First of all I will list the good things about this lovely hotel, then the negatives, nothing BAD just negatives. The good points are location, right outside the bust stop from Lake Como central train station, the bust stops just 5 yards from the front door, going back is another thing, the bust stop is about a 100 yard walk,...

We stayed at this hotel for 7 days in September with a Thomsons "Lakes and Mountains" package holiday. The plus points are it's excellent location, right on the edge of Lake Como and close to all of the town's amenities. Unfortunately those are, in my opinion its only good points. The proprietor and his wife failed to smile throughout our... More

Agree with previous reviews. Amazing views. Great location. Very easy to get around. Food mainly ok, loved all of the starters, great if you like pasta and rice etc. Main meals just ok. and only ever served with half a boiled potato and frozen or tinned veg! I ended up having 2 starters, which was great. Very very bright restaurant... More

We had the perfect location with the picture perfect view overlooking Lake Como. Laying on our bed we could delight in the light and colour changes over Bellagio and Varenna. Our room was quiet with the only sounds being the lapping of the water. Heaven. It seems to have been recently refurbished and delightful. The bathroom was charming with a... More

A tale of two extremes. There's very good and there's very bad. THE GOOD .... The location must be one of the best on the lake as, unusually for many villages on the Italian lakes it has no road in front of the hotel. The lake facing rooms have wonderful views across Lake Como to Varenna, Bellagio and the mountains... More

Menaggio is a quiet place yet the hotel is very noisy. The walls must be paper thin. We stayed here for four nights and found it very difficult to sleep. We put the air conditioning on purely to try to drown the constant noise but it did nothing to dampen the sound of people talking, moving furniture, shouting....and this went... More

Don't expect a fantastic welcome from the owners because you won't get one! Very grumpy lady owner, doesn't smile much either. We made a game out of who could get her to crack a smile! the rest of the staff bar one are wonderful and lovely. The room was basic but clean, beds a little hard and bathroom definitely needs...

The hotel itself is in a good location and offers great views of the lake however the welcome given by the owners leaves much to be desired. They are unfriendly and create a very cold atmosphere almost like they resent you being in their hotel. The general staff are better but if opting for breakfast be warned that it is... More

We had read many reviews of this hotel-some not very complimentary -before we went and decided that some people look for different things in a holiday... We really wanted a lakeside view from our room and restaurant and we were definitely not disappointed!! This is the only hotel in Menaggio that directly overlooks the lake and even though the 4...

A great location but unfortunately owned by the wrong people. It seems to me that the owners are willing to take your booking and money but not willing to make you feel welcome, update their hotel or offer a decent breakfast The rooms were VERY basic, the furniture was chipped tired and dated (I haven’t seen a TV like the...
