We stayed here for four nights and had a very pleasant stay. The beds in the room were comfortable, bathrooms clean, and nice grounds with some animals. The proprietor, Guiseppe, was very friendly and helpful. He always made you feel like a special guest. The breakfast was very nice and everything freshly made.

What a wonderful warm welcome we received arriving here. Like stepping back in time. Room had high ceiling and a grand balcony. Floors very creaky that added some charm. Bathroom a bit frustrating as it was very narrow but had the things you needed. Breakfast was a delicious Italian spread. Good location. Free parking, beautiful grounds.

Hotel Fontana was the ideal base for running the LMHM, within a 10 minute walk from restaurants, bars and the ferry port. The owner welcomed us with open arms, provided a fantastic breakfast, complete with his own home baking, and rewarded our running efforts with a cold beer! The hotel looks out over beautiful Lake Maggiore with views of Isola...

Myself and two friends stayed at this hotel in March and would definitely recommend it. The welcome from the owner is lovely and genuine and he meets and greets you for breakfast every morning. Breakfast is continental style with loads of choice and plenty of it. We ran the Stressa half marathon and on returning to the hotel the owner...

Staying here has been great. The owner greets you every morning and wishes you a good morning with a handshake. The place at present is decorated for Easter. The breakfast is substantial and served in a dining room. The location is at the end of the strip of larger hotels which mean your walk home every evening is beautiful. The...

The landlord was very friendly and welcoming. Delicious selection of handmade cakes for breakfast. Room tidy and clear, classic Italian old hotel style. Good free WiFi and car park. Recommended if you would like to spend some time by the Lago Maggiore, the beautiful isles are right in front of Stresa.

Great little hotel just steps away from the lakefront. Clean and the owners are very hospitable. Was here in March, weather wasn't great, but the grounds appear to be very well kept. If you are looking for something more affordable and still very close to the lake and scenery.

We only stayed for one night but enjoyed staying here because of the warm company of the family running the place. The living room area in front of the reception is convivial with a warm fire place. The room was alright, the decor a bit old-style, but the shower had hot water and the bed comfotable. The breakfast was very...

We only stayed one night in Stresa but thoroughly enjoyed the warm, personal hospitality we received at Hotel Fontana. The hotel is in a great spot with gorgeous terraces with lake views, within an easy walk to the centre of town. We unfortunately chose to visit on a Tuesday during the holidays so were unable to eat out as everything...

Stayed here for a week in May. Good breakfast with plenty of choice. It took a while to work out the best time for cooking your own soft boiled eggs but about six minutes was right. 10-15 minute walk along the coast to the centre so a nice stroll. The comfortable room was a decent size with big bathroom. The...
