Have just returned from a week in the Excelsior Bay. Fantastic location on the lake with a ten minute pleasant walk to the town and harbour. It was wonderful to have breakfast by the lakeside and people watch! Lovely food and friendly attentive staff. Although the hotel was a little dated, it was very comfortable and was kept immaculately clean.... More

Excellent location, food and staff personnel. As a modern couple between 55 and 60 we feel that the hotel need to modernize on technology. WIFI only worked in 2 seats of the sofa of the reception. Harmonica is either not preferred music, mayby for those over 80. The way the bill was to be settled, in a chambre separe, was... More

On arrival at the hotel our bags were taken to our rooms whilst we had complimentary cocktails at the lakeside. The staff at the hotel were excellent, they had great knowledge about the food and wines available. Marcello, Lorenzo and Luigi were especially attentive to all our needs. The rooms were cleaned daily and towels changed daily also. The beds... More

We found the staff very... More

Great location, breathtaking views and quite simply a great hotel.Rooms are a little dated but very spacious, the food was great and varied in selection. Live music most nights...some better than others but all entertaining. The owners are very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.

As with the curates egg - good in parts. As everyone says, the location is fantastic and could not be bettered. Close enough to the town for a ten minute stroll, right on the lake and well back from any road noise. The views are stunning. The rooms are typically small and furnished well enough for a week's clothing to... More

The location is fantastic, right on the lakeside and only a 3-4 minute stroll from the town center. During our stay we looked at several of the other hotels and agreed that for our purposes the location of this hotel was the best! The ferry to Limone is just a few yards away and is only 9 Euros for the... More
