“Shearings holiday”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Experience of getting to hotel was excellent. Steve and Kenny our drivers, very knowledgeable and professional. Also excellent tour guides throughout. However, am disappointed with the hotel as badly needs updating. Food basic but edible. All inconclusive not as good as could have been. However, as out every day, this did not impact on our holiday.

Room Tip: Family rooms best as lots of room.

Dear travellers,my wife and I have just returned from our first holiday with the tour company Shearings,we choose to stay at the Hotel Villa Della Rose in Arco all inclusive.
Starting with the journey which was indeed a long one,the organisation with the coaches seemed smooth enough and when we did eventually get our drivers Steve & Kenny the two guys looked after us all very well.The guys were pleasant ,witty and had a good knowledge of the area we visited.

The hotel was far better than the reports on trip adviser would have you believe.The room we were given was very spacious ,clean and we had a nice balcony over looking the pool.

I did use the pool but to my disappointment it was emptied during the week for maintenance and not refilled whilst we were on site.

The food was ok ,but not mind blowing.The all inclusive was ok but a. Little limited,but again it went down ok.Arco town was a short stroll away and had some nice little bars and ice cream parlours.

The lake and surrounding areas are beautiful,we did the local bus into Riva ,good price on bus and from Riva you can get anywhere on the lake.

The people on the trip seemed a nice bunch,so all in all not a bad holiday.

Room Tip: When you stop in Switzerland for a break make sure you have a good amount of money on you for a snac...

We have just returned from our trip to Italy we traveled with Shearings.
The drivers Steve and Kenny were very good and took good care of us.
We stayed at Hotel Della Rose we were a little bit concerned when we read the reviews but we had nothing to worry about.The room we stayed in was in fact a family room it was very spacious and clean.
The food was good and plenty of it the only thing disappointing was the puddings
The staff were very friendly.

Room Tip: The family rooms are very good.

For us the hotwl was not so bad because we ordered no inclusiv. Then the only foo we ate was breakfeast, which was quite bad.
The cleaning was good, but it was many antz in the room so i had to clean my bag and all my clothes at the next hotel.

We visitied the Villa Della Rosa with Shearings with some trepidation having read the reviews. we were pleasantly surprised. Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean on a daily basis. The staff were friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was good and the evening meal was adequate without any frills. Wholesome and fresh is a good description. Set just off the town centre the hotel is surrounded by other buildings but they are not obtrusuve and the mountain views are phenominal. Overall a good experience.

Room Tip: High floor

Excellent drivers and brilliant trips.The views during the outward and return journeys were stunningly beautiful most of the time and worth seeing.It was worth the effort of travelling by coach as the views from the air would have been limited.The coach was comfortable and the weather very good.Our family room was huge, very clean and had a balcony.The situation of the hotel was also favourable and near the lovely town of Arco.I wish I could have stayed longer to explore the area in more depth but I also wanted to do all of the trips on offer.I did not check out the pool so I can't comment on it.
The food was very basic but my vegetarian diet was catered for every day.The food budget was tight but there was sufficient to eat. Sadly there were no fresh fruits or vegetables on offer.There was, however, a noticeable improvement towards the end of our stay.Also, there was a charge for packed lunches on optional excursions which was a little strange for an all inclusive stay.
Overall I had a wonderful holiday.

Shabby hotel but hardly chic. In need of a total makeover. Having said that the staff (all three of them) are very helpful but pretty fed up. One left whilst we were there. There is no manager so these three battle on with no direction. The swimming pool and gym are something of a joke and the outside needs some attention.
It appears that the hotel exists on Shearings clientele as only one or two "others". We were told that it was closed for the winter.
Food passable but don't get too excited with the "all inclusive" tag as the wine and beer are pretty dire. You pay for anything else.
Bedrooms well maintained and lovely central location to a beautiful town. Bike rent opposite and the area has great cycle lanes leading down the lake and along the valley.

Room Tip: Very many different sizes of room so request a larger one.
