    There is no toothpaste provided by hotel. It is a hygiene matter and it should be provided by 4* hotel 100%! So we have to find a supermarket which is 10mins walk to buy it our own. We were literally running to the shop to buy the toothpaste as supermarket closes at 6:30PM. The hotel provides shoe polish sponge over toothpaste which is priority set incorrect. We put our comment kindly in hotel questionnaire, hopefully they will take a note of it. Also other thing that disappointed us a bit, there is only one TV Channel in English which was CNN ,news all the same all over again every day. So that was a bit irritating. Hotel has MTV HD channel, though all the programs on there are translated in German except a couple in evening that are in English with German subtitles on.. so would be lovely to have wider range of options on TV channels in English. Besides those two observations everything else was lovely, had a really good time while staying over in Alexander.

    The balcony view is stunning. Love the fact outside the rooms in corridor there is coffee machine to help yourself for coffee and tea at any time. The bed is extra comfy! Saunas are so good, enjoyed to clarify and detox ourselves in different sauna rooms and outdoor swimming pool is exactly how it’s shown in pictures on their website! <3

    You can clearly see that the hotel has been renovated. They tried to make it modern but everywhere you can see the old muffy style. Not nicely done.

    Super good location at the lake with nice garden and swimming options. Good restaurant.

    It's fantastic but in my opinion it is very expensive

    The location is simply amazing! The view you wake up to is breathtaking. The staff are lovely and there is a good selection of restaurants.

    Nothing to do with the hotel at all: ...but why do Audi make it so difficult to change a headlamp bulb...?!

    The staff were excellent, the facilities excellent, the food excellent and the location excellent. We couldn't have asked for more, aside from maybe being able to stay on for longer. Would definitely consider going back again - maybe in the summer months for a swim in the lake...

    A reduction in my score as it isn't air-conditioned which in 42degC heat it really could have been. It is also rather pricey, but then the entire weggis / vitznau region is very expensive.

    really very good - my 2nd stay - its in such a good location, excellent views and the warmest welcome I've ever received from hotel staff. genuinely one of my favourite hotels in the world and I look forward to going back.

    The location of the hotel is wonderful!

    When a heat wave hits the area as it did on our trip, the hotel is extremely hot! We asked for a fan which helped a little; but with no cross ventilation, it was very uncomfortable! Also, we felt that the evening meals were very expensive.

    The location of the hotel is wonderful! It is right across the street from the Lido; and as a guest of the hotel, you get in free! The Lido has great swimming, diving platforms, grass, shade trees, and a snack bar. The hotel is lovely, and the staff is great! The terrace is a wonderful place for meals, and the indoor and outdoor pools and spa areas are very nice. Most of the rooms have a balcony with a lake view which is fabulous! The village of Weggis and the boat dock for the steamer that travels around the lake are about a 20- minute walk from the hotel.
