We stayed for a week in sweltering July and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. We were in a suite, so lots of space and a huge balcony overlooking the lake and mountains. The breakfast buffet was good and the staff were welcoming and helpful. The free bikes were particularly useful to cycle along the lakefront into the town centre for dinner... More

Myself and my husband visited Hotel Maximilian for our first wedding anniversary in August. Upon arrival in Val de Sognio (the valley of dreams! :) ) we were directed down a small dark lane and told we would find the hotel reception on our right. I was wondering where we may end up but once in the hotel we knew... More

We have recently returned from 2 weeks staying at the Maximilian Hotel near Malcesine. Our room was very nice with patio doors which went straight out on to the garden with views of the lake. The food was absolutely excellent. Initially we were a bit taken aback that we had to order what we wanted for dinner at breakfast but... More

Is Italy’s hotel star system the same as in other countries? No – this is a critical point, and a common misconception. You see stars, you see the same number of stars in the range, and you think it’s the same system. It’s not. As I understand it, the hotel star system in Italy does not equate to the general... More

Stayed 7 days in this wonderful Hotel. Situated on the shores of Lake Garda at the northern end of the lake. We had a superior room which was facing the lake. Room was large and had all mod cons. Extra large bed. Very comfortable. Large wardrobes a bonus. Nice two seater settee. Television with Sky and able to BBC .Bathroom... More

I sometimes wonder what people expect when they book a hotel. Gold-plated bath taps? An in-house three Michelin-starred chef? Or are they simply the type of person who goes out searching for something to complain about. Some of the criticisms I have read concerning Hotel Maximilian are beyond belief. We have just had a wonderful stay there. The room was... More

Well, where do I start! The Maximillian was great from start to finish. We stayed for 7 nights as part of a Thomas Cook package. And I must say the Thomas Cook rep was brilliant. She had been in the area for 3 years and was a mature lady which I think is much better as they know how to... More

We returned to this hotel as we enjoyed it so much last year and we weren't disappointed. We paid the extra for a suite which was worth it. Lots of extra room and better modern facilities. The view over the lake and mountains from our bed was amazing! The staff were very friendly and the food exceptional as last year.... More

We arrived on Monday 31/8 and stayed for 1 week bed and breakfast. The hotel is located in a stunning location and is perfect for relaxing or enjoying the charm of Malcesine. The hotel is spotlessly clean, all staff are charming and helpful and nothing is to much trouble for them. The snack bar is open from 12.00 until around... More

Make sure you book one of the nice rooms in the new building close to the lake, otherwise do not go there as the old rooms are big, but very old fashioned. The breakfast buffet looks better than it actually is from a quality perspective - the eggs were overcooked, the fruit juices not freshly squeezed ... The service staff... More
