Arrived early at the hotel and asked if we could leave the car in the carpark. The owner came out to greet us and said we could have our rooms immediately. Our bags were carried upstairs and we were shown around. There is a lift. The owner is a real gentleman and always shakes your hand morning and evening. He... More

We stayed 5 nights on the third floor in a room w/balcony. Although this hotel is older, our room was spacious with an updated bathroom. The walls are somewhat thin , however no real issue with adjoining rooms. Giuseppe, the owner and staff were always gracious and eager to please . As a person who needs a substantial breakfast, Fontana's... More

Also the room had the first ever sit down shower I have ever used. I could hear the people in the room next door which was somewhat... More

This is our second stay after the first stay in September last year and everything is maintained as excellent as our first stay especially customer service mindset of the owner. No restaurant in hotel and nearby for dinner. Wifi in room of second floor does not work well.

Hotel was selected based on all the positive reviews in Trip Advisor. It is absolutely true that Guiseppe, the manager of this hotel, is exceptional, and one of the best proprietors we've ever encountered. He will do everything in his power to make you feel welcome and your visit a pleasant one. He even set up the breakfast buffet a... More

Many previous reviewers have commented on the level of customer service provided by Guiseppe, the owner of this hotel, some indicating that we should all expect the level of service he provides. However, I have to say, that he really does go the extra mile. He really made our four night stay quite special. Any recommendations were happily given re... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent 3 night stay here. The place is very nice with a balcony overlooking the gorgeous garden and Lake Maggiore. The owner is very nice and helpful and provides an outstanding breakfast.
