Mrs Bloomfield, 04 July 2016

Cleanliness of the room was poor - very dusty and not very well maintained I needed to request to have the room cleaned and new light bulbs fitted on arrival. The sink was blocked and leaked so this needed to be repaired.
The food in the buffet area lacked fresh vegetables and fruit and was disappointing.

First room offered 2 very small drawers near floor, safe not securely secured, odd smell in room. Offered various other rooms turned down due to ranging from sewage smell, damp and mouldy, one room on 3rd floor only offered net over large bathroom window facing directly onto properties which offered no privacy if light on. Offered upgrade at 100 Euros to get drawer storage (upgrade was supposed to be for lake view which we weren't bothered about) Drawers in room were very old, split inside, dusty, struggled to open drawers and reclose. Changed to room on 5th Floor after paying upgrade. Good room until 5am, woke trying to vomit due to stench from bidet in ensuite, unable to enter bathroom at all due to overpowering smell. Night staff from desk came up, opened bathroom door and said 'no you cannot sleep here'. Unable to shower, had to use facial wipes. Had to dress and use toilet on ground floor. Bathroom was sorted but no guarantee it wouldn't happen again. Spoke to rep same day, rep offered room on 6th floor. OK for 2 nights, sewage/drain smell from aircon. - unable to use. Didn't report, just gave up as spent enough time repacking and moving rooms. Health & Safety issue tiles on balcony not cemented down, all tiles loose with spacers as if just fitted. Balcony to right of our room was the same as were the floor tiles on the sun terrace. Lovely resort but spoilt by this hotel. Also food very basic, did expect more selection and better standard due to a hotel of this size. Rooms were cleaned well but public carpet areas stained particularly outside lifts, smelly and dust line along skirting boards. Drainage type smell in entrance of hotel, lift areas and wifi area but no smelly drains outside hotel and area clean.. Seat cushions missing from downstairs seating at front of hotel. I wouldn't recommend the hotel and definitely wouldn't use it again.

Hotel staff very good, food good and hotel bedroom clean and comfortable, but furniture getting shabby especially the lounge and veranda chairs. To increase the dining room size the bar has been moved to the basement and it is very gloomy and dull. There was no entertainment at all, but nevertheless we enjoyed our stay very much. The floating pool and lakeside bar were much nicer and Lake Como is very beautiful.
