We stayed here for 2 nights as part of Globus Italian Mosaic tour. The hotel is very beautiful and in an absolutely perfect location. We were in room 336 with a stunning view of Lake Maggiore (pity the weather was so bad for us). Our room had a small balcony which looked straight out at the gorgeous lake view, however... More

2 level top-floor room with lake view was breathtaking. Beautiful "Belle-Epoque style" hotel; transports you back in time. Incredible view over the lake, mountains, and pool. The location is stunning and the hotel's interiors are beautifully maintained.

The hotel is extremely sophisticated in decoration with caring staff, the best rooms I've come across, two stunning pools, and in a perfect location only a five/ten minute walk to the fine restaurants and shops. I would love to visit Lake Maggiore again, I've been around most of Italy and it still remains my favourite. Everything about the location is... More

If you do not think that the main aim of a tourist is to maximize the miles traveled, if you do not want to look at as many monuments as possible and remember none of them, if you like to enjoy spending an afternoon visiting a baroque palace and walking slowly in its garden, if you relax looking at the...

Probably the number 2 hotel of Stresa,sitting right on the lake and with superb views of the lake and Isolabella. Very varied rooms, views sizes. Elegant formal areas and delightful grounds as well as a lovely large pool. Good quality food. A fine choice for a visit to the lake.

Nice place with a nice view, but a bit dated. Certainly not worth the price. Stresa is a great location but this hotel thinks itself a bit too grand. Snooty staff. Nice room with a lovely view, but as soon as the plumbing kicks in it means no sleep for the night. Every pipe in the hotel led to the... More

We stayed here last weekend and were the last guests if the season before the hotel closes for the winter. Overall we had a great stay. Booking.com had messed up our reservation and the hotel were very proactive in sorting out the issue and offering us a free upgrade and a reduced breakfast buffet charge of 16 euro reduced from...
