We are delighted to feature the superb Britannia Excelsior Hotel,
which is one of the most popular hotels on Lake Como. An historical 19th
century hotel, built and furnished in traditional Italian style, today
it is owned and managed by the Whieldon family who extend a warm welcome
to all their guests.
The hotel is situated in an enviable position directly across the
road from the lakeside in Cadenabbia, and has stunning views over the
lake to Bellagio. It’s just 50 metres from the boat landing stage, where
regular ferries and steamers stop to take you to all Lake Como’s towns
and beauty spots.
The 3 star Britannia Excelsior has spacious and comfortable public
areas and beautifully decorated lounges, a well stocked bar, a large
restaurant featuring “show cooking” islands and an outdoor sun terrace
with commanding views over the lake. All of the 280 en-suite bedrooms
are comfortably furnished and feature air conditioning/heating, ceiling
fan, hairdryer, telephone, ’fridge, safe and satellite TV.
Accommodation is reserved on an ‘All Inclusive’ basis, with hot and
cold buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. Free local brand spirits,
wines, beers, soft drinks, tea and coffee are served between 10.30am and
Prices are based on standard Comfort twin bedrooms. Comfort rooms
with a lake view and/or a balcony are available at a supplement.
Standard Deluxe rooms and Deluxe rooms with a balcony and/or a lake view
are also available at a supplement. Please note that the difference
between Comfort and Deluxe rooms relates to the furnishings/decor and
not the size of the room.
A water shuttle service across the lake to Bellagio is offered by the
hotel and is free of charge to Mistral guests. The shuttle operates at
varying times during the day in the summer season, usually from mid May
to mid September (subject to weather conditions).
Hotel Lakeside Lido
The hotel’s Lido Beach Club, just 100 metres from the hotel, is where
from late April until mid September, you can soak up the sun by the
large swimming pool. There is also a bar serving the free “all
inclusive” drinks (excluding spirits) during the daytime. Mistral guests
also enjoy a 20% discount at the Lido’s a la carte restaurant.
