We stayed for a week in May and had a wonderful time. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff from maids to reception and restaurant. The food was the best I've ever had in all the countries I have visited. The rooms are on the small side but all are on suite. The view overlooking the piazza was great. The hotel is in the centre of town with buses going to Venice every half an hour. We will definitely be returning.

Stayed here for the weekend, visiting our favourite lake and area. Hotel is old but this is part of its charm and character, set in a perfect location with views across the lake to the islands. About a ten minute walk into Baveno where you can eat and drink well, chose carefully ! Stresa in the other direction also a great place to visit, five minutes by car, safer than walking with lots of options too.
Very welcoming staff and will do anything to help make your stay perfect.
Definitely worth a stopover if you have the chance.

the bones of the place are good. the service was really nice. But there are symptoms of the owners neglect everywhere. It was once a grand hotel and has so much potential, but as the price reflects, is rather average in many ways. Please do something about the pool area! Its starting to look like a haunted mansion.

Room Tip: think about top floor

Gentile Mrs Thorton. Thank you for your review and for considering us neglecting people. How can somebody who spends few hours in a place, choosing the cheapest possible rooms available in the internet and obtening instead a fantastic accomodations, in a unique settings overlooking the lake with dedicated service and lots of attention be so miserable against other people work , is something that i will never understand. Anyway our efforts and investment on the building are continuose so don't panic ! Concerning the pool it was closed during your stay ! Thanks God we had all summer fantastic customers who appreciated our work and when they did not they ve express their concerned with lots of elegance and respect, understanding our efforts .We thank them all. Good wishes,
Paolo D'Amico

I have just had a lovely, relaxing break with my daughter. The weather was up and down but we expected that at this time of the year. The staff were very helpful especially the young man on the desk who always had time to give us directions and a smile! Breakfast was simple but plenty for us.
Just sorry we could not have stayed longer, but we will be back!!

Before booking this hotel, we were a little concerned with the mixed reviews, particularly some that mentioned its tired nature. To some extent, this was true, but we found that this only added to the old-fashioned charm of the place, and in no way did this detract from the enjoyment of our stay here, indeed it enhanced it.

Situated in a magnificent position overlooking Lake Maggiore, this family-run hotel is a short walk from the centre of Baveno, and a lake-facing room is a must. The gardens and pool are well-maintained, and Paulo and all the staff could not do enough to please, ensuring that we had a great holiday break.

Sleep quality was very good with air-conditioning providing a very comfortable night’s rest. The food in the restaurant was excellent, complemented by very good service from Roberto and his team.

We would certainly like to return one day, and readily recommend this hotel to others.

Room Tip: A lake-facing room is a must.
