    Breathtaking views from Riverview room. River room large. Many dining options (and great bakery) nearby, most pitched for adult dining. Easy walk to train station. Room amenities excellent.

    Only able to access entry via a short flight of stairs (small bother if with young children, prams and bags). No children’s options for in room dining.

    The hotel is centrally located, and a 3 min walk from the train station, we enjoyed the beautiful fire place and views of the lake from the hotel. The rooms are beautifully decorated and staff are very attentive. We were treated to Swiss chocolates every night. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    The room was very small, smaller than I expected. Could be laid out better. They should learn from the Japanese how to arrange the furniture.

    The room was a bit small. They should use better furniture for a 4 star hotel.

    One of our rooms was very very small and the other with a considerable more room.
