Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Royal is a lovely, family-run hotel where you’ll feel at home straight away. It’s nice and peaceful too as it’s slightly away from the centre of Stresa, which you can walk to in about 20 minutes. We love the gardens at this hotel and chilling out surrounded by colourful flowers. When it gets hot, the pool is right there to cool off in. The dining room looks out over the gardens so you can enjoy with a view every night. There’s a good mix of local and international dishes on the menu and you get three courses as part of the half board package. The bar’s a nice hangout after dinner and you’ll even find some of the owners own paintings on the wall. The hotel’s been done up in a traditional style with cosy rooms that have parquet floors. Each one has a private balcony so you’ll have some outside space.

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

Stresa

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.
