We were walking from Gandria back along the Olive walk towards Lugano when we came across this lovely refreshment stop on a hot day - a perfect lakeside terrace where we could have a lovely cold white beer and some gelato. There was also an unexpected aquatic diner nearby - a diving bird made a big spalsh and when we...

Idyllic and tranquil setting on the lake shore with a sheltered cosy terrace hanging just above the waters. Inviting stopover on your way from Lugano to Gandria, enjoying stunningly beautiful scenery over cup of coffee.

My wife and I thought this place was wonderful! It sits right on the lake, with no automobile traffic nearby. Each room has a balcony that you can sit on overlooking the lake. No bad rooms. The rooms aren't huge or fancy, but they are very pleasant and our bathroom was full sized. No AC (welcome to Europe), but the...

Very quiet place near Lugano, with fantastic view on the lake and it green hills! I can only recommend it! We received a war welcome from the very nice owner of the place. You can reach Lugano by boat or like we did, by bike along the lake. If you like tranquility and wake up with the birds songs, then...

The food was okay, the staff very very friendly happy to adjust to the fact that we wanted to share some dishes bringing extra places. View is phenomenal, walk inside the hotel, very clean and great different decor.

We did not stay at the hotel, but since we were staying in Gandria we visited the ristorante at Elvezia al Lago. The location is lovely, with fine views over the lake. However, we found the service inhospitable, and the food was only average. There are bettwer restos by far in Gandria itself.

Friendly and welcoming, this little hotel is beautifully situated on the lake side and in a peaceful location way from traffic. No cars allowed down the track leading to it, which was a bonus for us. Room 5,is lovely with 2 sunny balconies opening to the lake view. Only thing missing is tea and coffee making facilities in the room....

Good place to have a nice lunch over looking the lake. Must take a water taxi, Kurt Saladin, from Lugano, cell +41 (0) 79 621 31 22. Service was good, nice menu selection, but the outdoor patio over looking the lake is the main attraction.

Although a lot of planning involved to get here it was well worth the journey. Rosie was very sweet and upgraded us on our honeymoon once the better room became available (top floor with dual aspect windows). We really want to go back ASAP.
