    Maybe needs a slight modernisation.

    Nice hotel, a little dated but perfectly fine, breakfast was good and the staff were excellent. Great location overlooking the lake and a 1 minute walk to the nearest restaurant.

    I was disappointed not to see any birchermuesli on the breakfast buffet, just two choices of rather sweet cereals. I appreciate natural yoghurt and fruit salad, neither of which were available.

    The hotel is situated on the lake. Free parking directly outside the hotel and a good wifi is important to me when I am working. The room was more than adequate for my needs with a view of the lake and a small balcony.

    Walls in the room a bit thin - could hear the television of the neighbouring room clearly. Odd arrangement with the sink - which is in the main room, not the bathroom. Shower enclosure leaves an opening that makes the whole bathroom floor wet - a simple curtain or a small door would solve this, but it's left open.

    Friendly staff and easy to access location with a nice view over the lake from the dining room (room faced the hill and grape vines behind the hotel - also pleasant).

    Nothing really, the only thing if I was being picky would be offering a more simple menu to go along with the great food in the main menu. My reson for this is if your on business and staying in the same hotel for a week it's nice to have the option of more simple food. I guess if I had asked they would have prepared something similar.

    The staff were great, especially the owner and the loverly waitress in the evening. It's a great location with a nice restaurant and bar.

    The hotel was a bit empty in terms of bookings/guests. Nevertheless; I spoke with mr Fontana himself. Very nice gentleman, advised me to go to the local wine-tasting-building (25mtr away) just around the corner. In order to the hotel. Very nice. Very well organised.

    A very welcoming owner.

    We paid CHF 220 for a standard room and thought that was, even for Swiss standards, very expensive. Either the room needs to be upped in standard or the price has to come down quite a bit. The lady serving the breakfast buffet refused to speak German or English and insisted on either no communication or us speaking French.

    A very welcoming owner. That is the kind of hospitality you expect in Switzerland but no longer find very often. Nice location in the middle of a beautiful wine village. 2 Minutes from the lake.
