Just returned from 5 nights at this beautiful hotel.As we booked the hotel seperately we took the Airport bus which runs every 2 hours from Malpensa Airport to the Lake Area at a cost of 12 euros each.It took an hour and 10 minutes and dropped us off in the centre of Baveno and the hotel was only a 2 minute walk away.All very easy and convenient. The staff are a credit to the chain and so efficient.Although our family room was on the road side of the hotel there was no disdurbance from the busy traffic outside.
The pool area is stunning and surrounded by pretty gardens.As we were on bed and breakfast basis , we ate out mostly and we found the prices to be quite reasonable .We visited Stresa twice , 10 minutes on the local bus 1.20 euro each. The last bus ,though, is 7.30pm either way so that means a taxi home at a cost of 15 euro. However, dining in Stresa gives more options and there is a lovely outdoor square with many eateries.
The supermarket ,on the corner opposite the hotel, is open every day and is very convenient for drinks and snacks.
The only reason I have not given 5 stars is that the drinks and evening meal at the hotel are so expensive but I would definitely return and highly recommend.
