“Totally Miserable Awful Place Stay Well Away 4 Your Own Sake”
Reviewed 28 November 2012

Used by cheap and nasty UK based coach holiday companies and dont you know it?
Awful place probably was great once in its heyday, buy oh wow what a place it has turned into now.
If you go there with any expectations be warned you will be disappointed.
The rooms were falling apart and awful broken tiles, blister paint everywhere.
The hall ways stank of smoking!!
The food is the worst you will eat but when youre starving its all you are going to get.
The bar area is the nice bit but then you will pay for your drinks.
The beds are awful.
You wont get any sleep or afterwards with the memories of the place.
It is nowhere near Lake Como literally miles away so dont be fooled.
Not worth more than £50 a night half board. Very sad indeed.

Room Tip: Stay away is the simple answer

We stayed at this hotel while on a Shearings coach holiday. The rooms are very small, but clean & our tv worked fine. Twin beds, hanging space, one table & chair - no room for bedside tables, no other furniture & no space to put cases. It is like a very basic 2* hotel. The bathroom was functional, but the shower was tiny & the doors did not close properly so leaked on the floor. Air conditioning was not working, and we had a lot of traffic noise through the open window. Our 3 course set dinner was not bad and included wine which was nice. Breakfast was adequate. It is several miles from Como town in the outskirts with nothing in the vicinity. Access for coaches is very difficult.

Only stayed one night, thank goodness. Our room had mould on the walls,and had a very poor outlook. It was not over clean either.
The food was dreadful and the place a disaster. Service non-existant. Poor location. Can't think of a single good thing to say about it. Staff indifferent. Never again. My advice would be definitely don't stay here.

Room Tip: Stay away.

Took a tour holiday with LEGER (Silver Service), stayed two nights, one night going out and one night on the return. Rooms OK but a bit dated, poor service in the bar. Dinner was rubbish and breakfast was poor. The BIG problem was that this hotel is used by a company that transports Italian school children on holiday. On both nights the hotel was half full with very noisey teenagers who ran around banging and crashing untill the early hours and then after only a couple of hours sleep they were up again and it sounded like world war three had started. Stay at this hotel at your peril.

Room Tip: Stay at another hotel - any other hotel will be better than this.

Was very hesitant about this hotel having read very negative reviews abou it.However we were pleasantly suprised on arrival as ther were no lifts or stairs to negotiate before we arrived at our room. The eveing meal was good with free wine and water. Waiters very attentive.Room was clean and roomy. Whilst the hotel was situated adjacent to a main road there was no issue with noise.As this was an overnight stay and we arrived late evening we were not concerned that the hotel was not close to the lake area. Breakfast was good with waiter service for drinks.All in all a good nights stay.

Room Tip: Most rooms face main road but not an isssue

We staid for one night on our way back from Sorrento. Not the best looking hotel from the outside but once inside we were quite suprised. Having read the other reviews we were concerned about staying here. Evening meal was good. Breakfast was continental with a nice choice. Our room was not on the large side but was ok for an overnight stay.
