We booked this hotel after using trip advisor to compare hotels in this area. We booked a side view room but we were upgraded and had a big balcony which had a good lake view. The room was amazing, there was a little sound from the street below but I slept so well it was almost as good as my own bed!
We've never encountered such friendly staff, everyone was so helpful and went out of their way to provide advice & make sure all the guests had a good stay.
The food was good, good selection at breakfast and breathtaking views from the terrace. Evening meal was possibly the best I've ever had - panzerotti in white truffle sauce - i highly recommend it and discount for hotel guests was the perfect finishing touch. The only negative was the coffee at breakfast wasn't very hot but this seemed a common theme at the hotels on the lake front and the selection of juices compensated.
Good transport links with frequent ferries, busses and a train station in nearby Varrena made this a good base for exploring the lake and nearby Milan. We also went to the F1 at Monza which took about an hour via ferry&train.
The perfect base we cannot wait to return, you won't regret booking this hotel.
