Reviewed 9 September 2013

After arriving from a long drive from Nice we were welcomed by a very pleasant receptionist at the Hotel Merloni which was brilliant....As other reviews state the Hotel is out of town and you will need a car to go in to the town. My partner and I tried to walk in to Menaggio one day only to turn back half way to get the car because it was perilous walking down the winding hill because the pavements just seem to end!! and also taking your life in your own hands diving out of the way of the italian drivers didn't help!! very amusing but very dangerous...The Hotel was clean and well looked after and it was wierd having a 'Key' to actually lock your room in this day and age...but take nothing away from Hotel Merloni its absolutely brilliant. We ate there both nights also and found the food and restaurant staff were A1. Would we return....Most defiantly without a doubt...

Room Tip: Just book it...You won't be disappointed..

Nice, convenient hotel about 10 minutes outside of Menaggio, in the mountains. The room was ample and clean, the pool and gardens were lovely, and breakfast was delicious. It is best reached by car, and there is plenty of onsite parking.
The only issue in our room was the shower – poor water pressure. Could be due to the hotel's location in the mountains.

Reminds me of a 70's family hotel. Which is great by the way. Mainly I am talking about the set breakfast and dinner hours, your room number on your table, which is the same tale every meal. Like a Flag Inn back home in Australia.

The room was clean and functional, although very small. Not enough room to open 2 suit cases.

The pool is great though, there is air con and tv and bar fridge in the room, all working well.

And the staff where always helpful and pleasant.

This would be great for families and/or if you have your own transport (car, motorbike). We arrived by ferry from Como and found the buses stopped around 6:30pm, and there are only 2 taxis in Menaggio. Here's a free tip: one of the two taxi drivers is Fausto and his cell number is 335-8036670. Ask him to take you to Hotel Merloni in Cardano (to be clear).

We did a few walks in the area, which were quite interesting actually. There is not many alternative eating or drinking options close by though, hence why I reckon this is more suited to families. But if you want a choice, head towards Menaggio a few hundred metres (in Cardano) to find bar and a few restaurants at least.

Having said that, there was nothing wrong with the fare at Merloni. I had a steak and Sue had veal schnitzel, both where lovely. The sides were well cooked too.

Getting to and from town you have three choices: taxi (€15), bus (~€2) or walk. The walking path is great actually, and obviously easier to walk down to Menaggio than back up. Takes less than 30 minutes down. However you probably DON'T want to walk to or from the hotel from the ferry with your luggage!

We booked this hotel because of its good reviews, and we were not disappointed. It was a great place to stay (11 nights). The hotel staff/family members were all very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean with a good working airco and wifi. The grounds were lovely and again extremely clean, no litter anywhere! The goodsized swimming pool was well maintained and a relaxing place to be after a day's touring around.

Hotel Merloni is also a good stop gap if you want to explore further down Italy, which we will do next year.

Thanks Merloni, you contributed to a wonderful holiday.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the mountain appear to be quieter although the hotel is located in a quietish area from...

The hotel is nicely situated in the mountains above Mennagio with access to a lovely pool and garden,nice and comfortable rooms with airco and safe. Receptionist was very friendly and service minded.Good food, both breakfast and in the restaurant.
It's possible to eat inside or on the terrace with a nice view on the mountains.
All and all a very cosy atmosphere.

Stayed there for 3 nights with my family, very friendly and helpful staff. It is family owned and they take great pride in the property. The entire property was immaculate, pool was great! It was my mother and father in-laws anniversary when we where there, and they treated them to a special dinner and surprise after. It was only about 2 1/2 kilometers to downtown. Definitely would stay again!

Stayed for 2 days and really enjoyed it. Good location 5 minutes drive from Menaggio (but not Menaggio prices), but also easy access to Lugano (30 minutes).
Clean simple rooms, good breakfast, very pleasant gardens and pool. The views of surrounding mountains are great.
