We came hear for the breakfast buffet (we were staying at an AirBnB) and loved the beauty of the building and friendly service. The food was good but at 33 Euro per person this was more than what we had paid at restaurants for rather amazing dinners. Still, we had a nice time just felt like 20 Euro would have... More

We recently stayed here as part of an organised tour of Italy. All the hotels on our trip have been high quality 4 or 5 star so we have a fair comparison of old and new elegant old world and modern. This hotel as you draw up to it is set in a stunning location and is indeed a stunning... More

Believe it our not but this restaurant was the only place in our Milan and surroundings week long stay that the pace of the meal was slow and relaxed. Seems everywhere else restaurants are recognizing that if you pace the meals faster tables can be turned and more money made. Well this place is sticking to the Euro way of... More

Came here on our first night staying at this hotel. Booked a table on the terrace overlooking the lake (highly recommended). We hada lovely welcome from all the staff. Chose to have a shared starter (the bresaola), then I had the most wonderful lobster tagliolini, then a fish soup. Had local wines, which were tasty. The view was amazing throughout... More

Shortly after checking in at the hotel and being shown to our room, we were treated to a severe thunderstorm on our first night in Stresa and were therefore glad that we’d booked a table at the hotel’s own restaurant. How wrong could we be? The restaurant staff members were cold and unwelcoming bar for a couple of exceptions. I... More

The hotel is over the top in its beauty; the restaurant has very inventive menus and service is top notch. Call ahead at least one day to get outside dining as the experience is wonderful. The meals are very reasonably priced which was surprising considering the service, location and quality.

The aromatherapy massage was divine - one of the best I have ever had. Beautiful lavender oils were used in a full body massage.

Stayed here recently. Last time was 4 years ago I think. I quite like the location - off the town but a short walk to it. Had a seafront room with a balcony. Quant furnishings and a nice bathroom, although it took a little while to get my shower working right. But I did it! Only 4 stars as it... More

We only had the buffet breakfast, we were there two days. It was very good. Waiters were ok, maybe grouchy because it was hot or maybe they are not well paid. They could be friendlier.

I am a therapist in the UK and have visited this Spa on the two occasions that I've been to Stresa. Firstly, the rooms are good but the couches are fantastic! The couches are so much more comfortable, and practical than the average UK treatment couches. Then there's the staff who are so professional, and work hard to converse with... More
