Visited this hotel for a ten night stay booked through Inghams Travel. The vast majority of the experience was very positive. The location on the lake is stunning and the grounds and pool area very nice. Rooms were very nice especially the lake view (supplement paid). The air con, which was required due to the 30 deg + temperatures, was one of the best we have ever had, fully controllable and it did not annoyingly cut out when the balcony doors were opened unlike many others we have experienced. The only slight drawback to the location was its connections to Orta. Although there was a twice daily ferry stopping at the hotel a taxi was the only other way in and out of Orta if you did not have a car. There is no pavement to walk the c 2 kms to Orta and the road was far too busy to try to walk along.
We were on a fixed half board menu which was very good with only a few exceptions. Breakfast was good but although the choice was good it did not change at all over the 10 days. Maybe a different choice of fruit or meats/cheese would have been better but the quality was good. The toaster was painfully slow!! Dinner was in our case 4 courses with a set starter and sweet, a choice of pasta or soup for the 1st course and a choice of a meat of fish dish for the 2nd course. We did not notice the restrictions of this menu due to the fact that the choices offered were good and the quality excellent. Perhaps the addition of a salad alternative each day for the 1st or 2nd courses as a matter of course would improve the set menu but we were offered a salad as an alternative to the starter on one occasion. Although not used the A La Carte looked very good and the wine list was excellent and well priced and we enjoyed a very good local wine each evening.
Overall a very good hotel and a lovely holiday experience. We will likely return in the future.
