We stayed in May for a week on a B&B basis, but also ate dinner in the restaurant a couple of times.
First, the bad bit: location. It doesn’t have a lakeside location but sits back behind the main road running through Bardolino. So if you want to wake up overlooking the lake, book elsewhere. However, it’s only a short 200m walk to the lake or a 2 minute walk into town.
Now the good bits. It’s and excellent hotel, great rooms, modern bathrooms (no baths). We had a side room with balcony, overlooking the hills one way and over to the lake the other.
The swimming pools are fantastic! There are two unheated pools in the hotel and a large, heated pool complex across the small road to the rear car park. There are plenty of sun loungers so there’s no need to “bag” one with your towel at dawn.
The hotel provides complimentary bikes, so take a bike and cycle down to Lazise for lunch!
Restaurant: excellent food, pricey compared to eating out but possibly the best food you will eat in Bardolino.
In summary, this is a boutique hotel in a very good position, with excellent staff and great facilities.
