After reading many conflicting reviews of this hotel, my husband and I decided that as the holiday wasn't costing a fortune (as I believe some people paid) we would book the hotel and keep an open mind. We did upgrade our room to a deluxe lake view with balcony and was not disappointed. The room was serviced everyday, there was... More

I booked my stay at this hotel 3 months ahead. I would like to stay there for the weekend (2 nights) and asked for lake view (and was paying more for that) After exchanging many emails with the reception, 1 day before I arrived I wrote saying I had to change my flight and would arrive late in the evening...

Bellagio is arguably one of the prettiest towns in Northern Italy : perched on Lake Como with the sun all day that's make it a very busy and thus pricey destination. Check out the ferries and Granite di Cadenabbia : day trip to Bellagio and stay in a wide range of hotels. The Britannia is a value for money 3... More

First thing to remember is this hotel is used by Shearings & will nearly fill it with their mostly 55 to 85 aged clientele. When you arrive because 1 to 3 coaches arrive at the same time there will be a queue at reception. We were lucky with our room(No45) as we were given a room on the top floor... More

Just come back. Staff helpful, rooms clean, food gets bit samie but is hot and plentiful, ice cream lovely varieties even better with the cakes. Was worried after reading other reviews but came home tanned and well fed and plenty of alcohol too. Floating pool was great bonus.

Paid a lot to be disappointed at this hotel experience! Full of coach parties (paying a lot less!) Jostling for food, drinks, etc. Facilities very shabby and room was given only a token clean each day. Stayed over a week but our bedding was never changed. Food the most disappointing aspect; mass produced "meat and two veg" was the order... More

Stayed in this Hotel on a Shearings Holiday for eight nights in September 2014. The Hotel is very large and busy. There appeared to be a lot of coach companies using this hotel and people constantly booking in and out, the reception seemed to be always full of cases. The food was very good and staff excellent, however the buffet... More

Nice hotel facing the lake near the famous Villa Carlotta . Most guests are British. The rooms are clean but some are small. The breakfast selection could be improved. Good ratio between price and quality!

We returned a week ago from our first Shearings holiday. We were picked up at 7am from our pick up point by a grand tourer coach. We made two further pick ups and were well on our way to meet our coach to travel to Italy. Little did we know we would then have to wait two hours for the... More
