Delightfully grand hotel in a beautiful garden and lakeside setting. Staff are efficient and professional but a few could work on warmer friendliness. Pool area a little tired and could do with upgrading. A nice surprise was the lovely art works and ceramics on each floors corridor. Worth looking at.

Lovely hotel in a great position within ten minutes' walk of Stresa centre. The hotel is wonderfully ornate in style. Rooms are very comfortable and well equipped if a little on the small side. The staff are all very welcoming and the concierge provided excellent advice in terms of sightseeing in the area. The breakfast buffet offers a copious selection of choices while dinner in the hotel was also enjoyable (if on the pricey side). We also ate in Stresa at the following restaurants: Ristorante Piemontese and Ristorante Il Vicoletto. Would especially receomend the latter. Great food at very reasonable prices. One area for improvement at the hotel. The gym lacks equipment, fresh towels and water!

Comments in two areas: the fabric of the hotel and the service. The fabric of the hotel is wonderful. Even if you find it ornate and not to your taste, it is an outstanding example of belle epoque design and worth a visit just for that. The grounds are equally beautiful. The views over the lake from rooms on the front of the hotel are magnificent. The room we were given (a complimentary lake-view room, having booked a garden-room) was good: clean, spacious and comfortable, though with a slightly cramped bathroom. However, we could hear everything (and I mean everything) going on in the bathroom/toilet of the adjacent room. Never a good feature. Regarding service, we found the style confusing and inconsistent. Staff could be very friendly and pleasant, but also not fully switched-on to what we regard as 5* service standards. For example, due to a wedding, the restaurant had no tables available for us at 20:00. They agreed to "squeeze us in" and eventually seated us at about 21:10. They then allowed us to order a four-course meal, without mentioning that the restaurant effectively closed at 22:00. By the time we were half-way through only our second course, we were the only people left in the restaurant and the staff were tidying up around us. Not a good position to be in and certainly not the conditions in which to enjoy a €200 meal. Other aspects of the service in the restaurant were equally contradictory: staff generally pleasant, but just not up to the standards we expect in a 5* hotel, so we got dirty cutlery on our table, it was often difficult to get attention, no action was taken when an unsatisfactory dish was sent back to the kitchen, etc. A somewhat confusing experience for us. In summary, an interesting, more than an unequivocally enjoyable stay. We're glad we visited and many features of our experience will linger long and positively in the memory. But two nights was enough: any longer and we’d have gone nuts.
