I was travelling with my husband and 14 year old son. Hotel du Lac is an excellent small hotel with a very good Italian coffe shop beneath it which is very popular due to the quality of the beverages/food served and excellent service. The room was very clean and spacious although the camp bed provided for my son who is 5'9 was too short and very uncomfortable.Also they only provide one very thin pillow per person which is inadequate although when more were requested this was done immediately. WiFi at this Hotel is very good and FOC and the roof terrace is a must, staff are excellent, friendly, efficient and speak English alot better than my Italian. The room safe was a bit temperamental which was worrying. Location is fantastic with a ferry port to the rest of the towns around Lake Como a 5 min walk away and i fully recommend lunch at Bellagio directly across from Menaggio,one of the ferry's 1st stops to a beautiful picturesque village with some fantastic cafes and
shops. Well worth the trip. A couple of things to note, nearly all of the restaurants in Menaggio stopped serving at 9pm even on Friday and Sat nights, as we were late arrivals and generally wanted to soak up the late night Italian atmosphere this proved impossible. Most restaurants are expensive if on the front but we ate at La Trattoria which does not have a great location being up a dark side street but does have good pasta/pizza and most of all good service, although the menu looks something from school, the food was excellent and reasonable prices. be warned though they too stop serving their full menu and only serve Pizza after 10pm. Also when we arrived we found if we had booked direct with the hotel, the breakfast would have been included,whereas through our agent it wasn't, very annoying as breakfast at Hotel Du Lac cost 10 Euro/person which was for us another 30 Euros a day. It mounts up! My advise is to read the reviews, do your homework and go and enjoy as it truely is a breath taking place.
