“Fresh white peach bellinis overlooking the lake - bliss!”
Reviewed 13 August 2009

A lovely hotel, worth paying extra for the lake view, with extremely helpful staff. Near lots of restaurants. Varenna is a beautiful spot and a lot less touristy than Bellagio which can be easily visited by ferry. Villa Carlotta was a treasure worth visiting too. We went to Varenna by train from Milan - only about an hours journey time and no more than Euros10.

I just came ack from the lovely Hotel Du Lac! After escaping a totally awful stay at the Hotel Olivedo we had booked the first awailable hotel we could find - luckyly the Du Lac. Nice nd clean Room, wonderful terrace with a fantastic view, a nice platform for bathing in the lake, great bathroom, the sweetest and most helpfull staff, nice terasse bar, and an incredible breakfast! I really hope to come back next year! This hotel is simply perfect!

This hotel was a perfect combination of great accommdations in a beautiful setting, with friendly, helpful staff. We stayed here at the tail end of our 17 day trip to Italy, and as soon as we arrived wondered why we hadn't planned to stay longer. We were traveling with our son & daughter in law, and 2 teenage sons, and had 3 rooms on the 2nd floor - all with full lake views and small balconies. The beds were super comfortable, rooms were very clean and spacious and the breakfasts were great, served on the terrace overlooking the lake! They served the best cheeses, brie, gorgonzola, pecorino, etc. with ham and salumi and also had cakes and chocolate croissants! We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and the town of Varenna on Lake Como.

I moved to this hotel after checking out prematurely from hotel Eremo Gaudio in the same town. What a contrast. Hotel Du Lac has well decorated, comfy, clean rooms. The girl on the front desk at night is english and couldn't be more helpful. Recommended.

I loved this hotel. My husband and I were on our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect. Location was great, Varenna is great! The view from our room was amazing. The breakfast was better than others I had in the other 4 places we visited. We definitely felt it was one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in in Europe. I highly recommend a sailing trip, and the walk to fuimelatte. We only wished we stayed more than 3 nights because it was so incredibly pretty and relaxing.

A very friendly and welcoming hotel. The staff could not have been more helpful. Room and facilities were perfect. Fantastic views of the lake from the terrace for evening drinks and breakfast. Would highly recomment this hotel for anybody looking for accommodation on the shores of Lake Como.

At every turn we were amazed by the gracious service of this wonderful hotel. Family-run, you can see the pride they take in making guests feel welcomed and comfortable. The view from the terrace or the rooms is fantastic and we had a very hard time leaving. We will go back to enjoy their accommodations, breakfast and service at some point again. They are the only hotel this is literally on the water so a visit to their bar is a must if you are staying elsewhere. Varenna is a wonderful town, much less crowded than the larger cities on Lake Como and worth a visit at the very least.
