My stay at the Villa d'Este on the Como lakeside was stunning, it was truly unforgettable.
The staff were wonderful and the rooms were large and spacious.
We only ate breakfast at the hotel leaving evening meals to the local town of Cernobbio, and the food itself was to die for - I've got nothing but praise for the staff of this wonderful establishment!

Its expensive, but - you get what you pay for!

Just returned from Villa d'Este. Wonderful hotel where the service was fantastic. Sparkling wine on arrival, easter egg on Easter Sunday and farewell biscuits in the room with a note thanking us for our custom. May not sound a lot but it is the little touches that makes the difference. Big room (we were on 3rd floor overlooking courtyard). Service was impeccable, nothing too much trouble. Breakfast was to die for. We ate in the hotel 4 nights. The first 2 were at The Grill and were fine the 3rd & 4th at the 'posher' Veranda. The first night there was a bit disappointed with the venison but had been spoilt at the Lime Wood in Lyndhurst. The last night had the chefs recommendations - fish and it was fab. It is expensive - 2 coffee's a brandy and port 85 euros but it is a top end hotel and service doesn't come cheap so you should expect to pay. Used the spa and had a brilliant facial one of the best I have ever had. Actually came out feeling better than when I went in, face didn't feel tight and 'peeled' as has done in some spas! Sporting facilities were great too - proper 20 metre indoor pool, not an excuse for a pool as in a lot of hotels. Gym good (if a little warm). Didn't use outside pool as wasn't open yet. Grounds are lovely and relaxing. Couple of picky points - it says jogging track - well only if you are a mountain goat. The 14 year old was still in training for Virgin mini marathon and would have needed climbing gear to use it. And very picky I know but the beds were a little hard. Have been to other hotels where they use a mattress topper and it is so much better. On the whole lovely experience.

Room Tip: Was on third floor executive courtyard room so not the most expensive but lovely. Booked with Citalia and got breakfast included.

I decided to spend my birthday at Villa d'Este and did not regret it. It was a once-in-a-liftetime experience. We were staying on the 1st floor not far away from the spa I found it very convenient. We had a partial view on the lake and a great view on the mosaic which we found even much better especially at night.

I had a lovely card and a bottle of Champagne from the GM the day of my birthday.

A special mention for Maestro Dino Siano the excellent pianist who made my stay so special !!

In conclusion:

The -

We did not find our experience at the restaurant in terms of food that great. We found it was expensive for what it was and pretty much "flat tasting". We were expecting something else especially for such a place. However service was great and the dining room lovely. There was a reception and the Veranda restaurant was not available but we really enjoyed having dinner in the Sala Impero. The hotel kindly informed us 3 weeks prior to arrival about this and we appreciated it.

They should print new post card. They look so old. However, in the whole Como Lake it was difficult to find really nice bright post cards and guides. How come they do not take advantage of such a beautiful spot to print great post cards, especially when the hotel have great brochures.

Access to the indoor pool from outside is not very obvious.

We love:

The toiletries
The outstanding top notch service!!!!
The exceptional bed linen with the coat of arms
Great service at the spa
The daily newsletter "Buon Giorno"

Grazie Mille Villa d'Este. We will come back

Room Tip: I prefer the room with both view on the lake and the fabulous garden (mosaic). At night it is so beautiful
