Spent a week here as part of a tour group with Great Rail Journeys. The hotel has a great location right on the lake with a lovely pool area and thermal spa though the sulphur smell of the pool can be a bit overpowering at times. The rooms are fairly Spartan with hard beds, poor hairdryers and no little niceties such as toiletries, slippers etc. We unfortunately had the smallest balcony of the group and could only just squeeze the two of us out there with the small table & two chairs. Also, thought the rail was a bit low and considering the hotel takes dogs, a dog could slip through the gap between the two corner screens. The automatic awning was very welcome however and we did have partial lake views. The free Wifi was much appreciated. As part of a group I feel we were treated like second class citizens with long waits at dinner time and the Hungarian waitress was particularly brusque. The bar lady (older woman with glasses) made it clear she had no time for us and often wandered away for ages. Breakfast was excellent, dinners were fairly good though having to choose your dinner at breakfast time was a bit annoying. The a la carte lunch and dinner menus were good. The Head Waiter and hotel staff coped very well when a woman in our group was unfortunately taken ill at breakfast and immediately called the emergency services and arranged taxis to the hospital etc. They also showed great tact and sympathy for the bereaved. On the whole we thoroughly enjoyed our week and would definitely return to Sirmione but think we would try a different hotel.
