The hotel is in a stunning spot above the town (10 mins by cab from the ferry; 15-20 minute walk via the lanes) and has a lovely garden and swimming pool. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was "snug" and bathroom was tiny - this wasn't a huge problem because we had a lovely big balcony but something to be aware off. Sadly there is a house/hotel being built in the plot next door so sitting on the balcony wasn't the relaxing experience it could have been. The restaurant food was extremely tasty.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view room as the views are stunning.

We chose this hotel based on other reviews on tripadvisor and these were fairly accurate. Mario is the friendliest and best humoured matradee and hotel owner we have had the pleasure to meet. He speaks a number of different languages fluently including English, French and German and makes time to speak with all of the guests.
His son is the chef at the restaurant and the food is so good, we chose to eat here most nights.
The view from the hotel is wonderful and it is a huge asset having a pool and a lounge which we enjoyed using in the evenings after dinner. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. All in all an excellent experience and we can see why he has so much repeat business. Thank you Mario!

The rooms with terrace are very nice, especially the terrace with panoramic view. The only drawback is the absence of a minibar in the room and instead of one big bed we were provided twin beds, which was not comfortable.
For the rest - everything was quite good: the service, hospitality, staff very helpful, breakfast ok, the restaurant we couldn't try, as it was booked for a wedding. The lobby very cozy. The position quite up the hill, which allows to have nice panoramic views but a bit difficult for people who don't like walking up the hill, by car is fine. In my opinion the price is a bit high for a 3* hotel. In general we enjoyed our short stay in this hotel.

We just spent four lovely days at the Hotel Royal and it is one of a kind. Mr Colombo is the perfect host and he and the staff go out of the way to make your stay memorable. As some writers have said, the rooms are small but Lake Como is such a lovely area that it draws one to be outside. The breakfasts were outstanding, the dinners gourmet and, again, the staff could not have been more helpful. It is a bit of a hike from town and it really helps to have a car to get there but to also get to many of the out of the way villages and hiking areas Lake Como has to offer. Mr Colombo and his staff could provide training to other places on how to run a hotel and make every guest feel welcome. A real gem.

Room Tip: The main building rooms are very good and the breakfast and dining area and bar are just a few steps...

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!
