We had a wonderful weekend at the Hotel Belvedere. We had the top flood with 180 degree views of the Lake, and it was definitely worth a little extra money for a room with lake views. The room, balcony, and views made our weekend. The staff were incredibly kind and professional. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was just perfect, and the dinner was great. We would come back and stay here anytime we needed a little break from normal life!

Room Tip: spend the extra money for lake views

Fantastic hotel, worth the boat ride to get to the island. The staff were so friendly and helpful. We had a room at the top, which was very spacious, and had an aromatherapy shower! The only downside was no elevator, but the staff carried the cases up and down for us. Great restaurant too. Certainly recommended.

Room Tip: it seemed that all the rooms were different, but stairs only! No elevator.

We're spending two weeks in France and Italy - been to Paris and Nice (previously the other places mentioned above) and this is the best do far - from our exceptional room and meals so far, this is definitely a place we'll return to. The small island where the hotel is located has several other small hotels/restaurants/shops - all very old/quaint buildings/alleyways etc. with beautiful views of the surrounding lake and mountains. The staff has been wonderful - and compared to everywhere else we've traveled in Europe this may be the best bargain of all. Stay tuned

Room Tip: Our room 303 is is on the top floor and outstanding - but it appears that all the rooms have terrific views

We had heard a lot about the northern Italian lakes and our first visit to one of them was here at Hotel Belvedere on Isola dei Pescatore in Lake Maggiore. Wow, did we love the hotel, the isle, and the lake.

Staying on Isola dei Pescatore was perfect for us. Tourists come here in swarms for lunch, but few spend the night. So starting at about 3:00 the island starts to slow down and becomes very quaint. One night a local church band marched through the streets followed by parishioners—and then played popular songs for a little while in the church square. The next night there were some hotly contested games of Boci ball on the local Boci court. Each night we found a different wonderful restaurant on the isle to have dinner at—each with their own beautiful view back towards a different part of the main shore and different mountain backdrops.

Staying on Isola dei Pescatore requires some ferry trips. But those are easily navigated and the ferry company is impressively professional (when you arrive, go to the main ferry terminal and buy a ticket at the ticket counter. Official sounding people will intercept you on your way there, and they will sell you a ticket for the smaller local boats. Nothing wrong with those, but the big ferries run more frequently, and earlier and later in the day, and they are cheaper.) A great ferry schedule can be found at:

Our room, 202, was simple and seemed, like the hotel, newly renovated. It had 3 small balconies looking out over the water. We loved it. One of the prettiest views we have had anywhere. Lots of windows to open for night breezes with the lake lapping at the shore under your hotel.

We also had dinner here at the Belvedere one night which we enjoyed. They featured a lot of local seafood, and we found the lasagna to be unexpectedly delicious. And the setting on the water is of course memorable.

We were here 3 nights and that wasn’t long enough. We found much to do on Lake Maggiore: the unexpectedly beautiful Isola Bella; and we recommend the Chestnut route hike out of Stressa. All this in one of the most beautiful settings we could imagine. If visiting Lake Maggiore we highly recommend the Belvedere on little Isola dei Pescatore.

On arrival at the Hotel we were given an upgrade to a lovely room with a 180 degrees view on the lake from our windows. In 1921 Charles and Yvonne (de Gaulle) dined here during their honeymoon, so I hope that they enjoyed their meal as much as us.
We had a table reserved specially for guests of the hotel again with a lovely view on the lake. Our meal was excellent and we were offered a light Italian white wine before the meal.and lemoncello after the meal.The lady chose a local red half bottle wine which was excellent and not overpriced. I paid 12 euros.

Room Tip: Room 102 on the first floor.
