Family trip
Excellent service and the rooms were just perfect. Breakfast had a lot of variety and there was extra attention paid for food allergies.

My Solothurn home-from-home
I've lost count of the number of times I've stayed here over the years; this was my first trip back since March 2020 and it was like I had never been away. It's a great hotel, in a great location with great service and they have picked up exactly where they left off before Covid. I'll be there next week again.
