We booked the Lido Palace Hotel for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We had stayed here previously 23 years ago and loved it so much we thought it would be great to return for this occasion. I was a bit worried returning somewhere that held such special memories in case it wasn't the same but I needn't have worried.
I emailed the hotel before we left to ask if it was possible to make sure we got a room with a good view as we had previously been blown away by the views of the islands. I got a lovely email back from Paulo D'Amico saying that he would make sure we had a nice room. We were warmly welcomed by the girl at reception who said we had a choice of two rooms and we got to look at them and allowed time to choose. We were also given a beautiful bunch of flowers and a bottle of Prosecco was brought to our room.
Throughout our say the staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly and made you feel most welcome. The hotel was a lot quieter than our previous stay but it only added to the relaxed atmosphere.
The breakfasts had sufficient choice and it was lovely to sit at the tables next to the open French doors overlooking the lake. We ate two evening meals which were lovely with plenty of choice.
The hotel makes you feel like you have stepped back in time as does the view which seems like it hasn't changed for hundreds of years. I have been to Lake Garda too but Lago Maggiore beats it hands down. The Lido Palace is the best located hotel for views and access to cafe's and restaurants which are a short walk into Baveno. Baveno is much smaller and more chilled out than Stresa. If we ever return (which I hope we do) I wouldn't chose to stay in any other hotel.
Thanks to all at the Lido Palace for making our anniversary a very memorable and special one.
