The title of the review says it all. The hotel is down a small winding alley off the main road passing Lake Maggiore through Angera. It is nominally 3-star but expect nice comfortable rooms with a tasteful decor. The hotel appears family run and as a result has a certain degree of (charming) informality to it all. The staff did not speak much English but made effort to be helpful. Had a nice quiet sleep. The breakfast was nice though the choice wasn't large. Having said that, I don't usually have huge breakfasts so was sufficient for my liking. There was no charge for the wifi access and the speed was reasonable. On the night of my arrival, I asked for suggestions for a restaurant and was pointed to a nice place nearby (in the next street effectively next to Hotel Pavone. The pizza and beer were great and very nice large slice of tiramisu was most welcome.
As others have noted, the hotel is a stone's throw away from the lake which is nice to walk around. Angera itself is a charming little town, with winding streets and a 13th century castle. I enjoyed walking around the streets (though they were rather quiet as it seems the place is used mainly for holiday homes by people in Milan - I didn't mind the lack of tourist bustle though). The castle is a short walk up from the hotel and you get some great views from there.
I stayed at the hotel for two nights for business but I could easily consider coming here for a weekend getaway or staying for longer and using Angera as a base to explore the surroundings of Lake Maggiore. Would definitely stay again when back in the area.
