Reviewed 20 April 2014

We had a wonderful stay. Lovely little hotel overlooking lake como with views of the lake over to Belaggio and only a 10 minute walk into centre of Menaggio. Mr Colombo the owner made our stay special with help and advice delivered with great humour, even putting the welsh flag up for us, and all the staff are more than helpful. Food and wine were excellent. I dont think you can do better than this blend of location, price and quality on lake como.

Lovely hotel set up in the Menaggio Hills with beautiful views of the lake.
Very much a family feel, friendly staff, clean rooms, and a excellent restaurant. The Gardens and pool area are top class as well.Would definitely stay here again!

Had a wonderful visit to Menaggio and Hotel Royal, we had a lovely room and balcony in main hotel overlooking swimming pool and Lake Como.Hotel/rooms very clean and all staff members during the day or in the evening were very helpfull and friendly.
Mr Colombo the owner was good fun and made our evening meals a `lovely event` with a true passion for his food and wine which was excellent quality,good value and first class service,we were more than happy to eat in the restaurant every evening which had a good atmosphere.
Car parking was safe and secure and enjoyed a private joke with Mr Colombo of how my car reminded him of a Fiat Cinquecento, so we would leave the car at the Hotel and walk down to Menaggio, which is 20 minutes to Ferry port.Easy going downhill but make sure you save enough energy for the end of the day, to walk back up the hill!
Would recommend and definitely go back to Hotel Royal.

When we drove into the Royal Hotel, after a long trip from Geneva, it just looked like heaven. My husband said, you've done it again to me! We had a fantastic view from our upstairs room down to the lake, just wonderful. The room was small but for a couple of nights we didn't mind. Mr Colombo who owns the hotel, knew who my husband was straight away, called him by his name and welcomed us. He wasn't there when we booked him, but he knew who we were.
The food was lovely, good evening meal and breakfasts. I did go in the pool, very cold, but it was nearly the end of September. But no worries, it was good.
Will recommend this hotel to friends as it is a little gem

Mr Colombo, the proprietor clearly enjoys his work. He and his staff tirelessly ensure that his guests are well looked after. The hotel has 15 rooms, 7 in the main building ( our choice) and 8 in a separate building over the road. We stayed 7 days in room 6 which had a large balcony overlooking the pool area.

The rooms, public areas, restaurant and pool are all kept in an immaculate condition.

We had the half board option, which was a four course menu, the food and service being first class, with the wine and drinks being reasonably priced.

Mr Colombo tries to organise a private half day lake trip weekly, with him providing the entertainment, and providing drinks and canapés during the trip and a light lunch back at the hotel.

We would definately stay here again if we visited Lake Como

Didn't stay at Hotel Royal, but ate at Chez Mario restaurant 4 times during our holiday in Menaggio. Mario and the team are always welcoming and friendly, and the food is some of the best in the area - certainly more consistently good than others who claim to be better, but are a bit 'hit & miss'!
Recommend the houmemade pasta dishes - especially Alfredo, and the peppercorn steak was tender and tasty, all complimented by good recommendations of local Italian wine.
We will definitely be back next time we return to lake Como.

After spending 4 nights in this hotel, I can only recommend it for the excellent services one can find there. This place is a bit above Menaggio, but the hotel is very well sign-posted. Very clean and well looked after, from our room we had a beautiful view on the Lake Como, as well as over the village of Bellagio. The meals were of great quality, the swimming pool ideal and the personnel very agreeable.
