    Situated in a perfect location in the centre of Cadenabbia and just across the road from the lakeside, the recently refurbished Hotel Britannia Excelsior enjoys beautiful views out across Lake Como. Just a few metres from the hotel and on the lakeside itself is the lido pool and directly in front of the hotel is the floating pool, set on a platform over the lake, where you can take in the sunshine during the day - the ideal spot for an evening aperitif. The bedrooms vary in size and rooms at the rear of the hotel have a quieter outlook towards the village.

Ratings

With all the various national tourist boards applying widely varying criteria to hotel ratings, the whole question of international hotel grades has become confused. We have therefore applied our own 'rating', representing the general standards of that country in order that fairer comparisons can be made.

Please note: rating may differ from the official star rating of the local tourist board. Our classifications take into account not only the basic facilities, but also the location, leisure facilities, general character and atmosphere of the hotel, as well as customer feedback. Chalet ratings give comparisons with other chalets but do not provide like for like comparisons with the ratings of full service hotels.
