Hotel: Well maintained family run establishment.
Location: Excellent central location on the lakeside at Stresa. 2-3min. walk to ferry and 5min. walk to town centre.
Room: We had a first floor room overlooking the lake. It was spacious, well appointed and decorated. It had a safe and mini-bar.
The bathroom was good and in good condition. The air-con was effective and not too noisy.
Unfortunately it was close to the area from which housekeeping worked and from about 7.30 in the morning there was a fair amount of movement in the corridor. This was not enough of a problem for us to consider asking for a room change. The standard of housekeeping was high.
Dining: There is a large dining room with excellent staff.
Breakfast: there was a choice of tea or coffee , a range of cold juices or mineral water.
The usual range of cold meats, breads, pastries and cakes. However if you were hoping for a wide range of hot food, there was only scrambled egg and bacon.
Dinner: we did not have a disappointing dish, but there was rather more red meat than we would have liked and not enough fish or chicken.
The public areas were all well maintained and the reception staff wonderful.
On the 7th floor there is a rooftop bar, the Skybar. It affords wonderful views over the lake and surrounding mountains. Unfortunately, it becomes very crowded as it can be booked for functions and is open to non residents. Despite the wonderful cheerful, hard working but sometimes overstretched staff it was sometimes difficult to get a drink before dinner.
