We recently spent a long weekend at this wonderful hotel & restaurant. The view from both our room & restaurant of Lake Maggiore were breathtaking. The property has been owned by the same family for nearly 200 years and the hotel is run by a descendant in a very much hands on approach. All of the staff are magnificent and... More

This is a nice simple little hotel with a great location right on the lake. Our corner room on the first floor was renovated and nice with beautiful vistas. The mattras was hard and rather uncomfortable and you clearly hear people in adject rooms and from floor above. Garden is beautiful. Breakfast was simple but adequate. We had dinner in... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location. It sits right on the lakeside. Breakfast outside is lovely with a view of the Borromean Islands The hotel is full of character and family run. Our room overlooked the garden and out to the lake. A short stroll takes you into Baveno where you can catch the ferry to Islola... More

This is a smaller older hotel filled with charm and decorated with eclectic antiques. Our room looked out over a pleasant yard with gazebo and patio furniture on the shore of the lake towards the Borromean Islands. The view surpassed the large lake front hotels in Stresa and the hotel was the fraction of cost of those Victorian hotels. La... More

We spent 4 nights at La Ripa with our children aged 2 and 5. The location, right on the lake and a couple of minutes walk to the centre of Baveno, is perfect. Food in the restaurant was very good. Staff were very helpful and looked after our children very well.

We have been coming her for years and the hotel is absolutely fantastic if you like real character in stead of a 'run off the mill' hotel. Breakfast and diner are served in the garden which offers stupendous views of the Lake Maggiore with its's beautiful Borromeo Islands. Rooms have been redone recently and the hotel now offers en suite... More

The hotel has only about 10 rooms. We stayed in a one with a lake view. The room was renovated, clean and nicely decorated. I believe no room is the same but all look very charming. The service was excellent if not perfect. I definitely recommend it!

We stayed at Hotel La Ripa on Lake Maggiore in October 2010, and it couldn't have been lovelier. Our freshly decorated room had tall windows with sheer white curtains looking out at the gardens and the lake, with balconies big enough for a chair or two. In addition to a traditional European breakfast, dinner is also served in the antiques-filled... More
