      • Great position and value, lovely little town. Very well branded hotel, pretty old building and also due to the nice cities/villages nearby. Staff were very helpful and room was spacious.

        Service at reception not really competent /, rude receptionist and furniture broken on landings. The breakfast was really bad.

      • The view was exceptional, hotel was wonderful and the staff were very helpful and spoke excellent English. Bathroom & shower were modern, breakfast was good.

        The beer and spirits were not great, and the bar area was awful, the food was very poor quality. The room was dirty, inclusive dinner was very poor, unfortunately the worst meal during the week we were away.

      • Great view of the lake and modern flatscreen TV in room had many English speaking stations. Location and decor were good, mountains and spacious bathroom felt like a paradise, the staff were very polite and helpful. Our bedroom was large and comfortable, the bar was not as bad as previous Booked. The food was varied and well presented.

        Only carvery hotel available, the pool is across the busy main road and old antique furniture in corridors mostly damaged and just shabby. Breakfast is almost inedible, crowded and noisy.

      • The position is excellent, a flat 10 minute walk from some good and definitely the worst hotel we have ever encountered in Italy and weve used a fair few. The staff are great and furniture are superb. The food is fabulous and plentiful.

        Pool area nice relaxing tho never paid the 2.50 for swim cap and the lobby and the reception is quite busy. The balconies should be shielded from each other for a little bit of privacy, kitchen seemed to be considerably short staffed and the restaurant is like a huge hall.

      • Friendly staff / location, ferry comes to Cadenabbia from the train direct and pool facility 200 yards away by the lake was clean and well presented. Hotel was good value, room was nice and the salad bar was superb as were the hot options. The buffet breakfast was fantastic, the wine waiters were very quick efficient.

        The food was poor quality and the town itself was too expensive to buy anything. The bathroom light did not work properly.
