First and foremost, the double bed in the "superior room" was actually made of two single beds put together, so that after 5 minutes there was a gap between the two mattress. Absolutely disappointing. The AC wasn't good enough to modify the room temperature. It's definitely overpriced. Dinner was good, but overpriced. The service in general was below expectations. I...

My expectations prior to arrival were modest in view of the photo's I had seen on this and their web site. On arrival after a full days travelling, a welcome alcoholic beverage and a meal I thought would be grand? This notion quashed before I even traversed the uneven steps to room 5; where the door handle always came away... More

Il Sole di Ranco is located in the little village of Ranco on the southern end of Lake Maggiore and while set a little ways away from the major tourist centers on the lake like Stressa it is easy to get to them either by car or boat (ferry). The hotel sits in beautiful grounds with a lovely view of... More

Everytime we go to Italy we stay heren for 1 nicht, with our 2 daughters. The rooms maybe a little pricy but the picture fits. We had 4 Ranco menu's for dinner and it was great. Our youngest daughter described the dessert as heavenly and the best she ever had, and she had a few all over the world. For... More

The hotel was previously a Relais & Chateau, it is not anymore, and it shows...personnel is cool, does not much care. Our room smelled the gutter, the AC did not cool, forget Wifi, bed linen is old and hard....checked the Velux window in the bathroom, completely rotten full of bacteria...conclusion: we checked out (had to pay the upcoming night though,...

Staying here on a business trip it has an amazing view. We splurged and opted for the lake view room which costs more but worth it. Great friendly service, everyone speaks good English, food is incredible. The pool area is well cared for and except for the multitude of lizards around (which don't bother you at all) it's an ideal... More

We decided to spend our last night in the Lake District of Italy in order to be close to Milan airport. My husband "trusted" relais et Chateaux and Michelin and booked this hotel for our last evening. Foolishly he did not check Trip Advisor - a mistake we will never make again). We drove from Bologna expecting to have a... More

We took 2 rooms here for ourselves and our 2 teenage children. The setting is beautiful, right beside Lake Maggiore with lovely views. However that's where the "luxury" ends. The rooms (although with lake views) are dated and tired and seriously need a decor overhaul. The beds are rock hard, as are the pillows. Bathrooms do appear a little more... More

A beautiful place. Charming atmosphere. Excellent view over the lake. A very good restaurant. Nice staff. We brought our two year old grandson and he was warmly welcomed by the staff. On the first evening somerhing was wrong in the ketchen. Like an orchestra without a conductor. But eventually whatever it was it was sorted out and we had a... More

The location and the setting is very nice. Food is delicious too. So, where are the issues? Rooms are average and tatty, with 1970 bathroom fitments, old warned out carpets. The key issue though is Management: rude, unhelpful, unfriendly: they will deal with you as if you had booked at an overcrowded campsite. No attention, no courtesy, purely arrogant. I... More
