We had an overnight stay here booked by our travel agent as part of a Eurpoean rail tour. It certainly was an excellent choice. Our room number 103 had a wonderful view of Lake Lugano, it was spacious although little dated in decor but that added to the charm. All the staff were very helpful especially the reception desk. The breakfast buffet was very extensive with hot and cold dishes. Do not miss a chance to dine in the hotels restaurant The food and service were outstanding. Our only regret was that we wish we could have stayed a little longer.
Overall the facilities are great. We loved the outdoor swimming pool. The room however is in my opinion way too expensive for the qualitiy. It did NOT look like the pictures at all, during our stay it was very hot in Lugano And there was no airconditioning. We did receive a fan which helped I bit. However I find it weird that a deluxe suite does not have airconditioning. The room was not decorated at all which Made me feel very unwelcome And gave the room an eerie feel to it. The staff was Okay.
We had a spotless and beautifully decorated two rooms with kitchen suite. Very comfortable. Only negative was that there was only one pillow per person on the double bed. so not comfortanle for reading.
Poor quality breakfast. Fried eggs only for extra-charge (!). No pancakes. Rooms old. Bathroom and shower need FULL renovation. There is no clarity about the half-board. Apparently a fixed-menu was an option, but when you go to the restaurant, such menu was not clear. One could not know in advance.
Wonderful Summerholi-Days in Switzerland staying in an nice apartment but with all hotle sevices availeble if desired. Nice swimming-pool area, delicious food at the bistro and a breathtaking view from the balcony of our room overlooking Lugano.
