    A most lovely family reunion

    A family get-together was made extra special by the beautiful setting and wonderful staff at Baur au Lac. Vanessa and Marlana at the front desk were always welcoming and most attentive to our every need. We received complimentary chocolates, champagne and petit-fours which were most delicious. We enjoyed a gorgeous meal at Baur’s Brasserie, which successfully balances both a refined and relaxed atmosphere, under the expert leadership of manager Rachelle. Breakfasts at Baur au Lac are definitely the best way to start the day, with a great selection from buffet and a la carte (the French toast will live on in my dreams!) and welcoming smiles and great attention from Dagmara and Patricia.
    The location of Baur au Lac could not be more perfect – views of the lake while only a few minutes walk from all the shops, restaurants and public transport. Our suite was beautiful and so comfortable. Whenever we phoned with any query, the response was always very courteous and prompt. Our sincere thanks to the wonderful Baur au Lac staff for making our stay so memorable! (Olivia O – Tripadvisor)
