The hotel which is on the western slope of Maggiore 10 minutes north of Verbania and 30 south of Locarno is a little difficult of access but worth the effort. The staff were exemplary and the breakfast outstanding. The top floor is given to the Spa which seemingly is brand new and quite beautiful. Both the Spa area and the terrace of the restaurant have wonderful views of the lake.
We would have given it a 5 * but for the ambiance of our room which otherwise was fine but a little cold, as was the entrance to the hotel.
We would definitely go again but you need to shop for an accepable price.More
