Chose this hotel because it has a large pool, aircon and lake view at very reasonable rates and decent reviews. Not disappointed in most aspects.
Pros. So clean and sparkling throughout and lots of art deco style stained glass in lobby area. Very comfortable patio area at front and two gardens with lots of shady areas and some outdoor equip for children. Good size pool for such a small hotel and masses of sunbeds so no need to save with towels - but they still do! Owners very friendly and accommodating and arranged cheap transfer from Verona airport too. Good choice breakfast and reasonably priced drinks.
Side lake view lacks privacy as apartment block next door very close (especially room 25 which we had) but good sized balcony with chairs, table and we've had worse lake views than this elsewhere. Reasonable sized bedroom with modern furniture and well equipped. Excellent aircon. Compact bathroom with tiny shower but super shower head and pressure so not complaints there.
Cons. Beds very hard and squeaky with even smallest movement causing noise all night long - they do need replacing. Location at top of town so bit of a trek up hill which gets a bit tiriesome if you have bad knees like me and no lift so not suitable for anyone with walking disabilities.
Overall excellent stay and would stay again which is unheard of.
