Words really can't describe this experience, this really is a truly magical hotel hence why it was voted the readers best hotel worldwide by the Telegraph. My visit was for a relatives wedding otherwise this experience would have been totally un-obtainable!
The service was exquisite. Each cubicle in the ladies powder room was bigger than my entire bathroom! The grounds made for some stunning pictures and the floating pool is spectacular.
The courgette flowers with truffle were really beautiful and appear as a specialty dish. I recommend the steak, I doubt I will ever eat a steak like it again; it melts in your mouth.
This would most certainly be outside of my price range as rooms were anything upwards of £800 per night particularly those with a view over the lake. If you have large pockets and are looking for a once in a lifetime experience I would recommend Villa D'Este.
