Grand and regal hotel. We had a lake view suite with 2 balconies. Every morning, it was a treat to go down to the dining room for the amazing breakfast buffet. Everything you could ever want for breakfast. Service was excellent. Far superior to other hotels in Stresa.

This is the most fantabulous hotel that we have ever stayed in. Super clean, quiet and the view over the lake is breathtaking. The room was very spacious and the breakfasts overlooking the lake just superb as well as being treated like royalty by the staff. Recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a romantic getaway. You will... More

This luxurious, classical hotel with modern installations like the spa is recommended to those who enjoy classic art –the hotel has galleries with different classic art such as Roman, Greek, etc- and also love good food, then this is your hotel in Europe. You may also feel like living in a truly Hercule Poirot story! Very good pricing in low... More

We just fell upon this charming hotel looking for a place to stay before our flight from Malpensa. About 45 minutes away. Beautiful room overlooking the lake. Lovely restaurant, lovely lobby, helpful staff. A bit on the expensive side but just gorgeous. The waiters in the restaurant were chatty and soo nice. Don't miss the gondola up the mountain!

Like being in a period film, this hotel evokes memories of times past, but the services and facilities are first rate and bang up to date. The indoor swimming pool was very modern, and the water was nice and warm.

Opulent, traditional interior - well-kept rooms with extremely attentive, polite staff throughout. The SPA area is much bigger than you'd expect; the indoor pool relaxing and gym area bright and spacious. The very wide-ranging buffet breakfast has everything - even freshly-squeezed orange juice. The conservatory breakfast area overlooking the shore is Stresa's most-breathtaking view. The immaculate gardens are just great... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights in the middle of a six week trip through Europe, and it was without doubt the highlight of the accommodation we experienced on this trip. We had a high room with a balcony overlooking the lake and islands and it was an experience second to none. The hotel is very grand and... More

This hotel gives you a feeling of being in a old-time grandiose movie. Location is picture perfect, especially if you have a lake-facing room. Corridors are full of art, each floor having a different theme. Rooms are not big, but nice. Surroundings are magnificent. We've been moved from another hotel, and you could feel in service that we were treated... More
