I don`t normally like big hotels but The Grand manages to combine splendour with friendliness and charm. Our room, (and all areas of the hotel), was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The bathrooms are showing their age a bit but not worryingly so. Fresh flowers very much in evidence. The dining room, although large, manages to be reasonably intimate, with beautifully laid tables and starched white cloths. The waiters are immaculate and friendly and service is excellent. You keep your table and waiter throughout the stay. We were half-board : breakfast is a lavish buffet, with cooked food availableas well as rolls, fruit etc; dinner is 3 course waiter -service with plenty of choice. Dishes are varied and well-cooked and the desserts irresistable. Everything is presented beautifully. The hotel is ideally located on the lakeside just near the boat stop. We went for a stroll alongside the lake after dinner each evening and had drinks/coffee in the bars there (hotel bar very pricey!). Would recommend highly and return without hestation. Dream holiday.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1884 as the first hotel on Lake Garda, the Grand Hotel Gardone testifies the elegance and style of an era. The view of the lake is majestic and very picturesque, and becomes even more impressive with the ever changing light, sun and shades during the day and night. The hotel has 167 bedrooms and Jr. Suites with balcony, offering every comfort with a splendid view of the lake. Refined cuisine with local specialities can be enjoyed at a candlelight à la carte dinner on the terrace restaurant “Il Giardino dei Limoni” by the pool. The menu of the day is served at the lakeside restaurant with veranda, while at the pool snack bar you can have a quick informal lunch. The Winnie's Piano Bar offers the opportunity for a drink and dance after dinner. There is a private beach, a solarium terrace along the lake, heated swimming pool, whirlpool, sauna, steam bath, massage and beauty parlour, jetty for motorboats, internet points and Wi-fi in all the public rooms. ... more less
