If you're seeking a quiet location in Stresa this is a great choice. The clientele are mainly retirees, so it is a low key hotel, but it does mean you do have a quiet holiday. The room we had was behind reception and had a pretty view of the garden and pool. The pillows were very flat would be my... More

Although the interior may seem a little bit dated, this is a charming hotel with a great staff offering good value for money. The breakfast is plentiful and varied. My partner and I liked it so much we came back again this year and our second time has been every bit as good as the first.

Stayed in Stresa for three nights - this hotel is in the best spot, has great views and the staff are very helpful and friendly. You can get to the hotel by foot or there are taxis at the station - 9-10 euro. The view of Isola Bella and the other items from the top floor are amazing.

Cannot think of a negative of any significance. Very comfortable bed which is a big plus. Bedding changed three times in a week and room cleaned every day. Food very samey for breakfast but plentiful. Different multiple choice menu every evening and without fail the choices we made were all very good. Drinks reasonably priced and staff always helpful and... More

If you are coming to Stresa to relax, then this is the hotel for you. The owners (Mr and Mrs Rosa) and their loyal staff cannot do enough to make your stay comfortable, memorable and enjoyable. We stayed half board for eight nights, and found it to be excellent value for money. The communal areas of the hotel are full... More

I like Italian family run hotels. They have a charm of their own and are often good value. The Royal is typical of the type and I chose this for our stay in Stresa for our Anniversary because of reviews accepting some of the negative points raised (more on this below) The location a bit out of town and takes...

After a great stay at The Hotel Royal last year, we decided to re-visit this year and weren't disappointed. After checking in, the junior receptionist showed us up to our room on the 3rd floor, as we had requested a room with a bath. It was slightly smaller than the rooms with a shower, but it didn't matter. There was... More

This is a clean, modern hotel with a great location, i.e., near the boats that take you to the islands. And it has off-street parking! The breakfast was good and the price was reasonable. Walking distance into town but only for people who like to walk. Recommend.

We were so happy with this very sweet and lovely hotel run by an adorable Italian couple. Very well situated a perfect 15 in walk from town. We reserved late so had a garden view which was just fine - it was a nice large room with terrace. Lovely views from the hotel bar onto lake and very friendly staff.... More
