“"ABSOLUTLEY FANTASTIC HOTEL AND OWNERS"”
Reviewed October 7, 2011

We are the couple that travelled with Jackie and Tony in late August to several European destinations, including Verese, Italy. What a wonderful experience we had meeting Oliver (the owner) and his wife at Villa Hotel al Borducan. The food was excellent and the hotel was immaculate. A perfect romantic getaway. The views from the Restaurant balcony were breathtaking and we would not hesitate to stay here in the future. Tim and Marion, Toronto, Ontario Canada.

Oliver was a gracious host. he speaks excellent English for the guests. The restaurant is outstanding and the balcony seating has an outstanding view. Each room is unique. The area in which ithe hotel is located is quaint and right out of a story book with its cobble stones and narrow streets. Oliver serves a speciality liquor which we just had to bring home
Parking is down the street, but well worth it.
We highly recommend this place.
we were two couples travelling and had a wonderful time

Amazing views, beautiful building, lovely food, well worth the trip up the hill. The owners are very friendly and enthusiastic- wish we could have stayed longer.

We were a group of six on our first visit to Italy and stayed here for three days at the start of our four week 'grand tour'. We all rated it as the best overall accomodation of all the hotels we stayed in. Great rooms with panoramic views, good selection of continental breakfast with freshly baked croissants. Pasquale at front of house attending to all our requests in a charming and professional manner and Silvia in the kitchen creating some great local dishes and delicious cakes. We found the local village of Sacro Monte a serene place with the walk along the Holy Path with the fourteen chapels a highlight. Close proximity to Milan, Lake Maggiore and Lake Como makes it an ideal location for touring this region. As my wife wrote in the visitors' book " a touch of heaven on earth".

My wife and i stayed here on the last leg of our honeymoon driving around Italy. I had stayed at the sister hotel (il Colonne) a few years ago, but i wanted to try the Borducan! It is perched on the edge of Sacro Monte, at the foothills of the alps over looking the plains of Milan, and from the hotel, the views are spectacular to say the least, especially in the morning having breakfast on the terrace, or at night, enjoying a night cap! The hotel has a young couple running it who are probably the best and most enthusiastic hosts you'll ever meet, and the food they create is wonderful - in particular the 'bistecca al Borducan' which is made with the 'Elixir di Borducan' a wonderful liquor made to the receipe of the former owner of the hotel. Our room was gorgeous, and was on 2 floors - the front door and amazing bathroom, dressing area, and teraace on the ground, and then the bed on a mezzanine above which is wonderful for a romantic stay! all in all a truly beautiful hotel!
