Pleasant, gorgeous views but avoid the restaurant!
The hotel is a throwback to a more elegant time, with spacious hallways and staircase, a garden with pool, and a restaurant on the pleasant terrace with gorgeous views. What a shame, then, that the restaurant service left us feeling irritated and angry. One of the waiters was pompous, condescending, and downright rude; instead of being helpful with the wine, he tried to impress with jargon, and rolled his eyes when we selected a "lesser" wine offered by the glass; when we decided on just a pasta course, his attitude was dismissive and haughty; when asked for dessert menus, he dropped them off and disappeared, and no one deigned to come back to take our order for the next 15 minutes.

Locarno
Hotel was very nice and most of staff very friendly and helpful. Only issue is lack of transportation and distance to train station. Hotel car only provided to pick you up and drop you off once. Not to logical if the car is going to town anyway to take riders. Taking the bus leaves you with extreme uphill walk. Buses only run on a half hour schedule. Young man working the front desk on the weekend was extremely helpful and provided all the service he could. Dining room was nice and food was very acceptable. Only issue was a broken coffee machine and the line for coffee when working. Probably should have two coffee machines

Comfortable hotel
This hotel was great. Huge rooms with balcony, and very comfortable beds. Fantastic view of the lake. It's further from town but so much nicer because it is quiet. The breakfast was amazing. We wish we had stayed another night or two.

Still good, but used to be better.
Not as good as it used to be, since they started using concentrates for breakfast juices, and now even charging for an omelette or fried eggs. The rooms are not well insulated, and can be noisy at full occupancy. On the positive side, they offer to pick-up/drop-off at the train station, have a good outdoor pool and several spa facilities. Not the worst location, but still a good walk uphill/downhill from the lake. We were able to loan bikes free of charge, but they were not well maintained in my opinion. They did offer a free chocolate egg for Easter, as well as a prize draw (although only one prize, and we were not lucky). It is my 2nd time at this hotel, my wife's 5th time, as it is possible to get good prices at non peak times. I think we'll look somewhere else next time though.

Wonderful
Superb hotel. Great facilities, good price and very clean. Only slight complaint is the restaurant is not quite up to the standard you expect given how expensive it is. The breakfast buffet, however is excellent.
