our stay was ok, but we were a bit dissppointed by the hotel. The room was clean at first sight, with a closer look tough, it definitely has room for improvement, especially in the bathroom. In addition, the shower was tiny, so even if you're slim, you can hardly turn naround in it. Breakfast was basic, but for italian standard not too bad. Everything in the village is reachable by foot, so that's very convenient, as well is the free parking right in front of the hotel.

Little gem

Really nice hotel, slightly back from the main lakeside. (2 minute walk to Intra ferry port) Very clean, with pleasant gardens to sit in and sunbathe etc. Room (for three) was very pleasant, large with welcome air conditioning. High quality breakfast with plenty of choice and space to sit. Highly recommended, very good value.

Arrived late and left early. Receptionist was miserable. Extractor fan noise from adjacent rooms during night.

Peaceful and relaxing.

Posted Jul 29, 2014
Pros: Quality and tranquility Outside spaces within hotel area Helpful and friendly staff Breakfast Room with balcony over looking garden
Cons: Gym equipment and parking
Location: Villa Taranto Lake Maggiore Mount Mottaronne
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.

Hotel good.Caters more more coach parties(2 in).

Posted Aug 22, 2013
Pros: Nice garden area with plenty of chairs to sit on.
Cons: Teac & coffee facilities in room.
Location: Ideal location - five minutes walk to centre of town with plenty of shops/bars/restarants. Also only short walk to harbour for ferry across lake.
Hotel good. Excellent location. Parked directly outside (no charge). Good choice buffet breakfast but had difficulty finding somewhere to sit as tables all assigned to members of coach parties. (2 in whilst we were there). Did not eat in hotel restaurant in evening as coach parties were dining in. Room had balcony with chairs & table which overlooked garden so we could sit out.

Be wary

Posted Aug 15, 2012
This was an ok hotel, but I wouldn't describe it as a hotel. It was originally a hospital, which then turned into a convent. There are a lot of older generation using this facility and a lot of students, who I guess live or stay there whilst they study in Italy. Staff are varied most are good a couple were very short with us.
