we were sent here because the grand britannia was overbooked, thank goodness.
firstly let me put some things straight about the bad reviews given-
the staff speak Italian? well what a surprise eh, considering the hotel is in Italy. a phrase book or some sort of effort would help.
the breakfast was basic, croissants, rolls, home made yogurt, cereal and meat and cheese, but it was fresh and replenished as required, you can have coffee from the espresso machine if you ask. it is on a busy road but its double glazed and when the windows are closed you cant hear the traffic and at night its quiet.
the walk to menaggio is about 15-20 minutes and the path does run out but only for about 50 yards and is hardly the fault of the hotel.
the rooms are lovely and clean and pleasantly furnished. the hotel staff are hard working and if you ask for something they will get you it.
the food is lovely, the menu is varied and i loved all the food they served us, the pizzas are from a wood burning oven and are delicious.
there is a wee train that stops outside the hotel and runs from mennagio to leno about a dozen times a day, so you dont have to walk.
the hotel isnt for those who want to booze and party, it closes about 11pm, its all about the view, the lake,the food and the wine
