My husband and I travelled with Shearings at the end of Jan 2016. Our room was on 5th floor at the back of the hotel with lovely views of the mountains. The room was comfortable and modern with most facilities I.e. TV with English channels, hair dryer, but as in most continental hotels there was no tea/coffee making equipment. However... More

This hotel was once a beautiful Italian building with a great atmosphere and friendly staff. Since it has been renovated the rooms have been stripped of their personality and made into small basic rooms. Not particularly clean, but not filthy. A room with a balcony and a lake view is essential, and the view is absolutely stunning. The food is... More

We visited for 6 nights with a Shearings coach trip. We paid £298 on top of the cost of the holiday to upgrade to a superior balcony room with lake view and were very angry to find people upgraded on arrival for €50 only, others who had booked through Cooperative travel only paid £25 per person. Needless to say I... More

This is the most terrible hotel and restaurant I have ever visited! The food in the restaurant was inedible! The only things I could eat were olives, pickles and pasta! No variety in meals and the only fresh vegetables were tomatoes and lettuce! The meat was always over cooked and so hard that was not possible to eat it! Even... More

What's not to like about this place? I never wanted to leave. Beautiful Hotel. Breathtaking views. Wonderful Staff. I could go on and on forever. I highly recommend this hotel. My friend and I stayed for 3 nights and we were certainly sad to leave.

Stayed here for 4 nights all inclusive over New Year with Leger Holidays and enjoyed it very much. Fabulous lakeside location with great views. We paid to upgrade our room and it was worth it as room was very good and clean although quaintly decorated as indeed was the rest of the hotel. The New Year's Eve gala dinner was... More
