“serenity personified”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Carillon is a special property. Its artistic heritage, its scenic location and the warmth of the mother daughter team, all add to the charm of this hotel. It has a wide lakefront with a beach, a lawn and a deck for guests to lounge around all day. You can rent a boat from the yard next door and jet into the lake. Or you could admire the sun over the hills across the lake. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the view from the balcony breath taking.
You are better off though if you have your own transport at this property since it is between baveno and feriolo.

A very good hotel right on the lake near the main road and very close to the autostrade which is very convenient.(turn left at the interchange). the rooms are on the lake side and quiet as you like. you feel like your right over the lake and can make a jump for it. The room was clean and had all you need including a residents lounge area on the main floor. the cleaning is good and you feel like you're entering a new room after it's done. there's a private beach, you can swim with the tranquil swans who lives there. we had a lovely breakfast with a lake view and the staff is very friendly and helpful . you must have your car as it is a bit out of town. bec the hotel is near the road you can hear the cars at night. the wireless works only in the lobby and on most of the rooms not so well in our room (left side of the building). you can go to this lovely lovely lovely Italian family restaurant called 'Osteria' nearby (2 km) ask lovely Carlotta at the lobby. from Baveno you can catch a Cruz to the boromiens islands.
A Great stay.

Room Tip: 331 generally every room on the third floor...

A good 3 star hotel right on the lake and while the road is adjacent the rooms are on the lake side and quiet as you like. The room we had had interesting colour scheme but it was clean and had all you need to be comfy including a residents lounge area on the main floor. We found the staff friendly helpful and the hotel grows on you. Car required as it is out of town a mile but has nice lakefront seating.

Old fashioned hotel in the meaning that you feel that the staff want you to enjoy the stay. They are very helpfull and provide exellent service. The rooms are not luxurious, but with sufficient amenities, good beds and view of the lake. The place was very clean. Good location a the north part of Stresa, close to the autostrada exit.

This has been already the second time at the Carillon hotel and like the first time we have enjoyed it very much. Very friendly service, clean, good breakfast buffet, private lake beach. What else do we want?
