Reception staff are all friendly and exceptionally helpful. The location is superb and the views from the breakfast restaurant of Bellagio and the lake are to die for! Best views on Como. Breakfast buffet very good. We had a room facing the piazza and it was a standard size (a little on the cosy side) but was a bit dark,... More

Delighted to have booked this hotel, it was in a perfect location in Varenna. Clean, safe & quiet except for the bells from the church, but we learned to accept that! Rooms were very comfortable and decorated beautifully. One small grip is that there was no iron so bring a travel one. Breakfast was fabulous, lots of choice. A special... More

We have recently returned from a 10 night stay at Royal Victoria Hotel and have had the best holiday ever. We stayed in a Lake view room with balcony on a half-board basis. From the moment we arrived and opened the shutters to the most beautiful view we were instantly relaxed. The hotel is beautiful throughout. The staff were all... More

What an amazing hotel, from the staff to the rooms to the fascinating views of the lake area everything was just fantastic. If you get a lake view room you'll be blown away when you open the doors to your balcony and see what lay in front of you. Breakfast is included in the cost of the room which is... More

I spent two nights here at this wonderful hotel. The piazza outside was great for people watching as Varenna seems to have become THE place to be. The first night we ate in the restaurant and I had the best pasta dish I have ever eaten. Beautiful view of the lake. The room was very nice and our room overlooked... More

We found the Royal Victoria whilst exploring Varenna on Lake Como, what a find it proved to be. So much so that we spent a leisurely 4 hours enjoying lunch on the terrace, with the odd trip to the private beach to dip our toes in Lake Como. The service was first class, there when you needed it, otherwise completely... More

After a long flight we didn't want a fancy meal and were recommended the Royal Victoria. The pizzas are Napoli style, with thin crusts, and were excellent. The wine they recommended was a perfect accompaniment. I would definitely return.

Rooms were very nice. They are spacious and if you have a lake view, the view is stunning. The staff at the front desk are wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble. They have no hesitation in recommending dinner at the hotel or a local restaurant. Pool and ground sensational and view hard to beat.

We spent a week here in early September. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a lake view room with balcony, which was very well appointed with plenty of space and a large bathroom with double sinks and a very powerful shower.
