Little has changed here since our last visit a couple of years ago and all the better for that in the sense that the earlier superlatives still hold true, if our 6 night break in May was anything to go by.Excellent service all round - some acheivement as far as reception is concerned - given that the front desk was often besieged by guests requiring help with myriad minor queries. Pristine housekeeping standards always in evidence. The situation of the hotel ,provided that you are modestly fit,is unbeatable in Bellagio as it lies just outside the centre of the village but within easy (uphill) walking distance of the busy lake promenade.
Our so called comfort room with patio overlooking the eastern arm of the lake was just that having recently been heavily refurbished in a contemporary style. These rooms are ideal if you like almost immediate access to the immaculately maintained pool and sun platform as any traipsing around post(and pre) swim is avoided and the rooms are quite sizeable by Italian standards.Very good quality flat panel TV with BBC World as the only English language channel unfortunately. Not that you'll be watching it much look you!
Stayed on half board terms this time around.Glad that we did as the overall food quality at dinner was very good veering towards towards excellent, although on the first night ( a Wednesday) the cusine was way below par perhaps because they had a very large tour party in the dining room or their usual chef may have had a night off or both.Fortunately the usual high standards resumed from Thursday onwards.Impeccable service in the restaurant throughout. Good selection at the largely help yourself breakfast.Another admittedly minor item that has, unfortunately in this instance,not changed was the very poor quality of the coffee. The tea was better and perfectly drinkable if nothing to write home about.Comprehensive Italian only wine list specialising in Valtellina and Piedmont.Prices have firmed up quite a bit but remain relatively good value by local standards.All the staff are helpful and go out of their way to ensure maximum guest comfort even when they are extremely busy which is much of the time! On a related point the fast ferry prices from Como have risen sharply since 2012 so the cost of a direct taxi transfer from Milan Linate to Bellagio is now more realistic.
