“Stunning lake and mountain views”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

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

Room Tip: Personally preferred the new rooms for the better views (in exchange for a balcony). Ideally go for...

Great hotel with beautiful views from the room over the lake. The room itself was spacious and very clean. The staff were all very friendly and the food in the restaurant was excellent. Overall brilliant hotel.

Could not fault this hotel. Room was spacious enough for 2 adults and one child. Beautiful view of Mt. Pilatus. Staff were very helpful and accommodating. It was absolutely worth every penny! Breakfast was wonderful with lots of options. We had dinner a few nights in the restaurant and it was some of the best meals we have had on our holiday so far. We even braved the cold and took a polar dip in Lake Luzern in October, just couldn't resist, the water looked to beautiful not to!

Hermitage Hotel had a warm welcome to 14 people including children. Had beautiful lake and mountain view. rooms was new and very wide.
Hotel price worth for the location who prefers good view. 5 minute to city center by car.
Hotel restaurant night service was not suitable to families with children. Restaurants night service was sticky strictly to the rules. But breakfast and breakfast service was very good and sincere.
generally we loved it.

I stayed with my family in lake view room of the hotel. I must stay the views from the room were excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed the 3 night stay and want to come back here again. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Seeing the lake on full moon at night from your window is unexplainable experience....the reception and over all hotel environment was quite welcoming.

Room Tip: always choose lake view

Excellent stay near the beautifull city of Lucerne. Nice welcome, room update for the daughter. Bacara restaurent with very qualified waiters, good menu and wines.
Spa sufficient considering the limited space, not intensively used by guests. Apparently no demand for pool or wellness.

Room Tip: Transport to/from city center with regular bus service every 15 minutes, busstop in front of hotel...
