Stayed here for one night as part of a European road trip and found it a good location for the mountain passes along with being in a nice, quiet location. Room was very basic but clean and comfortable. Wifi worked well. Free parking across the road. Breakfast was also very good. Had a meal in the restaurant and we both...

Found this lovely hotel while touring by motorcycle. Out of season a lot of hotels were closed. Luckily this one wasn't and we received a warm welcome and garage space. Very friendly staff, cosy room and excellent food (although a bit pricey as this is Switzerland). Nice breakfast, buffet style. Stunning views!!

We went for a walk in the snow, up a steep hill to the top railway line. We ate dinner in the hotel which was good. Breakfast was adequate...

We booked this hotel because it is only 2km from the Gotthard Tunnel on our way to Tuscany. The rooms are very basic and small but are clean. Breakfast offers just enough variety but is not the kind of breakfast you want on your holiday. They serve dinner which is of a good quality but expensive (but that is Switzerland...)....

Clean if sparse room. Restaurant open late and served nice local dishes. Breakfast was decent and staff had good language skills. Really terrific location. A stopover on the way to Italy as right by gotthard tunnel.

Very friendly and good price/quality. Well situated hotel and very near to the Gotthard tunnel. We had a nice stay and we had dinner in the hotel. Very friendly staff! We stayed only for one night but a longer journey would have been nice.
