Just spent a week in this hotel and absolutely loved it. One of the best hotels we've stayed in. Wonderful decor, absolutely fantastic gardens and flowers with really friendly staff. Excellent facilities including a swimming pool well served by staff. The history of the hotel is interesting as it is 150yrs old and has had some very famous guests. Breakfasts were good, plenty of choice, served either on the terrace or in the dining room. Dinner was a bit expensive and seemed to be mainly a variation on veal so we ate at the many restaurants in Stresa. Definatel a hotel to re-visit.
