There is incredible view over the lake right from the outside terrace where you can get a cup of coffee in a very relaxing atmosphere. Tons of flowers, warm lighting and romantic music in the evening make your stay in the bar unforgettable. The service personal in the hotel is perfect.

This hotel is a truly luxury Grand Hotel, as the name suggests. The staff is highly attentive and helpful. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with high end furniture, bedding, etc. The views of the lake are wonderful, especially in early morning and late afternoon. A nice "base" location for strolls along the lake, walking to local restaurants, and taking...

I always feel like I am coming home when I visit this hotel. It is as beautiful inside as it is outside with the most amazing breathtaking views over the lake and the mountains. I really recommend spending the little extra on having a "lake view room" because waking up to that view in the morning is spectacular. The welcome...
