The quality of the hotel is just stunning. The rooms are comfortable, with a wide bathroom and extremely clean. I had 104 with view on the street (i.e., no view!) The staff is very kind and helpful, go to the point and provide information and practical solutions on any issue. You can travel to Isola dei Pescatori using the public transport (in the summer, one boat every 30 minutes from Stresa or Intra). If you travel before 8 AM or after 19 PM you must arrange with staff for a private boat (free of charge if you eat at the restaurant). I had to be at a formal dinner at Stresa till 11PM and the manager arranged a free boat to bring me back to the hotel. I hugely appreciated. There is free wifi (a bit slow), breakfast is very good and served in a small garden on the lake.
The restaurant deserves a comment: I had a truly amazing dinner. As an aperitif, complimentary glass of prosecco and crostino with bresaola and robiola (soft cheese). Then I got "Carpione al rafano" (gorgeous) and "dorso di sandra agli agrumi" (gorgeous again). The latter is the thick back (not the more usual fillet) of a predator fish. It's more tasty and structured than other smooth and typical lake fishes. The service was extremely caring and professional, view on the lake, two nice glasses of wines. really difficult to get more... i suggest to try the hotel or the restaurant with no hesitation: it's worth a sojourn on the island!
