Stayed for 5 days as part of the Great Railway journey break. Very well run hotel with tasty food for both dinner and breakfast. Rooms were cleaned daily and very clean and tidy. Good location for the railway and just a short ten minute walk into town centre. Recommended.

Firstly, I felt uncomfortable staying here as it appeared that guests were constantly under surveillance by some members of the Management. Not something I have ever experienced in any other hotel. I stayed 5 nights with a group (GRJ), the first 3 nights I found the food rather uninspiring and always very salty, however, the last two nights the food... More

Stayed here over New Year. Fairly modern hotel, very large room with zip and link beds. Bedlinen and towels good, but pillows like bricks. No bath, but large shower (which leaked through the glass door onto the floor). Decor seemed quite dated. Absolutely spotlessly clean - you could have eaten dinner off the marble floors. Only one chair in a... More

Stayed here over New Year. Food okay but ordering in advance unusual for a so-called 4-star hotel. Room nice but freezing cold during the day as heating in room and bathroom turned off. Everything overseen by eagle-eyed, unsmiling matriarch. Get fit to stay here as long slog up from lake. Good entertainment New Year's Eve. Very surprised by some of... More

Dear Mrs. Marshall, it’s not true that we don’t accept the criticisms of our customers, in fact, they are very important for us to get better. Sometimes it is not very correct the tone that some people use to write some reviews.. we respond to reviews, and we work year since years, and we assure you that this hotel workswell... More

Hotel Densenzano on Lake Gardasee and within walking distance of the lake, offer their clients a first class service from the time they register until they depart. Even though we were only there for a few days we were made to feel special. Breakfast, absolutely perfect, such a wide variety of local meats, cheeses, fruit, cereals, cakes, yoghurts, jams, biscuits,... More

A lovely comfortable hotel located in a quiet area close to the railway station allowing easy travel to Venice & Verona. About 10 minutes walk downhill to the lakeside. Spotlessly clean premises & rooms with excellent helpful staff. Breakfast is continental & you can eat inside or out in the gardens. Evening meals are absolutely delicious. You can sunbathe on...

This hotel was included in the package we purchased from Great Railway Journeys, a firm which we can highly recommend. The hotel is beautiful. As others have said, it is rather a long way up a steep road from the town, but there are advantages to this as it does help with exercise, and it is only a short walk... More

The hotel is immaculately presented and the staff are extremely helpful. The Matriarch keeps a stern eye over proceedings (it is a family run hotel) and she makes sure nothing is amiss. The hotel is about 3/4 mile up a gentle slope but that only helps burn off the calories you may have put on in the many restaurants and... More

This hotel is fantastic. Meals and staff are exceptional. Thoroughly recommend this hotel. The location is uphill from the Lake so those with walking difficulties might need to use a taxi of which there are plenty. Railway station is 2 minutes away.
