We thought the Italian trains from Milan were superbly comfortable and were also very impressed by the station at Milan. We had a very warm and friendly welcome at the hotel. The room was lovely, beautiful marble bathroom, and a wide choice at breakfast. It was very central and after a long day’s sightseeing we twice used the spa facilities of steam room and pool to ease aching feet and backs. An excellent choice.
The hotel at Montreux was a delight – and only 20 yards across the road from the station! I’m glad we’d upgraded to a lake view room because we had a large balcony, the weather was sunny and warm and the views fabulous. We ate at the hotel restaurant and had the most wonderful meal.
All in all we had a lovely time and hope to use your services again.
