A great place, with a perfect location, a 5 min walk to the train station, right front of the lake and on the street leading to the main square. The rooms are small, but perfectly adequate. I cannot recall an iron in the room, and there is no mini bar or alcohol available to buy at the hotel. The best... More

Stayed here for 3 nights while we went to some concerts at the annual Moon & Stars Festival. Perfect location. Good shopping just outside the hotel as well. Will definitely be back for next year's concerts. Very friendly and helpful multilingual staff.

Hotel is close to the station and in a good position for the boats etc. Very clean, with friendly receptionists. No restaurant, but within easy distance of several restaurants. We had a lovely view from the front-facing bedroom, with balcony, but the room was small with a bathroom which can only be described as a joke. It was tiny and... More

A nice small but friendly hotel located close to the railway station and the lake. I had a smaller room at the back of the hotel. The room was clean, decent badroom, minibar, wifi and flatscreen tv. The hotel has no bar. Breakfast was ok but very basic. You can park the car in the public parking next to the... More

This hotel is perfectly located if you are travelling by train. From the station an easy walk of just a few minutes brings you to the hotel - the entrance is in a pedestrian zone. The hotel faces onto a piazza, close to the lake shore and the ferries. The old town is a short walk away. We had requested... More

After the Glacier Express and numerous hours traveling, Garni du Lac was heaven. Easy to find, short, less than 10 minutes from the rail station. Warm welcome and beautiful room overlooking Lake Maggiore and the mountains. Cozy, comfortable, great breakfast in a delightful room, terrace available for warmer mornings. Convenient for ferries, restaurants, shopping and walks by the Lake. Staff... More

These are the reasons why we would come back and were happy about our stay: - reservation (directly, by phone) was handled very kindly, we got a room next door to ours for the children at a good price - the location is good, a few steps either from the train station and the Piazza Grande - the building is...

I had the opportunity to stay at the Hotel Garni du Lac last week for a business trip. The service is outstanding, the breakfast is fresh and included, the rooms were clean and the location is perfect. Shopping, outdoor cafes, lake and mountain right outside the door. I will have to find a way to bring my family over for... More
