Let me begin by saying the location is perfect with great views across to the Islands of Isola Bella and Prescadore from the sky bar. We booked a room with a balcony with these views.
I’m a bit confused by the Hotel as the Sky Bar/Spa is a lovely addition to any hotel with views like this but I found the rest of the hotel to be very dated. I guess when I was researching where to stay I was memorized by the photos of the sky bar and the front of the hotel but didn’t pick up on the other photographs of the dated interior.
The hotel caters a lot for tour groups and everybody holidaying seemed very pleasant. I’m not sure all the staff was happy in their work though.
Our holiday in May was, I guess, were still early in the season for the Hotel but trying to get anyone to serve drinks became a bit tedious. Often at the Sky bar we had to phone down to reception to get service up on the roof. Plus it was unacceptable to have the bar open downstairs and after a long wait each time have to enquire at reception if there was anybody serving, they would then have to phone up to the Sky bar to get the barperson to come downstairs.
We didn’t have dinner at the hotel but sat in the same room for the continental breakfast, which had limited choice of anything.
