Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Astoria is a historic hotel with a great location on Stresa’s lakefront promenade. It’s just 100 metres from the centre too where you’ll find plenty of bars, restaurants and shops to enjoy on your holiday.

This is a four-star hotel so you can enjoy a wealth of facilities including a heated outdoor pool. We love spending the day here, surrounded by the established gardens and heading to the poolside snack bar for barbecue lunches and refreshing cocktails. The evenings are pretty special too - the restaurant serves international and local dishes that you can enjoy whilst looking out over Lake Maggiore. When it’s time to retire for the night, you’ll enjoy the comfy rooms that have a traditional style and a private balcony that looks out over the gardens or lake.

Hotel Astoria has always been a popular choice for Inghams guests and it’s been lovingly run by the same family for generations. They pride themselves on an excellent service and welcoming stay.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour by coach from Milan Malpensa airport.

Stylish Stresa is Lake Maggiore's leading resort. Take your summer holidays in Stresa this year and experience this unforgettably beautiful Italian lake resort. The idyllic Borromean Islands are only a short boat ride away and Monte Mottarone, with its superb views, is easy to reach by cable car.

The lush gardens of Villa Pallavicino and Villa Taranto are well worth a visit. Summer holidays in Stresa take you to a flower filled, fragrant place with a long, landscaped lake front promenade. This links by cable-car and lake ferry to all the resort's main hotels. Imagine crystal clear waters, sparkling blue skies and idyllic lake islands and that's a summer holiday in Stresa in a nutshell.

The old town centre has been partly pedestrianised and comes to life in the evenings as the bars and restaurants spill into the squares. Holidaymakers love summer holidays in Stresa for the smart shops that line the narrow, cobbled streets. And the music! From the end of July to September, Stresa's celebrated International Music Festival offers 25 fantastic classical music concerts.
