Dear Mr Michael,
thank you for your flattering review. It’s a great pleasure to receive appreciations on our staff work and we’re happy to awe our guests with the heterogeneity of our luxurious furniture!
We’re honored that such an expert traveler like you appreciate the beauty of Maggiore Lake.
Our balconies and terraces are so comfortable to let you enjoy the best way the view over the Borromeo Islands!
I have been fortunate enough to stay here twice now with work. The hotel is like a large beautiful home. The interior has been very lavishly decorated and in keeping with the style of the building. It overlooks the lake and is about a 20mins walk along the lake to the town of Stresa, the hotel does provide a shuttle service too. Stresa itself is relatively small, some lovely shops (especially good for italian bags) and restaurants (recommend but need reservation - The Butterfly) The hotels rooms do vary ie the first room i had (probably the most expensive) was very large with a balcony overlooking the lake. There are side rooms which are smaller and the smallest rooms seem to be at the back of the hotel.
The food is excellent as are the staff, who cater for your every need. Breakfast is served in a large window fronted room with superb views over the lake. The hotel's website photos are a fair reflection of the interior. There is a spa but i havent visited it. In the warmer months there is an outdoor swimming pool and terrace area. Definitely a treat worth paying for.
Spent an amazing week here. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The food is to die for. Our lake view room did not disappoint. Fantastic view of the islands in the lake. Very comfortable bed. Easy walk into Stressa.
This is an average hotel with a very expensive look and price tag. Absolutely nothing comes with the room rate and you're charged for everything.....coffee, Wi-fi, ect. We stayed there for two nights in July and it was a very hot summer. We woke up sweating every night. Either they turn down the air conditioners or they're in desperate need of refurbishing. On a positive note, the bedding and staff were very pleasant.
Interesting these reviews....We stayed between 27th Oct until 2nd November.My husband stayed here 20 years ago with his family and always wanted to return. We had a wonderful time and the staff couldn't be any more accommodating. Our room was upgraded, the hotel was opulently and interestingly decorated.The food was lovely (and my husband is very particular). Both restaurants in which we had lunch in one and dinner in the other were superb. The staff were attentive and the shuttle car into and out of Stresa was excellent. The view from our room was exceptional and we really enjoyed it.Ok it was expensive but it was worth it for the experience. Our stay was happy and calm with well behaved smiling guests. We would return anytime and wish all the staff a successful and prosperous future.

Spending over $700 per night, you would hope that it would be a wonderful experience.
First, when we arrived at the hotel, they were hosting a meeting in the hotel. We were told that we would not able to use the lobby, main dining room, or almost a public areas. Later, we went down to the bar/lobby that night and were surrounded by people on their lap tops & cell phones, etc. There was no place for those of us staying in the hotel to sit or enjoy the evening. The next day, the meeting seemed to be over. That night we again went down to the bar & lobby as we had booked dinner in the hotel. The bar was somewhat open but the lobby was closed along with the main dining room for a wedding. We decided to go out for dinner instead. When we returned home, there were drunk people all over the place making a lot of noise below our room late into the night.
The next morning I complained when we were checking out. I was told by the agent that they have too many of those events at the hotel. Needless to say, we did not receive any compensation for our room cost. I would NEVER GO BACK to this place. I don't think anyone should go back too!
