We have been in hotel Della Torre by end of July of 2013 as family .
Hotel is on good and bad location on same time. Good location is because lake is few minutes walk away and there is station for ferry ( Carciano ) which can drive you to all islands and places around. As well there is starting point for cable car for mountain top Mottarone (beautiful panoramic view - must to see). Also, hotel is 10-15 min walking away from downtown of Stressa and you can walk near lake side which is very beautiful.
Bad position of hotel is for guests with rooms looking to mountain (opposite to lake). From that side of hotel is railway and trains are running quite often, It is not possible to sleep with open windows. But when you close windows and run air-condition (which is good) then is Ok.
Stuff in hotel is very frendly, polite and always want to help. Food is good (nothing special but not bed as well). Swimming pool is nice.
So, in sumarry hotel is very good for money what you pay and I would recommend it.
General note. Sressa is full of mosquito's. First I thought maybe that is just those few days (a lot of mosquito's) but if you go in any local pharmacy, you can find a lot of preparations to protect yourself from mosquito's. For a couple of days, our child (and we as well) has been bitten by mosquito's..
