This hotel was in an excellent location, just across the road from the ferries that ply Lake Maggiore to the islands. The owners were obliging and recommended good places to eat and ordered us a taxi, which arrived promptly, when we left.
We were unfortunate to have a room in the adjoining building which was very basic, and extremely cold and quite damp. We could not get any washing dry.
The breakfast was adequate. Wifi, which we thought was free was not, as charges were applicable. Look at the fine print. If it were not for the location I would probably not recommend it.
