Beautiful property with view Lake Lugano
We were given a very large room with kitchenette and balcony with a fabulous view of Lake Lugano. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The grounds, pool, and hot tub/jacuzzi areas were also very large, clean, and well-appointed. Breakfast was one of the best we have had: eggs, espresso, champagne, bread, meats, cheese, Pellegrino, tea, fruit, yoghurt, etc. All overlooking Lake Lugano. Getting to the hotel from the train station was just a short bus ride away. We would definitely stay here again!

Check in was rushed; consequently we did not get pertinent information and had to seek that out later. The room was dirty. There was a lot of mold in the bathroom, in the grout lines. The room was noisy - there was construction going on in the facility somewhere near our room. When we told management about the noise, they did stop it. The window leaked when it rained, resulting in a big puddle on the floor, which could easily have caused a slip and fall. Several of the floorboards were loose and raised up, causing a tripping hazard. Those boards had sharp edges which could have resulted in cuts on our feet. Breakfast was wonderful! The shuttle service from and to the train station was efficient and much appreciated. Most of the staff was helpful and courteous. The views from the property were great!

The staff was fantastic and very helpful. The property is older and while they are trying, it could really use a good scrubbing and a fresh coat of paint. But overall it wasn’t too bad.

Stunning views
The hotel is situated high above the lake so offers incredible views and is really peaceful. Although this means a steep 15-minute walk to the lake and town it is worth it. The swimming pools are magnificent and the restaurant offered delicious and original (if very expensive) food.
