Just back today from a week's stay at Sportsman Hotel, Bardolino and I can't say enough good things about it. Where do I start? We received a lovely warm friendly greeting from the staff on reception who were always on hand to help should you need it. The hotel is well kept, very clean with well equipped rooms including robes... More

We have been thinking about trying the Sportsman for some time but price and location have generally been the deterring factors. On this occasion, that of the Bardolino Wine Festival, everything more centrally located was completely booked (and we booked well in advance). As it turns out, we were very happy with the choice. The rooms are nice. Property well... More

Overlooking Lake Garda with lakeside views and its own beach this was situated in a fantastic spot half way between Bardolino and Garda. We had lovely quiet walks past umpteen cafes before sampling the delights of either of the lakeside towns if we wanted more 'life' And the staff, especially the girls in the garden bar were so helpful and...

We chose the Sportsman for it's position between Bardolino and Garda. We expected a nice location which in fact is superb, what we didn't expect was the quality of the hotel. Everything was absolutely superb. The friendly and helpful English speaking staff, the service, and the quality and quantity of the food. The hotel is nothing to look at from... More

We spent 6 days with very good friends who were celebrating their silver wedding anniversary. The hotel is clean and modern, our room with a lake view was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was self service and the options were limitless, fresh fruit, cereal, continental meats and cheese, pastries and any variety of eggs with bacon, sausage, mushrooms and kidney. The... More

My wife and I spent 10 days there in June '14, staying half-board. I can't recommend it highly enough. The food was excellent, in terms of choice, quality and quantity, with no repetition during our stay. Service throughout the hotel was impeccable and all the staff were extremely friendly and efficient - and their fluency in English was an unexpected... More

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
