Positive Reviews

Amazing views of Lake Zurich

With the beautiful terrace right on site, you will be able to get your fill of views when staying here. The hotel is situated right on Lake Zurich so you can enjoy a drink while soaking in the stunning scenery.

Prompt and delicious room service

No, you won't have to leave your room to get a delicious meal. The hotel offers a fast and professional room service. The diverse menu and colour-wine list has it all; you can get whatever you're in the mood for.

Amazing restaurants on site

From the garden restaurant to the Pavillion restaurant, there are plenty of choices for you to pick from when it comes to meals. Everything is made fresh here, whether it's the salads or the delicious gazpacho.

Negative Reviews

Inadequate insulation here

Something that may end up putting a dark cloud on your stay is the lack of insulation. There isn't much to block out the noise, which can get overwhelming at times.

Can be a problem for those with food allergies

If you have a food allergy or are intolerant to certain items, you will probably run into issues. The hotel staff doesn't seem to take these seriously, so you may not get what you asked for.

Rooms aren't always ready on time

Even if you arrive after check-in, your room still might not be ready. The housekeeping runs behind with getting things ready, so there's a good chance you will have to wait around for a while.
