This is a beautiful old hotel with wonderful furnishings. It is within walking distance of the shopping area in Stresa. It is on the Lake front with beautiful views over Lake Maggiore. The Reception staff were exellent and we had a most enjoyable stay. No wifi or coffee in the rooms though. Quiet at night and within walking distance of the ferry or boats to Isola Bella, Madré and Pescatori. Good restaurants in the town.
