wedding weekend in Lugano

Friendly reception and staff, nice room (our dog had also his own bed) , very good breakfast parking possibility was good we only had some difficulties to find the reception ( front and back entrance) when we arrived with our car ( this is the only room for improvement in this wonderfull hotel )


A beautiful hotel situated in beautiful surroundings.
Our suite was big and clean and boasted amazing views of the lake and mountains.
The breakfasts were fantastic every morning , the restaurants offered lovely food and we even had an afternoon tea which was of the highest quality.
But what made the hotel a real gem were all the staff. Friendly service from all and would go beyond to make the guests happy.
I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Amazing Staff

The Hotel is a 5 star in a very beautiful place. Rooms are large and my one had a balcony with a pretty good view of the lake.
The staff treats you like a king, like I haven´t seen for a long time....
