From start to finish we loved this hotel! First off, how can you beat the view!!?? We rented a Junior Suite with a terrace and lake view - WOW! The room was spacious and had a separate sitting area from the bedroom - perfect! It had two large french-doors that opened onto a lovely terrace overlooking the main street and... More

Employees took much effort into service: after every stay in room, equal night, morning or afternoon, each room is checked and if necessary for example the bed is made again. We were very surprised. Breakfast is very simple - the scrabled and the boiled eggs could have been more warm, but what we were really missing, were fresh vegetables. Finally... More

Excellent hotel, the rooms were large and had a view to the lake. Beds were comfortable, and the room well clean, but the best of the stay was without doubt the breakfast and the excellent coffee they served. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in the region.

We went to Verbania to attend a wedding and stayed in this hotel for three nights. The comfortable room was spacious, and there was a private outside patio with table and chairs connected to the room. We found the decor of our room a little depressing, but the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, the very excellent breakfast, and the... More

I stayed here for two nights for a wedding nearby. Very cute little hotel - excellent location for exploring the town centre and strolling along the lake (the ferry terminal is just across). I had the single room - vey tiny indeed but it did offer everything I needed and the bathroom was (in comparison) actually quite sizeable. It is... More

We stayed at the Ancora Hotel because of a cousin's wedding in town. The rooms are clean and I would suggest a corner room with lake view for those that love natural light and Alpine lake scenery. Though it is a small Italian town, best known for people zipping by on loud scooters, the double-paned windows eliminated all sound. They... More

The views are good, although not as spectacular as some, as it overlooks one of the main busy ferry terminals on the lake. Handy if you want to use the ferries (which I would recommend), but not as pretty as some hotels. The car park is a short walk away, but is the most secure I've used in many years... More

This was the perfect hotel for our guests and ourselves for our daughter's wedding. We all had wonderful, clean, sensible and convenient rooms. The service was more than great, it was warm and personalized. We felt at home and yet on vacation. The view was great and the traffic noise on the main road in front of the hotel was... More

Very nice hotel with a perfect view right on the lake. The rooms are well sized and clean, but the furniture and fittings are quite old. We had a room in the fifth floor and the elevator ended on the forth floor, so if you have large and heavy suitcases try to avoid staying in the fifth floor. The rooms... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in early July 2013, the room was fabulous, very contemporary with a great view. The hotel staff were friendly and accommodating and the breakfast was simply outstanding. It was a little noisy on our balcony due to the road noise and bar activity below, however this wasn't a problem when the windows were closed... More
