This charming hotel is beautifully located in the centre of this Alpine village. The service is exceptionally warm and courteous. The amenities include a brand new spa and swimming pool, shuttle service to the ski station, and a good restaurant with a fine list of Piedmont wines. Strongly recommended.

The restaurant is Excellent , However HAVING purchased an expensive bottle of wine It Was dissapointing to Have The flies removed with a spoon and That the excuse "it is September "
Oveall good hotel , good food and Excellent spa.

We stayed here for a four day ski holiday at the end of March. This is a really excellent hotel with great staff that went out of their way to make our stay a real pleasure. The hotel's ski bus service, both dropping off and picking up after skiing, was very efficient and speedy. Our car was stored in a secure garage compartment in the private garage of the hotel. In my opinion, this was well worth €15 a day. The hotel also has an excellent restaurant offering a reasonably priced 'menu' at lunchtime. We were invited to use the lovely new pool, free of charge, in the midst of the excellent new Spa. Limone is a delightful and interesting Italian town with many good restaurants, bars, ski/mountain shops and local food shops many of which offer delicious specialities of the region. The wonderful snow and bright blue skies were the icing on the cake of an excellent short break. I would recommend highly both this hotel and Limone.

The hotel has superb facilities. I was particularly impressed with the spa and treatments on offer - the staff were so helpful and friendly, we felt at ease immediately. I can highly recommend a massage! Limone itself is a beautiful small town, steeped in history with lovely restaurants and shops.

I am from Des Moines Iowa , USA .We get use to be treated well here in US , and from expirience i know is soo hard to find a hotel in Italy where CLIENT is treated in such a good way like in Grand Palais Excelsior---
I am talking not only about the front desk assistment , but about restaurant , (FOOD IS AWSOME) , people are all smilening ....happy tp be there :-))
I was in the SPA as well.... I thought i will stay there forever....such a profesionalizm ... All staff was soo well prepared.... just read in my mind what i really need...

Just got back from a 4 night stay at the excelsior. We had an apartment for me, Mrs S, my brother and my four year old daughter. The apartment was one of the bigger ones and was exactly as described on the web.
The hotel is in a fantastic location and Limone is a beautiful Italian small town(pop 1000). It has a small supermarket and a couple of good restaurants and bars (Bugato (sp) and the wine bar on the square are recommendations. It is not a great place if you want to party, a lot better if you want to avoid the party crowd and relax.
The hotel has a great swimming pool and spa but these are expensive. You can use the pool for free if you don't use their robe and take the slippers and towel from your room.
The breakfast is a typical hotel buffet but we didn't want to spend €12 a day so just popped 60m down the road for a coffee and pastries.
We flew in from Cuneo and didn't hire a car. There is a great bus that meets the Ryanair flight that takes you to Limone for €20 return. It might be difficult to park in Limone without paying the hotel charge for use of the car park.
We found we didn't need a car as the hotel provides a great mini bus service which transports you to a couple of runs. You ring the hotel if you are out and they pick you up usually within 15 mins. They only take you to Sole and Mannagio which are the nearest runs and not to Limone 1400 and Limonetta. You can however ski to these places from Sole. Mannagio is run by another company and is great for learners/kids but is not included in the main ski pass. There are ski schools at both places.

A couple of gripes would be that you had to pay for wifi (when will hotels realise that this is just a scam and reflects badly on them?) and for the use of the kitchen (we didn't use it)

In conclusion it was a ideal place for a short break with good service. We got a ski and hotel deal which included a discount at the Bottero ski rental shop. There was an option to buy a package that included dinner and the restaurant looked good and was full and was quite formal.
