The staff were very helpful with making calls when we were dealing with a member of our party who became ill. The view was not great; we were supposed to have a lake-view room and we had more of a side-view with a small glimpse of the lake. We booked through Luxury Link and got a few extras, including a massage for each member of our party. They allowed us to convert that into a massage + facial for me, as my husband was not interested (silly). Also included was a dinner for two. We were surprised to find that they charged us for sodas at an exorbitant cost, even though we only ordered one meal (as my husband was ill and only wanted soda). We ended up complaining to Luxury Link about it and received a Luxury Link credit for the amount of the sodas. The hotel was unapologetic. It was a nice location, however.

Our stay provided us with the largest room during our time in Italy along with the most magnificent view of Lake Maggiore. The spaciousness of the hotel and what it offers makes it a standout and the winding road to the Hotel was well worth it.

Taking in the beautiful surrounds and grandness of the hotel make for a most relaxing stay.

Only comment is more a humorous observation of the plumbing in the room, very tight!

Room Tip: Must over look the lake.

Historic hotel with super service and wonderfull location. You have to stop there? You will rest and wish you could stay there for ever.
The leader of the hotel will give you a felling of beeing at home.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view over the see

I stayed here for two nights in September and found it to be great as always, I've stayed here on previous trips. The rooms are large, even by North American standards, and they have adequate parking. Location is just about perfect, near the action but not to close and they have water access if you would like to swim. The restaurant was very good and the patio bar is a great way to spend the evening watching the sun set.

This hotel, built in 1870, in true "Belle Époque" style is truly majestic. Entering, you find yourself in an enormous atrium with balconies on each of the four floors surrounding. Thus, every room looks outwards. The rooms at the front give onto the road which, whilst not too busy, will cause you to want to keep the windows closed at night to keep out the noise. We paid for, and were given, a "superior partial lake view" room. There was nothing superior about this room, it was tiny, with just about enough room to walk around the bed, one chair and a desk. We checked with the staff and they confirmed this was what we had ordered. Be warned, pay a little more, "superior" is not enough. We did have a good view of the lake though and the bathroom although also small, was good. As we were not able to sit and relax in our room, we used the public lounges which are very nice. There is a splendid terrace overlooking the garden and lake at the rear, where the very attentive staff will serve refreshments. Breakfast, Continental style was served in a very light and airy room also with a view over the lake and garden, managed by the excellent Roberto. Cooked extras available at extra cost, good service. We dined one evening in the restaurant and whilst everything was done in great style, the food was disappointing. My pasta dish was stodgy and my fish overcooked and dry. Perhaps the kitchen was under stress as there was a large wedding party in one of the function rooms. Never mind, a ten minute walk into Pallanza provides you with plenty of alternative places to eat. The front desk staff were efficient and helpful. Wi-fi was available, free of charge, at plentiful hot-spots all over the hotel, good. Overall, apart from the size of our room, we had a good holiday, and would go again (in a different room). PS. Don't miss going to the amazing gardens at Villa Taranto about 1k down the road.
