"Yummie" location, "yummie" people, "yummie" food. A "yummie" hotel! Dogs are aloud . Rooms are big enough and everything is at hand. When the weather is good, breakfast and dinner outside. Boat, bike, vespa rental

Stayed for 3 nights as part of Leger Picturebook Italy Tour. Had a room overlooking the lake so beautiful view. Breakfast was plentiful & self service. Portions at dinner were not very big & would not suit someone with health appetite (fine for us), not sure if this was because we were part of a coach tour though. The other... More

Entrance into the water could be much cleaner.Staff could move some rocks and take better care of sand etc. Very average food at high prices. Long waiting for service. Please hire better cook. Rooms ok, especially on top floor. First floor rooms... More

We love Italy...we love Lago Maggiore...and we LOVE Hotel Ghiffa!!! Do you wanna know why? Because it's uncomplicated. If you ASK, everything is possible. ASK what you like for breakfast or for dinner and you get it. ASK when the airconditiong does not work as you want and it is controlled. The owners and staff are the most friendly people... More

The only good thing is basically the location, right at the lake. Wonderful views if you geta lake view room. But that's it. We had to ask on the second day if someone would clean our room and change towels as they seemed to have forgotten us. It was very difficult. Prices for the food are overrated and not worth... More

We arrived at hotel Ghiffa expecting a quality hotel based on the internet pictures and the cost. We were wrong... The downstairs of the hotel are quite nice, but the rooms were small, uncomfotable and above all CHEAP. Pillows like cardboard, the bed im sure was picked up at a car boot sale for about £10.

We needed 4 rooms for our family and friends on a vacation from India to Switzerland. The hotel is perfectly located and most if not all rooms face the lake. The service and personal attention was exemplary and definitely a recommend for a stay. The only negative point was that the air conditioning is poor and requires drastic improvement.
