Can't think of anything
Staff is extremely kind with the guests. breakfast has a lot of options and very well served. Our expectations were granted !
Dining was wonderful
Room on the small side but comfortable
Very good and rich Breakfast ,free parking,good location ,friendly staff.
Being just across the avenue from the beautiful lake and promenade; the gorgeous public rooms and bar on the lobby level; the wonderful breakfasts; convenient parking.
A bit of a walk from center of Stresa, if you are older. The bedrooms seemed a bit dated.
This hotel is absolutely stunning, both inside and out. The staff are teriffic and the rooms are very opulent, yet extremely comfortable. A stay here is a very memorable experience. It sits in a very central location, overlooking the prettiest lake, and only a 5 minute walk to the gorgeous township of Stresa.
There was nothing to dislike about this hotel! It was a highlight of our European trip.
Beautiful bulding and gardens. Capable and helpful staff. Knowing that Winston Churchill stayed there on his honeymoon made it seem very special to us. The breakfast (included) was very good.
Our room was on the back side of thehotel, facing the garden. At the top of each hour (up to and including 11 p.m.) a piece of music was played very loudly, a Beethoven excerpt witha tinny sound as from a hurdy-gurdy, which was very obnoxious, and disturbed our sleep. Also, when we asked for a recommendation of a restaurant for dinner, the concierge directed us to Mama Mia's, where we had second-rate service and food. We did not have lunch or dinner at the hotel becuase of the prices.
Everything about this hotel is excellent, staff, location and food. Breakfast is sumptuous, dining is most refined, the view of the lake is unsurpassable.
Hotel with a special something reminding one of the glorious times of the region. Compared to other similar hotels it has been well maintained and does not feel rundown. The gardens are gorgeous and very well kept. Breakfast is good and there is fresh orange juice.
The rooms are a bit small and "old school" but that didn't bother us. The rooms at the front of the hotel offer a great view of the lake but could be a bit noisy as a road passes in front. We took a garden view room which was very quiet, less expensive and still offers view of some hills/mountains.
view is spectacular, room amenities are very good, marble bathroom was very functional and pleasant
Can't think of anything I did not like.
We had passed this hotel on previous visits - hence - I wanted to stay here !. We stayed here for 1 night only as it's not cheap but the experience was wonderful. The hotel is quite simply beautiful. All the staff we came into contact with were extremely friendly and helpful. You feel special staying here. The highlight for us was the breakfast on the terrace outside - overlooking the lake. We were lucky with the weather - sunny and no winds. Breakfast was like a scene out of British TV series Downton Abbey !. Brilliant. And the breakfast was A1 - hot food, cold food - even smoked salmon which was beautiful with the scrambled eggs plus they serve the coffee beautifully in individual jugs for each table. The corridors on each hotel floor are a trip into history with paintings and statues. We loved it.
It's not cheap but you can see why.
Great service from a friendly staff.
The grounds and the location
Poor service at the pool. Haughty, pompous staff. Stuffy, old fashioned atmosphere.
some front desk staff
Everything! The hotel combines it's great history with an up-to-date high level of comfort. Friendly and helpful staff, nice and spacious rooms, great breakfast buffet and excellent (outside) swimming pools
The staff at the concierge desk were brilliant. We had a problem with the GPS in our car and they went out of their way to help us solve our problem.
A hotel of this standing and cost should have a chef cooking fresh eggs and pancakes, etc at breakfast. Dinner was stuffy and the food was ordinary. The dessert trolley was boring, tasteless and lacked any creativity !!
Well located for trips around the lakes. A grand hotel but rather spoilt by reproduction chintz rather then period splendour. Beautiful gardens in an equally beautiful setting
The bar staff attitude was poor considering the high prices charged
Very helpful staff, clean, comfortable, decor etc very good
For such an expensive hotel the breakfast was poor. Cooked breakfast was scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon every day. No other hot options, nothing like pancakes etc. At more than £300/night B&B would expect much better.
We liked everything
outdated room, bathroom plastic appliances and not clean, poor quality of breakfast buffet and overall staff service main street is 50 meters from hotel can be noisy bed was poor quality
Location Food Facilities Attitude of the personal
The hotel is fabulous, well situated in front of the beautiful lake, they also have a nice spa, beautiful well kept gardens and the staff are efficient and very service oriented. The breakfast was varied and of high quality. I would like to thank the staff of this amazing hotel for their hospitality.
Loved the Belle Epoque style of hotel. Great location few minutes walk from the centre of the town and easy access to the ferry to the nearby islands. Staff and facilities were great. We had one evening meal in the hotel and the food was excellent, though very expensive.
The cost of rooms at the front of the hotel overlooking the lake were far too high - almost double rooms facing the back! In our room (facing the back) the noise of the fountain and the chime of the clock on the hour were really annoying.
Wonderful location, luxurious accommodation, friendly staff, the perfect holiday
