We were there in late April 12 and stayed there for one night. The room from our lake view room was incredible, especially the gorgeous view from the bathroom bathtub! The amenities in the room were basic but clean. Seriously, you don't need much with such a view, just a balcony and a couple of chairs. Such beauty with good privacy. Breakfast was adequate with warm coffee served at your table. Owner Enrico is also very friendly and helpful. Gandria is a small village but we like it because it is away from the crowds with fun winding streets to wander. There is a good regular boat service from Lugano that can bring you all the way to the end of the lake in Porlezza, Italy where you can get off to walk around and buy a gelato before taking the next boat back to Lugano. Gandria is also connected via hiking paths including the Olive path. We walked from Lugano to Gandria via Monte Bre Village. We took 1.5 hours, descended 2400 feet and walked a total of 3.75km. But you get to catch beautiful views of the lake and descend through the woodlands in well-marked paths. You do need moderate fitness and strong knees though.
