“Beautiful Hotel in the mountains”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2013

I stayed here for 4 days. The food is excellent. Very quiet hotel in the mountains. If your looking for a small quaint hotel this is it.
It is very close to Lake Maggiore and to the city of Arrona which is wonderful to walk arround

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the lake.

This place is very charming, staff are very friendly and nice, rooms were very clean and comfortable except for the fact that the room was quite stuffy and hot at night and the ac's are supposedly going to be switched on as of next week so there was nothing they could do about it, we couldn't keep the window open at night as there was a church bell that rang every hour and i was worried it would wake up the kids, you could still hear it with the window closed but it wasn't that bad i think the hot room was more uncomfortable. The wifi in our room was not working for some reason but the receptionist really tried to check it out and even sent us a modem in our room however it still wouldn't work! The location of the hotel is great for exploring the area, i think despite the few glitches we would definitely like to come back.

Hotel remodeled in 2010 but keep much of its charm. Next to a castle and Lake Maggiore. Cadtle has a gorgeous wine bar and 8 rooms in summer and is used for weddings, etc. The staff is top notch and very helpful. Great location for a stay on your way home via Malpensa or a wedding or party.

What a wonderful place place to stay for exploring the area. Very elegant and comfortable with impeccable service. A comprehensive breakfast sets you up for the day and the meal we ate from the new menu was delicious. Friendly and courteous staff make sure your stay is a delight.

We look forward to returning soon!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2013

I have just spent three days in this beautiful hotel. It must be unique amongst five star hotels in as much as it is as if one is staying in a family Palazzo, still lived in and owned by a distinguished Italian family - which indeed is the case. The rooms have all been individually designed by Cassiano dal Pozzo and furnished with pictures and objects by his wife, Nicki, carefully chosen from the family collection. But all is done to the highest of contemporary standards. The restaurant serves superb food and as one says "le patron mange chez lui". The staff were always smiling and very friendly - after two days having taken breakfast at the same table I found it had a "riservato" notice on it, so I sat elsewhere - the head waiter immediately said "but Signore I have kept your table for you". I thoroughly recommend this hotel for the highest of standards.

This hotel was exceptional, and when they finish building the spa centre alongside I am sure it will be 5 star, meanwhile the service is well up to 5 star standard. We stayed for 3 nights. The accommodation is in the (modern but beautiful) Pallacio. Rooms and public areas are spotlessly clean, elegantly furnished and comfortable. Our bedroom was better that the 5 star hotel we had been in the previous few nights, and that was good. The restaurant had excellent food with local dishes, service good here too. Only complaint would be that on arrival we found the restaurant was already fully booked that evening, but reception made us a booking at a very good restaurant within walking distance. There was an excellent breakfast buffet which could be eaten indoors or on the internal courtyard. You can visit and have a guided tour of the old Castillo free of charge, also free access to the gardens for walking. Good wifi access throughout the building and terraces. We will definitely choose to go back there. Read less

We spent 3 nights in the old castello at this hotel. We then changed rooms to the palazzo in the main hotel where they were much more modern. I would advise against staying in the castello rooms but all the hotel rooms are quite small with restricted storage and wardrobe space. The staff are outstanding and the location - in good weather - is excellent but difficult to find and very difficult to exit onto the main road. The hotel promises significant extensions "soon coming" but there is little sign of the promised development. Web felt that the hotel over-promised and under-delivered

Room Tip: Stay in the palazzo and NOT the castello which smells dusty and is remote from the dining and lounge...

Dear Guests,

thank you very much for your review and informations.

As you mentinoned, our hotel complex is composed of the Castello, first built in the year 1.000 where the fifth Roman Legion used to be placed, and the Palazzo recently rebuilt to be a 5 star hotel that opened in 2010. Although they are both national monuments they are very different and indipendenlty chracteristic.

We are moving on with the extentions and the old stables will be ready in spring 2014 with more rooms. Also the amenities are moving forward and we will be posting them on our website as soon as they are ready and running.

We really hope to have you here again so that you can try first hand our new features.

Thank you
