First time in Italy and it has made a great impression, weather was great, even the thunderstorm was impressive! The staff were brilliant, Cath had a gluten allergy and they could not do enough to provide alternatives at meal times, most impressed, our thanks have to go to Michaela and her team they were wonderful. The location was great, a... More

Stayed here for 11 nights with 2 sixteen year old boys..We had bed and breakfast but chose to eat at the hotel 3 times including for the weekly barbecue. In the evening if you aren't on half board you can either choose from the 5 course fixed menu with some choice at €19 or go a la carte. All meals... More

Loved our stay here. It's on the lake with its own private beach, that works really well. Hotel staff all friendly and attentive. It really is only a 15 min walk in either direction to get to garda or Bardolino so you get the best of both. Breakfast was great each day (we really liked the pancake station) and snacks... More

The Most Magical hotel I have seen right on the lake in Garda! Brilliant Food consisting of 5 courses and Michela the Maitre De and all the smiley staff felt like a family after 2 weeks and we were sorry to leave them. Ideal for Ferries or the Rapido anywhere on the lake. Based about 15minutes from Garda and 20... More

This is our second holiday in this hotel, we love that the hotel is right on the lake front and is just a fifteen minute walk from Garda and twenty minutes from Bardalino. The hotel provides a mini bus if you don't like walking. A free lake cruise is provided every Wednesday, the crew are very friendly and informative, free... More

What a wonderful week we enjoyed at this superbly maintained and run hotel. The food (5 courses!) was excellent and well presented. Our lake view room (recommended) had a wonderful vista, what a view, fabulous. We ARE going back as soon as we can.

The staff at this hotel are so so good - nothing is too much trouble. The only problem is the position - if you are fit and can walk for miles you will be fine. But if you cannot walk for any distance and cannot ride a bike you are stuffed. The distance to Garda is shorter than Bardalino and... More

My husband, myself and our two friends have recently returned from a holiday at the Sportsman hotel. We stayed from the first of June until the eleventh and were allocated rooms 313 and 314. We paid extra to get a lake view and we were not disappointed. The views are spectacular and listening to the waves in the morning was... More
