“We would rather change dates than hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We are just back from yet another wonderful stay at this truely charming hotel. Management seems to have a very generous policy of upgrading whenever possible. We ended up in the same gorgeous lake view suite that we had been given several times before (a warm thank you!).
That, the friendly staff, lively lobby, secluded beach, breathtaking views and well manicured gardens... everything converged to create a truely feel-at-home atmosphere.
From breakfast (taken al fresco, overlooking the lake), till night, enjoing a last cocktail on the terrasse, the day never fails to be enchanting: starting by a morning dive in the (rather cold) pool, visiting botanical gardens full of citruses and palazzi covered in XVIIth century paintings, lazing on the spotlessly clean beach with a favorite book or enjoying a shopping spree in nearby Milano (or, for the next few months, Expo2015), being picked up by boat to dine in one of the excellent restaurants of Isola dei Pescatori...
Our idea of a perfect vacation.

This was a pleasan surprise for us. Very friendly and professional service from reception till room service, bar man, breakfast service.
The hotel is in classic style, totally renovated, nice rooms for those with view on the lake. They were very accomodating although we have 2 dogs and a LOT of luggage. There was a mistake by them on the price, but I was partly to blame as , at check in, I did not correctly confirm the price. Stil, it was a nice experience and I can recommend it to anyone, myself I will be using it again for business clients.

Room Tip: Since you are at the lake it must be a room with lake view and I suggest minimum 3rd to 5th floor

We have stayed at Hotel Splendid a couple of times now en route to Tuscany from the UK. It is very close to the motorway and a perfect treat to banish the stress of the drive. We spent 2 nights here as it seemed a waste not to enjoy it.
It really is a beautiful hotel with immaculate gardens and terraces overlooking the very picturesque Lake Maggiore .
Our rooms have been lovely on both occasions. Italian in style, a little ostentatious in places but we just loved it.
As a family of 4, the rooms were spacious and the children adored having a very large bathtub to swim in and a walk in shower kept us adults happy too.
The beauty of the restaurant terrace forgives the mediocre food.
The concierge can arrange a water taxi from one of the restaurants which are in the middle if the lake to pick you up from the jetty. We had a wonderful meal and a great trip over the water.
We will definitely be back but hopefully for a longer break next time.
Looking forward to a nice glass of prosecco on the sun terrace very soon!

We stayed here on the last night of our 2 week road trip and were so pleased we made the two hour driving from como.

We had a very comfortable room in a nice hotel in Como but decided we'd see one more place and booked a suite here. When we arrived they upgraded us to an even bigger suite for free which meant we had this huge room on the very top floor with double balcony views over the Lake - stunning. The hotel was fab, a short walk into Baverno but they have complimentary bikes which are lovely to go off exploring on.
We ate in the a la carte restaurant where we chose to sit on the balcony and that was lovely and the cocktails were amazing!
Definitely recommend!

The room was not that big but the bathroom was huge. It has a shower box, bath tub, his and hers sink and of course toilet and bidet. We got the room facing the lake and it was beautiful. We could see the alps from the balcony and the sunrise was so pretty. Breakfast was excellent as well. When we were there for 2 days, they had sausages (2 types. The white one was so yum), 3 types of ham, swiss cheese, tomato/spinach and scrambled egg. The breads and cakes options were not bad either. They also have fresh fruits, which we do not see a lot in hotels in italy as they usually serve canned fruit. The health club looks very nice (will upload photos), too bad we didn't pack out bathing suits along. Service was excellent. We did not try to eat at the restaurant because we kept going to la trappola, restaurant around 700m away from the hotel, right opposite of Hotel Simplon, but i heard the food is good at the hotel's restaurant too.
