Everything is lovely here. Although large, with some very grand public rooms and good facilities, it has a family feel and the staff are consistently kind and helpful (with excellent English). There are magnificent uninterrupted views of Lake Maggiore and the Boromean Islands from the bedroom balconies, and the hotel has a fascinating history illustrated with photos and memorabilia, which makes it feel really rooted in the area.
For anyone who likes the outdoors this is a particularly good base. There's a private beach allowing swimming in the lake. It's ten minutes walk into Baveno, a quick bus or taxi ride to Stresa, bike hire and the cable car to Mottarone. Best of all, paths to the mountains start just behind the hotel. I spent many wonderful hours hiking on well-marked paths, rewarded with amazing views from the peaks right into Switzerland. Then back to Lido Palace for delicious meals of Italian food. If you want, you can make plenty of interesting trips to locations round about, but it is entirely possible to enjoy a week or two without stirring far from the sunlit pool and shady gardens.
