“A Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

All the great reviews are right and we endorse them. A very special place to stay - have not seen our Australian flag flying to welcome us before, or had complimentary drinks offered while we relax and complete a simple registration process, little touches that can make a huge difference. Freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast as well as all food served to perfection. We enjoyed the staff and owner, who could not do enough to make sure our visit to his lodge and Bariloche was all it could be. Only complaint was the wet, cold weather but so happy we could relax in our room, enjoy the spa, fire, views and comfort.

We stayed at the lodge for 3 nights in December. Tiziana, the manager, was absolutely fantastic. She made us feel at home and really wanted us to enjoy our stay. Our room was #17, a deluxe suite. (note-there was no room number on the door. It was a handicap room off of the main entrance.) I was not too excited with the room (no fireplace, heat didn't work at first, no privacy in the jacuzzi area with the window being on the walkway..) I was told all rooms were taken so we had to take this one. (Heat was fixed in a few hours.) We loved the location and enjoyed using the bus to explore the area. Our breakfast included was beautiful with great choices of food. Tiziana coordinated our included dinner and allowed us to eat at 7pm, earlier than expected and asked if we wanted a special location. We chose the top floor. Well, on the night of our special dinner (to celebrate our anniversary!), nothing was ready! No one was prepared for us. It went downhill from there. We left during the meal as we didn't seem to be expected for dinner. We were both so disappointed. We met some lovely couples also staying at the lodge. One even said they were upgraded to a huge place! (and here we are just asking to switch rooms.) So, overall, the property is LOVELY. Tiziana was so compassionate and really wanted it to go smoothly. After a couple of issues were handled, everything seemed to have worked out ok. Our view was lovely from our room. The owner, Alberto, was so nice also......

Incredible view, great rooms and excellent service! Really great, warm, cozy place with an amazing view of the water and mountains. Immediately upon arriving we wanted to extend our stay - not possible though! Easy access to a pebble beach and great food. We ended our 10 days Argentina trip in Bariloche and Charming was a nice relaxing time. Santiago is the man!

It's difficult to add much to the vast majority of the reviews. This place is fantastic and highly recommended.

We stumbled across it while driving along the edge of the lake and for our first night in town, we chose another option. For a second night, we thought what the heck, let's treat ourselves.

Check-in was a fantastic experience - welcoming drink and view of the lake were just perfect. Our room was magnificent - the glorious bed, the sauna, the steam room/shower with whizzy lights was trippy. We didn't even make it to the spa!

Highly recommended for a special time!

Great hotel, at first we were worried we were a little too far from Bariloche but this turned out to be a blessing as the town itself isn't that pretty. Although it is quite easy to catch a bus outside the hotel and only takes about 15 mins to downtown. We upgraded to a Master suite for not that much more as a treat and I must say our room was spectacular, the view from our bed was simply awesome. We extended our stay by an extra night just to take full advantage of the peace and quiet, wonderful. I had a massage which was ok but not sure it was worth the money and was a little awkward in my room. However, the best part of this hotel though is definitely the service. Nothing was too much trouble. The manager Tiziana helped us book our trip onwards to Chile and gave great advice and tips. The staff are really great and many hotels can learn a lot! The best start to our trip we could have asked for!

Truly one of the most beautiful hotels I have been to. The suite we stayed in was perfect in every way - wood panelled charm with a stunning view of the lake. Serene and cosy yet with every comfort. The owner and the team that runs the resort are wonderful people - we had several conversations with the owner, who made us feel like we were staying at his home instead of just a hotel. He shared the story of how he designed and built this hotel and it sounds like a labour of love - and you can tell, with every detail taken care of. The quality of the furnishings in the room are also top notch. I cannot rate this hotel highly enough and can't wait to go back!
