The property is in an excellent location with lots of character. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Our only criticism is that we specifically booked the annex rooms six months in advance but on arrival we were told these we unavailable. We were given 'superior' rooms but we were disappointed as they were not what we had booked. Our concerns were met with you have better rooms but this was not the case.

Luigi the manager was wonderful and really made us feel welcome and went out of his way to help us . The location of the hotel on the lake and the restaurant and cafe options and the wharf out the front to go to bellagio or other towns was wonderful. This was magical .
