We very much enjoyed our stay in the hotel. Rooms a bit small but acceptable. Just one comment. Previous posts have raved about the risotto with blueberries and mushrooms. A word of caution - this dish looks unappetising and will not be to everyone's taste. For my wife it was the wrong choice. This does not reflect on the restaurant... More

Three friends stayed here for two nights in July. We loved the hotel and the view from our room was amazing. When we got out of our car we heard the cow bells and were surrounded by mountains. The staff were very friendly. We really enjoyed the breakfast and felt there was great variety. The cheese fondue was amazing! The... More

Great little find nestled high in the Swiss Alps - food was excellent and the staff wonderful. We were surprised at first when we were asked if we had a reservation - walked in around 7:30 pm the place was packed for dinner -

We already stayed and reviewed Stella Alpina in Trip Advisor back in 2007. We finally got the chance to return and have found very positive upgrades. This time, we got rooms 1 and 7 and we were particularly pleased with room 7, a family duplex suite that can sleep 6 people, with balconies overlooking the beautiful mountains. What is new... More

We booked a triple room which was described to be bigger. In fact, it was the size of a standard room with a queen and a single bed. The bathroom needs make over, especially the shower. Breakfast was disappointing, only little choice. The home made cake was good though. Staff mostly didn't speak English which was horrible when we wanted... More

Dear customer, we are very sorry for not having met your expectations. Have you reserved a superior triple room. It 'a nice room, but not' as big as a suite. We invite you to see the pictures on our website, "the Superior Triple Room." Not all the staff knows the English language, but for a hotel of its category and... More

We liked this hotel very much. The place in in the middle of nowhere, but at the same time the comfort you have is amazing. It should be nice for skiing during winter. Hotel has a small, but cosy sauna and jacuzzi. Breakfast is really good. Dinner was very enjoyable with good wine and service. Rooms have tea/coffee amenities.

We were driving in the area and stopped for dinner. Everything on the menu was available and superb. We were the only diners and the service was prompt BUT not rushed. The wine list was fine. We were so very satisfied. The atmosphere, ambiance were excellent.

We just tried the restaurant and not the Hotel, the atmosphere is very nice, the food is ok, we did expect more because everything is home made and it is but the bread for example was not well baked and was half row, pity! In my opinion they overprice the place taking the advantage that it is the ONLY place... More

We spent three days in the Stella Alpina in August 2012 for some hiking in the amazingly beautiful larch and pine forests. We got to know Mauro Oliani as a very helpful, hospitable, friendly and uncomplicated host, making our stay very relaxing and enjoyable. It was clear for us that we will return to this place in winter for some... More

I recently spent a few days at the Stella Alpina up in Ronco Bedretto, where I was most impressed by the cosy atmosphere and the warm welcome I received. Mauro Oliani and his team were ready to fulfil every wish and treated me with great respect and friendliness. I would warmly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to go skiing,... More
