The hotel is by Lake Maggiore, if you have an opportunity to have a room with 'lake view', then you will not be disappointed. The staff are very friendly and the grounds are kept in good condition, we had tea and coffee with other family...More

While the hotel is a decent (however expensive) place, we felt like the restaurant must be way past it's best times. Only after eating there we learned that the Sole di Ranco once upon a time must have had a Michelin Star, otherwise we wouldn't...More

We had a really great dinner there. The 50 euros menu is just fantastic and so valuable for that price. Perfect service and gentle staff.

We have been here several times over the last few years and have never been disappointed. This year again we pre-booked a few weeks earlier and had an excellent seed with a brilliant view over the lake for a midweek lunch. To summarise it briefly,...More

Do not eat all day, if you plan on having a meal here. We had booked a 4 course meal, but it turned out to be many more courses, if you count all the little dishes that came as well. I haven't eaten such delicious...More

You simply must eat here, it is fantastic! The view is lovely, the staff delightful and the food amazing. We have eaten here for dinner, lunch and we enjoy the breakfasts when we stay in the hotel. Truly memorable
