Location simply cannot be beat! Hotel beautifully located on shorefront Lake Maggiore, and within short walk Laveno town center and waterfront. Stayed here for a weekend amidst business trip. Had a fantastic break, definitely made the right choice place to stay. Junior suite is spacious room with balcony above the lake. Owners helpful and friendly to someone who is not good at italian language. The dinners are excellent! Great chef, great fresh local fare and seafood. Had an all-round wonderful and peaceful weekend. Not something I did not like: but my response to other reviewers that indicated the rooms are small. Standard rooms do look small (simple standard european basic rooms). However, the Junior Suites are very spacious, comfortable, most have balconies, and, they only cost a few more euro... Do youself a favor, book ahead, and get a junior suite.
We didn't like anything, especially the cockroach in our bedroom. The decor was dirty and out dated, the balcony was falling to bits, when I stepped out of the shower or used the toilet anybody on the lake could have looked into the bathroom as there wasn't a curtain or blind at the window! The man who served breakfast was downright rude and ignorant!
the view was amazing and very close to the town of Laveno, the room was pleasant and clean.
Upgraded to a junior suire Poor breakfasts and extremely slow service at dinner.Inconvenient parking.
Apart from slight difficulties with the Internet our stay was really enjoyable. I will remember the sound of waves and beautiful veiw from the window. All lake destinations and attractions are easilly accessable, espetially if you travel with a car. Friendly staff, atmospheric restaurant Some difficulties with the Internet link. After the refurbishment of the upper terrace it's going to look nicer, now it spoils the first impression.
The garden is really nice. Breakfast is delicious, many food options to choose. Location is not so great. Not a lot of things to do, besides walking trough the gardens. If your plan is to know new towns, this is probably not the best option. Locarno is 45 minutes distance.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
beatiful garden and restauarant both inside and outside. How the hotell is placed just along the water front a bit unwilling service in the bar and in the garden. They could have sold more to us, like drinks
outstanding location near the lake, beautiful garden with jacuzzi alongside the lake
location - on the lakeside, views were spectacular. restaurant - food quality could be much better,

Good location We looked for a hotel max 20km from Locarno, and this turned out to be 40km.
Location overlooking Lake Maggiore
The room was amazing. Breakfast was great and staff very welcoming.
The room was perfect. It was a penthouse room with a private terrace. I suspect some of the other rooms might not be so nice since the renovation process seems to be taking a long time. Althought he room had been renovated, the bathroom could have been done better. The plumbing clearly was not on the agenda so the shower was pretty poor. Nevertheless, it all worked and was clean. Some of the staff were not as polite or friendly as you might expect from this quality of hotel. I suspect the training is at fault here - they should know the difference between professional and perfunctory.
Location was nice right next to lake Maggiore. Prices were reasonable and staff helpful. There is a road going next to beach which you need to cross if you want to get to the beach or cafe. Bed was just a cheap sofa, which would have been fine if it hasn't been so short. I'm 183cm and had to hang my feet long over the bed and still my pillow kept dropping to floor few times a night.
Actually it was a really bad choice. No value for this money! Since when is a double bad a couch? For welcome I got a piece of paper in their mailbox, where was my key .....
Great beach for swimming and relaxing. Brilliant view of the lake. Clean and tidy rooms. Kitchen facitilite were good however I would recommend taking dis liquid and soap for the bathroom as these were not supplied. The apartment was advertised as a two bedroom apartment however on arrival it was actually one bedroom with a pull down sofa and a singe bed that folded down, so even though the apartment was advertised to hold 5-6 people it wasquite tight with 5.
A very nice place. The owner was extremely nice, smiling and doing everything to make our stay comfortable. The grass field at the lake was beautifully kept and the small beach great for children 4 years and up. If you have smaller children I wouldn´t recommend the place, since they could fall of the grass field and into the lake. Spectacular views from the appartments that are nice and well kept. Great little beachbar with sallads, pizza, drinks, icecream etc. We rented a motorboat for some hours and had a fantastic ride on the lake. Great place - really! The street separating the hotel from the beach is quite busy even during the night, which creates a lot of noise, making it hard to sleep. This is really the only bad thing to say, but also the archielles heal of the hotel.
Perfect location!!! Just cross the road - and you are on the beach. The beach itself is small and cozy, with grass, you get sunbeds and an umbrella. The lake is amazing. Nice villages very near, 5-10 minutes with the car. We were prepared, that the furniture is quite basic and that we have a sofa instead of a bed. But we were not prepared to mold, bad smell from the bathroom and the refrigerator, stains on the sheets... The sofa is too short if you are more than 180 CM. The mattress is very thin, we got back ache from it. Breakfast is more than basic, you have to wait to the waiters for a long time, the tablecloth was dirty.
Lots to see and close to quaint villages along the lake. Beautiful setting with spectacular views. Friendly staff and fantastic value for money.
Very nice and helpful staff. A room with terrace, which is fully face the beautiful lake. And you can enjoy the breakfast in the restaurant with fantastic view. It's a little hard to move the luggage into the room in floor 2.
Super view of Lago Maggiore from the room. Excellent helpful staff fluent in various languages. Perfect and clean rooms. Super breakfast on terrasse overlooking the lake. Absolutely recommendable!!!!
Ideally located, directly at the lake, very pretty and charming. The room may not be perfect (furniture) but perfectly adequat and certainly not worse than most other 2-star hotels in the mediteranean. Rooms 2-5 are on the side of the building, but the sea is easily visible by turning your head, Room 6 is the one with the full view. All rooms we saw had a cute little balcony. The breakfast is absolutely fine, again, by mediteranean standards. Hot drink, juice, bread, jam, ham & cheese, joghurt. Staff is very friendly. Dinner would have been 15 Euros per person, but we had other plans. Considering the excellent location I think the hotel offers a pretty good deal. Easy parking. Everything was fine.
Loved our balcony view of the lake and the Alps beyond. A great place to watch the sunset. Excellent inexpensive gourmet dinner both nights. Wonderful breakfast including nice proscuitto & croissants. Staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful & accomodating.
This lovely little lakeside hotel is chef owned with a well appointed restaurant, which offers great resident meal deals. The staff could not be more helpful, and willingly attend to every need in a friendly and informal way, The lake view room was exactly that, with a balcony over the small harbour.
