What a lovely hotel. Right on the Lake. View was beautiful. The room was warm, cozy, big king size bed, large bathroom. Very clean an quiet. We were there mid October so there wern't many people staying there. Were told at the front desk the hotel closes Nvember 1 and doesn't reopen till Easter. It get really cold during winter,... More

Rated a 4 star hotel in Italy might be pushing it. The UK rating ... a good 3 star would be more accurate. In fairness to this hotel, it is undergoing refurbishment. Our coach party stayed for three nights during early October. Half of the party were lucky with refurbished rooms and were more than satisfied. The rooms still to... More

We found Restaurant very good for Lunch and Dinner - Bo, the excellent Manager really looked after us. However at Breakfast, where food was perfectly adequate, it seemed to be under-supervised, and on two mornings ran out of cereal bowls. No good when in a hurry! Our Lake View Suite, with glorious view and with Bed on Mezzanine Floor, would... More

Excellent hotel in superb location large very modern bedroom with bathroom and balcony and super view over Lake. The reception staff were very helpful and their welcoming attitude towards visitors reflected the excellent quality of management of this hotel. It's location almost certainty requires transport, a local lake boat service operates to Orta. Highly recommended we hope to re-visit.

There have been some fairly poor reviews of this hotel, but we have stayed here for a week on a Titan Tour and found it typical of Italian hotels - clean and functional. Many commented on the breakfast, well we are in Europe and this hotel provides a typical Italian breakfast. There was fresh fruit as well as tinned! Many... More

These ratings aren't finely defined enough as I'd say it was good but is let down by a few things including the tacky architectural style. The decor wasn't to my taste (ultra modern) and gave it (in dull and rainy weather especially) a cold and bleak ambience. On the plus side the food was mostly good (we didn't need four... More

Not very romantic although situated on the beautiful Lago d' Orta. A horrible modern building from the 70ties or 80ties of the last century, one asks himself how it has been possible to build such an awful concrete bloc on the shores of this lovely lake. Nevertheless, this hotel is well managed, our superior room was excellent and dinner at... More

The setting of this hotel is wonderful with views across the lake. It has a large pool and good sized gardens. We stayed on a half board basis and evening food was lovely with lots of variety, breakfast was mediocre. The staff were very helpful and always smiling- particularly at reception and the serving staff in the restaurant. Again, would... More

The lake view is stunning. The lake was warm and great to swim in. The pool is massive and inviting, it was 'fresh' to say the least. Our room was well apportioned. Agree with other reviews that the interior needs a little TLC (quite a lot actually). The breakfast was...functional. We were well looked after, but not quickly. Don't expect... More

Stayed just one night. Situation lovely, views over lake beautiful, very clean. A little dated but adequate. We had to move room as the air con would not work but they were very helpful, all staff were lovely. Pool area was good, great for families. Breakfast was poor, could do better there but it wouldn't stop me staying again.
