Reviewed 17 November 2017

We stayed at the Hotel Simplon for three days in October and wanted to stay on but they were closing on that day (even though the hotel was almost fully booked) so we booked into their sister hotel next door.
The Simplon has beautiful gardens and hope they don't mind but I bought back for Christmas decorations some of their enormous cones that had fallen in the garden. We were very lucky with the weather but not quite warm enough for their very inviting pool. You could walk through to their sister hotel which was just fantastic. Beautiful art on the walls and carpets you sank into. Rooms were pretty small but very clean. Reception staff very helpful. No air con which was a problem as it had turned very warm but they had apparently turned it off. Short walk to the town which has some great bars and restaurants and boat trips around the Lake. Would definitely return if in the area again.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights this summer and we had a good experience. The rooms are cleam and the hotel staff is very friendly. The best part is the wonderful swimming pool in the garden. A bit noisy and busy during this season.

This place was absolutely stunning, located in Baveno on Lake maggiore its an opulent setting for a great price. Reminded me of old style 1920s glamour, the decor was stunning and the rooms well furnished and the beds extremely comfy. The indoor pool was something else too.

Went for a week end of season to this hotel. Blown away by the opulence: marble, gilt and glass everywhere in traditional ducal style. Service at reception was perfect: friendly and professional.

Room very good although we thought we ordered a suite but that was no doubt the agent's fault. Great views over lake.
Sister hotel accessed by the most spectacular tunnel ever encountered. Great luxury and beauty. The Dino is a conference hotel dominated by large groups of employees engaged in ludicrous and irrelevant team building activities but that leave s more room for holidaymakers. Fantastic and empty indoor swimming pools. Outside pools very cold in mid September. Close to the ferry access so very convenient to get the isles, Stresa and Villa Taranto, all must sees.

Food generally good and plentiful. Francisco the Maitre d' is exemplary.We felt in safe hands.
Overall highly recommended

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near lifts due to noise of people emerging. Get rooms at either end of building

We visited the Simplon Hotel in September as part of a Saga tour.
The hotel is luxurious with high quality facilities including a large outdoor swimming pool and a large indoor pool. Staff were very pleasant and friendly. The rooms were well equipped with a comfortable bed.
The food was outstanding with a comprehensive buffet available at the start of every evening meal. The following courses were of an excellent standard and the service was good.
I recommend this hotel without exception.
