We stayed at this hotel as part of a group. The external appearance is a bit disappointing, but inside, the place is immaculate. The staff are fantastic and couldn't have been more helpful.
There is a wonderful view over Lake Garda from the hotel terrace, which is on the lake front. The hotel was on the fringe of the old part of Sirmione town, and a short walk from the centre. There was no noise disturbance. The food was pretty good, the breakfasts were comprehensive.
Sirmione itself has quite a lot to offer - mediaeval castle, fantastic Roman Villa ruins, colourful streets, abundant restaurants, bars, gelateria(s)!
One niggle: I hate hotels that seem 'mean': whilst the staff/environment etc were excellent, there were no complimentary tea/coffee facilities in the rooms; the shower gel was presented in small sachets that weren't large enough for a complete shower, tap water wasn't available in the restaurant. These are hotel management issues and didn't detract from our enjoyment of the stay.
Finally, and this was annoying, the hotel management issued a notice on the evening of the penultimate day (a Saturday) to the effect that they would only accept 'plastic' payment of excess bills that were over 100 Euros - what a cheek!
