1/5 Terrible

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
A great disappointment.
I booked a lake view room. The pictures on the link for room info show a clear garden terrace and lake view. The room I received had a view of the roof of the dining room. In addition, as an option, I was given a key to a different room (at a premium price) and that room was occupied. I walked in on a guest. The Reception Desk kept us waiting for over 30 minutes with no explanation. When I showed reception the website photos I was told I was wrong. The info on Hotels.com is misleading. In addition, the Double Room - Lake View rooms are on the ground floor, right by Reception and the elevators and directly over the kitchens (noise all evening). There is no aircon. The treatment I received by the Reception staff was totally unprofessional. The location is very good but no other restaurants close by.The restaurant food and service was very good but the room and service issues made this a visit I will be happy to forget and was a thoroughly disappointing end to our two week tour of Switzerland - not what Switzerland is all about.

Loved staying here. Good breakfast and amazing view. Only 15 minutes away from Lucerne. If you are coming by train I would recommend to catch bus 21 right outside the train station. There is a stop right in front of the hotel. I would definitely stay here again.

I liked the location and the quiet country surroundings, tinkling cowbells on a quiet summer evening was superb. The little balconies were a nice touch with awnings that allowed you to sit and watch a thunderstorm in the mountains

This hotel was amazing! Clean facilities, comfortable rooms, and very kind staff. It’s right next to the bus stop (bus 21) that takes you directly into Lucerne city center. They also have a dock which the tour boats can pick you up (Saphir). The hotel also offers discounted tickets for these attractions. And don’t forget to eat dinner here one night. The food is incredible. My wife got the filet and I got the fish and chips and they were outstanding!
