The hotel is fine, lovely views and every room has a patio overlooking the lake. The restaurant is very pricey indeed. The is a hotel bar where you can get light meals in the evening, but it isn't open every day and unless the restaurant is also open, the only choice is pizza, though a very good pizza. Reception could be more helpful but will deal with specific queries and problems when asked. There is a lift down to the lower road, so don't hike up the main road, walk along the lakeside then into the carpark and take the lift, then the short set of steps to the entrance. Lecco is lovely. A short walk across the bridge brings you into the town. It's quiet compared to other resorts on the lakeside, but really lovely. It's a great base for exploring the area, 45 minutes by train to Milan and Bergamo. There is a train which goes along the lakeside through the villages to the north of the lake. Varenna is very pretty with lakeside walks. A boat will take you to Bellagio, from where you can travel on further to Menaggio or Varenna or Como. There is a bus to Como which takes you through some beautiful scenery but takes about an hour. A bus winds its way through the hillside to the cable car station, which will transport you to Piani d'Erna and some stunning views and trails.
