We are quite pleased that we found this hotel + restaurant for our last stay in Italy. Friendly staff, funny room (bedroom in etage), big warm pool, beautiful lake view from the room and a very good restaurant. The breakfast however consisted mostly of sweets and was a bit of a disappointment considering the connected restaurant.

We were disappointed because we really wanted to love this restaurant. However the food was over fussy with combinations which did not work and a pretentious style of presentation. I love eating in special, Michelin starred restaurants for the inventiveness and unusual flavours, but although this chef surprised us, he did not delight with his flavours. Also, I do not...

Il Sole die Ranco is a small and quirky hotel, tucked away from the main road directly by Lago Maggiore. The rooms are charming, clean and beautiful. No WiFi, but who wants to be surfing the net, when they can be enjoying the fabulous hotel??? Staff are most helpful and friendly. The restaurants serves first class food, and I would...

We (my wife and I) spend 3 nights in this Hotel. We really enjoyed the time there. The staff was very attentive and friendly. We had a very big room with a nice view over the lake. The breakfast is a Italian style breakfast but everything we wanted was there. On two evenings we also had dinner in the restaurant....

We have stayed twice and love the property but it really does need a renovation. It is the only place to stay in the area and the prices are great. Ask for a room with a view because some have none. The property is small and fills quickly. Angera, the town nearby is delightful and Lago Maggiore is beautiful.

We stayed here one night in July 2015. The area is very pleasant and the lake is gorgeous. We didn't spend much time in the room but it was very large with an extra couch, an extra bed in a mezzanine and a cute little balcony. The bathroom was extremely nice with all new fixtures. Most of our time was...

First and foremost, the double bed in the "superior room" was actually made of two single beds put together, so that after 5 minutes there was a gap between the two mattress. Absolutely disappointing. The AC wasn't good enough to modify the room temperature. It's definitely overpriced. Dinner was good, but overpriced. The service in general was below expectations. I...

My expectations prior to arrival were modest in view of the photo's I had seen on this and their web site. On arrival after a full days travelling, a welcome alcoholic beverage and a meal I thought would be grand? This notion quashed before I even traversed the uneven steps to room 5; where the door handle always came away...

Il Sole di Ranco is located in the little village of Ranco on the southern end of Lake Maggiore and while set a little ways away from the major tourist centers on the lake like Stressa it is easy to get to them either by car or boat (ferry). The hotel sits in beautiful grounds with a lovely view of...
