This hotel is in a beautiful setting on Lake Como, across the lake from the Versace mansion and a quick boat ride up the lake to George's Villa.
Our room was stunning with huge dining, living and kitchen area as well as separate bathroom and Bedroom. Every window overlooking the stunning lake.
The spa was amazing, one of the best I have ever been in.
The setting was romantic and luxurious.
The hotel went out of their way to accommodate us. However there was a bit of a breakdown in communication with housekeeping. The kitchen had some state of the art appliances in it, however there was not a cup, kettle or piece of cutlery to be found. Upon speaking to reception, some kitchen items were brought to our room. However, when housekeeping came to do their turn down service that evening the items were removed. I requested they were returned, but again the following day this were removed. This carried on all week, despite my best efforts to try to hold on to the kettle so I could make some tea when I wanted.
Breakfast was a full buffet affair with delicious fresh berries, smoked salmon and every type of pastry imaginable, however the cooked 'english' style breakfast items did not look good and when I requested scrambled eggs without milk, we were presented with a bill for €20. We were not advised of this when ordering.
The location of this hotel, apart from being on the lake is no good unless you have a car or a very big wallet to pay €50 to get to the next village (1.5km away) or (€140) to go into Como centre.
If you are thinking of dining at the hotel, the food is ok, but costing on average of €250 per night (1 drink each), we decided to dine out at other more reasonably priced restaurants.
We were quoted a cost of around €850 for the day +fuel (40hp boat) for boat hire. We searched on line and found a local boat hire that charged €280 for the day and was able to pick us up from the hotel Jetty. It turned out, it was the same boat hire company the hotel uses! So huge mark up here.
Overall the stay was great, but we did feel we were being ripped off at times by the hotel charges. However in hindsight, I think this is the way on Lake Como and with the amount of Ferrari's in the carpark and the Russians around the pool, I guess nobody else really noticed the big price tag.
