This hotel is in a lovely spot with a magnificent view of the lake. However, it is quite a hike down to the town. The room was nothing special, no frills but clean. The receptionist I suspect owner was very rude to us, when we asked for 2 glasses for our bottle of wine we had just bought our way...

Stayed in the hotel for a long weekend in wintertime. The room was nice, just the room temperature was a bit difficult to control. Beds were good. Almost every room has a balcony, with magnificent view over the lake. The staff is kind and very helpful (also English is spoken). Because of wintertime, the restaurants as closed, but the buffet...
