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...

My wife and I came here 9 years ago, that was Half Board, this time we did Bread and Breakfast. The views from the top floor balcony were excellent, the room very comfortable, and the the breakfast was good. We also ate in the Hotel (got 10% off), a three course meal which was very good, and also good value... More

This hotel is a typical Italian 3* of which we have stayed in many. The rooms are dated and the pillows are hard but our bed was Ok, but then we prefer a firm mattress. The rooms are cleaned and serviced daily and my hint would be that if you need an additional pillow ask the maid, couldn't be more... More

To all reviewers of this hotel: did we stay in the same place? Seriously disappointed with this place. For starters we arrived late evening and were greeted with a telling off from the owners for arriving after 10 pm. They have dozens of staff running around, but no night doorman? As customers on holidays willing to shell out 170 bucks... More

So, it cannot be denied the view is amazing. Both from the rooms and the restaurant. The swimming-pool is also very nice, no doubt with that. Given the location,this could be an amazing place. Unfortunately: - the owners are really really unwelcoming; we arrived at 11.30pm on our 1st night and the grumpy old guy told us off like little... More

The only thing harder was the pillows and we made the mistake of... More

Prior to our arrival in Lake Como we took a train from Milan airport and then transferred to a direct train that drop us off right on Lake Como. It was very easy. Once we arrived at the train station we were able to find the ferry station just down the street that traveled to the various towns around Lake... More

This hotel has a great location and the restaurant has lovely views. Sadly, the food did not match the views. We both had steak, but it came with gravy on top of it and tasted terrible. My boyfriend also had pasta with basil sauce, which was mediocre. We had ordered a meal which came with dessert, but it was just... More
