Nice hotel with an awesome view of the lake. The hotel is located just a couple hundred meters from Italy where there are some great Italian restaurant. The part I don't like is lack of lighting in the hallway. The staff are friendly and super nice. Wife and I enjoyed our 2-night stay very much.

View to kill for...
If you are looking for a quiet get away in idyllic setting, then look no further. The hotel look tired from the outside. But, inside was a different story. Loved the stay. Plus Fantastic restaurant to boot!
