    Highly recommended for a short stay.

    • Single Room
    • Stayed 1 night

    The room was small, although perfectly adequate for a night's stay. The hotel's surroundings appeared uninteresting (railway, roads) but it was not noisy.

    The staff went out of their way to help us when we arrived late (at 21.30), finding parking and making an excellent meal. There are numerous works of art around the hotel. The room was well kept.

    The person bringing the keys was a little bit shady. He didn't have change money for the tourist tax. Airco was there, but there was no power socket that fitted in the room.

    The family members running the hotel are all extremely kind and helpful. The location is perfect if you're travelling since the hotel is just off the main road in the little town of Lavorgo and just a couple of km before the Gotthard tunnel (if you travel southwards). The price you pay is very fair and it's probably worth it to try the restaurant, since it was full of guests on the night of my arrival. Maybe next time!

    Accommodation was a little dated, but it was adequate and clean.

    Lovely friendly staff, some of whom spoke good English. Very good food. Ideal position, just off the motorway, for our trip down through Switzerland to Italy. A welcome break after the queues to get through the Gotthard Tunnel.

    There was no shower privacy meaning you could see the person taking a shower from the bedroom - the only door was for the toilet - even though we arrived later, around 2100, our room was not ready. There was no wifi for our room because they put us in another building and breakfast was just croissants and coffee, a tiny selection of bread meat and cheese. The shower dripped loudly all night. For 200 euro/night I Wouldn't go back.

    Booking.com emailed me to move to this place, as the restaurant in the other hotel I reserved would be closed. Guess what, the Defiant restaurant was closed as well We had to drive 10 minutes to find a Pizzeria.

    Nowhere nearby for food forced us into the restaurant which was far too expensive. This is quite normal for Switzerland though. Felt nickled-and-dimed for charges, including surcharges for my dogs.

    Location was perfect for a stopover. Room was a nice size for a family, and the accommodations were good.
