We stayed over the long Easter weekend. The internal decoration of the hotel is on a par with a museum. We stayed on the 2nd floor in a mini suite. This floor was decorated in Venetian Chinoiserie style. The view from our balcony was of the lake and Isola Madre/Bella, which was excellent.
Breakfast was fit for a king. You could cut your own prosciutto crudo and smoked salmon. A first for us.
As others have said the bed was very firm. However, this did not stop us getting a good night's sleep. The internet access was overpriced at 9 euros per day.
