Giuseppe and his family went out of their way to help us get situated after a long flight into Milan; he was able to get us into a room early so we could take a nap, which was much appreciated. Our room was on the top floor overlooking Maggiore, so our view was great but ymmv. The hotel itself is clean albeit a bit tired. It looks to be a family operation where they fix one thing just as another breaks. Far from being a problem, the constant activity gives the place a charm that I don't think you would find at one of the monstrosities just down the road. The downstairs lounge/breakfast area is quaint and I was sorry to not have time to just relax there with a book. The kids especially enjoyed the rooster and the animals to be found in various corners of the property, though they did have to watch out for dog bombs when they ran around the lawn. The breakfast was good, kind of a typical Italian breakfast with a few meats and cheeses thrown in (I highly recommend the Toma Piedmont). Overall, the rooms weren't the most glamorous I've stayed in, the shower was a stoop-sit-down affair, and the beds were the kind of thin/hard mattress arrangement one often finds in small European hotels. In spite of that, the host's helpfulness, the relaxed atmosphere, and the quaintness bump up its rating quite a bit in my estimation. It was my first time in Stresa but I plan to return, and when I do I will stay at the Fontana.

Very friendly and helpful staff, and Guiseppe was excaxtly how a hotelmanager of a small hotel should be. The breakfast was ok, and I especially liked the concept of selfservice eggboiling :) Perhaps the eggs are from their own garden? There's a lot of animals in the garden, and Guiseppe told me they often took care of stray dogs, and some of them was often in the reception area. Nice and animalfriendly, which I liked. The beds are a bit hard, as they often are in Italy. Plus for Free parking & free internet, but the signal on 3.floor where we lived was a bit weak.

Our room had a lovely terrace that looked over the lake and the lovely gardens in front of the hotel. This is the same lovely view as available at the 4 star hotels next door, at 25% of the cost! The host, Giuseppe, is prompt, polite and genteel. There is some street noise as the hotel is n the main promenade, but in part we heard this as we left our terrace doors open to feel the cool breeze. I heartily recommend La Fontana.
