We found this hotel to be well run and the staff very willing to please. Our room at the front of the hotel had a large balcony with a view over the pool towards the lake. In fine weather the buffet breakfast can be taken outside by the pool.

The hotel is in a good location for restaurants cafes and bars also ideal for exploring the many beautiful places on the lake. The only problem was the bar. They couldn't seem to ba able to our a "full" pint (half litre).. I would definitely still go back there again.

7 nights in August. Clean friendly place. Special mention to Adam and Nico, for great service and friendly chat. Hotel is in a great position for access to town centre and ferry terminal. Breakfast could see you through to evening meal easily. If we return to Desenzano, this is the hotel we would choose.

My husband and I stayed here two weeks ago and I couldn't fault it. I agree with other revues as being a friendly,clean and helpful place to stay. We ate a few times in the restaurant and couldn't fault it. It was close to the town but still far enough away from "bustle". For us who usually do self catering.... More
