This hotel is in the perfect location right on the lake and only a few minutes walk away from the centre of Malcesine. The breakfasts are wonderful on the terrace in the morning. However, the dinners were not so good when I was there in 2013, although they may have improved since then. The staff are wonderful though. I had... More

The location of the hotel was spectacular being on the edge of the lake. The rooms on the front of the hotel were rather small but was made up for by the view, but be advised that music goes on till 11.30pm outside beneath these rooms. The room was tired as was most of the hotel, very 80's, the carpet... More

The hotel was excellent in all respects. There were minor problems when we arrived which were immediately remedied. The restaurant service was fantastic, Louigi, Christina, Latizia and Irene spoilt us with the excellent attention they gave us, nothing was to much trouble. The food was very good quality, perfectly cooked and served. Our room was always spotless but we do... More

We have just returned from a ten day stay at this hotel. After booking and then reading some reviews I was somewhat sceptical. There was no need for my concern. The hotel was nicely situated on the lake front on level ground a short stroll into town. On arrival we checked into reception and were given our room key and... More

Took my partner for a meal which went rather wrong.......Ordered Chateaubriand which was on the expensive side for this restaurant...... It came with chips but we asked if it could be served with roast potatoes which they replied yes.....When we did eventually get served it turned up with potato crisps......I have never in my life had steak or any other...

Just come back from a weeks stay. The Hotel is very basic, but the staff were very friendly and helpful and enjoyed a free drink on arrival while our bags were taken up to the room. Had a lovely lakeside view, but the down side is that live music is played below until after 11pm (not my cup of tea!)... More

Food was ok but ate in the town where food in restaurants is better. Great to sit next to the lake and have a coffee / beer. Pool area very good with a range... More

Excelsior Bay gets a mixed review. Plus side :- Location great - 10 minutes walk from centre and lake front so great views. Staff are friendly and breakfast has a varied selection. Pool area is nice as well. No bar though. Not so good:- many parts of the hotel are stuck in the seventies Décor is seventies stucco. Rooms on... More

Just back from a week at Excelsior Bay Hotel. We had a side room, so the view wasn't good, but we didn't spend much time looking out of the windows anyway. The hotel is one the edge of Lake Garda, and breakfast was eaten on the terrace overlooking the lake. Breakfast was plentiful. We had half board, evening meal of... More
