“Good location”
Reviewed 6 July 2012

I agree fully with what damo 0808 said, but the room we had was small with a large balcony over looking the main road. The evening meal was four courses with choice but did not suit my palate, my husband liked most of it, and if you left acourse after trying it and did not like it they would offer you something else. Not many people stayed more than a couple off days.
there was a lot of coach parties, conferences and weddings. The hotel and staff handled them all so well. We stayed there ten days, and for us this was to long in Maggiore.

A wonderful hotel from the end of the 19th century, located first line to the lake, breakfast is very good, service is excellent, the boat to isola bella is only 50 meters from the hotel, loved the place!

Room Tip: lake view!!!

The hotel feels very grand. You can imagine travelers from many years ago strolling the grounds and sitting in the lobby. The staff was attentive and professional. The views cannot be beat. There are terraces and park-like grounds that give you plenty of places to enjoy. Being outside. There is a wonderful long corridor with lots of artwork that connects this hotel to it's sister hotel. Definitely take a stroll down that at some point. Our room was small, but comfortable and clean. The breakfast buffet was a disappointment. It was pretty limited, which did not seem to fit with the elegance of the dining room.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a room with a lake view. We were on the fifth floor, and our room had a little b...

Myself and my wife stayed from 13th June to 15th June as part of a conference (I was on the conference and my wife was enjoying a break). The location of the hotel is excellent; right on the water's edge and the views superb. The hotel itself is nice enough if a little old fashioned (lots of oak panelling) and is clearly well used as a conference and wedding venue.
Our room was a loft style conversion with mezzanine bedroom which was a little basic in appearance and quality. The balcony was on the small side with a nice view of the lake. However it's not what I would call a relaxing balcony ie. no loungers (probably not big enough). Another negative was that you had to pay 12 Euro's for the gym which I haven't come across previously. This is usually a priviledge for the paying guest.
Overall a pretty nice stay in a lovely area. Would come back to the area but possibly not the hotel.

Stunningly beautiful inside and out. Everything seemed new to us. This was the only hotel between Stresa and Baveno that would accommodate a family of four in one room. The room we got had two baths which was a nice surprise.

A little secret is the tunnel that connects this hotel with the Simplon. The tunnel is one huge art gallery. Fun to find and pop out quite aways across the street.

The two pools are fabulous. The view from the main dining of the lake is amazing. Dinner is a bit of a splurge there but worth it once. They kind of want you to dress up, but its not a problem.There is a dock for all the boats that travel the waters of lake Maggiorre right outside the front gate of the hotel.

About the only problem is wifi access, but who cares about that on vacation.

Room Tip: Go ahead and pay the 50 Euros for the lake front upgrade. Ours had a big outdoor deck with lounges a...
