This was our second holiday at the Grand Hotel Britannia Excelsior and it certainly lived up to our high expectations. Any location on Lake Como is stunningly beautiful, but what sets the family-run Grand Hotel apart and in a league of its own, is the warm welcome of the staff, the attention to detail and the high standard of cleanliness...

We stayed here for 6 nights in April 2014 and had a lovely holiday. This fabulous hotel is in a wonderful position facing the lake and has great views looking across to Bellagio and other pretty towns along the lakeside.(It is a 3 star hotel but was better than some 4 star hotels we have stayed in.) The hotel is... More

The position of this hotel is lovely - beautiful views, close to the ferry across to Bellagio. We had a lovely room on the fifth floor (500) with views across the lake and also to the side looking up the mountains. It is an all inclusive hotel so you get all meals and drinks included. The drinks were OK -... More

Stayed 6 nights in March on an all inclusive basis. Prebooked a room with balcony and lake view which was fantastic. The room was set back from the road so traffic wasn't a problem and the views across the lake to Bellagio were stunning. The room had three beds, a fridge and plenty of space and the bathroom had a... More

Well, what can I say, first time with Shearings, overnight stay on coach just bearable but well worth it for the hotel and it's magnificnt views over Lake Como. We had upgraded upon arriving at the hotel for a front room view with a balcony, well worth the 40 euro's. All the staff were excellent apart from the cleaner's could... More

Good in parts, in other words. We stayed 4 nights in this hotel on a recent all-inclusive holiday with Leger. It's a strange hotel, in some ways. Rather grand and ornate in the lobby, dining room and public areas, but the rooms and upstairs corridors have seen better days. Our room was huge with a small balcony overlooking the lake,... More

Travelled to this hotel with Leger Holidays from North London. Stayed overnight in Reims on the way out and back. Rather basic accommodation in the Ibis Hotel, but not too much to complain about given the cost of this holiday. Coach was comfortable and the drivers/guides really good. All the travel went to plan. Hotel is very good. Friendly staff... More

Stayed 6 nights All Inclusive in March 2014. The weather was excellent - so made all the difference. 27C the first day and very warm all week. Only rained as we were leaving for return home! I pointed out water leak from roof in the lobby area - hope they have fixed it! For the price we paid - we... More

A truly remarkable week, travelled 8-16 March. The weather for the time of year could not have been better, never a cloud in the sky all week. We went with Shearings with overnight good hotel stays in France there and back (Nancy and Reims). We had already upgraded to a room with balcony and lake view when booking, but I... More

Had a great time. We went with Shearings on the overnight stop coach for 9 days. Paid for an upgrade on booking in, great room overlooking the lake, well worth the extra 40 euros. Staff were very good in particular the bar staff who all worked very hard and were very pleasant. Everything went well and will go with Shearings... More
