Good location and standard of accomodation
The hotel was very clean and comfortable and had all the amenities--even a laundry room that guests could use (though you have to ask--I was told that Americans are the only ones who ask about doing their own laundry). An easy 5- to 10-minute walk into Locarno, but all uphill on the way home. Or you could get on the funicular that runs every 15 minutes or so right next to the hotel (until early evening, I think). The breakfast buffet is sumptuous, the coffee very good. Nice grounds, pools, spa facilities.
It's very big and a little sterile-seeming. A lot of older German tourists seem to stay there. This is not a bad thing; just makes the place seem a little staid.
We loved everything and we're usually very critical. The grounds, the room, the service- it's more like a five-star hotel.
Outstanding service location and stunning views...a wonderful stay!!
