This hotel was renovated in 2008 and is a very comfortable a quiet location. It is located on the lake, by a park and you you an excellent view of the mountains as well
Spacy , nice room ,good restaurant , beautiful landscape
no French channel on the TV
The hotel is off the main road directly at the lake Varese. In summer it can get a bit noisy, but the rest if the year it is quiet. Rooms looking over the lake are nice.
Everything Breakfast had great choice
access from Switzerland
The staff was very kind and helpful. The lake is 20 meters from the hotel. Beautiful rooms
Rooms are a bit dark. Wi-Fi issues.
Great restaurant. Friendly and helpful staff Park near by
Antipasti buffet (cold) was extensive and delicious. You could choose that alone as your meal. Received complimentary hot antipasti as well. Staff member went above and beyond to help with dead car battery. Grazie mille!
Lighting in bedroom is not good for reading. It is set only inches above pillows.
The staff were very pleasant and readily provided added assistance during my stay. The service, selection and quality of the food in the restaurant were commendable..
Lovely setting, lovely staff, lovely room and great ristorante.
There was nothing to dislike.
Lakeside location, lake view rooms are the best. Small balcony. Modern décor but well appointed. Minibar. Good restaurant with friendly staff. Good buffet breakfast with wide choice On site car park
Could do with 2 chairs in the room, maybe a chair on the balcony as well. The rooms not facing the lake face the MV Augusta Factory, which is OK if you are a motorbike fan, but may not be if you want a nice view. There was no noise from the factory so don't be put off by this
Evening meal very enjoyable, especially the buffet starters.
Bit difficult to find.
Kindness of all the staff in the hotel.
The mosquitos outside night and day. Breakfast at 10. am if you arrive a little late (a quarter to ten) there is nearly nothing left ;
Staff. Room. Wifi
Good dinner but too busy most days.
Food and staff
-Very friendly staff -spacious and nice rooms -good food -nice covered terrace
We booked it for its proximity to the Motorcycle factory. It couldnt have been nearer. The other side of a hedge. As well as that it is on the lake and has a good resaurant.(closed Wednesdays).
Hotel is placed in very nice location . Rooms clean and food very good .
The hotel is far nicer than the picture would make you think. Staff very friendly and the food was excellent.
There was a party in the hotel next door which was very noisy. Luckily the balcony windows were double glazed so it wasn't too much of a problem.
quiet/lake side siting/good parking/room comfort
As a lake side restaurant it is very busy at weekends
Position on the lake and access to bike paths were ideal. The comfort and quality of fittings in the room were first class.
No complaints at all
The walls were very thin
Great staff. Very helpful. Lovely view from Balcony - well worth the extra. Great food. Fantastic cycle (28 km) round the lake
