A well run property with friendly helpful staff, large bright rooms and gorgeous views of the lake. We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed them all. Stresa is less crowded than Como and this quiet hotel near lots of good restaurants, and minutes walking from the ferry pier was a good location to launch explorations of the surrounding attractions, other lakes and the mountainous countryside and also to relax afterwards on the terrace with a glass of wine. Although they had no parking for our car, it was easy to find nearby street parking. And they even helped with laundry (for a fee, of course!).
