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

...nothing beats staying on the island and hearing the lake lapping outside your window at night. Yes, I agreed it's a little noisy if there's a function but the rooms facing Isola Bella have spectacular views from their balconies that make up for it. The rooms are very basic and decorated in a old-worldly non-matching way. We dined at the... More

The Verbano Hotel is on the Pescatori Island and offers great views of the lake and in particular Isola Bella. However, the rooms are very basic and the bathrooms do not include showers, but just a bath with a hand shower. However, the views are fantastic and the bonus of waking up hearing the lake rather than a noisy street... More

Don't stay here! This is a real expensive restaurant with lovely food. By all means eat here, but don't waste your money on a room. The outdoor terrace is used for food service. You can expect lively noise and chatter until midnight on nights that the restaurant is busy. Impossible to get to sleep. If you pay 150 or 200... More

Be warned that Verbano is no hotel. It appears from upon arrival that the restaurant is the main priority for the hotel. The staff ignore you and are really noisy shouting and smashing bottles til 01.00 and starting again at 06.30. The Verbano charge you 5 star prices for 2 star service. The only thing good about verbs no is... More

I'd find it very hard to conceive that anybody could find an overnight at The Hotel Verbano not to be a special privilege. To be sure, a professional hotel reviewer will find fault with the hotel - it has its blemishes - but when you've got it, you can get away with things that others may trip over. The Hotel... More

We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Stresa and the surrounding islands on Maggiore at the quiet start of the spring/summer season. We arrived by rail in Stresa in the early evening in a downpour of rain and made the trip from the station down to the ferry where we got the last ferry across to the island and... More

After a very hot walk-about we were anxious to find a nice shady spot for lunch. The homemade pasta was delicious and satisfying. Great views, good value, and the resident pheasant was an added bonus. Nice spot to enjoy a meal as you're waiting for the ferry.
