                  Wonderful hotel with a stunning view of the lake.

                  9.2

                  The staff service was excellent. I had organized a European Vacation for a group of eight and the staff at the Grand Hotel were of great assistance.

                  There was a problem with the Internet. It is imperative that service be readily available at all times for business.

                  the lake and the bed linen and towels

                  the hotel seemed empty except for the outside areas of food etc.the room and bathroom were too congested no room to move about

                  The location of the hotel and the view of the lake.

                  5.4

                  good location

                  Breakfast should have been included in the room tariff, all hotels offer this. We were not happy with the check-in process, the staff was not competent. concierge service was not good.

                  The hotel is absolutely beautiful and conveniently located right on the lake very close to all activities.

                  The hotel staff were very good but checking in was a little confusing when we were asked if we wanted to upgrade at a fee.
