    Placement of the people to the tables; some (bigger ones, closer to the sea side) were reserved for hotel guests but nobody showed up - obviously nobody asked them if they would come.

    Excellent location, rooms, surroundings. Very nice for breakfast, very good food and dinner place outside at the lake.

    There were only blankets on the beds which was a bit unusual and meant our son found it hard to sleep. Also some of the bedroom walls were a little thin so we heard our neighbour’s cough.

    The location is gorgeous, right by the lake in a tiny picturesque town. The hotel is decorated with lovely antiques and prints and feels very welcoming. Our room was small but comfortable with a lovely view over the lake. The bathrooms had recently been revamped and are clean and modern. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our children were treated to delicious pasta with homemade tomato sauce and ice cream to follow. Just like the previous time, we wished we were not rushing on with the rest of our journey.

    The weather. Unseasonally cold and wet so we didn't see the terrace and the lake at its best. No complaints or suggested improvements about the hotel.

    We loved this hotel. The location is spectacular. Beautiful and peaceful. The restaurant is not cheap but excellent and the staff are so welcoming and helpful. The rooms at the lakeside have wonderful views and in good weather there is lots of beautiful space to sit and read. There are walks straight from the hotel and the lake ferry stops outside.

    The bathroom was small didn't have curtains to shield water splashing onto the bathroom floor, however the setup reflected the style of the hotel.

    Amazing hotel right on the edge of Lake Lugano, step off the deck and take a dip. The decor and style reflects the hotels history and very splendid indeed. Family run, and the parents, in their 80s, well dressed and ready early in the morning, happy for a conversation. The hotel is in a little village, which has everything one needs to see about typical Italy: old church with big spire, cobbled stone alleys and streets, coffee shop and restaurant. You can climb up the path to the chapel behind the church and have an amazing view of the lake. I would like to go back and stay a bit longer at this hotel and the village. The dining area include the outside garden a few meters from the lake. We had some beers out at the waters edge, just superb. The staff were amazing and happy to help with explanation of menu items.

    We love this hotel. We've been many times and the welcome is very satisfying and makes us feel at home. The staff remain the same people year on year that shows their commitment to the highest standards and quality of service. It is a very comfortable place to stay, and, of course, the tranquillity of the lake is marvellous, yet interesting as there's always something going on. we had a brilliant bedroom with balcony this year. our car was accommodated in the garage. the food is always terrific.
