We were part of the Riviera Travel group at the beginning of August and really enjoyed sharing our albeit busy week there with very nice fellow travellers. There were cultural and interesting excursions every day and our tour manager (Marina) was very knowledgable.
The hotel has lovely grounds and swimming pool area, its location is central but at the same time quiet and the hotel staff are excellent. We were pleased we paid the extra for a lake view - breath-taking. The food was very good with lots of local produce (their local cheeses are really excellent), well-presented and buffet style.
Our room was nice and spacious, the air-conditioning functioned and was easy to operate. Bed linens and towels were changed every day. Some might find the linen hand towels somewhat unusual but this is typical/traditional Italian and we were pleased that the hotel has managed to keep this, and other cultural characteristics, which contribute to its charm instead of succuming to the pressures of modern-day, money-grabbing commercialism.
We were fortunate (?!) enough to witness a rare thunder and lightning storm in the early hours. The mix of the lightning flashes, thunderclaps and tranquility against the backdrop of the Alps was quite spectacular.
We felt the only drawback to the hotel is the absence of a ramp for the less able-bodied amongst us. Although there are only a few steps to negotiate at the entrance of the hotel, there really should be a ramp - the handrail doesn't suffice. If the hotel prefers not to install a permanent ramp, perhaps it might consider providing a 'Portable' ramp?
