Stayed for seven nights in September as a couple as part of a Great Rail Journeys tour.
This is a lovely hotel in a perfect lakeside location looked after with great care. The manager and staff are all very pleasant, the outside pool and new thermal sulphur pool are great and the lakeside deck areas are idyllic. We had a very large room with separate walk-in wardrobe and two balconies overlooking the lake. Overall I would recommend this hotel.
However, if you are coming here on a Great Rail Journeys tour I would like to point out a couple of additional facts. You will have a fixed group mealtime, irrespective of what time the day excursions return and this often gives little, or no, time to get ready for dinner and no time for a relaxing drink beforehand. This really did affect the enjoyment of my (very expensive) holiday and would definitely make me think twice about booking a group travel holiday again. Also you are told that your tour has no access to the salad bar in the restaurant and you have to pick your dinner menu at breakfast. This did not detract from the good service we generally received but did come as a bit of a surprise, although I appreciate that this is the deal that has been made between the tour company and the hotel.
Sirmione is beautiful – absolutely charming; but you do need a healthy wallet to eat and drink here.
