This hotel is located in the town square, has a pool, private beach and private dock. The renovated rooms are light and airy. The breakfast is generous. The owner manager is friendly. Would come back in a heart beat.

We stayed here for five nights. Had a room overlooking the lake and the views were fantastic. It is right in the centre of Varenna. Good pool with plenty of sunbeds when we needed them. Did not think so much of the Gourmet restaurant but there are plenty of places to eat within walking distance. Staff very friendly and helpful except we did ask if there was any music on while we were in Varenna and guided towards the concerts advertised but not told about the opera outside the church the next night! Fortunately, although we could not get a seat we had wine in the hotel's bistro restaurant on the square so were able to see and hear everything.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room overlooking the lake as the views are fabulous.

This is a lovely hotel that has recently been updated. It is situated on a quiet little square in the center of Varenna. We didn't request a lake view since the hotel has such wonderful areas to sit outside and enjoy the views that we rarely were in our room. Our room overlooked the church in the center of town and we enjoyed the ambiance and view. Although street side we were not bothered by any noise at night and found the town very peaceful. The pool and breakfast were highlights of the hotel.

We arrived on a dazzling day, and the Royal Victoria was equally dazzling. We had made our reservations far enough in advance that our request for a room with a balcony and a water view was honored. In fact, we were treated with the largest room in the hotel (one of the junior suites) which was on the recently redecorated third floor. It was fantastic. The room was huge, and was very comfortable for three adults. The bathroom was equally spacious. But the highlight of the room was the balcony. We looked out over the pool and out to the Lake. Although we spent little time in our room, when we were there, we naturally gravitated to the balcony and spent much of our time there. We ate dinner in the hotel dining room on our first night and it was surprisingly excellent. The risotto, in particular, was really wonderful. The breakfasts (in the same room) were also very good. Another wonderful feature of the Royal Victoria is the pool and terrace area that looks out over the lake. We commandeered a prime table for several hours on one of our afternoons and had a wonderful time basking in the sun, looking out over the lake and being served a variety of cool drinks. I highly recommend the Royal Victoria Hotel.

Room Tip: The top floor (third floor) of the hotel was renovated in early 2013. The rooms on that floor are particularly well appointed. The junior suites (there are several) are very spacious and worth the few extra dollars. Finally, be sure to ask for a room (i) with a view of the lake and (ii) with a balcony.

My husband and I just visited Varena, we loved it! Royal Victoria has some gorgeous lake views and has a great location in Varena. We will definitely return to the Royal Victoria. The staff was very nice. We loved having breakfast on the terrace over looking the garden and lake. The pool was nice and relaxing.
