Travelled with family
Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Really enjoyed our stay especially since we were so kindly given an upgrade to a HUGE suite. As many of the reviews shared the place is a little run down but I think there’s a certain laid back charm in that. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly - room was beautiful, breakfast sufficient (staff and coffee were wonderful), and location unbearable (bus just outside takes you everywhere 5 min to train station). Don’t forget to ask for your free Ticino pass - it’s the best for free transportation and discounts in the entire region!

Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Disliked: Staff & service
OK but not very pleased
We booked the design suite as a Family, unfortunately the cost/performance ratio was not OK. The endowment of the rather expensive room was not sufficient or rather old, some of the equipment was not ready (chimney) - ask for it to get it ready in case you want to use it for any reason. My kids were very disappointed once I told then we can‘t use it… Dishes only available against an extra fee of 50.-/day. Ticino Ticket you need to create your self, do not expect too much of assistance of the front desk. The quality of the meals of the restaurant was very good, even though we waited for more than an hour for the main dish, I do not want to miss the experience having dinner at the local facility. The diversity of the breakfast buffet is great! As a last point I want to mention the parking, especially the garage and its vehicle access is very limited (narrow).
