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.

Lighting in bedroom is not good for reading. It is set only inches above pillows.
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!

There was nothing to dislike.
Lovely setting, lovely staff, lovely room and great ristorante.

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
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

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).

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.
The hotel is far nicer than the picture would make you think. Staff very friendly and the food was excellent.
