I can confirm that earlier contributors have judged this hotel correctly, having read many of their positive reports before booking, the hotel was exactly what we expected, apart from some minor issues we experienced during our stay which may be of interest others that follow.
We had a lake view room on the first floor, as a result all the waste water from the higher floors had to exit the building via our bath room, which being a busy popular hotel was often in the extreme early hours of the morning. I do not know how other hotels prevent this occurring but "if you will forgive me" not being in the first "flush" of youth ourselves must be possible as it has never caused us sleepless nights in any other hotel we have used.
Table service at the evening meal was initially too intrusive, we felt rushed into making our meal selection and water and wine was readily poured for us if, or if not, when we wanted it however this was far preferable to the careless attitude that developed as soon as some local "celebrities" arrived. We and others at tables adjacent to us, were treat with complete distain in comparison to a table of 4/5 Italians and a single elderly lady that all around us
presumed must be the owner of the building. My wife and I, like many others are in the habit of showing our gratitude for the service we have received with a tip at the end of our stay, I am afraid we did not feel this to be justified on this occasion.
These issues did not distract what was our second wonderful holiday in Stressa.
