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

We were looking for a place to stay around Milan without ever being in the city, as a way of ending a two week trip that started in Venice. Normally at the end of a trip to Italy we stay at the Principe di Savoia in Milan and take a taxi to Malpensa airport to fly home. But this was... More

Being a Relais & Chateau property, we knew it would have the quality and standard we enjoy and we were not disappointed. Our suite looked straight out over Lake Maggiori. It was large and had an excellent en suite. It is within easy walking distance of lakeside cafes and parks. The restaurant is gourmet quality and beautifully presented. It is... More

We stayed one night and enjoyed a large double room (#10) with a view of the Lake Maggiore. This is a family owned, small Inn in a quiet, peaceful setting with a wonderful, fairly expensive restaurant. Breakfast consists of a buffet with many pastries, but if you want eggs etc., there is a charge of about 8 euro. The room... More

After a copious dinner on the terrace outside, we tumbled to our room. The best room of the hotel considering the view on Lago Magiore. Even from the lovely bathroom you can see the lake. The room itself is spacious and nicely decorated. With all facilities and services you would expect. The service is outstanding. The management and staff is... More

We stayed here this summer for the third time and it was as lovely as always. Staff is very kind and helpful at all times. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the bathrooms perfect. The infinity pool is marvelous. Having laid in the sun the whole afternoon, a staff member even came down to the pool with ice creams as... More

This was a quiet and elegant respite from the heat and crowds throughout Italy. Ranco is a small town on the quiet side of Lake Maggiore. We were originally booked for three nights, but enjoyed ourselves so much we decided to stay another night. We had a large room with a panoramic view of the lake and the infinity swimming... More
