There is no question that this is a grand hotel and a grand setting for a restaurant, but grand doesn't translate to excellent without hard work by the staff. The menu was not terribly exciting, and some of the dishes not particularly well prepared. The service was mostly good, but not the uniform high level expected of a top class... More

For an excellent meal in luxurious surroundings this is the place for you. Don't miss the prima piatti lobster ravoli, on the a la carte menu. This was the best meal we had in Stresa, which naturally comes at a price. Here you get what you pay for.

Italian Cuisine at its very best. Fantastic service fantastic view at affordable price. The clasic risotto al Safrano is a must. It is also relatively affordable for an establishment of this class.

Had two excellent dinners whilst staying at this hotel. Be prepared to pay top London prices but we felt it was worth it. Service ambience etc were all up to the mark. Couldn't be faulted.

We went for a night from Milano. I really fell in love with the hotel. It's interior, while very well preserved, felt like from a different time. And service could not have been more attentive and friendly. It's an easy trip from Milano, first stop on the trains from Milano centrale towards Geneva or Basel. Then a 5 min walk... More

The hotel had a lot of character and was a pleasure to stay at. There was little to fault. The accommodation was well appointed and the bathroom was a delight. The views from the balcony were great even given we did not have the best weather. Breakfasts were well provided for and the service in the restaurant was efficient and... More
