We had a warm welcoming. The town and the house are so charming ! The room was nice with a big bed, the bathroom was clean and we enjoyed the breakfast on the terrasse.
L'accoglienza di Francesco e Paola e' stata ottimale. La camera da letto e il bagno, erano puliti e ordinati. Paola si è dimostrata davvero cortese e disponibile; se ritornerò a Cernobbio sicuramente farò loro nuovamente visita.
Initially when making the booking and communicating with Francesco we were very impressed. He kindly accommodated an error on my behalf of booking dates and allowed me to re-book with no penalty as well as making a requested lunch reservation for me - we so appreciated this!
However the property was very disappointing. We do not feel it is adequately described as this is not a B&B; more so a room in someone's home and not a very comfortable one at that.
After entering through a garage and storage area (winding staircase is less than ideal) you are met with a room where your suitcases can not even be opened, the sheets are pilled (after being used 1000 times) and the pillows like cardboard, the towels are so dry and thin they feel as if they may cut you, no hot water at night and no toilet paper until we asked. There are private signs marked in "your room" which is quite odd for a room you pay for in a "b&b" and children/the family can be heard right above you until late at night. The bathroom is a family bathroom with private belongings and washing being done during your stay which is all quite bizarre and not mentioned; nor what one would expect of a business, a B&B.
That being said, Paola awoke early to prepare our breakfast before departing and was very kind and gentle also.
first of all we regret you felt so uncofortable, but as far as I found in 45 years travel the B&B was and are in a private home and not in a mansions as we wrote you in our e-mails and what is shown in the pictures. I don't understand where you found a garage because we don't have one. About the room the space to lean the baggage is set for a normal suitcase I'm sure because tested by myself, pillows and towels are personal feeling and a lot of other people appreciate the way they are and ofcourse towels are piled in the bathroom in the proper bracket as used in all the hotels and the "private" signs are just on the wardrobe portion dedicated to the wraps/blankets/towels storage. The bathroom is a family bathroom because we are a true B&B but it's dedicated and at exclusive use of the guest then present, no one of us will use it and no one of us used it during your stay, maybe you mix-up a normal managing with using of bathroom by us, we put on the holder the towels you leave all around. Other strange things are about the missing of hot water (??) and the toilet paper (we suppose that 1and1/2 rools was enough for two people for one night and maybe this is the reason of WC plugged), the kids playing untill late night then usually they go to sleep at least at 10pm.
Anyhow we think that these kinds of matter will be handled and discussed on site directly with the owners that's the best way to solve problem/misunderstanding, our suspect is that you usually lodge in 4-stars hotel that provide service of room and breakfast only that is totally different from the B&B spirit.
The room was high up over the Lago di Como, extremly small road, we could not find it, ether with navigator, nor with Francescos plan, he did not come to get us, parking was 700m away, the Bar closed at eight a clock in the evening, room and bath were clean, but very simpel, bed was ok, it was cold without (email hidden)ola was very nice!
We are very sorry for the problem with the room temperature but in Como area is forbidden by law to heating-up before the 15th october (bill to pay are very high in case of unattending) in any case a lot of warm blanket are at Guests disposition in the wardrobe, and about the difficult ot reach us was enough to call for explanation, as wrote in the B&B description we recommend warmly to switch-off the navigation system in Cernobbio because it doesn't function properly and the most of the time it drive to the short-cut that are really narrow while the main road are daily used by urban busses. It could be helpfull to know what isn't clear in the explanation how to reach us so we shoul correct it. Thanks anyhow for the compliments we try our best to let feel our Guests as at home even if our home it's a home nothing more and the Village it's a small mountain village (1000 year old). In case of a second time visti I'll serve you my original Chinese green tee (bought in China)
