Cute and cozy B&B in the hills of Lugano
We arrived around 6:30 pm, and the manager met us in the parking lot to help direct us how to get in. I would recommend getting there a little earlier, because it's located up in the mountain, and it takes awhile as well as it would be easier to see around the many curves and narrow roads. Once we arrived, it was well worth the drive. It's family owned for 4 generations, and the owner and manager seem to take care of it all, including making fabulous food for dinner if you want to stay on-site, and a good spread in the morning for breakfast. Our stay was short, but the place was so cute and the area so interesting, we would have liked to stay longer.

Far from the Crowds
The Grotto Flora provided a large, sumptuous room. We were delighted with both the room and the hotel's surroundings. It's difficult to reach from the train station however, costing us nearly 100 swiss francs for taxis there and back. If you want to relax in the countryside, this is the place. It's situated in an upscale residential neighborhood which means you won't be walking to the corner bistro for any meals or cappucini, so be prepared. Internet service was very spotty, requiring us to leave our room to check our emails. Once again, that's to be expected in out-of-the-way locations. We dined at the hotel where our dinner was tasty and somewhat novel compared to "eats" in the city. Dinner was a bit expensive as a result, but the owner rises early every morning to begin the evening's preparations. Breakfast was an ample buffet. We only stayed one night as we were due to catch the Bernina Express the next day.

Lovely little B&B in the beautiful moutain scenery
This was a wonderful experience. The location is like something out of a postcard! The room was nicely decorated, clean, and comfortable. The staff spoke English very well and were very charming and helpful. The restaurant is quite big and the food was nice. The food choice menu was a bit limited but had enough variety to keep a vegetarian happy! Breakfast was above average. There are bus stops 100m from the hotel with buses going to and from Lugano every hour.

There's a restaurant in the court in the middle of the b&b so the place is quite noisy in the evening including 2 nights when the noise didn't stop until well past midnight. There were a few dead bugs by the window.
