I pointed out water leak from roof in the lobby area - hope they have fixed it! For the price we paid - we...

Had a great time. We went with Shearings on the overnight stop coach for 9 days. Paid for an upgrade on booking in, great room overlooking the lake, well worth the extra 40 euros. Staff were very good in particular the bar staff who all worked very hard and were very pleasant. Everything went well and will go with Shearings...

It was really an awesome 2 nights stay for me and my family. My husband loved the breakfast, there was a vast choices of foods and even the dinner was really exquisite. I suggest you get the lake view room, we were so fortunate to have a very spacious triple room. I really loved everything, the receptionists should be more...

Dont expect anything grand about this hotel. I'm sure it was nice back in the 80's but from entering this hotel I could see it wasn't gonna be a great hotel. The service was poor, the breakfast was not great at all, If you like a good buffet don't go to this one, the food looked so bad my wife...

Just returned from a Shearings trip to Lake Como, staying at this hotel. It was a great location for visiting Milan, Venice and Switzerland. The area around Lake Como is far more beautiful and characteristic than I expected.
