My husband and I had a very happy time on Como. The staff were welcoming and helpful, and our room lovely, with balcony, but noisy road, of course. The Tavernola ferry stop is handy - we walked, cycled and sailed into Como town! The Lake is enchanting - with gorgeous views and noisy seaplanes.
Our great disappointment was splashing out on dinner on our last night. The dining room is grand and all the service rather pretentious, but the food was by no measurement value for money. Euros18 for a starter of grilled prawns in fennel puree, lavishly exaggerated on the menu, and as for a 'tempura' entree - two small pieces of trout, 2 slivers of carrot and pepper, all in batter. A VERY expensive birthday treat!
