what happened to their elegance?
We love this hotel. This is the 4th year in a row we've stayed there. The food is excellent. The concierge us excellent the barmen in the lobby are very nice. But, the bar is only open from 6-10:30. Major problem for us as we like our drink before we dress for dinner. We went to another hotel for a drink. Not good. For some Eason the clientele is becoming more ...well, not very elegant it is a shame. We spoke to the manager and he as extremely nice. Because of him we might return.

Longer next time
This beautifully situated hotel on the shore of Lake Maggiore fully lives up to its billing as a 5 star hotel of the highest standard. We booked for one night only en route from the rain drenched Berner Oberland to Lake Garda. We would looking for a little luxury and comfort on our way and were delighted with almost everything this truly grand hotel had to offer. If we come again, it will be for longer. The 150-year-old building has been renovated with tender loving care over the decades and retains all its Victorian panache while adapting to the demands of the 21st century. Our suite included a large balcony and a delightful view over the impressively landscaped gardens. Everything was ideal with the sole exception of the rollaway bed which our teenage daughter considered less than comfortable. We made good use of the pool area in the garden which was meticulously maintained and offered big fluffy beach towels as well as more than enough sun loungers and shades all expertly managed by the pool attendant who was adept at achieving the desired balance between sun and shade. Reception was polite, welcoming, informative and efficient and breakfast offered a wide range of choice in the restaurant overlooking the lake. Not quite US resort level of choice but at the top end for Europe. Parking was free and easy. And yes, the wifi worked well and without hassle.
