I have always had a very mixed feelings about hotels. On one hand I love being away and being surrounded by the luxury hotels have to offer, everything is served to you on a platter and you don’t have to worry about cleaning up after every meal, or making the bed every morning. However, at the same time I also really miss the comfort of being in my own home and being able to do things my way and mostly having the freedom of doing things whenever I want. So actually investing in a good hotel with good service especially on a holiday where I want to relax and not be out and about all the time, is really important and I think that is my key focus when planning a holiday. Thankfully my husband feels the same way about it, so we can both happily invest most of our holiday budget on the perfect hotel.
Our recent stay at the Villa D’Este hotel in Lake Como has to be one of the most indulgent ones we have had so far. The property was outstanding in every way be it the location, the architecture or the service. We actually booked this holiday quite last minute as initially we were meant to fly to Capri, but had to cancel due to a BA strike, but I have to say Villa D’Este did not disappoint!
