The Locanda Chi Ghinn is truly spectacular, both in terms of service and location. The view overlooking Lake Maggiore is simply stunning. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, the hotel is beautifully furnished and clean and the location, nestled below the village church is enchanting. Although I have to agree with others that the parking is not great. However,... More

My wife and me went for a nice long weekend to the lago maggiore, the hotel in Bee was just perfect. Amazing view over the whole lake. Just a few rooms and very cosy. The only minus point is the parking, they don't have a lot close to the hotel. For the kitchen I can just say that I haven't... More

The hotel is self is not a success: no posiblity to park the car close to the hotel and you have to take your bagage from the village parking place about 300 m from the hotel.

We were recommended to this restaurant by friends so went for lunch. Top of the mountain in the town of Bee with the most stunning view imaginable. Beautiful garden setting: elegant, peaceful, professional, perfect! The daily menu was priced at 37Euro which we thought was a little high - until our meal started arriving! The three course meal also included... More

High quality extreme friendly service. Excellent food and... More

Wow. After spending a couple of weeks in Provence, we had only a short time to get to Zurich to catch our flight. Our first inclination was to drive as far as we could and stay by the side of the road, until our French hosts booked this incredible hotel for us. We were not prepared for our experience, truly...
