Family Vacation

The hotel is a little bit old but the location is fantastic and the staff is very friendly. We had a view of the lake and a short walk down the hill to the shore. We never had to get in the car during the visit. Wish we had stayed longer.

Average experience, OK for a night (or 2)

The hotel was good for 1 night, interior was very "eighties", but be prepared for that in this part of the world. The restaurant had a 3 course menu (2 course if you would skip dessert or starter), quality was fine, opening hours of the restaurant between 7PM and 8.30PM. Kinda awkward, but the bar was open until late that night. Location is beautiful, with a nice view over Lake Lugano (partly). Internet was basically not working. Summarising, I had a nice sleep, a few beers at the pool at night, a meal that did the trick and some breakfast in the morning. Nothing excellent, nothing bad. Closing statement, staff was very friendly!!!
