Have just spent another fabulous week at this great hotel. I have always found the staff friendly and efficient. I have read awful reports of bad service, awful rooms,and terrible dining facilities. At no time have iI experienced this. The dining room is busy and the self service can be a little chaotic but it is only the customers causing... More

my wife and I just returned from this hotel, we arrived at about 10:00 in the morning and were told our rooms wouldn't be ready until about 11:30 / 12:00, but we approached reception anyway, and checked in immediately we were offered a room upgrade for 40 euro's that we took straight away despite not knowing what we were upgrading...

Traveled with Leger Holidays to this Fantastic location. Britannia Excelsior is a very good 3 star Hotel,with a very reasonable selection of food for Breakfast, lunch and Dinner but don`t forget you are in Italy and they are laying on meals for all Nationalities. It is buffet style but the choice changes daily, a general thumbs up. Our room was... More

Just returned from a week staying at this wonderful hotel on the edge on lake Como in Cadenabbia. We went on a last minute coach trip with Shearings. This hotel deserves more than it's 3* rating. The interior is superb, classical Italian. Great and varied selection of food, with a large and beautiful dining room. Upgrade (40euro) to front facing... More

I spent 5 nights at this hotel, the room was clean and nice but I had a problem with the soap and shower gel: I only got it once, then I had to request them again by calling the reception. Food was fine, but prepare to experiment almost the same dishes every day, at least for breakfast. The only thing... More

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
