Reminds me of a 70's family hotel. Which is great by the way. Mainly I am talking about the set breakfast and dinner hours, your room number on your table, which is the same tale every meal. Like a Flag Inn back home in Australia.
The room was clean and functional, although very small. Not enough room to open 2 suit cases.
The pool is great though, there is air on and tv and bar fridge in the room.
And the staff where always helpful and pleasant.
Getting to and from town you have three choices: taxi (€15), bus (~€2) or walk. The walking path is great actually, and obviously easier to walk down to Menaggio than back up. Takes less than 30 minutes down.

We're on our way to Italy for the next month and stopped for the night in Bellinzona in the Swiss Alps, we are only an half hours drive from Lake Lugano which we'll visit tomorrow. The first snow of the year fell last night, but I don't think anyone here gets to excited about it, as most of the hotels seem to be closed until the 4th December!
... town to town. We first went to Varenna and walked around. Then back to Bellagio for lunch on the lake. Then to Managgio and back again to Bellagio. It's all very beautiful here and we are just taking the opportunity to relax. We will use our balcony this evening for gazing into Lake Como and then tomorrow we make the trek to Strasbourg. Ciao ...
... at our hotel in Bellagio! Stunning! We bought our ticket from Milan to Strasbourg. Thank goodness we are traveling on Saturday. Today and tomorrow the train and airport employees are striking! I hope it ends as planned on Friday night! We took the hotel shuttle to the town center and met a nice couple from Long Island on the bus and hung out with them at Bar Rossi on the harbor. Peggy and Keith showed up and we went with them ...
... mountains. Looking at the mountains with their huge houses on them undoubtedly owned by rich folk. We had a kebab for lunch and were harassed by little sparrows while eating. One of which was brave enough to go for it while it was in my hand. Cheeky *******.
We waited for the bus in the hostel waiting room and perused the Busabout handbook to decide what it is we were doing in Lauterbrunnen.
One thing was for certain. It was going to be a very exciting couple of ...
