Excellent facilities, car parking, good breakfast choice and the Manager was very attentive and helpful
Great hotel all round. Staff were very friendly, they were very responsive to all our demands/ questions, and the pool was top class. One suggestion- Internet access in the rooms would be ideal. We are planning a return visit as our trip was very successful.
The food prepared by the hotel chef for dinner was superb, and the wait staff was excellent; we were treated like royalty. It was the ultimate in dining. The clerks at the desk were most helpful. The main floor of the hotel was beautiful and luxurious, and the location had to be the best in Menaggio! Beautiful views of Lake Como were to be had if you rented on the front side of the hotel, and if they haze ever lifted from the lake (which didn't happen the three days we were there). Perhaps one of the biggest pluses was their parking---ample and easy to get in and out of!
Though the rooms were clean, they were somewhat mediocre. They were small and dated (some stains on the carpeting and cracks in the bathroom tile). We could not find the two English-speaking channels that were said to be available (BBC and CNN), and the TV was no bigger than a computer monitor. There is no internet service in the rooms; one must go to the lobby. The breakfast buffet was tasty, but average, especially when considering the price. This all being said, we would probably stay there again because of positives listed above.
The Hotel is in an excellent position with beautiful views of the lake, away from the main road but with easy access and parking.
Great location, beautiful exterier, outdoor swimming pool, nice breakfast terrace
Rooms are nothing like 4-star hotel should look like, very clean and reasonable size but very old, especially bathroom, tiny TV with remote not working properly
Free parking, excellent location in Menaggio. The concierge booked us a table at a restaurant we knew of and called us a taxi. Hire boat service out front (I assume affiliated with the hotel) very helpful and good value.
We chose an attic room on price, it was a bit tired and the pillows were hard. I assume other rooms are more luxurious...
A grand old hotel by the lake with gorgeous views, easy access to the ferry and friendly and helpful staff. Free parking on the grounds an added plus.
An adequate continental breakfast for 10 Euro.
I was not the first time in this hotel. The first time I was there 3 years ago in summer and I liked the location only. Now in winter 2012 I choosed this hotel because the others was closed in this season. Staff is good! But room is poor and very small, the bathroom is not comfortable, breakfast is terrible! Parking is free.
incredibly kind and friendly staff ps if you dont have a car use their shuttle !
I loved the old world feeling of the hotel, in both the presentation and the attentive staff.
We really liked the position of the hotel in a quiet part of Menaggio. We had a lovely room on the fourth floor at the front of the hotel overlooking the lake. The food was excellent. We liked the swimming pool area, which was at the back of the hotel in a quiet area providing privacy with a border of trees. Sun beds and parasols as well as towels were provided free of charge. The staff were friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again if we return to Lake Como.
It is a lovely hotel but could do with some updating/refurbishment. The air conditioning in the bedroom was very noisy. For a hotel of this standard it would be good to have a dedicated concierge who could give you local information and advise on places to visit in the area etc. We were surprised to find that the internet facility in the public area was not free of charge as advertised by Booked.net. It was only free if you used your own laptop!!!???
I liked the breakfast. The location was very convenient and the view from the room was nice.
Shower facilities a bit out of date, but clean needs a revamp.
Nice location, very nice people. Clean. Hotel's lobby has some style.
Rooms are too basic. Hotel not for sound sleepers.
Perfect location, friendly helpful staff
Only 1 pillow in the room - often the case with continental hotels - suggest they provide 2 as a matter of course then guests don't have to ask for another!
