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.

GrupoTX was astounding because the office was inside something which looked like a prison and there were rows and rows of people working on “paper stuff”. The owner of GrupoTX is very ambitious ...
Having explored the town on Tuesday afternoon we decided to have a lazy day around the pool today, have a few beers and soak up some of the afternoon sun. We met some girls from Lucerne that gave us a few tips for France before having a feed, some Swiss ice cream and settling in for our last night in Switzerland. 12 days has gone very fast but has been action packed and a time I'll never forget. Thanks ...
... and checked into our hostel on the hill. A great little hostel/hotel with a pool and good view of the lake. We explored the town of Lugano and walked around the lake before a couple of beers and some booking of future adventures. Sailing in Turkey is now sorted making August a very busy ...
... ferry ride across a few of the popular villages such as Bellagio. We discovered why there was only 1 hostel in Lake Como, everyone is old and everything is expensive! So this wasn't a party place but still very beautiful to see. It had gotten too cold to go swimming so we just did some sight seeing and explored all of the cute back Italian streets. I was sick as a dog and it was freezing (so much for a European summer) so we did a lot of cafe hopping ...
