This hotel probably best fits the description of a 'Marmite' hotel, there are some elements that are excellent and others that are dire. I spent five days here in September and experienced both ends of the spectrum. The Highs + The location, views across the lake to Bellagio and mountains beyond are truly spectacular + Easy level walk to the... More

My husband & I stayed at this Hotel for 5 nights, 29/12/2014 – 03/01/2015, all inclusive. It was the first time we had been away for New Year and we are so glad we stayed at this Hotel on Lake Como. We enjoyed the whole of our stay there, especially, New Year’s Eve. Everything was so well organised. There was... More

Stayed at the Britannia Excelsior for Christmas with Shearings Coach Travel. What a lovely hotel facing the Lake, my room was at the front with fantastic views, room was kept clean and tidy with fresh towels every day. The staff were friendly and welcoming, service especially over our 4 hour xmas meal was exceptional. All the staff worked so hard... More

I also stayed at the Britannia Excelsior for Christmas. What a wonderful holiday! Stunning room with lake view. The hotel staff were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. Lunch on Christmas Day was truly amazing - a four course delight! Made so special by the staff and my fellow travellers! Enjoyed the experience so much I have booked again.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights all inclusive and we cannot fault the hotel. All staff were helpful and the cleanliness of our room was faultless. The hotel could do with slight decor refurbishment as it would lift the rooms up a little. Food was nice but being vegetarian there's only so many times one can eat... More

Will try to be as open, fair and honest as I can. Went to this hotel as part of a group for the New Year Festivities. The first problem was getting checked in. It was slow and ponderous and reception seemed more interested in getting people to pay for an upgraded room (60 Euros for four nights) and lunch that... More

We spent 5 nights at this delightful, full of character hotel over Christmas. We travelled with Legers, who once again were excellent. The hotel was a reminder of the long ago 'Grand Tour' era, beautiful chandeliers and ornate decorations. Our check in was quick and efficient with very pleasant reception staff. We had not bothered to upgrade our room but... More

We have spent Christmas at this hotel twice now and would recommend it to anyone. Christmas day was made extra special - 4 hopur lunch, yummy. Wonderful hosts, very good staff. Accommodation really good, lovely room and views. We travelled with Shearings holidays and stayed on an all inclusive basis. Excellent value made better by the hosts
