We booked a Garden view double and were delighted to find that we had been upgraded to a Lakeview room. The room was clean, well-maintained and extremely comfortable. The bathroom was huge with an enormous and very comfortable bath. The hotel is in a great location - a short walk into town, but almost opposite the Borromean Islands from which it takes its name. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant on both nights and thought that the food was excellent - much better than we were expecting - and the service, while a little slow on the first night, was friendly and professional. Breakfast was also good and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for the staff. We borrowed some bikes for a tour of Stresa (no charge) and used the tennis court (the hotel happily provided balls). The ony negative we saw was that reception was at times undermanned and so you might find yourself waiting a bit longer than you might hope to check in or out, but overall the hotel exceeded our expectaions and we can't wait to go back.
