Grand Hotel Menaggio has the best location in town. It’s right on the lakefront and you can’t help but notice the hotel from the water – it’s old-world charm really stands out. The centre of Menaggio is only 300 metres away so you can easily explore the shops and bars, or jump on a ferry and head out for the day. It’s a great base as ferries from here go all over the lake. To make the most of the location, we recommend upgrading to a Superior Room. You’ll get uninterrupted lake views and your own private space to watch the sunrise over the lake each morning.
The outside areas here are lovely. The gardens are well-established and beautifully maintained. The pool’s a nice spot to kick back and relax for the day. You get views of the lake from here and you can see all the way to Bellagio. La Veranda is a nice place for lunch, it’s close to the pool so you won’t have to venture far. They’ve got a good selection of light dishes and antipasti. The cocktail menu is great too. Try and save some room for dinner though as there’s a fine dining a la carte restaurant too if you fancy a special meal at the hotel (payable locally).
Transfer time: approx. 2 hours by coach from Milan Malpensa airport.
