“No Stress in Stresa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

This place is great for R&R. Rooftop spa is as big as some hotel swimming pools and you have a great view across this beautiful lake while enjoying the water.
Stroll to town which is very "Old european" in its' layout.
Rooms are very well appointed and modern. Lobby is very welcoming with friendly efficient staff mostly bilingual so no checkin/checkout stress.
Breakfasts are well appointed with a delightfully delicious buffet.

Room Tip: Head for any upper floor with lake views.

fabulous hotel, lovely comfortable room, fantastic & friendly staff, wonderful views - especially from the sky bar, excellent food. From the hotel is an easy stroll to the town, ferry terminal and railway station - couldn't ask for anything more.

We spent a wonderful night in this lovely hotel which is located right on Lake Maggiore. Our room looked out over the lake with its gorgeous small islands and surrounding beautiful countryside. Our car was safely parked and we were able to enjoy this beautiful part of the world by having a drink on the wonderful roof top area. Breakfast was also excellent. I would love to return there one day.

I had traveled to ride the local mountains on bicycle (with a previously arranged local bike enthusiast/guide). It was obvious that I needed to store overnight my precious bike in a safe site. Front desk staff was always pleasant & assisted me to the garage to get my cycle.

Food in the morning was plentiful & of good quality.

Stresa is a very good location and the hotel is perfect in every way - There is a lovely warm and friendly atmosphere in the hotel run by a very nice Italian family.
The manager /owner Stefano went out of his way to make sure our stay was memorable and was very caring and attentive- we had a lovely room high up and with an amazing lake view and lovely balcony - The bed was specially comfortable ,the room stylish ,spotlessly clean and the bathroom with a double basin and Jacuzzi bath and good shower was excellent , nice and spacious.
Luigi the head waiter in the dining room made sure we were well looked after as did Bruno a hardworking waiter who seemed to be there at every meal -
Sara at the reception was so sweet as were all the staff and a friendly and smiling cleaning lady who somehow managed to slip into the room while we were at breakfast and leave it spic and span quickly and efficiently. All the staff were pleasant ,friendly and willing to please.
The roof top bar is smashing and very stylish -
We were there off season and the hotel was particularly quiet and with a very relaxing atmosphere .The autumn colours were outstanding in the whole area of Stresa and its surroundings -the hotel garden beautiful and well kept as were the Municipal promenade and countryside
The hotels position is perfect for local strolls, visiting the islands ( very close to the ferry) and five minutes walk to the station which enabled us to go to Zermatt in Switzerland for a very enjoyable day tour.
Close to the Mattarone Cable Car - a memorable experience and half way up is Alpino which has a beautiful Botanical Garden and at the top Alpyland with a nice chair lift ride and spectacular view and a fun ride for children.
Well Worth a visit to Isola Bella on the ferry ,the gardens there are amazingly beautiful and to Isola Pescatori where there are some good restaurants ..Also close to the hotel are the Zoological gardens (Parco Della Villa Pallavicino )
we walked there and there is a little train there from the ferry area Because of our good experience we will definitely return here in the summer for a family holiday with our children and grandchildren.
We were on half board and the breakfast was good as was the evening meal - lots of very good restaurants in Stresa too..

This hotel was an unexpected surprise for us.
The roof top bar is stunning, the Aperol Spritz tasted even better there, and the roof top pool and sunbeds have one of the best views I can imagine. We were there over a weekend, and even though there was a wedding on both nights, we could still access the bar and seating.
The breakfast is set in a large dining room, and there is an excellent selection available. It can at times be a bit busy with large groups of older tourists, but the service was good and the food plentiful.
We requested a side view lake room, and it was a beautiful view with a small balcony.
The rooms are reasonable size, with a huge bed, and bathroom was a little small, with some noise of water running at times but not intrusive. We were opposite the lift which can be a problem, but there was little outside noise heard.
I would recommend this hotel, if you don't stay here, it's at least worth a visit to the roof top.
