The service at this hotel was extraordinary. Every single staff member we encountered was pleasant and helpful. Great hospitality! Our views of the lake were stunning. The pool area was a fantastic place to spend a few days recharging after heavy sight seeing. This hotel is well located. The rooms (we had a suite) was well appointed and very luxurious.... More

Nice staff, clean rooms, comfortable beds, not enough sun loungers and pool is freezing. Breakfast is 25 euro per person and also finishes at 9.45am so didn't eat in the hotel. Car parking is 10 euro per day so it soon mounts up. Well located for sight seeing although if you are not going to use hotels facilities then it... More

Impressive frontage sets things off as you arrive. On the banks of this beautiful lake and if you pick a room with a lake view, you get an impressive vista every day. Decor everywhere is stylish and expensive. The rooms are well appointed and cleaned ever day. For three in a room, it can get a bit tight but still... More

We have stayed many times in this hotel and have found the disabled facilities to be excellent. The bathroom is very well equipped with a padded drop down seat in a beautifully decorated wet room. There are many well placed grab handles and the bed is a good height for wheelchair transfer. The balcony has a tall plastic lip and... More

I stayed here years ago and remembered it as a Grand hotel. But our recent trip was disapointing. The lobby is still lovely. Our room had a balcony with an amazing view. The bed was not comfortable and the pillows should be thrown in the trash. The table cloth on our balcony table had a cigarette burn, which shows a... More

The grounds, public areas full of antiques, lovely pool area and good restaurant hide some definitely 3 star rooms. The interior rooms, which in most hotels in the area usually just face back gardens, in this hotel face walls, particularly the singles. Breakfast is nice, and reception does a good job of the check in. Perhaps for a better experience,... More

A grand hotel in a great Lake front location. The hotel building and public areas are very grand, however the rooms are very dated which I find typical of Italian hotels. This is a real shame as the hotel could be amazing. However the view from the balcony made up for it! There are a lot of staff, however the... More

This place really is something special, although the lake front is not shy of grand looking hotels I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The building is beautiful, rooms spacious and the hotel grounds kept in immaculate condition. The hotel wasn't too busy during our stay which was a few weeks prior to the school summer holidays. We were upgraded to... More
