A lovely little hotel, clean with great artistic touches, Mother and daughter are fabulous hosts and cannot do enough. The homemade cakes and pastries were beautiful. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Desenzano.

We stayed in Relais Giardino during last week end ( Nov 2013). It was fantastic Vacation. The hotel is intimate, well maintened, with excellent service from Maddalena and Elizabeth that give the felling that each guest is unique. It strongly recommend to stay in Relais Giardino.

We stayed in this B&B in summer last year for 2 weeks. We stayed in the Desert de Tenere room which was a very large room overlooking the garden. The bathroom was very big with a wonderful walk in shower. The Hotel is quite new and very well appointed and is immaculately clean. There is air conditioning/heating in the room... More

I convey my profound thanks to Maddalena and her mother senora Elizabeth for their kindness and hospitality. You made my vacation a real holiday! I stayed here for 1 week with my family and all of us were happy. We stationed ourselves in Il Grande Blu room with great design and cosy terrace. It was great to sit on it... More

We stayed for 3 nights and were very impressed with the standard of accommodation. High quality furnishings and decor, spacious, excellent breakfast, so much choice of personally baked quiches, tarts, pastries, fresh fruits, serials, jams, toast, meats, cheeses, eggs, first class cappuccinos, something seldom offered in this type of accommodation. I had to be strong not to eat too much.... More

We stayed in the Red Lanterns room. It was very clean and modern and everything was lovely, including the breakfast and the location - a very short walk to the main street and the lake. It was very busy at Lake Garda (not the fault of the Secret garden!) so we travelled into the mountains to discover other smaller and... More

We spent two wonderful nights at this great B&B. The location was just a few easy minutes walk to the village centre. Our room was nicely decorated and the bathroom was modern and large. The service from everyone was very friendly and made our stay most enjoyable. Their excellent reviews are well deserved.

We spent several nights in this delightful boutique bed and breakfast. It is so clean and well decorated. Maddalena and her mother are charming and very helpful. Breakfast in the conservatory was always a pleasure with home made cakes and quiche. meat, cheese, yoghurt etc. Very conveniently situated for the town centre - about 5 minute walk.

We spent four nights and were extremely satisfied. It is so well located to be able to get to Venice, Verona or just take a dive around the lake. Madalena and her Mother are so very pleasant and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious and the surroundings very well taken care of. Car parking was so convenient. A short walk brought... More

We stayed in the White room, the least expensive, I believe, and we were very pleased. It has its own little private patio with table and two chairs. The room was very clean, bed comfortable, and the bathroom had a "rain" shower. The property is very nicely decorated with attention to detail. The location was excellent being very close to... More
