    New Year at Lske Maggiore

    Would highly recommend.Good & very clean.

    Massimo was the perfect host and the place was beautifully maintained and very clean. It had a good view of the lake. The breakfast was very good in fact cannot fault the place at all and would recommend it to anyone. There is a very steep hill down to the town and would not advise walking as the road is narrow and has no paths.

    Not the room expected

    On booking the choice of room was with lake view or garden view and we booked a room with a garden view. On arrival we were given a room in the basement with a window that only had a light tunnel to the pavement above. There were no garden rooms available and we were offered another room with lake view at extra cost which was in the attic but it had a very low beams which we had to wrap a towel around to avoid cracking our heads and no shower that you could stand up in because of the low roof. I would advise when booking you clarify the type of room you are getting as there is no mention of basement rooms. Whilst the owner is very pleasant and helpful we would not return to this particular accommodation

    Lovely setting

    The room we stayed in was at the top of the house with a big balcony. The two loungers for sitting in on the balcony both had broken arms.It was very difficult to stand up straight in most of the room due to the rafters. We had to walk around bent over a lot of the time so that we didn't bang our heads. It was also very hot in the room (30 deg) which made it very uncomfortable for sleeping. I did ask if it was possible to get a fan but there wasn't one. The room was very clean & two free bottles of water were provided each day. The B&B is about a 20 minute downhill walk into Stressa but a steep walk back which is normally fine if you are fairly fit & it isn't unbearable heat. Breakfast was okay but it would have been nice to have some fresh fruit. This was our second stay at this B&B. The first time we were in a room which looked onto a brick wall which was okay for the one night. I thought that a room with a balcony would be better for our second stay but unfortunately this wasn't the case. There are rooms downstairs that looked alright which perhaps would have been better.

    4/5 Good
