We visited this hotel late August '13. The hotel was comfortable and very clean. We were placed well between Garda and Bardolino. We booked B and B and evening meal and we're very disappointed in the food, both the quality and preparation were poor. Without a doubt a new chef is required.

We spent a week here at the end of September with our two year old. The staff could not have been better. They looked after us like we were family. The hotel was spotless and the food was excellent - they even prepared simple pasta dishes for us on request. The location is excellent, being a short walk to both... More

We stayed for a week at the end of August with out teenagers. We chose this hotel based on previous tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. As advised by others - pay extra for a lake view. The staff were very helpful (especially Roberto!), the food was excellent and it was great to have both Garda and Bardonlino so near.... More

The Sportsman Hotel is half way between Bardolino and Garda (20 minute walk along the promenade to both). Our room looked out over the lake and also had a side view looking towards the hills. The room was very comfortable and everywhere was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was served outside, looking out over the garden, and the variety on the breakfast... More

We stayed in the Sportsman for 7 nights in June after a few days in Milan. We took the train to Peschiera Del Garda and jumped in a taxi to the hotel. The taxi was about 33 euros. We could check in straight away (at about 2.30pm) and were allocated a non-lake view room. The room was nice, clean and... More

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in this lovely hotel. The hotel is located in an ideal position on the promenade half way between Bardolino and Garda. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the whole hotel was immaculately clean. Food was delicious, lovely breakfasts served in front of the garden and evening meals served in the restaurant looking... More

A special holiday to mark a special birthday for my wife was called for so after much searching and deliberation Lake Garda, Bordolino and the Sportsman Hotel, was selected partly due to a possible requirement to visit Venice. Although looking a little like a Moroccan Fort or a Foreign Legion outpost, the Sportsman Hotel is excellent all round and that... More

As a couple we stayed at Sportsman 8th - 15th September 2012 half board, and it is the best hotel we have ever stayed in. The place was spotless, we had a large room and bathroom. Food was excellent and they catered v well for me being vegetarian. The hotel is ideally situated to walk to Garda and Bardolino itself.... More
