When you're expecting something to be that special to be let down that badly really tainted and completly took the gloss off what was a fantastic four days in the lakes. Lake Orta, Maggiore and Como were magical as was mount Mottarone, awesome. The hotel however was tired and the gardens unkempt. The room was clean but not the wow expected. Have to say however tge service from all the staff was examplary and a cresit to them all. Our last night was to be the dinner experience of a lifetime from a 2 Michelin star chef! Again service impeccable but food was poor and all in all very disappointing. More than €400 for dinner for two when we'd had a much much better meal the night before (Locanda del buon riso) for €75 including a bottle of wine, you can't help feeling annoyed and ripped off. Our opinion admittedly but for what it's worth give this hotel and its restaurant a wide wide berth if you have any value for money.
