“Just ok! ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Located quite far from the lake - you definitely need a car if you are staying here. Parking is free if you have a car which is good. The hotel itself is fine, nothing majorly remarkable about it. The staff seemed friendly. The breakfast was standard continental. The room was clean and the price we paid was reasonable for Garda. I would certainly not stay here again however and will not be recommending it to friends. I barely slept a wink throughout the two nights we stayed here. The bed was so uncomfortable and the noise outside was unbearable. I woke up a few times thinking there were cars driving through the room!!! It was ridiculously noisy!! Not what you want on a holiday!!

Stayed July 2014

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Lovely, authentic Italian, family run hotel. Short walk into town. Very clean and the staff were very helpful and couldn't do enough for us. Buffet Style Breakfast - good variety, something for everyone including home made cakes/pastries.The food in the hotel restaurant is amazing, good variety including home made pizzas, beautifully cooked food, well presented also used by locals (always good sign) and a good selection of wine available. This may be a 2-star rated hotel but should be a 5-star rated restaurant not surprising as we discovered when talking to one of the family they used to run a restaurant in Bardalino. It was my 40th Birthday while I was there, when I came down for breakfast I was greeted by the owners wishing me Happy Birthday in Italian and showering me with hugs & kisses, I was very touched by their warmth. We booked a table in the hotel restaurant for a celebration meal and the family's special little touches of candles, champagne and chocolate, all provided with their compliments made it a memory to treasure. The whole family & staff were lovely. Our room was immaculate and the maid came in daily to clean and provide fresh towels. We felt very relaxed here and would stay here again. Only small downside the hotel has no pool but you have to swim in the Lake which more than makes up for this. The hotel is on a road so there is some road noise but we were not disturbed by this at all at night the room had air conditioning so you can close the windows. Other than that this is lovely hotel. Do not believe the reviews with comments such as "poor choice for breakfast" or "staff not friendly" etc - we know everyone has their own opinion but don't know where these people stayed as the not so good reviews certainly do not reflect our experience or the friendliness and quality of this lovely authentic Italian hotel. Thank you to you and all your family & staff for making our trip so enjoyable and for looking after us so well. We hope to see you all soon. Ciao Bella !!

Room Tip: Some rooms don't have balconies so if you want a room with a balcony, ask for this when you book...

Quite far from the lake (ca. 1km). Small rooms as well as a small private parking. Breakfast is served as buffet but with no great choice (couple of cakes, some croissant and bread...). Free wi-fi in your room and... Air conditioned too! My room had a strange smell... Did not understand if it was smoke or it has been closed for a long time. There's also a pizzeria downstairs, open both at dinner and lunch.
