We were there in August 2008 and report total satisfaction. The owner is around all the time and his objective is to ensure you have a perfect stay. The location is fine. Half way between the old town with all its restaurants and the jetty that takes you to the two nearby islands with their restaurants. There is a little...

We arrived in Stresa tired and bedraggled after a long, hot day travelling by train from the French Riviera. As we staggered up the beautifully landscaped courtyard path toward the hotel lobby, we were met outside by the manager who took my heavy bag and escorted us all immediately to our room where he deposited us with a view out...

La Fontana was the first hotel my wife and I stayed at in Italy, after having travelled from Christchurch to Malpensa via Singapore. We had pre-booked five nights accommodation for the period 29 May to 3rd June and all our emails were responded to promptly. The hotel reminded us of an older-style country house with comfortable seating in the lounge...

We stayed at the Hotel Fontana based on the reviews on this site. We were not disappointed! It is not the fanciest hotel - the charm of the hotel is that it is extremely well run. Our adjoining rooms were very clean, the hotel staff were very professional, and the breakfast was nicely done (served on lovely real china, a...

We had a fantastic 2 night stay whilst driving round the lakes. Good size rooms and we had a large balcony. Perhaps not the most modern in style and decor, but everything you needed was available and worked well. The owner was fantastic. From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave he will do anything for you -...

We had a fabulous one week stay at this lovely hotel in Stresa. A short walk to the city center, nice grounds, large and clean rooms (ours with a balcony and a view of the lake), lovely breakfast, and the excellent services of the owner Senor Guiseppe made our stay perfect.

We had a wonderful stay in Hotel La Fontana in may 2009. The owner is very friendly and the nice waitress Franca suggested good restaurants and nice places to go. The rooms are clean and cots for small children are available. The breakfast is very good with gorgeous cakes. The hotel has a private parking and we were allowed to...

Stayed 5 nights and enjoyed it very much. All booking e-mails were replied to promptly, and at our request Guiseppe organised a taxi from Bergamo airport at a good rate, though not cheap. We were greeted on arrival and the hospitality was second to none. Our room ( No. 33 ) was spotless, and had a large balcony with a...

We spent a week at the Hotel Fontana in April and enjoyed a very relaxing and interesting holiday. The hotel owner was as friendly as reported by others and gave us everything we hoped for at a reasonable price including a view of the lake (which seems to vary from room to room because of mature trees in the garden)....
