We stayed at the Metropole for a week in May. We chose this particular hotel because of its location (right on the lake) and were not disappointed - the views from our room were magnificent. Although the room itself was quite small, it was more than adequate and had a little balcony where you could sit in the afternoon/early evening sunshine enjoying the scenery and watching the ferries coming and going. The bathroom seemed to have been newly refurbished and had an excellent shower, washbasin, toilet and bidet.
We found all the staff to be very helpful and friendly. Francesco (the head waiter) couldn’t do enough for us and was always smiling and laughing. Bar staff and reception staff were also very amenable and pleasant.
The buffet breakfasts were pretty good serving a selection of meats, cheeses, cereal, fruit along with rolls/croissants and toast. At dinner there was always a choice but, sadly, the food was very average. The potatoes were sometimes undercooked, the fish/ meat course was often overcooked and the Risotta Milanese one evening was inedible. The rice was hard! Fancy not being able to cook a decent Risotta Milanese in Italy!!
Overall though, we enjoyed our stay. If only the cuisine could be improved somewhat, it would be excellent value for money.
