Wonderfully friendly people. Lovely old-world charm, and a very good value. There are hotels closer to the main drag, but this one is just up the block from the supermarket, as well as shops and resturants. It is very close to the train, which you cannot see, but definitely hear at night. Not a huge drawback, it did not bother me or my wife, but worth a mention. Stayed two nights and would recommend.

As a solo traveller, I can only comment that my experience of the hotel was first class. Clean room, excellent wifi, and a satisfying breakfast. The proximity to the railway did not disturb me, the friendliness of the staff was superb.

Room Tip: If you have a light sleeper, try to get a room on the side of the hotel away from the railway line.

My Husband and I spent a wonderful 8 days at this Hotel and we can highly recomend it. We stayed in the Annexe which was superb - our room was comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The family that run the hotel are wonderful; nothing was too much trouble (including organising medical care for my Husband who took ill during our stay); their recommendations of things to do and restaurants to eat at were tops. You will not regret visiting this lovely hotel set in gorgeous grounds for a relaxing holiday in magnificent Stresa and Lago Maggiore. Whilst not on the Lake itself it is but a short walk through the lovely little town of Stresa to reach the Lake shore and the Ferry to the magical Borromean Isalnds.

Room Tip: If you stay in the Annexe request a room with a balcony so you can sit outside and enjoy the view.

First impression was of a slightly old fashioned establishment. However, the location is superb with excellent views of the lake from our room in the main house. It is set in a lovely garden, though the peacefulness is broken at times by the railway nearby. Bed was very comfortable, room clean and towels changed each day. Shower was over bath, with plenty of hot water but a screen that needs to be improved. Staff were always friendly and helpful, preparing drinks even when the bar was not really open. Wide range of food served buffet style for breakfast, waiter always willing to fetch extra cups of cappacino. Easy walking distance of lake ferry and several good places to eat. Overall very good.

Room Tip: Worth paying extra for a lake view!!

Just returned from a 9 night stay at the Hotel Du Parc and would recommend it to anyone. It had an olde world charm, friendly and helpful staff and a beautiful garden. The rooms are spacious, clean, bright and beautifully presented. It is worth paying the extra 15 euro per night for the lake view room in the main building, but from other comments the annexe building seems just as good. It has to be said that the railway line is noisy, but you get used to it. The larger hotels on the lakeside (Bristol, Regina Palace and Astoria) all suffer from the noise of wedding parties, discos and fireworks. Sadly, Du Parc has no access to a swimming pool, and other hotels want to charge 20 euros per person per day. Try the lake - it is exhilarating!

Room Tip: See above - go for the lake view.

My wife and I stayed here six nights at the end of May. What a lovely hotel! And what a great, more intimate alternative to the huge establishments on Stresa’s lakefront. The Du Parc is just a couple of minutes’ walk from two atmospheric little piazzas full of cafes and restaurants; five minutes from the quayside from which the Lake Maggiore ferries depart, (but allow double that for the gentle climb back to the hotel through Stresa’s tempting, shop-filled narrow streets); and ten minutes from the town’s rail station.

Our high-ceilinged, traditionally furnished room in the annexe was spacious, clean and comfortable. Continental breakfast in the Du Parc's sunny breakfast room, looking out over the town and the hotel’s flower-filled front lawn and gardens, was a real treat each morning. The desk staff were charming and helpful, none more so than the manager himself, who really went out of his way to answer – with the aid of pictures from his computer - our various queries about places to visit further afield.

You certainly don’t need a car to enjoy the area around Stresa and the nearby lakeside towns. If you do bring a car, there’s plenty of on-site parking space, but we did notice that it filled up quickly after about 4.30pm each day. As it happened, that wasn’t an issue for us, as we left our vehicle parked in the same spot for six days and travelled extensively around the southern half of Lake Maggiore using the area’s excellent train and ferry services.

We could not fault the service and civility we experienced at the Du Parc, but it would be remiss of me not to mention that there is a railway line behind the hotel, and trains do rumble up and down it day and night. We found we very quickly got used to this, and after the first half-day we barely noticed the noise and it certainly didn’t keep us from sleeping soundly each night.

We definitely would – and hopefully will – stay at the Du Parc again.

This family run hotel was recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed! It is located a short stroll from the center of Stresa and guests at this hotel enjoy nice views of town and lake beyond. Very convenient to the ferry dock. The hotel has beautiful, well tended gardens ( gorgeous rhododendrons ) where you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine. The public rooms are nicely decorated with antiques, well worn oriental rugs, and old Venitian glass chandeliers.
The owners and staff were most gracious and we had several choices of rooms as we checked in. We selected room no. 3 on the second floor of the main building, which had french doors leading out to a huge terrace overlooking the town and lake beyond. My guess is the higher your floor, the more lake view you will enjoy. We loved our big terrace-----a relaxing spot after a long day of ferries and touring. And the tiled bathroom in that room was enormous. The creaky wooden floors and stairways just added the the charm of this place, which we were told was built as a private residence sometime around 1913, but has obviously had many renovations, including a new annex building adjacent to the original house. There was a computer available in the public rooms for guests and wifi throughout the hotel. The owners were very helpful on helping us plan a day of hiking and picnicking. Breakfasts were very good in the lovely dining room, overseen by "Mario" who has been with this hotel more than 20 years and is very conscientious about his job.
If your plans include Stresa and beautiful, user-friendly Lake Maggiore, be sure to stay at this lovely, old world Italian "home away from home".
