Have just returned from a week at the hotel. There was a quite reasonable deal on Expedia for a garden view room so decided to go for this 5 star option. Good location a short stroll from Stresa along the promenade. We were upgraded to a lake view room which was a nice surprise as the views across the lake... More

Very very good hotel!!! But unfortunately its best times have gone. Cannot say excellent as for the hotel 5*lusso (luxuary) ther were some details which have spoiled the overall impression. 1) During three nights stay I could not manage them to leave the ash tree on the table on the balcony instead of bringing it inside. 2) very difficult to...

We loved our week here, although we've never been photographed by so many tourists while sitting on a hotel balcony - this place is seriously photogenic. If your taste runs to marble, stained glass, potted palms and marquetry doors, this is the place for you. It's a truly beautiful environment, with slick, professional, friendly staff, and the housekeeping of our... More

Our stay at this hotel was very enjoyable. Our room was very comfortable and the decor felt like old European. I loved the location of our room which was on the third floor overlooking the lake. We were on a walking trip and did not spend a lot of time at the hotel but found it to be enjoyable while... More

The building is extremely grand, living up to its name, with wonderful interiors and our room was very well appointed. Staff were generally very helpful. We only had breakfasts, the dinners appeared to be a bit pricey, and these were ok, nothing special. One gripe, wifi was not free and at €7 for a reasonable speed, not cheap. A hotel... More

My favorite hotels are kind of old-fashioned. But this place was a little bit past it's prime in a not-good way. Both the hotel and the surrounding area. It obviously used to be really happening, but it's not now. My companion compared the area to the Catskills. Now that air travel is cheap, why would you go to nearby mountains... More

The structure and the grounds are impressive and are located very close to the island ferries. The view of the lake from our balcony was really special, and the bathroom was well-equipped. As charming as the surroundings were, the inside of the hotel felt more outdated than it did classic. I'm not and expert on art nouveau, but there seem... More

Stayed here for a romantic weekend. It's a first class hotel on the banks of Lake Maggiore, with fabulous grounds, views and location. The staff are really helpful and friendly, providing plenty of suggestions for sights to see, places to eat and things to do. Our room was well appointed and comfy and even though we didn't pay the premium,... More
