excellent English breakfast, free parking nearby without security. BIG room and romantic lake view. 2 min to the Pier. wonderful with those who like Lake and leisure far away from City. It's a big hotel so there are a lot of crowdy group tour
We liked the location and the oldness of the hotel. The room view of the lake was splendid. The rooms were very small, and the bathrooms smell bad.
we had a very nice room that was larger and much more elegant than we expected for the money - a cut above other rooms! breakfast was dreadful - not at all worth the money. orange jiuce wasn't juice, coffee came out of a self service machine and tasted horrible, hardly anything to eat - I would only recommend this hotel if you pay more for the lakeside view and larger room
Very comfortable rooms and lounge areas, though very ornate. Ideally situated for Lake Como and the cross lake ferry service with wonderful access to the lake side and the few shops wine bars etc. Especially attractive at night looking across the lake.The staff were very polite and helpful Wasn't very impressed with the evening meal but the breakfast buffet service was excellent with a very wide choice on offer and of good quality, run very efficiently for the size of the hotel which is huge.
Very nice atmosphere. Excellent location. Very courteous and professional service ----
superb location. nice staff, big room poor breakfast.
off season price -breakfast included.
Good price, beautiful view of the lake from our room and private balcony. The interior was a little over the top. And the "hot breakfast" was only server for a couple of hours in the morning.
It is very close of the lake situated in the main road and has parking The doors are closed at night and if you arrive after 12pm you will have to phone a very nice guy Joel to open the door (poor him!)
Very good service from the staff and the breakfast was good.
We slept one night. Family hotel with excellent location on the lake. Room clean and large. Rooms with lake view can be a bit noisy because of the road between the hotel and the lake. Small parking place available. The beds are not very long...your feet might come out.
Genuinely lovely owners and staff who went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. They were most helpful with advice and suggestions of places to see. This beautiful location is also close to buses and ferries.
The atmosphere from the time of welcome was caring. The Hotel was clean and a pleasure to stay in. The lakeside setting was idyllic. Not a thing.
The view I thought this hotel was expensive and it was quite shabby. There is no outside space to relax and parking was difficult. No air conditioning or fridge. It was very noisy from the road and other guests.
The staff was very helpful in planning our daily itinerary to visit the Lake Como area including a side-trip to Lugano, Switzerland.
Great place to stay with reasonable rates. Staff is very personable and helpful in directing their guests to places of interest and dining.
The owners were fabulous and really helped personalize our stay. Their recommendations of sights to see and restaurants to go to made our visit exceptional. It truly enabled us to enjoy a very cultured experience.
Very nice and helpful staff. Everybody spoke English. Old hotel, but very clean and has amazing views of the lake. Also, has a nice little restaurant.
Family run Owners speak perfect English Overlooks lake with parking Restaurant closed Mondays
Beautiful terraces... breathtaking and very nice. Poor air conditioning. Restaurant not completed as well but everyone was so wonderful!!!! Did not like the restaurant but I guess they are improving it.
The views from the sun terrace. I did not like the restaurant menu as it only gave a choice of 3 starters and 3 main courses which is very poor for a 4 star hotel. I did not like that they closed off the sun terrace on the sunday because of a private function and did not inform us. I did not like that we couldn't have a shower in our room. I did not like the noise above our room.
The view Hotel recently decorated but looks like finished in a rush. Also still some building work going on outside. The bar area inside has too many lights and lacks any atmosphere.
The view was excellent, the room was beautiful and the staff was freindly and helpful The noise from workers who were doing renovations and the traffic outside our window
lovely terrace and pool. a bit isolated, very quiet.
great building, great pool shabby bedroom i.e.: minor cracks in the wall, warn out floor. Long queue for breakfast
The view is beautiful (if you get a room overlooking the lake), and the location is extremely convenient to the ferry to Bellagio, Varenna, and Menaggio - just a few minutes walk. It was extremely economical, especially for the area, but I would by no stretch of the imagination call this a luxury hotel. The public spaces are nice, but the rooms are basic. The room was inexpensive, a double with lake view and balcony for $190 per night, so it was an excellent value for the location. It is just fine if you don't intend to spend a lot of time in the room, which is rather dingy. The bathroom was clean and modern, however, and the shower's water pressure was excellent. The room was small and very basic, with very few amenities. The furniture was cheap and ugly - like a college dorm room. The bedspread and blankets were dingy and cheap as well - like at a Motel 6. The breakfast was paltry and completely unappealing. Even the coffee was bad! After the first morning, I skipped breakfast every day, even though it was included. The dining room staff was plentiful but consistently unhelpful and brusque.
Our experience of the Grand Hotel Cadenabbia is all totally positive. Such a beautiful hotel and the staff very courteous. Our room with a balcony was on the fourth floor and had a most impressive view of the lake. A 'Lake View' room is a must. We had a very comfortable bed, nice white linen and a great bathroom with lovely toiletries. Lunch on the outside terrace overlooking the lake was great - good food and at a reasonable price. We knew from the website that we were on a road beside the lake, in a 'quiet' area with regards to shops etc., but we were close to the hop-on, hop-off, ferries and could drive into the high mountains if we wished. We would like to return one day and we will certainly recommend this hotel to our friends. There was nothing we did not like.
We did like the style of the hotel, the location and the lovely pool area with real lawn and plants and flowers. No complain, but the scrambled eggs at breakfast were terrible.
