Really lovely hotel, very slightly away from the main road with it's giant big conference hotels (though only a couple of minutes along a shady path). Great, generous, breakfast buffet each morning on the terrace looking out over the lake. Very clean, functional rooms. The shower cubicle is tiny, we're not big people and we almost broke the door off. Apart from that it was great.

Room Tip: Definitely pay the extra and get the lake-view room and make sure you set the alarm and open the shu...

We were fortunate to get a cancellation at the Hotel at the end of July. It was our first time to the region and to this Hotel, we had a lovely time here for 4 days it is in a very quiet location right on the lake with it's own small walled beach, and the secure parking beside the hotel is an added bonus. We were hoping for a family room with a balcony, but unfortunately they were all gone. Nevertheless the room had a nice side view out towards the Isolas. The room was large enough with a small adjacent room for our young son. The bathroom is adequate, the only drawback being there is a shower over the bath but no shower curtain and I was a bit concerned by the large window only being covered by a thin white curtain, which I am sure was not private at night-time!
It was our son's birthday when we were here and he was treated to a wonderful chocolate cake with candles by Claudia, and then an incredibly generous gift left on his bed when we returned in the evening. We were truly very touched by their thoughtfulness and kindness. Our son also forgot one of his toys, and the management posted this back to us! The food here is good value - especially the set dinner for the evening. We discovered that many of the guests were visiting for their 5th consecutive year, and after our third day, we could see why. The calm ambience of the place lets you enjoy your holiday. I would not say this is a place for very young families because the lake is too deep for paddling, we were also a bit disappointed that the water of Lago Maggiore is not clear compared to some of the Swiss lakes. But we would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Rigoli in July 2011 and were extremely happy with our stay.
The hotel sits literally on the lakeside providing wonderful views of the lake and the mountains. It is also only a short (5 minute) walk to the centre of Baveno for catching boats to Stresa, the Borromean islands and the other wonderful places to see on Lake Maggiore - e.g. taking the Lago Maggiore Express which takes you by ferry to Locarno, then tram/train up to Domodossola, with a fast train back to Baveno - all in a day!
Our room was a very good size, clean, with LCD flat screen tv and free WI-FI access - a minor point was that the shower/bath was a little small for standing without over-balancing! Our balcony afforded wonderful views of the lake - again, only note is that you find yourselves sitting literally next to your neigbours as there is no screening between balconies - but this is being picky.
Breakfast was excellent - always friendly service and the offer of your eggs of choice - can recommend the scrambled (uova strapazzate!).
All in all - we enjoyed a wonderful 4 nights and would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Would recommend the double room with Lake View - views are worth the extra

We have stayed here several times before, usually for a few nights in the spring or the fall; this was the first time in the middle of the summer. Each time we visit, we notice that the owners have made some improvements to the rooms, which are spacious and comfortable. The hotel's location right on the lake is a real asset, and on a nice day (we had 2 out of 3 this time), eating breakfast on the terrace to the sound of the waters of Lago Maggiore lapping on the shore is a treat, as is watching the sun set over the Isola Bella and Isola dei Pescatori from our room's balcony. Service is friendly and efficient, and the breakfast buffet is very good indeed (excellent espresso, cappuccino etc. available on request at no extra charge). The hotel offers free WiFi, which is a real plus, as well as adequate outdoor parking for all of the guests. All in all, the hotel offers excellent value.

Room Tip: Lake view rooms are really worthwhile.
