    Very opulent decor.Nice room and bathroom,rather small for the price.Very nice staff in bar and restaurant. The food was fine and the set menue good value for money.

    For a luxury hotel the bathroom ameneties were lovely,but there was very little of it and nothing was replaced during our stay.

    Very beatiful really Grand Hotel! Helpful and professional staff, good location. 5 minutes walk to Stresa and boats going to Borromees Islands.

  • Older travelers

    This is a beautiful hotel. The public spaces are exceptionally pretty and our room was gorgeous. We were happily upgraded to a lovely junior suite overlooking the lake. Our stay was very comfortable. When the volcanic ash travel chaos delayed our departure, the hotel staff were not only very helpful in assisting us to make new travel arrangements, but also they continued the upgrade with no extra charge.

    Grandeur!!!excellent friendly outstanding service etc,,, beautiful rooms, took upgrade to lake view, delicious breakfast

    Very elegant historical palace, ideally located by the lake, surrounded by beautiful gardens and at walking distance from Stresa helpful and friendly staff, excellent service and generous breakfast

    We had to queue to be seated for breakfast during the weekend

  • Older travelers

    Old fashioned, unhelpful, not 5star service. Terrible breakfast, room tiny, bathroom old style, poor tableware in dining room etc etc would advise not visiting.

    24 meters long swimming pool, flowers and trees, Nice park, situated front of lake, nice breakfast, 8 min walk from stresa. Welcoming hotel.

    Not so comfortable beds, problem in the hotel bathrooms for 4 days (hot water), rooms are not so quiet: you can hear people talking or calling in the room next door.. I was expecting the hotel to make a discount after 4 days with a non working bathroom but they didn't do anything (and I stayed 10 nights..)

    The location was outstanding. The pool and the staff at the pool were great. The breakfast was very good.

    The consierge was not as helpful as I hoped.

    Location, ambience of hotel, suite on lakeside

    Most staff could not care less (Pool staff excluded) One can expect this sort of place to be expensive but service should go with it - it didn'T.. One morning we had to ask 3 times just to get a coffee. To cap it all the hotels bank refused my debit card pos and they were just plain unhelpful.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    except for concierge, staff excellent at all levels--pricey but worth it---beautiful facility

    don't say you have a/c and not provide it---room was a bit uncomfortable at times without letting bugs in--internet a bit deceptive as you are not right on the lake as a road bisects between

  • Group of friends

    It is an excellent hotel with beautiful public spaces and excellent services!

  • Older travelers

    Bar area with piano playing was nice. The decor was traditional and pleasing. No charge for car parking.

    There was an air of just doing enough about the place. We were ahead of the start of the season and for a five star hotel it wasn't good enough. The food was basic certainly not a la carte. At breakfast cold milk was brought with the coffee and no offer was made to provide anything other than what was on the buffet. The rooms should always be checked and signed off at the start of the season and certainly before guests are shown to them. Our first suite had bird droppings all over the balcony and as there was noise from the adjacent suites they offered us a better suite in the main building which was far nicer. The only problem with this one was that the bath tap would not work and so the bath had to be filled from the shower. This was reported but was not rectified whilst we were there. Also when I asked why the air conditioning was not working I was told that it would not be switched on until May. The service in the bar had a distracted air about it, I think they will struggle when the season starts. The hotel infrasructure is generally very good but the investment is being let down by poorly motivated staff.

    Beautiful interior in the lobby, stunning views, nice garden and surroundings

    Room is quite ordinary, not a 5*L, jacuzzi didn't work. Standard breakfast same everyday, quite poor

    Super location, lovely feel and great public spaces. An excellent breakfast as well and everything was made easy( parking, luggage, checkin and ouT)

    I had a very small room( but in fairness booked a very good value last minute special in a garden facing room)

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Have stayed in many other Stresa Hotels ,this is the best by far..at a price

    The rooms do not have tea & coffee
