We stayed here as part of a group for a week at the end of September. Although we had a great holiday, I would not rate this as a 4 star hotel. The location is poor, at the very end of Levere (although everything is within easy walking distance). The hotel is on what can only be described as a very busy road. There is a speed limit through the town but this does not appear to he adhered to by anyone. The road is quieter at night but still fairly noisy. We had booked a standard room and knew in advance that we had no lake view, however our room looked out onto a high wall !! The room was large, clean and the the bed was reasonably comfortable. There were extra blankets available and plenty of storage and hangers. The bathroom was also large and clean with nice white fluffy towels and a range of toiletries which were replenished daily.
Our room was above the gym and classes run until about 10:30pm. We were kept awake on a number of nights by a gentleman who talked rather loudly and incessantly until 1-2 am making it difficult to sleep with the window open.
Our group were staying on a half board basis and had a different menu to other diners in the restaurant. While I appreciate that our menu was part of our package, I expect the same level of service to be offered to all customers. The head waiter's attitude towards both his staff and the "package" diners left a lot to be desired with his priority appearing to be the "paying" diners. The other staff in the restaurant were extremely helpful and hard working, but the head waiter was arrogant and regularly shouted at the staff for what appeared to be very little and in front of the guests - this was something I really didn't like.
My main gripe is wine. I prefer rose and the first night I asked for it I was given it (at an extra charge) but on the same night another of our group was told there was none. The next night I asked the head waiter said there was none left, but some of the a la carte diners were drinking it.
Lovere is small and not yet geared to the tourist, but there were several good street cafe bars and restaurants that were not over priced.
