Planning tips from A – Z

Attendance
We kindly request that you inform us of the approximate number of guests you are expecting, seven days beforehand. We must have a definitive number 24 hours prior to the event. You will be billed according to this ‘guaranteed’ attendance figure.

Ballroom Rental
There are no additional room rental fees for Banquets on our premises.

Buffet
It would be a pleasure for us to prepare a delicious made-to-order Dessert or Appetizer Buffet.
Or would a Sunday Brunch be more appropriate?

Cancellation
Reservations are binding. Nevertheless, should it be necessary to cancel your existing confirmed reservation, the terms and conditions as stated in our AGB agreement (general terms and conditions) legally apply.

Candelabra
Our five-pronged silver candelabras are sure to add an elegant touch to your event.

Children
It would be our pleasure to prepare a separate Children’s Menu to accommodate your young guests.

Corkage Fee
In the event that your favourite wine does not appear on our wine list, we would of course
do our best to order it for you. However, if you would still prefer to bring your own wine,
a CHF 40.00 per bottle corkage fee will apply.

Cocktails
Starting off with an aperitif is an ideal way to get your event off on the right foot. We could serve your party in our Hotel lobby, on our Gourmet terrace or directly in one of our Banquet rooms.
