The hotel rating is definitely far from reality. Hotel decor is "old" and feels stuffy.. Personnel helpful but not thorough (they made me pay twice for the room...). Room rather small. There was a building site just across the hotel, that did not improve the overall feeling. Breakfast correct, ambience very stuffy.
Wifi did not work in the room, very slow and patchy in the entrance hall. Definitely you can get a much better deal for just a bit more money (Continental Parkhotel for instance or the Victoria au Lac)

Hotel has a secluded residential location with rooms that overlook the mountains and beautiful lake area (several blocks away). Perfect quiet location to rest and read a book. Restaurant serves good breakfast only, must walk or drive to other food establishments. Hotel had bicycles available for guests. Staff worked exceptionally hard to make the visit pleasant. Morning taxi was slow coming for trip to train station. Internet only worked in the lobby area. As a location for secluded rest, this would be a good choice.

Booked from Expedia without any knowledge on the place. arrived very early in the morning but they made great efforts to give me the room at 9AM which will never happen in other hotels. offered me coffee on arrival. The room had a view of the lake that enhanced the experience. The bed was a king size and very comfortable, and the room was very clean. Had a bath that was rebuilt recently so felt like a complete new room. The minibar had good selection. in overall Im coming back next year. stayed there 5 days and loved every minute.

Good hotel for few nights. It situated up on a hill, but has train. Train works till 9-10 pm. Round trip is 6 franks. Stuff is nice, restaurant is very good. Hotel has two pools and small fitness. If you do not mind to spend extra 30 franks/ night, ask for lake-view room with balkony. It worth it even if you do not spend to much time in hotel. Is not that much to do in Locarno itself, but if you have a car you can go to nearby Ascorno (5 min.)

The hotel is heavily understaffed. Nobody has a slightest clue about five stars service. Nobody seems to know his/her role or obligations. Room service doesn't exist; same like there is no concierge or bar. Restaurant has one person to serve guests (btw, we were the only guests for breakfast and lunch).
Be careful taking the lift: one of the two to be used is ... a service lift.
No minibar. We were, according to night porter/security guy the first people this year ordering something at midnight form room service. Poor guy barely spoke Italian and English.
The location was stunning, the staff superb, the free breakfast incredible, the town and shopping lovely. The staff could not do enough for us. The amenities are first class. Would rate a 10 if I could.
