“Lovely Lake-Side Hotel”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

We recently spent a lovely week at the Hotel Villa Marie whilst in Tremezzo for a family wedding. I had reduced mobility so had a ground-floor room in the new annexe, with a walk-in shower. The room was spotlessly clean as too was the bathroom, and looked out on the immaculately kept garden and swimming pool. The only thing missing was tea/coffee making facilities! Breakfast was buffet style and served on the terrace or dining room and bar snacks were available during the day and evening. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful, even giving us a lift along to the wedding on the Saturday! With views of the lake to die for and reasonable rates what more could you ask for!

Room Tip: There have been many comments about the lake view rooms experiencing traffic noise from the road but...

Visited this hotel for just one night with our children about 23 years ago and decided to go back for longer. Booked the red room as we remembered the lovely painted ceiling and wooden floors. Had a lovely stay and pool and underground parking are a very welcome addition. The road was a lot busier than we remembered. The previous week we had stayed in a lovely three star lakeside hotel with balcony on lake maggiore and paid around 40 euros per night less than the Villa Marie so were a little disppointed with a few things. Mainly the very small thin bath towels, and lack of toiletries, shower cap facial tissues etc. The room was a good size but had the smallest tv we have ever seen and didfficult to see. Know you dont go on holiday to watch tv all the time and perhaps we are being "picky" but did expect a little more for what we paid. Breakfast was adequate but have had better and worse. staff and propriotors very helpful and work very hard. Took their advice on where to go for boat rental and had a fabulous day on a self drive boat. We got it from Ossuccio www.hiringaboat.com and email is hdueonda@libero.it. Mino was very helpful and professional. They do not take credit cards however. Excellent position for exploring.

This delightful hotel has a stunning position overlooking Lake Como within walking distance of Tremezzo. We had a beautiful room with a lake view and balcony with stunning views. The room was attractively decorated and very spacious and had a superb en-suite which was refitted a few months ago. The owners and staff were brilliant and we enjoyed a tasty breakfast on the terrace. We would definitely stay here again, the only downside was there was quite a bit of noise from the adjacent road.

We stayed in the Hotel Villa Marie five years ago on our honeymoon. We vowed to return every five years which is exactly what we did ! My previous review of this place still stands and is really a delightful place to stay. The owners are friendly and helpful.

We were even more delighted to note that we had been given the same room we had before but this time it had been updated. The bathroom had been completely refitted and air conditioning added to the room otherwise everything was as before.

This is a good base to explore Villa Carlotta (we did this last time) and Villa del Balbianello (we decided to visit this time). It took about half an hour to walk to Lenno and then another 20 minutes onto the villa. You can walk from Tremezzo to Lenno by the road but be warned in several places there are no pavements so care is needed as the road is very busy.

I cannot fault this hotel as a lovely place to stay, it is a place that seems to make you relax. Both afternoons we spent by the pool with such lovely views who could ask for more !

Compared to a lot of the other hotels in Tremezzo it offers great value for money and is only a ten minite stroll to the restaurants and shops in the town.

The hotel is gorgeous and our room (#5) was beautifully decorated with ornate ceiling frescoes, and was very spacious with incredible views of Lago di Como. The bathroom was large and had a spa bath. The owners were very helpful and provided information on local restaurants and attractions. A very romantic place.

Who: My wife and I (mid 30s)
When: May 9-12, 2013
Why "Very Good" Rating:

-Charming hotel; it's like stepping back in time as you climb the main marble staircase (no elevator; take note if you are carrying refrigerator size suitcases like we were). They also ask you to leave your key at the front desk (yes an actual key, no card here) each time you leave; but they won't yell at you if you forget, like I did :)
-Friendly Family Staff; so pleasant, accommodating and hard working
-Magnificent Room (see photos); stayed in the Red Room Suite, highly recommended. No balcony but four large windows (2 with full view of Lake; other 2 partial views)
-Outdoor Terrace; very nice place to have breakfast or a Aperol Spritz
-Delicious fruit filled croissants and various coffee options (espresso, latte, etc)
-Free wifi (although a bit spotty in our room; but worked great in lobby and outside terrace)
-Short walk (on some cobblestone and tight sidewalks) from Tremezzo port. Exit boat ramp and turn LEFT. Also, very short walk to other restaurants and a beautiful park on the lake.
-Last but not least, excellent VALUE for such a great property with amazing views

Ways Rating Could Have Improved:
-Although croissants & coffe were delicious; the overall breakfast spread was so-so. There are no hot entrees so be prepared if you come looking for that. Mainly European spread, meats, cheeses, boiled eggs and fruits.
-Hotel has beautiful balcony located on top of hotel. It is accessible via the steps but there is really nothing there. Some chairs or a table would make that a beautiful place to enjoy a glass of wine.
-Boosting WiFi signal for the Red Room Suite. But not a big deal, vacation should be a time to unplug anyway
-Just a suggestion here, but a shuttle service from the port would be a nice touch; as the walk with suitcases is a bit challenging.

One particular example of their commitment to guests took place on a not exactly pool weather day. I had decided to take advantage of some sun by the pool as did another couple and I noticed the owner quickly, placing cushions on all the chairs making it look more inviting. Nice touch. Now this may happen at other hotels but it was really something to see the owner himself carrying out the task.

Overall, VERY pleasant stay. It was so nice to take a break away from our normal habit of staying in the chain hotels (SPGs mainly) and stay somewhere where the owners have full investment in the property. They have worked very hard and are proud to have taken this property to its current 3-Star rating. I can see more stars in their future.

Tremezzo, is a great central location on Lake Como and I would highly recommend staying at Hotel Villa Marie if you are choosing this town.

Villa Marie is a lovely warm family run hotel in a stunning location with picture postcard views. It is positioned just a short walk from the ferries which service all the other pretty towns. Also it is a nice walk to the 2 best Villas in Como which are Villa Carlotta and Villa del Balbianello. We stayed in the Annexe which was very spacious and comfortable and would happily book here again. The only negative is the free breakfast which lacks fresh fruit salad and toast and there is no cooked breakfast. Good value for money.
