This hotel is situated slightly north of the center, an easy and picturesque walk. The staff were extremely nice and helpful. The view from our room was quite stunning, overlooking the lake and island. We were there in October so the pool was closed. Unfortunately the AC was also shut down for the season, even though it was still quite hot. We had to sleep with the window open and the neighborhood dogs all barked for a long time during the night so we did not get a good night sleep. Overall would recommend, must be awesome in the summer when the pool is open!

Highly recommend staying here! The view is absolutely amazing. There is an amazing terrace for breakfast lunch and dinner. Breakfast is a buffet with plenty for all! We had dinner one night, the food was also very good! The service in the hotel is also amazing! Staff are polite, friendly, and always smiling! The pool is clean too, sunbeds all around, and even a little bar at the pool to enjoy a beer, proseco, cocktail or just an ice cream! There is a separate paddling pool for kids too. We had a very comfy and super clean room with a pool and lake view. Air con worked perfectly well. The hotel is super clean wherever you go! The walk down the center is lovely, cobble roads, pedestrian only. And a lovely walk around the lake! There are couple “beaches” on the lake but otherwise you can easily take your beach bag and jump off any of the pontoons !

Nice hotel, Rooma are clean, nice location. Breakfast should be much better. Nothing fresh items, fruitsallad is from the can. No tomatoes etc. Pool area could have been cleaner but poolboy practically did not do anything else but smoking.

Our well-equipped room had a wonderful view from a small but adequate balcony. The meal service on the terrace was worthy of a five star establishment and the food itself was delicious, inventive and carefully portioned. The drinks were a bit pricey but the choice was comprehensive. We didn't use the pool due to bad weather, but it appeared well cared for. The staff were unfailingly polite, helpful and very knowledgeable. All in all a very pleasant peaceful break from city life.

Nice room (with little too hard bed for our taste), very nice view from the balcony facing the lake. Helpful staff (and a very cute hotel dog!) Pool was big enough, with basic pool service (Beer, drinks, ice cream and pool towels). Great location just minutes from the town, quite steep hills so you get a free workout going up and down. If you visit by car make sure to take a drive around the lake, very nice!

A family of 5 we stayed here for 5 nights. There is a lovely swimming pool with plenty of sunbeds/sunchairs and a small pool bar for drinks and ice cream. The breakfast was plentiful and tasty with great coffee and juices - overseen by attentive waiters. The hotel is well located just above the town (only a few minutes walk) with some stunning views over the island and the lake. The rooms are traditional and comfortable. The hotel is run by a family and even their calm and gentle dog potters around reception. This is a well run typically Italian hotel in a great location with such pretty views. Recommended.

Views to the island and the lake fantastic, location perfect right above the little town. September 30 we were told A/C not available because it is “too cold at night”...lucky for us the room stayed at 25 degrees centigrade (77 Fahrenheit) during the day and we were comfortable but in fairness I book hotels with air conditioning and they say they have it here but they don't. Lighting in rooms old school and dim. Plenty of parking and good wi-fi. A solid 3 star hotel, probably would stay again. Staff fine.
