                    The rooms were luxurious and the location was perfect--right on the water and within walking distance of the train station.

                    Wonderful hotel with a stunning view of the lake.

                    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 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.

                    The bed was very hard and uncomfortable. The bathtub, with deep sides, was difficult to get in and out of.

                    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.
