Most hotels along Lake Maggiore are elegant looking properties with beautiful landscaping. Regina Hotel was a short walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants. Great chocolate stores. Hotel itself was like walking into the past. Our room was huge and facing the Lake - so lucky. We were able to open the window and stand on the balcony which was filled with flowered vines. Hardwood floors and lots of marble and a crystal chandelier - large bathroom too. Free slippers and bathrobes were in the room. Service was excellent in the bar. Restaurant was large but we only did the free breakfast buffet which was fine. Service slow in restaurant. Not sure if any of the waitstaff spoke a lot of English.
About a 45 minute ride to Lucarno Switzerland.
We took a boat ride to Isola dei Pescatori for dinner (short walk to boat dock) - fish was excellent!More
