Stayed three nights in June part of a large wedding group. Stayed in a room in the first floor with a big balcony overlooking the beautiful lake view. Service impeccable and best of all the room rate included breakfast and Wi-Fi, which is rare in luxury hotels these days.
The concierge service was excellent although initially I found the taxi fare expensive. The concierge announced the price of 50€ to go to Verbania, 10km away. Thinking this may an overcharge by hotel; on return trip I asked the restaurant and was quoted the same price. It is just price during the high season.
The decoration of each floor is different and worth visiting. Some of the pieces are amusingly garish and ugly.
Otherwise I agree with all the 5 star reviews on this site.
