A thoroughly enjoyable stay in a very romantic, classical old school European hotel. Having visited Italy and Switzerland a few times, I had always wanted to stay on a hotel by an alpine lake and this one is in the lake or at least on an island; which is easily reached from shore by the numerous ferry boats plying their...

Our experience was extremely negative in terms of value (lacking) for money. The price of the room was only slightly lower than that of some fantastic hotels in Stresa. However, the mattresses were old and lumpy, and if you moved to the edge of the bed the mattress would tilt so that you risked falling on the not very clean... More

The place is really beautiful and the waiters ready to serve you in the way how it should be. I was not really impressed by the food. I took the linguine and I have to say that it didn't impress me at all. Too sticky and lack in taste... my wife took the ravioli and she said they were ok...... More

Knowing we had 3 nights in Stresa, we thought it would be romantic and novel to stay on the island. Also knowing that this site frequently has weddings and other large parties, we avoided the weekend and chose mid week. When we arrived, we were told that there was a large "event" that evening and the restaurant was booked. We... More

I made the booking (room and restaurant) based on favorable reviews. Food at the restaurant was below average, the room was dirty, staff hostile. We wanted to leave immediately, but due to kids travelling with us it was (almost) impossible. Our room was simply dirty and we had a feeling that the cleaning after previous guests took roughly 5 min.... More

This was a return trip to Hotel Verbano after 27 years. This year my wife and I included our two adult children on our visit to Italy. The new ownership shows its care with updates and nice amenities; the remodeling kept the integrity of the building that was constructed over a century ago. The total bathroom redo includes a dual...

When you book to stay in the Hotel Verbano they ask what time you will arrive in Stresa so they can send the motor launch for you to take you to the island of Isola Pescatori where it is. How romantic is that? Now imagine one of those breathtaking Lake Maggiore sunsets with that incredible clarity of like that the... More
