Given I proposed to my girlfriend, now fiance as she thankfully said yes, on the balcony of one of their junior suite rooms I can only have great things to say about this hotel!
In all seriousness given the view from our room, and indeed many of the rooms which face the lake and towards Bellagio, many people would happily to sleep on the floor to wake up/ go to sleep with that vista. I am sure my photographs do not do it justice, however to have sunrise on the lake with the snow capped Alps as a backdrop to the lake reaching out and around us or to sit out at night with a glass of prosecco watching the lights of the little towns who line the lake and the ferries go backwards and forwards twinkling at night was magical and something everyone should experience
The other great thing were the owners. This is a family run hotel and again as we keep finding, this means excellent personal service and great pride in both their hotel and the area they are located. The help I received prior to booking was invaluable and appreciated and actually resulted in me booking a longer stay here than originally planed.
The shuttle service to Bellagio town was a much appreciated and good value service. Also a number of restaurants have an arrangement with this hotel and provide a free pick up/ drop of service. We tried two of these, The Bellagio Sports Club, and Salice Blu - both different, both excellent and this was nt a gimick to get naieve tourists in - anyone who has had the privalege of eating at Salice Blu can confirm, check all the reviews on here!
In all honesty the room features were 'secondary' in me choosing this hotel, it was all about the view however the suite was large and spacious. We did nt use the hotel bar however it was nice knowing it was there and did from reception buy water to take out with us a few times. The prices of all drinks was very fair and commensurate with those of the bars in Bellagio.
I would note the following, not as criticisms but as feedback/ help so the owners can continue giving the best they can - and we will return and stay here again whatever! Given we booked a suite the following would be excellent additions, or in some cases expected-
a mini fridge for personal use - prosecco on that balcony with that view and who I was with was a special moment in life that I got to enjoy for 4 days!
in room wifi internet should be free rather than charged
small outside heaters so could enjoy the balcony in the evening longer
the self serve buffet breakfast was limited and twice had run out of items - meat in particular, when we went for breakfast, which was a shame as what was served was good
