The Hermitage is about 10mins by bus from Lucerne Station (#24 - stops outside), so there are nearer hotels with lake/ mountain views, but going this bit further means you get a hotel with private grounds right down to the lake, rather than behind the lakeside promenade.
We were in the 'new' block and having read previous reviews re the Juliet v 'proper' balconies in the older part, I was a bit disappointed. However, this view quickly changed on entering the room; stunning lake/ mountain views from full width/ height windows - breathtaking! To be fair we didn't see the view from the older rooms, but from looking at the outside, the balcony is inset so I would imagine you don't quite get the impact you do from the new rooms.
I was in town for the marathon, but we still managed a trip up Mount Pilatus, which I would highly recommend - the railway goes up at 48 degrees and view from the top are even better than from the hotel (which is going some!).
Food and service all good
