Chose this hotel as one of the very few hotels which is directly on the lakeside and away from the busy main road. and were not disappointed. We had a corner room which, as another reviewer mentioned has a slightly smaller balcony but offers a wider view. We agree a refrigerator in the room would be welcome. We ate in one night, which was excellent, we would also recommend La Posta Restaurant in the main square of Baveno, really nice food, friendly staff and a good price.
For a day out take the Maggiore Express to Locarno but be prepared to pay twice the price for food and drink as you would in the \italian part of the lake.
Don't come to Baveno expecting lots of shops and bars, Stressa is the place for this.
To sum up a super position,very clean, friendly staff with excellent breakfasts spent on the terrace overlooking the lake.
