We stayed on a top floor room which had a lovely view of the lake, and also a second balcony overlooking the road. Others have mentioned the road noise; yes there is some noise but really we didn't find it disruptive. Have a look at the road on street view and you will see that although it is the 'main' lakeside road it isn't that busy by UK standards. Close the double glazed windows and you'll hardly hear it. We slept with them open with no problem. Obviously a lake view room is preferable, but the view up the mountain from roadside rooms is far from shabby. The hotel itself is absolutely lovely. It is very clean and well kept, the staff were all, without exception, friendly and helpful. The pool is just the right size to cool down, and the continental breakfast buffet was ample and very tasty. They were happy to arrange our transfer to Malpensa airport by bus for us (12 euros each) with a few days notice. They do ask for any additional costs (drinks, evening meals etc) to be paid for in cash rather than card at the end of your stay, but in fairness they do tell you this in the hotel information booklet. The location is a 20 / 30 minute enjoyable stroll along the lakeside into Stresa town. Overall we had a really relaxing and enjoyable stay here, it really is one of the nicest, friendliest hotels we've every stayed in, and have no hesitation in recommending it.

We booked only a few days before arrival and were delighted to find our every need was catered for. we did not make use of the spa facilities in a short five days, but thought they looked very good.
The courtesy car was essential as there is a lack of pavement between the hotel and Stresa in places.
The view was to die for and the food extraordinarily good. Our room was a little small; with such a large bed it was difficult to navigate around each other on occasion, but the care and attention to detail was indeed 5-star.
Fantastic few days spent at La Palma after a week's scout camp in Switzerland. Loved the elegant surroundings and attention from the staff which was understated but professional. Dinner was delicious and breakfasts were relaxing and very varied with a huge choice on the buffet. Great weather and ferry trips topped off a memorable break
Regal style hotel. Fantastic location in the heart of Stresa and near the train station and ferry terminal. Staff friendly but hotel would benefit with a concierge. The spa area in the basement is gorgeous and very relaxing. We spent a couple of hours there everyday before going out for dinner. The rooms are very nicely decorated and I believe they all have spa baths which is a nice touch. On a negative the beds were a bit hard for us and really missed not having tea/ coffee in the room. I would definitely recommend this hotel and we are hoping to return very soon!!
