I took a splurge and stayed here with my 10 yr. old grandson for 2 nights. After the first night we had to move to another room, a superior room, which was much more expensive. I would have been happy to stay in the first night's room for the price but that is what they said was available on my... More

We stayed in this Hotel last month. Excellent location with a wonderful view of the Lake, right on the Lake. We enjoyed the breakfasts on the terrace overlooking the water, the food is absolutely great, the service very nice. The room we stayed in was big and very clean. Highly recommended hotel and we plan to stay there next year... More

We'd been planning an 8 day trip to Italy for my wife's birthday, splitting the time between Piedmont and Varenna. My wife did a lot of research, before choosing and booking this hotel, and was super excited about the visit. She specifically mentioned the room type that she wanted, and thought that she'd reserved it. Upon our arrival, the receptionist... More

We just returned from a wonderful 4 night stay in Hotel du Lac. Overall this is a great hotel with a wonderful view of the water, and air conditioning! The AC was a necessity for us in July. The breakfast was very good each morning with great service. Our one major complaint is the room we ended up with. We... More

Varenna is a quaint, historic little village with lots of restaurants and shops and a town square anchored by a church. The hotel sits in a strategic spot and commands a best-in-class view across the lake into Bellagio. Our terrace had to be one of the largest on the lake and we loved all times of day. It did rain...

We love this hotel and have been there three times. The staff are wonderful and the views are amazing. Classy quiet and lovely. I would highly recommend this place if you want somewhere with great views/in walking distance of everything and fantastic service.

We enjoyed our time here very much and this hotel delivered on what it promised. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, the rooms were comfortable but not large, and the views were breathtaking. Breakfasts were very good -- and you could not beat the view. The front desk staff were very helpful in finding us a boating option that... More

My wife and I recently stayed at this hotel and we loved it. It is a decent walk to the hotel from the train station but the views provide a wonderful distraction. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the staff was very friendly. Breakfast was a fantastic experience - the food was great and the view while sitting on... More

Varenna Dock is a lovely area to spend a couple of hours. Some interesting small shops, particularly il Pozzo for its array of stone necklaces, trinkets and larger stones for collectors. We finally chose to eat Lunch at the du Lac taking advantage of their small terrace adjacent to the lake, a little quieter that the other options that were... More

We checked it out for dinner but it doesn't serve food at that time so we got drinks. We were given chips, peanuts, a cookie and fresh olives with our drinks! A great way to relax in a nice, classy environment until your dinner reservations is ready.
