Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 November 2011

On several occasions my wife and I have taken lunch here, on the sun-kissed terrace of the Hotel du Lac, with wonderful views across the panoramic scene of the central part of the Lake and the food is excellent too! It is our favourite restaurant The menu is comprehensive and beautifully prepared and served. The staff are so kind and welcoming and they speak very good English. You can order a light snack or a 3 course meal and there is a good wine list too. The terrace and bar area are spotlessly clean. We like this place for its quality food and its quiet ambience. To reach the hotel, on leaving the ferry turn right and head for the walkway over the water and around the shore. Keep on until you reach a tiny hamlet with two restaurants and pass through here into the tiny square, where you keep left and the Hotel du Lac garden gate is on the right. This gentle walk takes about 15 mins.
We have not stayed at this hotel, mainly because they do not serve evening meals, but it does look very inviting.

My companion and I were guests at Hotel du Lac in October, just prior to the end of the tourist season in the Lake Como area. Our stay at the hotel was wonderful, with windows and a small balcony right over Lake Como, looking west. The small bar area is perfect: quiet, unobtrusive service, and unmatchable views.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in October. The hotel (and town) were very picturesque. The rooms were a generous size and very clean. We booked a lake view room, and the view from our balcony was lovely. The bathroom was clean and also a good size for a European hotel. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Free WiFi was great. There was really nothing bad to say about this place. Varenna was a little sleepy for our taste, but certainly beautiful. We did some hiking on the Sentiero del Viandante, which was definitely worth the trouble for the views. Also took a cooking class at Il Caminetto for a change of pace after several days of hiking. It was a very nice experience and great to meet some new people.
