“Great facilities and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Stayed in the hotel for a week recently and was very impressed by the service. The room was always spotlessly clean as were the facilities. It's right on the lake so beautiful view. Too cold to swim in the lake in May, but outdoor swimming pool and thermal pool both great, as is wellness centre with sauna etc.
Perfect location, five minutes walk from historical centre but far enough away for it to be very quiet.
Great breakfast buffet, staff very attentive.

After looking through some of the higher rated (on TA) hotels in Sirmione we decided to book the Continental purely based on location and the photos shown. As we've previously visited the area we knew we wanted to be near the historic centre which is beautiful and a nice place to wonder around. We decided against other cheaper hotels that although they are in Sirmione, do not have a lakeside location and you'll need to walk at least half an hour to get somewhere worth being.

The Hotel Continental was a lovely surprise we were expecting a just 'OK' hotel but instead found an immaculately clean hotel with modern rooms and great services. Our room was neat with a generous balcony overlooking the lake. We originally thought we'd spend the weekend touring the lake but in the end we spent most of our time relaxing at the hotel!

The outside area/garden has two pools, one is jacuzzi style with many jets that uses hot water directly from the natural spring which is like a hot bath and the other is a regular pool (also with jacuzzi area) which I presume must also be heated as it was a very comfortable temperature even in May. If you get bored of the pools you can use the complimentary spa facilities which includes Sauna, Turkish bath and other treatments. When you want to go for a stroll, the hotel is just a few steps from the old centre with it's cute piazzas, gelaterias and places to visit.

In summary, we spent a lovely weekend at the hotel, relaxing on the deck by the lake, dipping in the pools, using the spa and taking 'aperitivo' watching the sunset over the mountains. Looking forward to our return!

We stayed at this hotel on a Great Rail holiday, and we loved it. The rooms are spotlessly clean, well-furnished and comfortable, and the hotel facilities are excellent. There is a fantastic thermal pool with every possible kind of Jacuzzi jet as well as a heated swimming pool.
The food is of excellent quality. On our holiday, we had a restricted choice menu, but this was imaginative and well-structured. The standard was excellent.
The hotel is situated near the northern end of the peninsula, outside the main town, so it is quiet, and the views over the lake are fabulous. Breakfast on the lakeside terrace is a real treat.
The great thing about this hotel is the staff. They were all unfailingly polite and cheerful, but best of all was their attention to detail. They notice everything! The manager is obviously doing a great job with his staff, and is to be congratulated.
As you can gather, we were delighted with our stay, and thoroughly recommend this hotel.

We visited this hotel as part of our honeymoon covering Northern Italy. We absolutely loved both the hotel and place of Sirmioni.
We fell in love with it and instantly requested staying an additional night. We had booked 3 nights here before moving onto Milan.
The reception staff were very accommodating and contacted our next hotel and explained we would be checking in a day later than expected.
We didn't regret the decision.
This hotel and little town made our honeymoon extra special.
We would definitely recommend staying here. We didn't have meals other than breakfast the hotel so I cannot comment too much on the food.
The rooms were very clean and staff very pleasant and accommodating.
We would love to visit here again.

Visited as part of GRJ and upgraded our room in advance. Giovanni was excellent in communication and very friendly when we met. This is a very good 4 star hotel in an expensive location: not perfect, but excellent vfm. Food is variable, but, the hotel probably operates on very tight margins and does a great job - plenty of good restaurants near-by! Will definitely return when we're next in the region. Recommended.

My husband recently wrote a review on this Hotel to which the manager responded with false details. He mentioned that we had booked two rooms and one of them was upgraded, which is absolute nonsense. We only booked one room which was without doubt the worst 4 star room we have ever stayed in and we are regular travellers. He also mentioned that my husband was unfriendly towards his staff, when in fact we loved the staff and the only unfriendly person at the Hotel was the manager himself. We did request a better room and offered to pay more, and he informed us that the Hotel was full. Fair enough, but one is entitled to keep trying in case of cancellations...or not ? Apparently such a request makes one unfriendly !! In retrospect we should have taken a photo of the room. The TV was pre- historic and we never bothered to switch it on for fear that it may be Black and White or blow up. Don't book a standard room at the Hotel Continental, its sub-standard.

Room Tip: Don't take a standard room only a Lake View.
