We chose this hotel based on the extremely positive reviews of other travelers. For whatever reason, for one of the first time ever, our take was quite a bit different than it seems others.
I think our biggest problem is that we really wanted more than a 3 star in a small Italian resort town was able to provide. We had planned for 3 nights a the hotel but ended up staying only 1 night. We had reserved a suite for my wife and I and our 3 year old daughter. Our suite was much simpler than we had hoped ... clean (although the heavy scent of amonia always bothers me). The first room had a sofa and a desk (no TV) and then there was a short hallway with a bath of it and the bedroom. The bath was as small as you could imagine with toilet, sink, shower, and bidet. The bedroom was fine and the bed was comfortable. We did have a nice balcony overlooking a pretty pool and of course the lake.
The owners did provide good service and both the snack bar and the breakfast the next morning were tasty.
However, for over $220 Euros per night, we wanted more and decided to cancel the final 2 days to go into Milano before returning to the States. The owners did not waive a cancellation fee for us but we didn't not push too hard.
One final thing - avoid the Rana trattoria that the owners may recommend. Had a very unsatisfying meal at it.
So in short, if you plan to stay at the hotel, be prepared for a great view but a simple hotel. We've traveled in Europe quite a bit and would rate it as a low 3 star.
