“Luxury suite, amazing view...”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We loved our stay here in this hotel. A quite manageable three hour drive from Venice, this hotel is so welcoming and luxurious. Our four room suite was amazing, on the top floor with an amazing balcony overlooking lake Maggiore. The bath was incredible, with room for two and nice big surfaces for holding glasses of chilled white wine. We spent many hours just reading, sleeping and talking in the suite, it was that comfortable. The walk into Baveno is around ten minutes, though it is through a picturesque park so no real problem. There is a gorgeous outdoor swimming area, a lakeside beach, boat jetty and outdoor bar- quite honestly, you wouldn't have to leave the hotel unless you really wanted to. However, drinks at the bar were expensive. Around eleven euros per drink, so between 20-25 euros per round. We ate at the restaurant once- it was nice, but nothing to Amelie's, where we went the next evening. A hotel we would return to, though I hope by then they will have rethought their pre-pay wifi tariff. I hate being charged for wifi- this isn't 2005 and considering the cost of a room here, it should be included.

Room Tip: Lakeside suites are amazing with wonderful views.

My husband and I recently stayed here while on a Trafalgar tour. Absolutely beautiful views over the lake from our room. The rooms are very stylishly furnished and comfortable. Food was lovely and the staff very friendly and efficient. Would love to go back and spend more time at Lake Maggiore and in the lovely hotel.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room with views of the lake, otherwise you could looking at the road.

We stayed 2 nights at the splendid back in september 2013.

We had booked a lakeside junior suite and were upgraded to a lakeside suite upon arrival which is always a great way to start a week end !

The suite was sensational, comfy and classy with a scenic view on the lake and mountains. Bed was so nice we struggled to get out of it in the morning to go and visit the area (which would have been a real shame !) We enjoyed drinks on the balcony of the suit and at the bar terrace as well each evening. Service was what you'd expect from a hotel of that standard albeit sometime a bit slow but acceptable since there was a big reception over that week end and staff was busy.

Baveno, stresa, the islands and the area are a fantastic place to visit, go out and enjoy the restaurants and streets on warm end of summer nights, and the hotel really played its role in making that week end perfect for us.

I was there last week for a business event for 3 nights.
The room I got wasn’t facing the lake but still the mountains view was great.
The rooms are not very big but well equipped and very nicely decorated.
The bathroom is beautifully lighted and very clean and comfortable.
As for the lobby, the bar and especially the outdoor facing the lake with a small private beach…it’s splendid.
The service was top class and quick.
With a combination of good weather and off season it’s a perfect place the get some tranquility.
It’s highly recommended in overall.

Room Tip: lake view....

Lucky for us that the original hotel we were booked in during our tour made our tour director change our hotel to HOTEL SPLENDID. What a wonderful and delightful surprise to be able to stay in this 5 star hotel. It was so grand, a hotel fit for an out of this world wedding. The entrance, the dinning area, the bar area, the grounds that went on for miles and or course, the balcony which made it possible to sit and enjoy the beautiful mountains and lake, could not ask for a better venue. The dinner was outstanding from appetizer to dessert. Breakfast was the usual Italian breakfast with sweets, meats and coffee. The staff was so courteous and helpful. A walk into town square took about 10 minutes, grab a bench and sit and enjoy the lake and mountains. Very peaceful. We were there on a Sunday so it was quite. My husband can't wait to return.
