눉The hotel does not serve an evening meal on Tuesday's but there is a trattoria within a few minutes walk which serves rustic meals at very reasonable prices.
There is very little in the town to attract visitors, other than one Villa, the building and gardens of which are open to the public. The lakeside road is comprised mostly of hotels with restaurants, interspersed with a few shops. However, the shops will not hold your interest for very long.
The town is linked to other towns around the lake and the best means of getting to them is by boat as the roads are quite narrow and can be busy with traffic.
Generally we thought that most of the towns were a tourist trap and this detracted a little from the splendour of the architecture and the scenery. However, Como is well worth a visit as it does not feature the tackiness of some of the smaller lakeside towns.
눇This is a family run business the members of whom give an excellent service to customers. Twin sisters and their spouses together with the daughter of one of the couples run the hotel and when the sisters father called in one evening he was introduced to the guests. The family is very friendly.
The hotel is a good 25 minute walk from the lake and the gradient is steep. However, the hotel run a shuttle service twice in the morning and twice in the early evening, so provided you can schedule round these times it is not necessary to walk.
The view from the hotel overlooks the lake, the town below and the towns on the opposite shoreline. It is best to visit these by boat, there being a regular service at modest prices.
We like that there is a swimming pool although we did not experience good weather during our visit so did not get chance to use it.
