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

There is no doubt that this hotel is absolutely beautiful and is set in a wonderful location. The common areas and the bedrooms were outstanding in their décor and beautifully maintained. Beds and pillows were comfortable and our rooms (at the rear overlooking the lovely garden - quieter than those at the front looking over the Lake) were excellent. Breakfast... 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

This is a wonderful spot to stop in for afternoon cocktails. The lobby bar is elegant and a great place to relax with a campari soda and people watch. The garden behind the hotel is a must see - the statue of the nymphs and the musical water feature (every half hour) is beautiful.

the food was good but not as good as we expected. The wine and desserts were better that the dinner itself. The service was little bit lost due to the restaurant was full with the guest of the Hotel. It's nice experience due to the amazing location and decoration of the Hotel but the restaurant itself needs to improve the... More

The setting is absolutely beautiful, you sit in their grand dining hall or (as in our case) their lake view sun terrace (although it was dark by the time we got there). Service is very good and friendly. We had the menu. The choices may have been a bit on the safe side, the food was fine, no complaints but... More

Thanks to “hofmakl” for both her review (this one and the one about the hotel). Obviously I liked the review about the hotel much better but I appreciate that she took the time to write about our restaurant too. True, the setting is impressing, we invest a lot in the decorations and it shows. The view is great too, too... More

My wife and I were guests in the hotel for two nights and ate on both evenings in the restaurant. On the first evening we were impressed by the service. We both skipped antipasto and primo and went straight to the secondo. My wife enjoyed her veal on celeriac mousse very much. My lamb filet pieces with artischokes spears and... More

Beautiful hotel right by the lake and away from the main town, yet, walking distance everywhere. Exquisite deco, very rich and full of antiques and beautiful paintings. Very comfortable beds and rooms, bathroom with the whirlpool bath! Breakfast is an event itself. There is everything you could wish for from continental option to eggs, bacon and sausages. Everything very good... More

We wanted to have a diffrent dining experince so we decided go for a more luxurious restaurant. The hotel looked very grand . The dining room was nice looked elegant. We check the menu and decided to have rivoli and wine. I found the waiter a bit arrogant . the other one inexperienced. My husband had dessert and he liked... More
