We slept so soundly in the quiet room, in the comfortable bed that we had to rush down to breakfast before the end of service - always... More

An excellent hotel with excellent staff and very classy decoration and beautiful view of the lake. The surroundings are marvellous and very peaceful. The location is superb for visisting the lakes. Totally worth it!

We were on our way back to the UK and we needed to stay somewhere for the night. Before Milan we stopped and tried to call a few hotels, hostels if they have any avaliable rooms for three.

This is a lovely grand building with wonderful old-world charm splendidly located among a charming garden on top of a hill. However - a modern up-to-date hotel it is not. The rooms are very basic and in desperate need of an upgrade. The furnishings are worn and tired and the shower barely functional. No air-conditioning makes the rooms very stuffy... More

Hotel is very nice. Old glory and very nice view. But if you want to eat, please don't stay at the hotel restaurant. Food is all frozen and far to expensive. We had the fried fish with vegetables. No taste at all! And it was fried to lang and black.....to bad for a 4* hotel.
