great place to stay, scenery is stunning from the lakeside rooms, a lovely quiet town, hotel staff are very friendy and helpful. Only drawback is that the restaurant is only open for breakfast. Would love to return here sometime. My wife says best place she's ever stayed.

We recently enjoyed a stay at this hotel as my partner had to make a brief business trip to the area. The room was spotless, with the most incredible views over the lake and hotel poolside. Within minutes, the owner arrived at our room with complimentary Prosecco, fruit and nibbles, what a lovely welcome! The hotel in general was extremely clean and the staff could not have been more accommodating. Breakfast was well cooked and plentiful, however my only slight complaint would be that the hotel offers no tea or coffee making facilities in the rooms. Following a stress free checkout (again our request for early checkout was accommodated for without fuss, despite being very early) and upon arrival at the airport, I realised I had left my purse at the hotel. One brief telephone call confirmed this and the hotel staff noted the exact amount of money that I had left in the purse and the money was duly deposited in my bank account a couple of days later. They even went to the trouble of posting the empty purse which arrived at my home address shortly after. We will definitely be returning at a later date when we have more time to explore this stunning region. Sadly, customer service to this level is lacking in most hotels these days but staff at Hotel Regina were fabulous!

This is one of the nicest, cleanest and underrated hotels I have had the pleasure of staying in. The views are to die for and you could eat your well cooked breakfast off any floor.

All that said, listen to this....... my partner left her purse in the room upon checkout. We were boarding a flight before realising. The hotel contacted us and said they had found it in the room with EXACTLY the amount of money still in it. 110 Euros of cash plus UK Sterling. Thats honesty and integrity for you.

Tip - Ask for Top floor (level 4) for the best views.

Driving along Lake Como to arrive at Gravedona is a wonderful experience with breathtaking views most of the way.
Our hotel receptionist was a lovely young girl who attentively showed us to our room on the 4th floor which had magnificent views too from the verandah. However, the room was on the small size and no tea / coffee facilities were to be seen.

When we asked if we could have. A kettle or jug, were told they didn't have any which was disappointing as we had brought tea and coffee with us.

The outside relaxation area of the hotel is well set up with lots of sun lounges, some tables and chairs and a nice pool which looked inviting.

The hotel is a little way out of the village so you really need a car here to get to a restaurant in town.

Breakfast was provided and was adequate, but the cappuccino was a delight.

Room Tip: It looks like all rooms have a verandah. Certainly our 4th floor had spectacular views. Verandas a...

My wife and I spent 2 weeks here recently and the hotel is decent - great views, friendly staff and in a nice quiet town on Lake Como. As we stayed over a weekend, we were fairly dependent on the ferry to take us to busier areas - and unfortunately, Gravedona is only serviced once or twice a day. To get to Bellagio alone takes 1.5 hours, and over 3 to Coma via ferry, and we only had the choice of 1 or 2 ferries. Worth noting as if you are pressed for time, probably better to stay in a larger town.

In terms of the hotel itself, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are very large, spacious and clean. Unfortunately the beds and pillows are the hardest I have ever encountered, and felt like sleeping on a wooden board. The sewerage is also quite loud, and we could hear each time the rooms above us flushed the toilet.

Poor beds and quiet location aside, this is a nice hotel.

First off, i'd note that the Regina isn't really a hotel, it's a B&B. There is no restaurant for lunch or dinner, and the bar isn't staffed (of which more later). We chose this hotel because of it's location, the fact it had a swimming pool and the excellent reviews on this site.

So, to start with the positives. The location is excellent. The views from the lake rooms are amazing and the pool and garden is lovely. There are lovely sunbeds and the swimming pool is very nicely kept. It's only a 5/10 minute walk into Gravedona which has a 4 or 5 restaurants, a couple of gelateria's and 1 fairly lively bar with live music. I agree with the other reviews in that our room and bathroom were absolutely spotless and our room was spacious with a little balcony. There is also plenty of parking at the hotel.

Unfortunately on to the negatives.
- The pool was freezing. I mean painfully cold. Which meant I plunged in once to prove a point but we couldn't take the baby in, or really enjoy it which was very disappointing as it was one of the main reasons I chose the hotel.
- The little beach is really rocky. You definitely need shoes to get in.
- The breakfast is terrible. I found this particularly annoying as it's been mentioned in plenty of other reviews so they clearly haven't taken the trouble to improve. The was some raw looking stone cold bacon, similiarly cold solid scrambled egg, cold boiled eggs that were so over-cooked they were like rubber. There were some ok cold cuts but very poor selection of cheese. A toaster that would take about 10 minutes to toast the horrible bread. After I complained the next day they at least bothered to light the heater under the bacon but that was it.
- The breakfast staff were unhelpful and pretty miserable (with the exception of one smiley young girl who was unfortunately only there for a couple of mornings). Questions tended to be met with a flat no. Having read other reviews on this site about the amazing service I have to say I found it pretty substandard.
- They didn't even have a highchair for the baby in the restaurant. To be fair, once I asked them to get one it turned up the next day but really, you can buy them in Ikea for 20euros so there's no excuse.
- There was no-one to staff the bar which meant that every time you wanted a drink you had to go up to reception and ask them to come down when they were free. Which wasn't the end of the world. However, after the first night they ran out of gin (we had 2 each). So then we had 2 vodka tonics the next night and they ran out of vodka. We were told they didn't stock whisky. So basically we could drink tequila or campari. How hard is it to make sure you've got a couple of bottles of the staples behind the bar. We finally just went and bought ourselves a bottle of whisky and ordered the cokes.
- Small point but there are tables and chairs on the balconies but no light so if you want to sit out at night you have to sit in the pitch dark.

All in we enjoyed our stay at the Regina and found the hotel largely adequate, but with some annoying faults that could be easily rectified. It's a pleasant enough hotel but unfortunately I just didn't think it lived up to the very positive reviews I read on this site (or the price).

Stumbled upon this place after checking out a number disappointing hotels on the west coast of Lake Como. From the road you don't see the spectacular position this hotel has. Right on the lake with small stoney beach and beautiful views across the small bay to the village centre. The pool with its feet in the lake was clean. We had a deluxe room with a very large balcony and superb views. The balcony could have been done with better screening from the neighboring balcony and room had no aircon. Other from that it was very nice. Staff was super friendly and the breakfast buffet was good. The receptionist recommended an excellent restaurant called Kay de mat or something similar. Food was excellent an the atmosphere on the terrace trully Italian and romantic. We would definitely stay there again
