Talk about kid freindly, this hotel caters on every angle. They have a dedicated kinder centre on level 1 for Children with two large rooms dedicated to fun.
We stayed with our 2.5 yr old and 8 week old baby, and stayed in a 80sm apartment style room with a small kitchette. A spacious living room and dining table and huge balcony (Accessable from the bedroom and living area) overlooking Lake Maggiorre.
The restaurant offered a half board option that was value for money with Breakfast and dinner, and enable the hasle free aspect of not having to find a restaurant to eat in that allowed chilren to be themselves. The staff were friendly from the reception, to the wait staff in the restaurant and the housekeeper was always greeting us with a smile.
The only downside is the decor, which is a throwback from the 70s in mustard yellow lounge and brown 70s dining table and chairs, but very comfortable for its age without any sag. I understand that this is due for a makeover this year, so this should lift it to the 2010 era.
At 350 chf a night, its a bit on the high side, but given the room size, meals and location, it is good value, and we would definately stay there again.
