Reviewed 7 June 2014

We had booked at an agriturismo in the area, but although it was good and very scenic location, the uneven and sloping pathways made it difficult for my wife to get around. On our way down into Agregno the following morning we looked into La Griglia and could not believe the quality of the rooms and most reasonable price ! Bruna (the owner's daughter) speaks good English and runs the place with her brother Lino,

Lino was able to negotiate a cancellation at the agriturismo and we are currenty enjoying 4 nights before travelling on to La Fontaine in Stresa.The location just 3 kms above Argegno made it a cooler and quieter place to stay.

Their restaurant is first class and also reasonably priced,and we never wanted to eat anywhere else during our stay !

Room Tip: We enjoyed our room with a balcony overlooking the front garden.

Stayed here for 2 nights last weekend and had an amazing time. The hotel is in DSant'Ana high above Argegno up a twisty mountain path.
Huge room with a balcony was bright and airy and very comfortable with plenty of storage space. Lovely large bathroom with shower and bidet. Clean and well decorated too. The hotel seemed very quiet and we could sit on the balcony with a glass of wine and enjoy the view of the garden and the mountains. It has a very large and secure car park that is locked at night. The gardens are well kept and beautiful. Staff were good humoured and helpful and froze our freezer packs for us (always a bonus when you are travelling).

You can walk down to Argengno on a path at the other side of the Church. The path is steep and easy going down but returning is more challenging so make sure you have water to drink. In Argegno itself there are a few restaurants and a handful of shops, but there is a boat that goes around central Como and will take you too Bellagio. Fabulous views here all around-it really is idyllic.

Make sure you eat in the restaurant at La Griglia as the food is amazing. The English translation on the menu is hilarious and confusing so ask for the Italian version. We had some very delicious fish.

The breakfast was plentiful and the coffee and apple juice delicious. One of the best hotels I have stayed in.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room as they have more space.

After searching the web for a reasonably priced hotel at Lake Como, I had almost given up. The ones I liked were either too expensive or already booked. The others were poorly reviewed or just not appealing. This hotel popped up and I looked it over. The price was so low that I thought, oh well, we will just be staying a night (and it had parking and wifi) so I booked it. As it turned out, it was one of the best places that I have stayed in Italy. It was up on the hillside, in a quiet village. We had a very charmingly comfortable room with a tiny balcony that overlooked the lake. Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Since it was pouring rain at dinnertime we decided to eat in the hotel's restaurant. That was another small miracle. Food in Italy is almost always fantastic and this was even better. I highly recommend this hotel and restaurant and hope to return to stay here again.

We arrived and the chef and her brother the sommelier greeted us at the door. Everything was set up. A table for the chef and a table for us. There is a minimum of four persons. The drive up from the lake is quite scenic. The chef prepared a dish for us and as she prepared we ate and drank wine. The price is reasonable it was somewhere around eu 50/person. The restaurant was new, but was redone with sensitivity to the place and time. We later ate dinner at the restaurant. Again the wine was excellent. We learned in our 2 months in italy to request the house wines. They don't disappoint. The meal was quick and very tasty. I would highly recommend this cooking class and this restaurant to anyone who expects the best. You will get the best at la griglia.

This was our second visit to La Griglia. We came back with three other couples because we felt it was so special. The staff is wonderful, the rooms clean and well equipped, the restaurant food was all home made with the freshest of ingredience, and the breakfast included fresh rolls and homemade pastries with cheeses and meats.

Also, the setting of the hotel is charming with a beautiful view of Lake Como. We a want to return.

Thank you to Lino and all the staff.

Room Tip: Several of the rooms have patios. Request one of these--lovely!

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights on Oct 2010.

Cons:
Be prepared for a stay where nobody speaks any English, which makes getting the info on local things to do impossible.

The breakfast is adequate - except for the cold boiled eggs, which we found weird.


Pros:
On the upside, the room and bathroom are both are VERY big and the internet is super-fast.
Plus the restaurant was very good value for money [and tasty]
Finally the area is so quiet, so sleeping is very peaceful [except for when the dogs have a bark or two]

Overall a great place to stay.
