Myself and two other girls stayed here for two nights in July 2013 and had a lovely time. We arrived quite late on a Monday, and the staff were waiting for us, just finishing up with the dinner rush. One man working there (wish I could remember his name!) carried all our luggage up the many stairs to our room. During the duration of our stay, staff treated us like longtime friends, making jokes and asking us about our day, etc. Another woman working there gave us some great suggestions about what to see and do in Cernobbio and the surrounding area (we saw pretty much all of Cernobbio in about one hour!) and we took her advice and had such a great time exploring Lago di Como. This small town is a great base for visiting the lake, and is much cheaper than other big towns (e.g., Bellagio). The hotel itself is about a 5-10 minute walk downhill to the ferry dock. When we had to depart, the hotel arranged a taxi driver to pick us up and drive us to the train station in Como - very helpful!
The only downside of this hotel is the lack of air conditioning (or at least our room didn't have it in July 2013). We slept with the window wide open all night, which did let in a cool breeze, but also let in some pesky mosquitos.
Regardless, I would stay in this lovely town and hotel again. Like I said, it makes a great base for visiting the lake and is of great value.
