This more than 100 year old hotel is a lot of what you would expect of an old hotel. Time though seems to have left it behind. It is an old "Grand Hotel" vast empty spaces, high ceilings, old fashioned elegance. You can feel the glamour of old (very old) times.
The rooms are nice and were probably renovated not than long ago. The view of the lake is stunning. Staff is friendly some are very professional, some are not (the concierge trying to book a table within walking distance of the hotel at a restaurant which is in the process of beeing totally refurbished). Breakfast is plentyful and excellent, service in the breakfast room is superb.
