We stayed 6 nights in June,first impressions were faded elegance ..but not so, everywhere is immaculate,carpets;lounge;terrace;we had a lake view room with balcony and the views were stunning,the room was large and air conditioned,bed very comfy,also a fridge..breakfasts were good though not quite as good as other breakfasts elsewhere on our travels,the head waiter "roberto" was really good,made you feel welcome and could not do enough for you...the staff were very happy and attentive,we would certainly return to this hotel...

Room Tip: really must get a lake view room,we had room 136=superb

We stayed here from 3 to 7 July to celebrate my husband's birthday, and as soon as the owner, Paolo D'Amico, knew that I want to organize a candle light dinner for the birthday when we were still exchanging e-mails for the booking he offered a complimentary cake and Prosecco! I was already sure we will have an enjoyable stay at a hotel that knows what hospitality is.
This was only the beginning! As soon as we arrived the nice Lady at the reception greeted us warmly and guided us to our room, we found out that they upgraded us to the Winston Churchill suite (we originally booked a deluxe) this was a delight! And as my husband loves history, it meant a lot to him to stay in the Sir Churchill suite :)
The place is really great and special, the in room Jacuzzi is a real treat, very relaxing and convenient... It was great to be able to have a hydrosonic massage at the convenience of our room not having to go to the Wellness or to watch opening times... A great way to get rid of stress and tiredness.
Roberto in the restaurant will always remember your favorite drink in the morning and how you like your eggs... He also knows a lot about the palace and the region, he would tell you many stories with great passion. He also proved to be a talented Tenor when he sang happy birthday in Italian to my husband :)

The fitness studio is basic but functional, you have what you need to exercise while enjoying the view!

The location is ideal because it's about 700 m away from Baveno centre, which makes it relatively calmer, and you can reach the ferry and the town in 10 mn walk. The walk along the lake is very enjoyable.

Thanks to everyone in Lido Palace for doing everything you could to let us enjoy our stay... We are delighted and will definitely come back.

We had a wonderful four night stay at this grand old hotel -with the most beautiful views all round. The staff, Roberto and Paulo and the ladies were amazing, I have never felt so welcome and looked after in a hotel. The room 136, was amazing, a standard booking but with lake view and a jacuzzi bath and such a comfortable bed. The hotel is full of old world charm, and what better recommendation than Churchill and Queen Victoria staying here in the past. (They are both famous for residence taste - have you ever been to Osborne House or Chartwell?) Love love love this hotel, will definitely go back and recommend to everyone.

Room Tip: All lake view rooms would be great. Winston Churchill suite if you want something special.

A lovely grand hotel, much more tasteful than the more 'spruced up' hotels in nearby Stresa. It could do with a lick of paint here and there but its a minor gripe.The boat terminal is a 10 minute walk away along the edge of the lake. The boats are by far the best way to get around this part of Lake Maggiore. The rooms are clean and high ceilinged, the bathrooms are marble, with a good shower and bath. Definitely get a lake view room. The views are stunning and it is so wonderful to be woken by the sun streaming through your window every morning.

Paolo, the manager, could not do enough to help us, from planning a trip to Ascona using boats and buses, to providing whatever we needed for our room. His fellow staff are less fluent in English than Paolo but no less willing to help.
Although the hotel caters for coach parties (like most of the large hotels along the lake), it never felt crowded at all. In fact, with all the coach parties out for the day, you could be forgiven for thinking that the hotel was closed! That suited us, although those looking for more buzz in a hotel might want to look at the hotels in Stresa.
Breakfast was limited in terms of fresh fruit options and pastries but eggs and bacon was available on request and was very nice. We did not dine in the evenings in the hotel but the menu looked good.

Baveno is much quieter than Stresa, so those of you who want to be out wining and dining will need to use taxis. There are some nice little restaurants in Baveno though.

Overall, this hotel is just a lovely peaceful place to be, with well appointed rooms and attentive staff. and we will definitely be going back next year.

Room Tip: Lake view rooms are a must

I made a reservation at this hotel for 1 night before embarking on a longer journey. After the reservation was made, I wrote to the hotel to make a request. The response I received was so rude, I was stunned. I travel often and everywhere and I have never received such a response to a simple request regarding parking. Needless to say, I have cancelled my reservation and will be staying elsewhere. They have made us lose our taste for the area.

Dear Guest , still no news and no reply from you on how and when this " suppose "exchange of email concerning "parking "- happened. I have no records of it. Please double check in case it is the wrong hotel.

With my best wishes
