The 5 Best Luxury Hotels
in Lakes District
At Butterfield & Robinson, our hotels aren’t prosaic—they’re pure poetry.
From castles and riads to ryokans and monasteries, we source lodgings that aren’t just places to crash, but one-of-a-kind spots as intimate, authentic and sublime as the rest of your journey—and packed with personal touches from our hotelier friends.
Below we’ve rounded up a few of the best luxury hotels in Lakes District, where you can do so much more than simply rest your head.
But be warned: there may be tears when it’s time to say goodbye!
Villa Serbelloni, one of the oldest hotels in the Lake Como area, was one of the most famous stops along the 19thC tour of the lakes.
Not much has changed today. This 5-star hotel is decorated in a neo-classical style and offers guests the pleasure of a relaxing poolside, spa treatments or a motorboat ride from the private dock to the historic gardens along the lake.
Overlooking the tranquil Lago Maggiore and the Isola Bella and Isola Madre with the splendor of a late 19thC resort, it is easy to see why this enchanting five-star Art Nouveau style villa has welcomed famous guests for 150 years.
In each of the hotel’s 160 guest rooms, meticulous restoration has resulted in a pleasing combination of old-world charm and modern luxury.
