I reserved this hotel based upon reviews that said that every room had a view of the lake and that there was a lift. My mistake was not to read ALL of the reviews and to believe the ones I did read. Upon our arrival we were shown to a room in the attic that only had a view if...

I really don't want to share this hotel with anyone else in case when I go back it is booked out or over expensive. This hotel had exactly the atmosphere I seek from Northern Italy or Switzerland. Views of snow capped mountains and full lake from my lovely corner room. A comfortable bed, plenty of room space, clean and nice...

My husband and I had such a lovely stay here. I didn't know what to expect - the reviews were back and forth, and ultimately we chose this place for the location and view. It was better than expected. I orginally requested #22 room based off of other reviews, but it was taken. The owner's daughter apologized profusely (which was...

Stayed here for four nights in April. Location is perfect The hotel reminds me of Cafe Renee in 'Allo 'Allo. The staff are very friendly and cheerful, the service is excellent we were on the top floor and there is no lift which is not a problem for us but others may find it too much.

This is a charming, family run hotel full of lovely antiques and right by the ferry port in Varenna. Our room had a dual aspect looking over the lake and north of the lake, and we couldn't get enough of the view. The location was excellent; a short walk down to the cafes and bars around the corner. Service was...

We watched a couple of travel YouTubes of Varenna and this place looked interesting so we booked for our trip to here. It was better than imagined. Comfy room, lovely decor and first class staff who attended our every need

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights as part of a 4 week holiday. It was recommended by friends who had stayed here the previous year. This is wonderful hotel, full of charm and character run by a local family - I believe that they are the 3rd generation owning and running the hotel. We had a room...

We had a room with lake view, it was great. Strongly recomend arriving from Bellagio by ferry. The approach to Varenna from the ferry at dusk when lights were reflecting on the lake, and church bells could be heard set an incredible ambience that carried through the stay.
