The hotel is nineteenth century and more like a small palace, both in terms of its size and in the decor and furnishings. The staff are helpful and polite, if not always entirely clued up. The rooms are a good size, clean, comfortable, well appointed and quiet. There's free WiFi available, but it's slow and you have to ask for... More

Love Italy never thought anywhere would top Lake Garda.....but this hotel and location did! From arriving at the hotel we were made to feel welcome by all the staff, our garden view room was charming and spotless - daily maid service was excellent. The included breakfast... so much choice you could eat something different each day and the staff so... More

GHIB is THE luxury palazzo of Stresa and the only leading hotel of the world venue you were looking for in town (even if not part of the LHW group) Old doesn't mean not renovated as the owner obviously invests on a regular basis in this 1863s building. Location is key in Stresa : you want to be ON the... More

Beautiful hotel justly deserving all the good things one would want to say about such a prestigious place. The staff were wonderful; professional, helpful, friendly, well presented and personable. The room was beautiful, excellent (adjustable!) air conditioning, additional topping available for (rather too firm) beds. Food excellent, breakfast plentiful, aura in bar relaxing and sumptuous. But the pool area? What... More

What can you say about a 5 Star hotel that hasn't been said before? This a 5 Star hotel with many un- listed extras. The service is impeccable but not in your face, or in anyway patronizing. The staff are excellent and seem to really enjoy what they are doing. The food is very good and well presented. The hotel... More

The location of the hotel is amazing and the property is very nicely kept. the rooms are nice even if not huge and the view from the rooms is breathtaking (lake view). We feel service at the hotel is not up to his luxury status, though. Pool service was non existent. We were told to go back to the lobby... More

What a superb hotel - absolutely faultless! My husband and I recently stayed in this beautiful hotel. I can honestly say that it really is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. First impressions count, so when the buildings facade quite literally takes your breath away it was a great start. Friendly reception staff, a room upgrade... More

The grand hotel borromes is a real gem overlooking lake maggiore in stresa, Italy. With a facade reminiscent of the hotel negresco in nice, it's beautiful 19 century architecture is highlighted outside by flowers overflowing from flower boxes clinging to all of the balconies overlooking the lake as well as an impeccable garden setting, and inside by delicately hand painted...

I will start with the negatives we were disappointed with the welcome on arrival and the concierge was a little aloof. Breakfast was okay but have experienced better. We were very disappointed with the pool area not very inviting and did not return as you have to walk around the front of the hotel in your swimwear. The hotel is... More
