Located on the 'Lago Grande' in Avigliana, the hotel is about a 12 minute drive from the orbital motorway around Turin. It's about 35 minutes from the airport (traffic permitting), about 45 minutes from the centre of Turin, 45 from the major ski resorts and only 15 from the amazing 'Sacra di San Michele' 10th Century monastery perched on top of a mountain. Although Avigliana station is only a few miles away, taxi services are hard to find, expensive (and sometimes grumpy), so a car is essential.

There is a gym located below the hotel. It gets busy in the early evening and so it can sometimes be a bit of a problem parking close to the hotel. (The car park is vast however, but the far end has a gravel surface which can get rather messy during rainy periods.) The gym plays loud disco music on occasion which can reverberate throughout the building, but in my experience it doesn't go on too late into the evening.

Like many hotels, the rooms can vary. Most (or maybe all) rooms have been recently refurbished - however, some have been fully refurbished with modern fixtures and fittings throughtout, while some have been only partially refurbished, retaining some tacky 1970's fixtures and fittings. The rooms are clean, simple and rather basic, with satellite TV and (free?) wireless access. The beds are comfortable but the double beds comprise two single matresses placed side by side. Groovy! The rooms have a wonderful view over the lake. On occasion the hot water can be discoloured, but I imagine that it has been treated and therefore is clean and poses no risk. On one occasion there was a bad pong from the drain in the bathroom, but this was only temporary.

Breakfast is distinctly unexciting, but the restaurant / pizzeria next door is excellent. (It closes on Mondays, but the Domus restaurant / pizzeria a mile or so away, and also on the lake - is a good alternative.)

The Hotel is easy to find on the shores of the lake, with lots of parking although there is a gravel car park which is not so good for wheely luggage. The room was a bit small although the view over the lake from its balcony was great. It looks towards the hills but the mountains are behind the hotel so they are not part of the view. The service was quick and efficient. The breakfast was simple and in the small area at the back of reception which doubles as an area where afternoon drinks can be taken. The reception staff looked after drinks and breakfast.
Next door was a great restaurant - the staff were excellent and looked after us very well.

Lovely friendly staff and an amazing location by the lake. Large room with wonderful views and big bathroom. Clean and with working air conditioning.
Take your mozzie repellant though, they're fierce by the lake.
