderful fire place burning logs, which makes it very cosy in the winter. The food is well prepared, and they are very happy to serve groups of up to 25 for lunch.
