Spent one night here. As we arrived happy to see there would be music! So we get to the restaurant, have a quite good meal (rack of lamb is just two chops...) and enjoy the music, very lively atmosphere ! Around 11.30pm decide to go to bed and... impossible to sleep until 3 am. Having music is nice but I didn't expect a discoclub ! And when we complained next morning the only answer we get is "oh too bad... ", no apology, no offer to cut the bill, nothing. The worst was entering the breakfast room next morning and smelling stale tobacco. (smoking is prohibited in public places in Switzerland..) As for breakfast, I'm not sure that ready cut cheese and ham were "bio"..
The place is ecologically built, but I am sure there is possibility to isolate walls ecologically no ? We heard every sound and conversation from both next door rooms. Zero intimacy...
So we were disappointed and will definitely not return. Sorry

Room tip: Make sure there is nobody in the rooms next door...

Il cliente ha riservato per 2 notti. La prima notte c'era la festa di riapertura della LOcanda ed effettivamente la musica poteva disturbare gli ospiti. La locanda era tutta occupata. Abbiamo ricevuto la reclamazione solo da questo ospite, ci siamo scusati e visto che non volevano più restare la seconda notte non abbiamo chiesto l'importo per la seconda notte come da regolamento. La camera infatti la seconda notte é rimasta invenduta.
I clienti hanno fumato come sempre sulla terrazza e non nel ristorante.
Riteniamo di esserci comunque comportati bene bonificando la seconda notte
Per quanto riguarda il ristorante. I clienti avevano una buono per una cena Gourmet di 4 portate per cui i piatti sono stati serviti adeguatamente e non abbiamo ricevuto reclamazioni dal cliente-

This is a delightful 2 star hotel with a glorious view over the lake of Lugano, and the advantage, in winter, of full sunshine all day - unusual in Switzerland for mountains not to get in the way! The hotel is built according to ecological principals - mainly out of wood. The simple rooms face south, and all have a view. There is a small swimming pool in which to cool off in the summer. The restaurant has a wonderful fire place burning logs, which makes it very cosy in the winter. The food is well prepared, and they are very happy to serve groups of up to 25 for lunch.

This hotel is located on a very high place (not very sure what Swiss call it), we had a great view of Lugano!! It was breathtaking. Just the view alone made our stay worthwhile.

The beds are bunk beds. We share a toilet with the other room which is our couple friend's room so that's ok. Our two-bedroom (Room 4&5) with toilet is separated with a door from other rooms which is great.

The owners were trusting and friendly. We forgot to give back the room keys and they just suggested to send it by post because we were already half an hour's drive away.

We had a scare when we thought the only way to the hotel is by foot up the steep rock stairs. It had drizzled earlier on so you can imagine the mossy rocks are wet.

Other than that it was ok. Although the quilts are not very soft. I have a thing with quilts.
