The sheer elegance of this hotel is worth the stay. High on a hill, it is peaceful with amazing views of Lake Varese and the Alps. It is an older hotel, but we had no complaints with the room. Service was very good.

Friendly and helpful front of house staff who speak English. An excellent restaurant, that could perhaps change their menu more often, but food is good enough to repeat. Complimentary breakfast had many items, including bacon and eggs every morning. Our clean room was spacious, with free WIFI, and our window overlooked Lake Varese..

The stunning views and vaulted ceilings in every room are just the beginning of this fantastic hotel. The staff could not have been more accommodating. No shuttle service exists officially but the staff took care of our every transportation need and then some. The food was great and the dining room views were as stunning as the rooms. 5 minutes...

This hotel makes you feel special. Our room was very spacious and clean. The shower was very nice with marble but the water pressure was quite low. Views are amazing and the location of the hotel is nice and quiet. Although Varese is a horrible city to drive through the hotel makes you forget all this. Breakfast is marginal for... More

Beautiful location overlooking mountains and lake Varese. We were given a two room suite with 2 balconies with different views, huge bathroom which also had a sauna, a sitting room with desk, mini bar and kettle with tea and coffee, and large lcd tv with some english channels. Loved the elegance of the hotel -lobby with wide halls, high ceilings... More

Beautiful building of around 100 years old. This must have been a great 5-star hotel in the old days. It still keeps its charm, but it doesn´t have the comfort of a 4-star as it is rated today. The restaurant food is good but the menu is restricted. Good breakfast. The hotel is on the top of a hill and... More

This is a great place to stay. It is an impressive building from end of the 18th century, well maintained and it reminds you of the charm of these days. It is in the middle of a big park, on top of a hill, overviewing the area. The personnel is trained like in the old days, it is very important... More

You turn off the main road and drive up a steep winding lane for about half a mile to reach this hill top hotel. It is a grand building with great views over the countryside, lake and mountains. The main building is around 100 years old and has been well maintained. The bedrooms are quite large and well furnished. I... More

We had a great stay with our two 6-7 year old children. They have large 4 bed rooms although the two children would have perfectly fit into one of the normal beds. We enjoyed the old school character, feeling we were rich! Besides that the hotel has wifi, free bikes, tennis and a pool. Breakfast is fine and personnel very... More

This hotel enjoys a premium location on a hill and surrounded by beautiful gardens and walkways. It recently celebrated its 100th anniversary. It is a bit tired but certainly not in a bad state. Rooms are clean and classically furnished. My room had a nice desk, a big double comfortable bed and a very spacious bathroom. I stayed there during... More
