We really enjoyed staying at this hotel in Stresa, The hotel is about 20 minutes walk along the lake shore from the centre and it had a homely feel. There was a good cold buffet breakfast, but boiled eggs were available on request, and a good three course evening meal in the hotel restaurant which was partly outside. We had a front facing room with balcony having sun in the morning, there was some road noise; a rear, lake view room would have been quieter but probably more expensive. The room was clean, and of fair size, the bed comfortable. The reception staff were friendly and helpful, speaking good English. Tourist information could be found from Tour Operators files (Inghams) or Lake steamer/ bus/train timetables at reception.
The hotel garden and pool area were beautiful. Overall this is a good 3 star hotel run by the owners, Signor and Signora Rosa. Signor Rosa's paintings adorn the walls of the hotel and its bedrooms. There is a lake steamer landing stage about 200 yards walk down the side road for trips to the islands but the town centre landing stage has a more frequent service to other places on the lake. The Matterone cable car is also just down the side road from the hotel. We loved this hotel and resort and will hope to return. The hotel has a rooof terrace with beautiful panoramic views.
