Comfortable for 3-4 day visit. Fantastic views from room, breakfast area and poolside. Never got tired of that view. Would have liked the courtesy car to operate later- last pickup from Lugano City Centre was 9:30pm.

8/10 Very good

The staff were friendly and attentive, outdoor areas were very well managed and perfect for relaxing. Bed room was clean and the bed very comfortable. the only issue were the bathroom and this was the only area where the hotel let themselves down. We had a small baby so the bath tub was very important. The taps were not fixed in place and as such the water became tainted with the rust, dirt opened up by the silicon having been consumed. The maintenance came straight away to check and they arranged for it to be clean, but for the price we paid i would have expected this to have been checked before we checked in, also the sink on the right did not drain as it should, minor points but at 5* I expect these to be taken care of before we arrive,

10/10 Exceptional

We had to stay 22 nights because of an illness. We were treated as family. The staff is wonderful. The food is great. We are going back to the hotel not only because Lugano is beautiful but because we want to stay in this incredible hotel. Every employee was kind, generous, helpful. We could not think of going to Lugano and not stay in this hotel! We give a 5 star.
