This is a perfect place to relax. A good hotel for couples; no children. There is a great spa, only a little difficult that not all personnel speaks English. Food is excellent and served on the big terrace with a nice view. The room we booked had a small balcony, with a view to the neighbours. We were lucky we... More

Highlight of our 40 day tour of the middle and top half of Italy. Discovered too late as we are in the last week of our holiday and had family to visit. Elegant decor, warm, friendly, and efficient staff. The view of the lake is calming. Perfect place to unwind after Milan! Booked for one night, immediately extended one day... More

The hotel which is on the western slope of Maggiore 10 minutes north of Verbania and 30 south of Locarno is a little difficult of access but worth the effort. The staff were exemplary and the breakfast outstanding. The top floor is given to the Spa which seemingly is brand new and quite beautiful. Both the Spa area and the... More

We had a wonderful 4 week trip through Europe that spanned across numerous countries including, Belgium, France and Italy. This was by far the best hotel we stayed in! The room was large, with living space, kitchen, separate bedroom and large bathroom. The first thing that struck me was how clean everything was, it was literally spotless. Add to that... More

I explored internet before going to Maggiore. What I have to say - area itself is absolutely fabuolus.Lake, mountains, fresh air, silence. Dream. I would love to have a house somewhere here. Hotel is good in general. I would not call it fantastic. Make sure you have lakeview room. Other rooms are not an option for stay. Breakfast is not... More

Wow. We have just had a 3 day stay at this fantastic hotel. The view from our room over Lago Maggiore was quite breathtaking. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Ok not a holiday for children but if you want to relax in the sauna, steam room ot jacuzzi then this is a great place to stay. It... More

Residenza Dolce Vita is a great hotel in a quiet location overlooking a beautiful old church and Lago Maggiore. The restaurant is fantastic, with a great wine selection and great service. Breakfast is good as well...includes eggs and meats. The spa is also very relaxing, and you can experience some unique Ayurvedic treatments that I have not found in the... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights - was a great place to unwind. The reception staff were outstanding, and the restaurant very good. Chef was very friendly and welcoming. Very clean - very spacious rooms. Highly recommend!
