We have just returned from a weeks holiday at Lake Maggiore, we stayed at the Astoria Hotel in Stresa. Having visited other Italian lakes, this holiday truly surpassed both of our previous stays in Garda and Como, as Maggiore is far prettier than others. Having read some reviews of the Astoria Hotel, we were a little concerned in our choice. However we need not have worried. The hotel has been decorated with great thought and all the public rooms are very clean and welcoming. We opted for a superior room with a view of the lake, the bed was very comfortable and the room exceptionally clean, with a great view of the Islands. Food seems to be a bone of contention with some reviewers but we have to say we found no problems at all. Breakfast is as expected, continental style and there is a more than adequate choice, sometimes the fruit is tinned but that is the case in a lot of Italian hotels. Four or five choices of meat and cheese, plus juices, yoghurt, rolls, croissant or toast, is surely enough for most people. The evening meal we found totally acceptable and well cooked, with a choice of 6 starters, at least 5 mains, followed by cheese and dessert of the day or fruit basket. If you did not want the dessert of the day you were always offered either ice cream or another choice. The Grand Buffet on Sunday evening was excellent. All of the staff were polite, attentive and friendly and did all they could to make you feel welcome and valued. We look forward to returning to Stresa in the future and would definately stay at the Astoria again. In fact there we saw one or two couples who have been visiting the hotel for years and they were greeted with great warmth by the staff, we saw this as a testament to a hotel who obviously value their clients.
