Hotel Barchetta Excelsior
The Hotel Barchetta Excelsior prides itself on being one of the most highly regarded hotels in the city of Como. The hotel has been accommodating guests and welcoming diners to its famous restaurant since the late 19th Century, and now it is the perfect base for a Lake Como golf holiday.
The hotel has over 50 lake view rooms, many of which have their own private balcony. The view is stunning both day and night. A smaller number of city view rooms are also available for guests who are travelling on more of a budget. All room types come with Air-conditioning, satellite television, mini-bar, wifi connections and a small safe. If you want something a little more luxurious, choose one of the hotel’s junior suites.
The hotel still prides itself on serving contemporary Italian cuisine to guests and non-residents. The skilled chef uses seasonal produce to his advantage, to create mouth-watering dishes that are sure to delight. Depending on the weather, there is also the opportunity to dine al fresco on the restaurant terrace. The beautiful lake climate makes this an appealing prospect in the summer months. Liquid refreshments can also be taken in the American Bar, which serves a range of fine liquors and freshly made cocktails. This is the perfect place to unwind after you have spent a day out on the course.
Outside of the hotel, there is plenty to see and do. The city has a strong silk heritage, so can explore the Silk Museum and purchase some locally produced pieces. Alternatively, you can take part in one of many lake-based activities that Como has to offer. Of course, you can also indulge in your passion for golf. There are seven fantastic courses to choose from within just 30 kilometres of the hotel, including the Villa d’Este course and the Menaggio/Cadenabbia courses. You can find even more courses to choose from if you are prepared to travel just a little bit further afield.
