We stayed here for 6 nights in April 2014 and had a lovely holiday. This fabulous hotel is in a wonderful position facing the lake and has great views looking across to Bellagio and other pretty towns along the lakeside.(It is a 3 star hotel but was better than some 4 star hotels we have stayed in.) The hotel is...

The position of this hotel is lovely - beautiful views, close to the ferry across to Bellagio. We had a lovely room on the fifth floor (500) with views across the lake and also to the side looking up the mountains. It is an all inclusive hotel so you get all meals and drinks included. The drinks were OK -...

Stayed 6 nights in March on an all inclusive basis. Prebooked a room with balcony and lake view which was fantastic. The room was set back from the road so traffic wasn't a problem and the views across the lake to Bellagio were stunning. The room had three beds, a fridge and plenty of space and the bathroom had a...

Well, what can I say, first time with Shearings, overnight stay on coach just bearable but well worth it for the hotel and it's magnificnt views over Lake Como. We had upgraded upon arriving at the hotel for a front room view with a balcony, well worth the 40 euro's. All the staff were excellent apart from the cleaner's could...

Good in parts, in other words. We stayed 4 nights in this hotel on a recent all-inclusive holiday with Leger. It's a strange hotel, in some ways. Rather grand and ornate in the lobby, dining room and public areas, but the rooms and upstairs corridors have seen better days. Our room was huge with a small balcony overlooking the lake,...

Travelled to this hotel with Leger Holidays from North London. Stayed overnight in Reims on the way out and back. Rather basic accommodation in the Ibis Hotel, but not too much to complain about given the cost of this holiday. Coach was comfortable and the drivers/guides really good. All the travel went to plan. Hotel is very good. Friendly staff...
