I never have high expectations of hotels, have been disappointed too many times, but was pleasantly surprised that the positive reviews that others had left were completely accurate. This is a very comfortable hotel, well located between Garda & Bardolino, a very pleasant 20 minute walk along the lake's toe path to each town. The room was of good quality,...

A fabulous hotel with all the things you expect for a four star hotel. Great room, garden service restaurant and facilities. Location is not in a village gut a great walk to either Garda or bardolino.

Stayed here for 10 nights, staff were very friendly and nothing seemed to big for them...room itself had a large balcony and was spacious enough with a decent bathroom. Facilities were good, and day trips to Venice, Milan were do able. Nearby Bardalino worth a visit.

We stayed for a week in September travelling with Thompson to see Lake Garda. It's a lovely hotel excellently positioned mid way between the small lakeside village of Garda and the slightly larger village of Bardalino. Both Villages can be reached easily on foot. It's a stroll of about 15 minutes/20 minutes along a wide level footpath and bicycle path...
