    The staff was friendly, beautiful room and great location, staff in the dining room was very friendly and seemed really happy to be working together.

    The breakfast was full of canned foods. Should have better breakfasts, loads of british tourists so the breakfast was english style. Fry-ups.

    the swimming pool

    1) not getting the room for 3 that we booked, but a 2 bedroom with an extra bed instead over looking the car park, we were offered a choice of 2 rooms a complaint that the 1st bedroom given to us was so ugly (be prepared that the rooms did not look like the ones on the website, very tacky looking hotel) 2) lack of cleanness in public areas, corridors, etc... 3) not enough staff 4) poor/cheap quality of the breakfast 5) too many people been drunk in the evening

    Good position

    Too many people - everywhere was busy and full. Felt like cattle. Corridors etc didn't feel clean not least because the dirty laundry was left in the corridors for most of the day!

    Hi This hotel was an absolute disgrace, we had booked this hotel as our honeymoon and we travelled all the way from Ireland, we arrived at the hotel late and they informed us there was no record of my booking, even though I had a reference number and they took my cc details, the whole of lake Como was booked out and we had to drive through the night to try and find somewhere, we thought we would have to sleep in our car, not a nice way to start married life. We finally ended up back at the airport and found a hotel at 4am, it was all very upsetting. I rang the hotel the following morning for an explanation and was told it was an error by staff and our room was infact there! This was not acceptable , I told them we would not be returning as we were hours away and our whole experience was ruined, when I returned home I checked my account and they had charged me for two nights, we had booked for 3, this is an outrage and I rang to complain, they would not give me the manager name and will not ans any of my calls or emails. I have contacted my cc company to investigate, stay away from this hotel, as you are dealing with a bunch of amateurs

    Fabulous

    A good size room, although no view as it was in the interior section of the hotel. Close to the ferry dock so it was easy to take the ferry to other villages on the lake. Good deal for the buffet dinner. Pool was about 100 yards away.

    It's the first time for many years that I've stayed in a hotel whose main business is clearly package holidays so it was a bit more hectic than I'm used to. Since the pool was not directly connected to the hotel it was also open to the public for a fee but there was nobody checking to see who came in. There is not much to do in the area of the hotel.

    Good location, easy to get to various other towns from the hotel using the Ferry.

    This hotel caters for the elderly, and does so very well. They should make this fact quite clear in their advertising. I would recommend this hotel to other travellers providing they were over the age of sixty five.

    Location

    Some staff rude. Laundry service expensive, and returned with out being ironed. Iron not availabe in room, had to go to basement laundry to iron.Tourist trap

    Fabulous

    It is well located just across lake to Bellagio and down road to Tremezzo to catch ferries.

    Dinner buffet meal is pitched to English people and was not of a good standard due to mass production and presentation. Location and standard of hotel should provided al Carte menu to cater for other than British tourists.

    The location was vey good, just off the ferry port. Room was nice.

    I'm not the person to usually complain but this hotel had some good points and alot of bad poitnts. 1. like a nursing home, full of old british and welsh bus tours. 2. breakfast was terrible. juice was watered down.only ever had the rolls. 3. showergel/shampoos never replenished as part of room service. 4. smell in left area is of toilets. not nice. spent as little time as possible in hotel.

    A wonderful location, beautiful views across the lake to the snow capped mountains beyond and across the lake to Bellagio which we overlooked at breakfast every morning. A convenient location. Local buses stop outside as does the land train to Lenno and Menagio. The ferry to Bellagio is a 5 minute walk away where connecting ferries can be caught to other parts of Lake Como. The hotel also provides a private ferry shuttle service to Bellagio for a reasonable sum. Lots of restaurants of differing standards nearby or a short pleasant walk. The staff are very helpful even though English is not their first language made every effort. Our room had a lake view with a juliet balcony, very spacious and cleaned thoroughly every day. Lots of seating areas inside and on the large sun terrace. The lido is across the road with sun beds and an additional sun terrace also very clean and modern. Would love to go back.
