#3 of 3 hotels in Ranco
Belvedere was originally a tavern when it opened its doors back in 1865. Now it's a stylish hotel, with stunning views over the banks of Lake Maggiore in the peaceful setting of Ranco, a tiny gem of a town on the Lombard side of the lake. The Belvedere is run by the Merzagora family who take great care to provide a friendly service and actively ensure that guests enjoy the perfect stay. At the Belvedere you will find all the comforts and services you expect from a bike hotel and also the exclusive opportunity to master the secrets and techniques of fishing on the lake. And, If you are here on business, we have a fully-equipped convention room that can accommodate up to 40 people. The location offers the ideal starting point for your trips on Lake Maggiore and for exploring the magnificent surrounding countryside, from the Alps and the verdant hills steeped in history and culture to the characteristic lakeside villages and famous, picturesque Borromean islands. The Belvedere is also a celebrated restaurant. Our dishes have a local flavour and we try to offer our guests a ‘taste of the lakes’ complemented by seasonal fare. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming in the winter, while dining on the terrace with panoramic views over the lake guarantees a unique, absolutely magical experience in the summer. We'll be happy to have you as our guests, to make you love Lake Maggiore as we do.

A beautiful home away from home. Our second stay in the wonderful Hotel Belvedere and again we loved every minute of it. The stunning location, the attentive staff and the fantastic home-made food (the grandmother makes the the delicious ravioli by hand!) served with spectacular views of the Lago - what more could one want. We look forward to our next stay!

I am really disappointed with a lunch I have just had at the Hotel Belvedere in Ranco. I have been several times over the last 14 years and quality has always been high. I used to go with a friend as there contro fillet was absolutely amazing. This time however I ordered the contro fillet and it was super tough, very chewy. The defensive owner was quite reluctant but I told him it was one of my favourite dishes as the quality was amazing but this was not the same standard.. He finally offered another choice. He recommended the pork. Perhaps I should of not ordered meat again after this bad experience but he advised me on the pork that was super tender. It was awful. Full of fat and gristle. I ate the spinach that was really lovely. I left the whole plate. No one came to ask me about the quality of the food. They actually disappeared . The starter was great however! . Overall the choice and quality of meat was not up to standard especially for what you pay. As a customer you are not made to feel special and it feels as if they really not interested and a tourist would walk in the next day and take you place. Regardless whether you enjoyed your meal or not.

This restaurant is located in the Hotel Belvedere in Ranco, Italy which overlooks beautiful Lake Maggiore in the northern lake district of Italy. The hotel is perhaps 50 yards--with unobstructed views--from the local marina and ferry boat landing. The hotel has been in the same family for 150 years. Great views throughout. We had several excellent breakfasts and one excellent dinner during our several days staying. We will definitely return for the fun location and excellent food and ambiance.

This hotel was very nice, clean and cozy. It was better than on the photos. The Maggiore lake view from our room and from the restaurant terrace was amazing. Service level and breakfast were very good. What we didn't liked was that ordinary glasses were allowed in the pool area instead of plastic glasses and also, there was an unannounced party in the restaurant on Saturday with very loud music and guest until late at night.

We hired MTB bikes for a week of cycling in the area. The hotel provided excellent help with the bikes and with GPS-based tours which proved to be a brilliant solution. Since this area is densly populated with a lot of villages and small towns its not obvious where you can find a trail to follow. With the GPS we were guided into small forrests, through towns, along backroads, up on hills, along rivers and lakes, and through fields on narrow paths that we would otherwise not have found. Daily discussions with the bike guide provided a new path for the following day with a suitable length and elevation. Perfect if you like to get off the paved roads and get around in the beautiful Italian landscape.
