A most stunning view from our balcony across the Lake. Gardens and interior of hotel were excellent as were the staff attending to our requests. A very restful breakfast area where the food and service were exceptional with very friendly staff. Easy train travel available from nearby station and excellent pickup from Milan airport to the hotel.

My husband and I stayed 4 nights in late September. We had a beautiful lake-view room and left the curtains open to 'drink' in the views particularly Isola Bella. The staff were very friendly and helpful from Daniella at check-in to Pasquale in the breakfast room. The owner was a delight as well and thoroughly professional.

This hotel has some good features, but the poor outweigh them. The "Superior Double Room" turned out to be the size of a postage stamp. It was difficult to keep suitcases out of the way.
