My family was traveling to Lago Maggiore and had booked rooms at the large resort hotel across the street (for close to $300/night.) We found Locanda Nelia for 75 Euros/night and our room was large than theirs and very attractive (albeit we didn't have the lake view!) We were in the room called Terra, it was quiet, clean, and lovely.... More

Baveno is a pretty and quiet base from which to explore the western lakes. The public ferry terminal is just yards away from Locanda Nelia. Our apartment gave us everything we needed; the breakfast service was first rate; and the adjacent restaurant gave us a first-rate fish supper.

Baveno isn't the easiest place to get to via public transport but the effort is worth it, especially if you stay at Locanda Nelia.(We caught a train to Stresa and then taxi to Baveno) It is a wonderful B&B located very close to the ferry terminal and above the family run restaurant Posta. Barbara provides a warm welcome and is... More

This is a small hotel/B&B tucked away in the main square of Baveno on Lake Maggiore. What I LOVED about it was the themed rooms. I chose Metallo, as it looked a bit "different" to normal hotel rooms. And it was. It had grey/silver/chrome fittings and black and white sheets & doona cover. And after a couple of days, our... More

We stayed on this well located, comfortable and very clean B&B on our visit to Lago Maggiore. Our room was called Metallo and faced the Town Hall building. It was a perfect option, especially because the nights were quiet, the ferry boat terminal is only a two minutes away and the train station is also quite close and has no... More

Wonderful, clean, new rooms. The restaurant is very good and staff so nice. Barbara, the owner, will make you feel welcome and right at home. Location is excellent, right in the centre square and the lake is 1 minute away on foot. Thank you Barbara! <3

We arrived straight from a long haul flight from Australia to a warm welcome from Barbara and a delicious late lunch at their restaurant, La Posta. Our lovely room for 3 nights, Metallo, overlooks the piazza, with views to the lake. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The public car park is up behind the B&B but it's possible to... More

The tip to ignore your SatNav if arriving by car is indeed a good one, just head for the ferry terminal instead! We stayed just one night here but would have been happy to stay on. Barbara was most friendly and helpful, the room was very pleasantly decorated and the location is great.

The four of us stayed in 2 double rooms in Locanda Nelia for 3 nights in early October 2013. It would have been a great B&B on its own, but what makes it really exceptional is the service.

Great attention to detail in our room which was spacious and comfortable. Our host was excellent and helpful. Close to beach and ferry. If you are driving and using a GPS be careful not to attempt to drive right to the hotel - the street is restricted to local residents and very narrow. We suggest parking on the main street... More
