This hotel is ideally situated for crossing the lake in various directions and an easy walk into the centre (20 mins). This makes it very busy but the double glazing and the air conditioning in our room made all the difference ! The hotel dates back to 1896 and has lost none of its charm. We loved it all. The staff are well trained and polite. Our room which was cleaned daily had a high ceiling and was spacious with two windows. One had a lovely view of the lake and the other had a balcony looking down to the ferry and beyond to the lovers walk. It was worth paying the extra. The breakfasts were excellent with plenty of choice and kept us going all day.

My wife and I had a wonderful stay here. The service from the staff is excellent, they make you feel so welcome throughout your stay. The included breakfast is a great value and delicious too. The rooms are clean, spacious and and the beds comfortable. Each room has water views. This hotel is just steps from the mid-lake ferry docks and very convenient. Also, a 5 min walk to train station. Couldn't recommend this hotel more for a visit to Varenna.

Friendly place in Varenna
A small family run hotel. The location at the ferry stop in Varenna is un-beatable. The staff is friendly and accommodating (I am pretty sure that the waiters were sons of the owners).
