Hostess was PHENOMENAL. Margarite was over-the-top helpful, cheerful and knowledgable. Could not have been a better hostess. The location is near the bustling dockside area and busy raods but you would hardly know it. The place is totally protected from sight and most noise. THe up-side is that you are a two minute walk to the water. Since parking and... More

We stayed here in the Coral room for a week from the 16th-23rd of September. The room was spotlessly clean and spacious as was the large en suite bathroom. There was a small terrace to enjoy the late afternoon sun. Breakfast was one of the best we have experienced and we have stayed in the area many times, the homemade... More

We had a spacious room and immaculate bathroom overlooking the quiet garden at the back of the property. Its located just off one of the main routes into town, but we heard no traffic noise as the house is well set back. Breakfasts were served in the conservatory, and the cakes and savouries were a treat. But the best bit... More

Throughoutour stay we were constantly seeing the care and thought put into ensuring the perfect stay. The room was really well decorated with a wonderful shower room and spotless. Breakfast was excellent, served in a bright conservatory. There was a relaxing lounge area and the proprietors were always checking and volunteering help, clearly dedicated to delivering the perfect stay.

The hotel has been decorated so tastefully and breakfast is traditional and delicious. The owners are very polite and helpful. We will remember this place! It's near the lake and Sirmione, which is one of the most quaint little towns we have visited.
