The hotel offered a very tranquil setting about 10 minutes walk from the shore of Lake Maggiore. The cloisters area was a lovely area for simply sitting reading. The hotel has a small chapel off the cloisters which was in use for a small service on Sunday morning.
The staff were incredibly helpful, the room clean, comfortable and a good size. The breakfast buffet was well stocked with the usual continental fare ranging from cereal to boiled eggs, ham and cheese.
We ate evening meal in the restaurant one evening but were close enough to the town centre to try different local restaurants each evening including O'Conors Irish Pup which had a great atmosphere.
The gym wasn't particulary good with equipment being domestic type equipment as per a home gym and parking adjacent to the hotel was limited but there were plenty of free parking locations nearby.
Overall we had a great stay and are happy to recommend Il Chiostro to anyone looking for a tranquil place to stay in the Verbania area.
My wife and I stayed 3 nights B & B in the annexe block which is about 50 metres behind the main hotel. This was a bonus as the main hotel building is on the main coast road and is affected by traffic noise, particularly when it is hot and want to have the windows open at night. The annexe block room was very quiet, very spacious with a double and a single bed and a pleasant bathroom. The staff were all particularly friendly and helpful. Breakfast could be taken indoors or on the front terrace. It was buffet style with a perfectly acceptable selection of cold food and they kept the tables well stocked. We also ate dinner at the hotel on all 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed each meal. We considered this hotel to be good value for money and would happily recommend it.
