Hotel Cumbres Puerto Varas
Imposing first class hotel built in typical Patagonian style, with an abundance of regional wood, glorious panoramic views and a wonderfully cosy and welcoming lounge.
The first class Cumbres Patagónicas is an imposing, relatively large hotel built in a typical Patagonian style of wood and stone with a pitched roof. There are glorious panoramic views from its position on a hillock overlooking Lake Lanquihue and Osorno volcano in Chile’s idyllic lake district, while central Puerto Varas is only 5 minutes' walk from the property along the lakeshore.
Rooms are furnished in neutral colours and equipped with all mod cons. Some have a balcony, and large windows make the most of the views. An abundance of local wood has been used to create furnishings and décor with a regional ambience.
There's a wonderful lounge with open fires, sheepskin rugs, sofas and huge windows overlooking the lake. The adjacent restaurant has similar views and the food and service are very good. There is also a small indoor swimming pool on the top floor.
What our clients say
"This hotel has a superb location above the lake and we had a room overlooking the lake. It has good dining and bar facilities although we didn't have time to use the gym etc."IAR,Melrose
"Lovely rooms but let down slightly by sloppy service in the bar and restaurant. Having a hire car agent on site is a plus, however."MG,Winsford
Superb setting, excellent breakfast, charming staff.AJ St. albans
