This was our 3rd stop on a 4 city your of Italy with family. The hotel met our needs perfectly. Low price and reasonable accommodations. The rooms are decent size for European standards with small balconies to enjoy the lake view. Breakfast was good for the price and all the coffee was freshly made. There is plenty of outside common... More

Good carpark just across the road from the hotel and a little park as well right on the lake. The hotel recommended nice places for diner. We had a lake view room in the Villa which was... More

We stayed at Villa Ruscello for 2 night in October 2013 and over all it was very good, first impressions were not great as we didn't realize there was a road between the car park and the hotel, also a lot of steps leading to the hotel ( I have to say we had been driving quiet a lot so... More

If you scored this hotel on location alone it would be a five. It sits right up against Lake Maggiore with its own mini beach and sun lounging area. The brothers who own the property (the business was started by their grandfather) are delightful. It is located half way between Baveno and Stressa with the most stunning views of the... More

We stayed a night here on our way from Lausanne to Milan airport, not realising it was such a wonderful location. Right on Lake Maggiore and in a lovely old family home we were made very welcome by the hosts who spoke good English which was great for us. They directed us to a lovely restaurant for dinner where they... More

The Location is unique , the hotel is like a Castle, the rooms are good average, the parking is the place where you can take the better pictures of the lago Maggiore....Remember tis Tip, The waterfall from the mountains cross the hotel and the noise was for us ......a plus Price is perfect, breakfast was excellent.

The 2 double rooms we occupied had both a balcony overlooking the hotel garden and Lago Maggiore with its "Borromeo Islands" of Isla Bella and Isla Madre. The ferry to these islands is just 1 km from the hotel which exists of 2 parts - the old, original house of the parents of the 2 owners (2 brothers) and a... More

Little and charming family-run hotel, facing the Borromee Isles, the rooms have direct view from the balcony. The hotel has nice gardens, one around the villa and the other giving private access to the lake. The room is simple, but comfortable and with renovated bathroom. The owners are very courteous and helpful concerning information about events and attractions throughout the... More

I have stayed here with a friend for 1 night. Check-in Very easy going. The owners are really nice. We got a room with balcony and sea view, this was the best feature of the hotel. The rooms are basic Italian rooms, shower is a bit small, small TV, oversoft beds, woollen blanket, no fridge. I recommend this hotel for... More
