“Helpful staff, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Two weeks spent end June - July. All round excellent. Gluten free diet was especially well catered for at breakfast and evening meal (we stayed half board). Our room on 4th floor overlooked the lake and although was "lake view" it had a small balcony. The impressive, mature trees reduced the lake view a little but the trees are magnificent. Our room/bathroom was spotlessly clean throughout our stay. The carpet looked new, the bedroom furniture looked new, the paint was virtually unmarked. Whilst no inconvenience to us, our bathroom was only fitted with a shower head - no fixed shower, some rooms have a shower. Air conditioning kept the room cool. Breakfast is typical continental and perfectly satisfactory. Note that there is no toaster and bacon and egg is available at 8 Euro extra. Alcohol prices are, we expect, typical of Italian 4 star - wine from 23 Euros a bottle, bottle of beer 7 Euros and gin and tonic 10 Euros. Great care is taken of the appearance of the garden and the swimming pool area. All staff were friendly and helpful and we thought that there was no evidence of the hotel having a tired look. Location was very good for us - it was quiet - no significant road noise and a few hundred yards walk along the very pleasant lakeside to the centre of town. Menaggio hasn't the tourist feel of Bellagio but has some good cafes and regular summer entertainment in the main piazza. Overall an excellent hotel in a very good and convenient location.

Room Tip: Fourth floor lake view have a good view and small balcony but no separate shower.

We spent a week from 30th June 2012 in this hotel, the setting was superb,very romantic.The rooms were very nice,modern and clean.The food was 1st class and the staff brilliant. It really made our stay in Como the most romantic setting which is just what we wanted for our engagement holiday to each other. Well worth a visit. Everyone has an opinion, but would suggest some of the other reviews are a tad unjust..

Excellent location with lovely views back and front. Gardens with mature trees giving shade around the swimming pool,where tea will be served on a tray with china and silver tea pot.
Paolo the manager and staff make every effort to make the holiday special, nothing is too much trouble.
The preparation, presentation , and quality of the food for the 4 course dinner are all excellent.
The public rooms are stylish, quiet, and comfortable.
We stayed here for 14 days in June 2012 and we hope to visit again.

Nicely positioned on the shore of Lake Como.Smallish Room probably was Grand but is in need of refurbishing. Bathroom just OK..Service was OK. Internet only available in the foyer. Has a good pool at the back of the hotel. Meals at the restaurant were acceptable without being exceptional. This included the breakfast. I would look around Menaggio for something a bit more interesting.

Room Tip: try to get a room with lake views.

Visited Lake Como for a week's holiday at the Hotel Victoria ,Menaggio with Titan Tours. Menaggio is a jewel and we would most definitely return but not to the hotel which was satisfactory overall but where the food was very ordinary and somewhat disappointing and not what you would associate with Titan Travel.

Room Tip: Overlooking the swimming pool

We stayed here for five nights after a two day visit to Milan. The Hotel building is very impressive and its location in Menaggio is perfect. Our room overlooked Lake Como and is worth paying extra for. The bathroom could have done with some updating, but over all the room was very comfortable and clean. We stayed half board and the evening meal was very good albeit with a limited choice. Breakfast was a cold buffet with a reasonable choice but fresh orange/grapefruit juice would have been nice rather than the sickly sweet juice out of a machine. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and I would certainly stay her again.

Room Tip: Choose a Lake view
