We stayed here with a Shearings tour. The bedroom was never cleaned all week, the bed was made and the bin emptied only, the corridor was dirty when we arrived and was vacuumed only once all week. The bar area is in the basement and is like sitting in a bus station. The food was really poor, the same every... More

Went to Lake Como with Leger Holidays on a single travellers holiday. What an amazing experience. The hotel was lovely and I had a double room all to myself with views overlooking the Lake. The food was ok nothing special but edible. Beautiful scenery and would go back again

We went about a year ago so this review may be a bit outdated. We booked via a Groupon deal, 4 nights all inclusive for a great price so weren't expecting anything amazing. The hotel is a long and quite confusing journey from Milan airport including a train and bus ride as we didn't book transfers but Italian people are... More
