If you are in the fortunate position of planning a visit to Baveno and this hotel had rooms available, do yourself a favour right now and stop reading this review and book the hotel whilst you can! Then come back and I will tell you whilst you made an excellent decision :)
Location: A lot of hotels say they are on the lake, but actually most of them have a road between you and the lake. Not here. You have breakfast on a terrace with the lake 5 steps away. There is even a beach owned by the hotel where you can relax.
The location is also great WRT traveling: it is dead easy to find by car and the boat jetty and rail station and indeed the main part of baveno are a 5 min walk away.
Cleanliness: the hotel is spotlessly clean from top to bottom.
Staff: this has to be the friendliest, most helpful staff I have ever come across. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they even gave us a free bottle of Prosecco when we checked out.
Food: breakfasts are an excellent selection of typically continental dishes. We are dinner in the hotel once and it was excellent in both quality and value.
Overall, as you can see, we cannot speak highly enough of this place. We will definitely return as soon as we can.
