This hotel is in a lovely location, right on the edge of the lake. We booked a quad room and ended up with 2 adjoining twin rooms which was nice as we got 2 bathrooms!! The town is quite small but there are a few restaurants within walking distance however we hired a car and found we liked the next... More

The location of the Hotel is fantastic. Now comes the BUT. The hotel is very very old and must have never been renovated since 1960'. We had lunch at the restaurant which was a huge mistake. The food was bad and we waited ages each time we have ordered something. Yes, the hotel has seen better days.

This old hotel reminded me of faulty towers, it is in need of renovation but on the up side the location is perfect, close to the beautiful islands that are on the lake and very close to stressa which is a lovely little town with great restaurants, the hotel villa carlotta is large but dated, the room we had was...

One of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. It's on a busy road, hasn't been redecorated for decades and isn't even cheap. We stayed here whilst visiting the lakes but in hindsight it would have been much better to stay in the nearby town - Stresa - which has much more charm, restaurants and you are near the ferry...

Belgirate is around 1.5 hrs drive from Malpensa Airport. This town around the lake Maggiore is kind of quaint, peaceful and beautiful. Villa Carlotta is one of the mid range hotel with a very good location. Rooms are very basic and not all the rooms have good view. Also the waterpipe inside the walls keep making weird noise - which... More

This was my third visit to Villa Carlotta over 6 years for a conference hosted here. The maitre d has been there since my first visit along with many staff. The food is fantastic. When you cater en masse for such a large group (74 at every meal) you would expect some variation, but every meal so much variety, so... More

This hotel is geared up for economy coach tours. Breakfast was a disgrace - the weakest orange juice I have ever tasted, no fruit, no toast no croissants. The room had a lake view but electric sockets not working a mouldy hydro bath with no tap just a shower. The carpet was worn and discoloured. Restaurant staff were fine but... More

We had 4 nights at this hotel. It is advertised as 4 star. It is more a tired 3 star. It needs renovating and upgrading. The breakfast is provided but It's not great. The evening restaurant is better. The dining room staff are friendly and helpful. There is a great pool which is open 9am - 6pm.

I stayed at the Hotel Villa Carlotta for two nights as a part of a pre-arranged tour. The hotel itself is situated on Lake Maggiore and offers magnificent views.
