Stayed here for a week in May. Good breakfast with plenty of choice. It took a while to work out the best time for cooking your own soft boiled eggs but about six minutes was right. 10-15 minute walk along the coast to the centre so a nice stroll. The comfortable room was a decent size with big bathroom. The... More

Very nice place to spend a few days like a local in an old but still charming stressa. The owner loves his property and you start feeling the same. Breakfast room with a garden view and home baked coffee cakes with cappuccino are some things to remember.

We stayed here 3 nights. Our room was very clean. We were on the upper floor and had a nice balcony with table & chairs, with a great view. Definitely the carpeting & decorating is dated; for me, that adds to the charm but wouldn't be for everyone. Our bathroom had a white & black wall tile that reminded me... More

Beautiful small hotel that is in a great location in Stresa. Just a short walk into town and down by the water. Giuseppe is extremely personable and caring and was very helpful with ideas for restaurants etc. Rooms are very clean --- nothing special, except we had a nice veranda and a wonderful view of the Lake! Breakfasts buffet was... More

An easy drive from Milan Linate airport to this hotel in Stresa. Guiseppe, the owner, was most welcoming and helpful with directions to various places. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are comfortable and many have balconies and a beautiful view of the lake. Breakfast was delicious in the beautiful dining room. A great location, walking distance to many... More

The genial host went out of his way to ensure one's comfort. He, his family and staff were all exceptionally welcoming. Our host was most helpful with restaurant recommendations - all of which proved to be excellent choices. Breakfast provided many delicious options with enough variety to avoid boredom as we were there for 12 days. The beds were very... More

We stayed at Hotel la Fontana in mid-September. We booked the hotel on the basis of many positive reviews on Trip Advisor, but were extremely disappointed with what we found. In fact, we would have moved to another hotel, but we would not have got a refund for an early checkout. Many reviewers seem to have focused on the warm... More

Good WiFi, Decent beds, Very good breakfast selection, The owner cares for you in a very charming way. The room are not the kind that you should spend a cozy day. But why should you do that in Stresa? It’s around 800m to the boats to the Bella/Pescatore Islands and the charming old town. If you want to be closer... More

The faded glory of this place only adds to its charm. We were made to feel especially welcome by the proprietor, his family, and staff. The grounds are expansive and calm, yet close to all including access to the lake. Breakfast was good, the AC worked, and the wifi was reliable and worked throughout the hotel.
