Location was very important for this stay which left a limited number of possible hotels. The combination of zero compromise on location and the value for money made the very friendly welcome a fine conclusion of a challenging business day.

The reception arrival was nice as was the welcome glass of champagne which was offered. The room was very well appointed. The bed was very comfortable and the angle of it could be adjusted electronically. The bathroom was great too. The hotel is well located for the Lake and surrounding restaurants and places of interest

Great location in easy walking distance of the old town and the lake. Super room, larger than expected. Mix- up between the hotel and this website at check-in but the receptionist dealt with the challenge very professionally.

Most accomodating and friendly staff and management. Great complimentary drinks on terrace Friday nights. Close to station (not the main station) , the lake and old town. I made a mess of my booking and the staff could not have have been more helpful in accommodating us.
