Guiseppe (the owner) is a perfect host. Nothing is too much trouble and the breakfast is superb. The hotel is spotlessly clean. We had 3 out of our 4 days there marred by rain but we still enjoyed our stay thanks to Guiseppe's advice and assistance. This is our favourite place in Europe. If any criticism is given it is...

We can only echo previous good reviews - this is a great place to stay. We enjoyed two nights at La Fontana in Sept 2008 (wish it had been longer) at the start of a three week tour of northern Italy. The hotel location is great, overlooking the lake and an easy stroll into the town; our room was clean...

There's not much I can really add to all the previous positive reviews of this hotel. The owner went out of his way to make us feel at home and was a mine of information on local sights, train timetables to Milan, getting to the airport etc. Beautiful view of the lake from our room, wonderful breakfast and a very...

We're retired and stayed here for a couple of nights at the start of a tour of the lakes. We had a room with a balcony where we could sit out and admire the surrounding view, including the lake. Breakfast was good. The host could not have been more welcoming or attentive, and is a mine of local information. The...

This is a wonderful place to stay, a family run hotel. The owner Guiseppe Andreis, cares about whether you are comfortable, whether you enjoy breakfast and wants you to have a great stay. He is attentive and is able to offer lots of information and advice. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable, breakfast is everything you could wish for...

Spent 2 nights here. Like others we found the welcome from Signor Andreis outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble and he was very helpful in guiding us towards things to do and places to eat. The hotel is just on the edge of Stresa so it is a 15-minute walk to the centre along the attractive promenade - pleasant in...

We had a great stay at Hotel La Fontana, in Stresa Italy last June ,2008. The location is great along the lakeshore. The staff especially Signor Giuseppi was very friendly and helpful. The hotel rate was very reasonable and of great value. The breakfast included in the hotel rate was very good. We would love to go back to Lago...

Il signor Giuseppe, the owner of La Fontana, is everything previously written of him. He is the perfect host, ever caring and attentive and a source of all local information. (You will not need the tourist information office – besides they are nothing like so friendly). My wife and I stayed for a week in early August and found this...

Spent four nights at La Fontana. Would agree with other reviews. The owner of the hotel, Andreis, is a very charming host who gets the balance just right. The hotel is clean, efficiently run and in a good location. The rooms are of a reasonable size and a good breakfast is served between 7.30 and 10.00. If you are looking...

We first saw the hotel on tripadvisor and went to their site directly. It proved to be everything the other reviews said - well positioned ; comfortable rooms ; reasonably priced ; the owner made you feel very welcome, serving you breakfast personally! Would we go again? - Indeed!
