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.

... one of the best tables in the house. The setting was just perfect to celebrate the occassion and a bottle Veuve Clicquot to start was just right. A shared plate of melon and proscuitto followed by roast veal for Julie and fillet mignon for Richard, then they presented us with a plate with some small desserts on which they had written in chocolate "Buon Anniversario". On the walk back to our room we lashed out and had a single cone gettato to finish. Just a perfecto evening.
... back to the railway station, but we’ve fallen for the place just the same. I think the key is the unassuming way the town just gets on with being, while people like us come and go. The little piazza below our window is the only square in the town so it’s not only the place where people meet, but also a favourite spot for kids to run and do the things kids do.
We’ve even grown attached to the church with the bell we’ve named ...
... Couple are on their honeymoon and had arrived in Milan that morning, they have no Euros just a credit card, sorry no card, no time to get to a cash machine, so I signed him on a Rockwell Finance Get Out of Trouble Loan Contract and he was able to buy his ticket.
Out of adversity we all agreed that it turned out for the good and we enjoyed the ferry ride on Lake Como in brilliant sunshine, friends for life, unless he misses a ...
... line, but even so, Milano station is an experience. We join the throng of touristas trying to decipher the flashing boards announcing trains and platforms. Our first problem is that you need to know the final destination of your train, and we don’t. Look, there’s an official looking young man over there. He has a white shirt and a tie. He has a name tag - Cheisa di Gesu Christo Dei Santi Degli Ultimi ...
