The Grand Hotel Tremezzo Palace is kind of like an upmarket English sea-side hotel - huge, sweeping public areas, lots of crystal chandeliers, high, high ceilings and a certain sense of charm and elegance which is hard to manufacture. They're tried hard to funk it up: brightly coloured furniture makes a statement from the lobby in resplendent greens, oranges and purples; the suite we had had a Loewe media system (more in a minute on that) and there's a sense of an old lady trying to embrace modernity which is not without success.
Criticisms? It's very expensive. The media system is so high end and complex is needed a technician in our room each of the three nights we were there (and on the third, even he couldn't work it). He told us he had taken a one-month course to learn how to operate it. But that's about it.
The Grand Hotel Tremezzo Palace is not slick and it's not perfect. But we enjoyed every minute of it, absorbed its unrivalled charm, revelled in its efforts and applauded its staff for being wonderfully engaging, helpful and kind. What more could you want?More
