Once you arrive you can sit back a breathe an air of relief. Set in beautiful grounds, lovely rooms that take you back to a time when exclusivity and being treated as if you were special were reserved for the elite. You feel special from the minute you arrive and are treated as such. The setting is superb, a 7...

We booked a junior suite, with the lake view and the extra cost was well worth the money. The service was excellent from the moment we arrived. The front desk was very helpful in making reservations for us and giving us all the information as to where to go for certain activities. The room was large, with a king sized...

A lovely hotel for those looking to enjoy a classical Italian lakeside break. Not for the traveller i search of the ultimate luxury. Staff and service was impeccable. Breakast is excellent. Location is fantastic for exploring the lake and the town.

This is a truly beautiful hotel reminiscent of the Grand Tour era. The decor is opulent, the gardens extensive with great sports facilities (including a cutting edge gym). But... when we arrived there was no-one immediately around to take the cases from the car -although I could see staff standing around. And no-one offered to take our cases to the...

Had a great stay in this Hotel, we loved the style, very well appointed, excellent service and staff who were always willing to help. Buffet breakfast was excellent with wide choice of high quality food. Nice grounds and ample parking. Made use of the gym and both indoor and outdoor pool. Would recommend a lake view.
