Overall disappointed. Front desk staff not so nice. Called the reception close to midnight for a box of tissue, no one answered the call. Hotel front door was broken and under repair, all customers have to walk through the bar to check in, where no staff there to help you with your luggages.

Lovely hotel with a great view from the restaurants. We had a garden view room which was quite pretty. The bathroom in our room was small and desperately in need of a refurbishment. It looked like it hadn't been done in 20 years or so. Otherwise good hotel in good location.

Hotel is a bit dated, but excellent location. Nice & Quiet Although we took the garden view room, we were still able to have access/view of few mountains covered with lovely snow.

I had originally been booked into a room with a garden view, but when I arrived I was upgraded to a room with a view of the mountains and lakes (and it was on the top floor), bliss!! I was very impressed with the size of the room as well and you could see the rooms had been renovated recently. You would want a car if you are going to be staying there though as it’s a few minutes out of town and up a big hill :-) I’m glad I picked the Mercure though and I’ll be staying there again.
