Amazing hotel in a fabulous location - AMAZING!!!
Posted Sep 23, 2015
We arrived in the pouring rain but even this could not dampen our spirits in regard to Lake Como and the Grand Hotel Tremezzo. The hotel is grand, welcoming and everything I could have hoped for and I am a very fussy individual who is not easily pleased! All the restaurants look out on Lake Como as does the Spa Area. They even have a relaxation room with 4 large round day beds which overlooks the lake which was perfect for reading in when one morning it was pouring down with rain.
The staff are helpful the rooms are great. We had a park facing room which was nice and had a nice view over one of the pools, although next time I will pay the extra for a lake facing room as the views are breath taking and the rooms are even lighter and brighter.
Food in the hotel is pricey but this is what you would expect from a 5 star hotel. We had lunch in the hotel a couple of times but apart from the veal which was delicious, the risotto, Caesar salad and pasta dishes were nothing to write home about.
The dining room however, was a different story. We had two amazing meals there, the pumpkin soup and crayfish pasta were amazing, the Beef was good too but could have done with some green beans to accompany it. However, the crowning glory was the crepe suzette. It was the best one I have ever eaten and I have eaten a lot over the years!
Overall I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone, it is not cheap but is sooooooo worth the money.
