restaurant staff where very nice and helpful
its opposite station and reception couldn’t explain how to get to hotel as its not visible or sign posted. no curtains, just shutters, room was very hot and air con didn’t work. frustrating room with everything you wanted on other side of the room. was well priced but even though i could only get wi fi in bar and only then after about ten minutes, they just dismissed it.
All was perfect. Good location, nice staff. Very cool man working in the bar:) He recommended us great Ticino wines and gave some chocolates and snacks free of charge.
WiFi in the room was sometimes too weak.
close to train station
Funicular to downtown under renovation but funibus instead still OK
I can't understand why there's nobody to carry the luggage
The hotel is right next to the train station so it is really helpful especially if you want to visit other cities or the fox town outlet. The area is really safe and there is nothing to worry about. Staff were extremely helpful and pleasant and also they speak English which is a big plus. I would defenately recommend this hotel to anybody. Good quality of dinner and breakfast.
The hotel does not offer lunch but only dinner. Dinner is really nice though.
Almost everything . Mr room no 30 was a huge one with windows on the front as well on the side , beside a balcony opening out on the front , with spectacular views of the lake and the city . The toilet was spacious with all modern fittings . Complementary breakfast at the beautiful restaurant was indeed a treat .The location is perfect , just a walking distance from the train station which can be covered in 5 mins . The staff , at both the reception and the restaurant was very cooperative and friendly . I would certainly recommend this place to all travellers . It was indeed a grand stay for me from 15th to 17th Nov 2014 at this classic hotel .
They should tea and coffee making facilities in the room .
Good location very near to the station, although a bit far from the center and the lake, but for me it's enough. Very good staff with great hospitality. Also perfect view from the window!

Rail Station too close to the hotel
Accommodations and staff were exceptional. Wish we could have stayed longer. The weather upset our plans.
staff restaurant breakfast grounds in house winery
not on the lke (but great views) the cobbled driveway up the hill to reception (too hard to pull a bag)
Wonderful hotel, great location, nice and friendly stuff. We stated here only for one night and enjoyed everything in this hotel. Looks very luxury, great interior, garden and a pool area. Breakfast was so good! Parking is free and there are always free spots. Many thanks to the hotel personnel!!! Will come back here for sure!
The room we were eventually given, on the top floor, overlooking the garden was outstanding, large beautifully decorated with an excellent bathroom. The pool looked to be excellent (we did not use it) and the gardens are beautiful and spacious. The young man who checked us in made every effort to find us a good room and succeeded. He also offered good advice about where to go for dinner and advised us about the bus service.
When built, in the late 1800s, next to the railway station, this must have been an excellent hotel. That proximity is now a drawback. The views to the lake are ruined by the station and undisciplined development. The first room we were offered was dark and dingy. My wife said she would rather sleep in the car. The second and third were little better. On entering the hotel feels like an institution or youth hostel. The location is a problem. It is high above the lake thus most of the restaurants. We could walk down but to return would be a serious climb. The taxi charged €20. There is a bus and we saw a railway (not apparently running at 7:30pm).
we arrived late in the evening by train and had no problem finding the hotel due to its convienent location. ate at the restaurant in the hotel. service was wonderful, as was the food. slept really well, bed was very comfortable. hotel is beautiful and classic.
near to train station
location on the mountain bed was not comfortable e.g water kettle no basic services
The refurbishment of the hotel means that you now have an excellent modern hotel while retaining its olde world setting. The staff were friendly and the food and accommodation good. Adjacent to the train station was a definite positive.
While the hotel had no control over it, the taxi fare from the city centre to the hotel was overly priced for such a journey.
Very close to local train station so that you can haul luggages easily.
little hard to find
This hotel is excellent in all ways--location, staff, very nice room with all needed amenities. First class. Everything is exceptional at this hotel.
The park, proximity to center
Close to the train station. Good restaurant, try the own production Merlot. Friendly staff, good ration price quality
Room very comfortable ,with good view of lake to the side and garden to rear.Noise from trains not a problem ,so long as shutters kept shut at night.Recommend you ask for room in main building. Staff friendly and helpful when asked about places to go and visit.
Evening meal on Sunday evening in restaurant not particularly sparkling for the price.Had a better one and cheaper in town restaurant on previous evening.
Perfect choice! Perfect Place! From Check-in till Check-out was Superb! Sara at check-in and check-out was so helpful and professional. Very clean and well kept hotel, our room and bathroom was kept 'spick and span.' The most beautiful gardens and nicely manicured landscapes. Dining room staff were very courteous and helpful, and displayed great attention to detail. Lovely breakfast settings with wide selection. Dinner presentation was very good and meals were tasty. Highlight of our stay was the Giuseppe at the Cocktail Bar :-), Happy Hour, and after dinner drinks at the bar were delightful... Giuseppe (Bar Attendant) was so professional, knowledgable, a great conversationalist, he makes the most wonderful Cocktails- Mojitos- Berries/Fruity Spitz, Tasty and Delicious. Yum Yum! A truly memorable stay!! A Little Paradise!! Would highly recommend!! ++++
